Yes,
Perhaps I should have declared char * useless_and_pointless; instead of char * s;.

Yes, I figure that would be correct and I figure that we understand each other.

The basic issue is: "s = (char*) malloc(100);". "s" is cast as a pointer to a memory address. "s" is guaranteed to point to at least 100 bytes (consecutive).
