Hi Shreya,

There are no pointers as in C in ABAP.Instead we have Field Symbols.

field symbol is a reference to a memory location.

for more details go thru these links.

No the question is not on pointers .The question is how to get the reference

to standarad libraries as in C we can get the pointer to a function .
