    When should use Inline Function: If your function has less instruction (means less statements) i.e. you can understand when function is very small, then make that function as inline.

    Advantages Of Inline Function: : First you have to understand normal function call senario. If any function call then a stack frame is created in which some context is saving like function arguments, return address etc. Actually this is overhead in a normal function call.
    In case of Inline function called, No stack frame is created. So this overhead we can save, but only for small function.
    NOTE: One thing more when we are wrinting inline function, menas we are requesting to compiler, Now comppiler see If Instructions under function
    is less then complier treats as a inline else normal function call.

    Advantages of pointer over Array: : Pointer can be incremented or decremented but in case of array, you cannt change base address of any array so you cant do such incremented or decremented operation on array to move one place to other. ( You can get anywhere more advantages)

    FILE POINTERS: : File pointer has very important role to read and write into secondary device(I/O) i.e. into files. By file pointer. By file pointer you can reach anywhere in the file any place means easily search, edit, delete etc.
    You can do this by indirection but multiple file reading writing you can'nt do . SO accessing multiple files, file pointer can handle.

    CONVERSION FUNCTION: : This concept is mainly come into c++
    class temp
        operator float() { return f; }
        float f;
    int main()
      temp tObj;
      float f1= tObj;     // temp type is converted to float type
                          //due to we provide  a member function
                          // operator float() function which retun
                          // a float value.

    If any doubts just straightforward ask?
