The assignment pl (0] ='x' will always work; p2 [0] ='x' may work or may cause a run-time error; and p3 [0] '" 'x' will always cause a compile-time error because of the meaning of cons t. 34 Lexical Elements Chap. 2 Do not depend on all string constants being stored at different addresses.

The value of a single-character string constant and the value of a character constant are quite different. The declaration int X = (in t) II AII ; results in X being initialized with (the integer value of) a pointer to a two-character block of memory containing' A' and' \ 0' (if such a pointer can be represented as type in t ); but the declaration int y = (int) • A' ; results in Y being initialized with the character code for 'A' (Ox41 in the ISO 646 encoding). Storage for string constants You should never attempt to modify the memory that holds the characters of a string constant since that memory may be read-only-that is, physically protected against modification.
