Yes. The previous line (line 52) contains an expression


The data type is

	int argc;
	char **arg;

And arg contains strings only used in C (command line arguments).
Could you please improve the heuristic to support the addition 
of an address and an integer? Or must I rewrite the expression to
something such as

	(char**)((unsigned int)arg+(argc+1)*sizeof(char*))
