I think "char *variable" is better, because if you write "char* variable1, variable2" can be confusing (variable2 isn't a pointer).

That's easy to solve: just don't use that anymore :-)
The reason for putting the '*' to the type is that it is actually part of the type, not of the variable name; I would even consider the outcome of "char* a, b" a bug in the language grammar.

That's not a bug, there is a good reason for that. I can't think of a good example right now, I'll look into that.

Now consider this:

char* variable1, *variable2;


Best regards,
