In portal3ds, there are accesses to values in structs such as this one: mdl->frames[n1].verts . However, in that case both frames and verts are struct pointers. But here, the syntax used to access them is ".". How come it's not "->"? I've actually serached online for a bit and couldn't find anything. Also, since that's basically the same thing, what are the syntax rules when using struct pointers? (I.e accessing stored adress vs. Accessing value it's pointing to) Thanks for reading, any help is very appreciated! Is this even the right place to post this, btw?
