I checked around the forms a bit and just reread about pointers really. I still couldn't figure out what the problem with this small piece of code is. I have looked though it a few times to the best of my knowledge it doesn't like the apostrophe. Could this have to do with my compiler or O.S.? I'm currently running a Ubuntu distro with a CodeBlocks ide. Thanks guys and sorry if I'm goofing about something stupid.
