Hello Gene,

I'm not sure I understand the question.  Your example code compiles and
runs as you would expect.  State is a procedure pointer and debug shows
that it changes its value to the values of the Beginning, Middle, and
Ending procedures on each pass through the for loop.

C allows any pointer to be cast to void and back without loss of
information.  I've never done that with function pointers but it seems to
work.  The compiler is handling the implict casts.

I don't see how this example fits with your earlier question though.  I
must say that Barbara's use of typedef results in a cleaner final
definition than my version but I find both versions warp the mind.
