The statement written above means that a is a special variable(i.e. pointer) that will store an address of another variable which is integer.
then it will be like this-
Here 3465 is address for variable a and 1217 is address for variable b.
NOTE:All variables store integers bcoz address are always integers....
thus if we write
It will not mean that a will store character it means that it will store the address of some variable whose datatype is char.
