For the interested reader: see [1].

Unfortunately:

--quote--
First, symbols.  Read

     *          as "pointer to"                 - always on the left side
     []         as "array of"                   - always on the right side
     ()         as "function returning"         - always on the right side

as you encounter them in the declaration.
