My neurons never connected the syntax until some colleague taught me the rule for const qualifier:
You have to read declaration from right to left

int * const x -> x is a constant pointer to an int
int const * x -> x is a pointer to a constant int.

Same for any other volatile, chicken, goose...

Don’tcha just hate it when reality conflicts with what should be?
