figured out why i'm at home with machine code or Python but can't for the life of me do something in the middle like C: if i'm forced to use pointers, but can't manually pick an address something's made at, my mind can't deal with it.

    Develop your own OS: You are free to use any memory address (but you will find out soon enough, that this doesn't make easier for many things).

    @sbiewald that was quite a jump from "arbitrary pointers give me a headache" to "make your own damn OS then!"

    @Parzi Sure, an own kernel module is enough. Or you can work on an embedded system maybe.

    I've never understood what people find so difficult about pointers.

    @Fast-Nop Without manual control of them, sometimes they stop working. Sometimes you're not even the cause, either!
    It's like working on a car, but sometimes parts disappear from the car out of nowhere.

    @Parzi Pointers don't just stop working, just like data variables don't either. If code suddenly stops working, it's because the dev has put bugs in it.
