Pointer Types

Pointer types are defined using the TYPE_PTR operator and the ptr_type derived class. The ref_type method returns the type that is pointed to by a particular ptr_type node. The set_ref_type method can be used to change this referent type. The size of a pointer type is determined by the target machine (see section Target Machine Parameters); it cannot be changed for individual pointer types.
