Comment: For all the friends who didn't get it:
Trapped in, as in spending A LOT of time
a C++ world, the language I'm using lately (oi)
Spidey01 *, a pointer to me
working, probably an integer value (e.g. number of hours) or unrelated pointer
reinterpret_case; convert working's type to a pointer a Spidey01
From the C++ Reference: 'reinterpret_cast is used to perform conversions between unrelated types, like conversion between unrelated pointers and references or conversion between an integer and a pointer.' (source)
for an extra laugh, consider this C and C++ code:
printf("Hi %s", (char*)6);
which should result in a program crash or something equally nasty.
