Explanation: See following declarations to know the difference between constant pointer and a pointer to a constant.
int * const ptr —> ptr is constant pointer. You can change the value at the location pointed by pointer p, but you can not change p to point to other location.
int const * ptr —> ptr is a pointer to a constant. You can change ptr to point other variable. But you cannot change the value pointed by ptr.
In the above program, ptr is a pointer to a constant. So the value pointed cannot be changed.
