Predict the output or error(s) for the following Code

Ram Pothuraju
void main()


int const * p=5;



Compiler error: Cannot modify a constant value.


p is a pointer to a "constant integer". But we tried to change the value
of the "constant integer".

Program was tested under Turbo C/C++ compilers.

It is assumed that,

  • Programs run under DOS environment,
  • The underlying machine is an x86 system,
  • Program is compiled using Turbo C/C++ compiler.

The program output may depend on the information based on this

assumptions (for example sizeof(int) == 2 may be assumed).
