Pointer and OpaquePointer
Message ID:

I would like to know the difference between a Pointer and an 
OpaquePointer. I have found an entry in the FAQ where it stated that 
OpaquePointer is deprecated.

My problem here is that the use of Pointer at several places gives 
irregular errors, hangups or mysterious crashes without stack dumps. 
There was an occasional error from the C library I use which helped me 
out to look at the proper spot which was at changes I recently made from 
OpaquePointer into Pointer.

I would like to know the difference because then I could make proper 
changes using the Pointer type and leave the OpaquePointer to history.

Thanks in advance,
