Not exactly.  I mean, both are true, but only to a certain
extent.  The use I intended was:

  int *dynamic_array = NULL, array_size = 10;
  dynamic_array = (int *) realloc(dynamic_array, sizeof(int)*array_size);
  dynamic_array[0] = SPELL_MAGIC_MISSILE;

The thing I love about 'realloc' is that if dynamic_array==NULL, it
acts just like malloc().  Of course, you *can* do "*dynamic_array",
but it's not nearly as useful.
