Integer pointers vs pointers to integers

Short version: Is there a difference between these two wordings? Long version: In a C quiz question there are two answers that are exactly the same besides that one is talking about "integer pointers" and the other about "pointers to integers". One of them is the correct answer. So the other answer should be wrong and I started wondering, if there is a difference between these two wordings?

Both are same. The terms are often used interchangably, but pointer to integer is more correct.


~ swim ~ Thanks. I thought as much. So I report this quiz question since two answers are correct, but you can only pick one.


Yes should report it.
