If you're having those kinds of problems, you're trying to progress too quickly. Slow and steady wins the race. Just don't be too slow...
@Lahsen2016 maybe because then youd have to pass free a pointer to your pointer?
and then maybe youd have people forgetting to pass the adress of their pointers and shit goes haywire
or maybe they dont want that extra instruction or two to dereference the adress of the pointer
maybe sometimes its not needed to set the pointer to null if its in a local function scope
or maybe they were just lazy
lots of maybe
