Note : All the programs are tested under Turbo C/C++ compilers.
It is assumed that,
Programs run under DOS environment, The underlying machine is an x86 system, Program is compiled using Turbo C/C++ compiler.
The program output may depend on the information based on this assumptions (for example sizeof(int) == 2 may be assumed).
Predict the output or error(s) for the following:

void main()
int const * p=5; printf("%d",++(*p));
Compiler error: Cannot modify a constant value.
p is a pointer to a "constant integer". But we tried to change the value of the "constant integer".
char s[ ]="man"; int i;
for(i=0;s[ i ];i++)
printf("\n%c%c%c%c",s[ i ],*(s+i),*(i+s),i[s]);
Answer: mmmm
aaaa nnnn
