The man page's wording of:
" a pointer to a char* "
always seemed easy to misread for me, like it is mixing
plain English with C code - if you explicitly refer to
a pointer as a "pointer" then surely the asterisk must
refer to a footnote or something?
Maybe it would be clearer to call it:
" a pointer to a char pointer "
" a char** "
