Okay, I'm a decent programmer, but I'm a little rusty. I know about function pointers, and the syntax and some basic implementation.
But I'm only really coming across them recently, and all the sites I've seen which cover them have been ultimately unhelpful in educating me as to WHY they are used.
If anyone can offer some good reasons to use a function pointer, I'd greatly appreciate it.
