i was wondering how to get to the function definition of a function pointer. Currently i have a function which is called in the following way:

iVar = (*DAT)(param_2, PTR_s)

When i press on *DAT i see that it is referenced by several functions. What i am wondering know is what the function definition looks like because i am interested in what the function is doing. How do i get to the function definition from the pointer?

  • @Hakan hi and welcome to RE.SE. Are you new to C also? You seem to be confused about the syntax here also.

Did you find this code in the decompile windows of Ghidra, right?
In my case, it can be like this format: DAT_00000a30.
So if you go to the address 00000a30 in the Assemble windows (press G, and input 0a30), you can find the DAT_00000a30 part.
