The compiler tells you exactly what's happening: you're trying to assign a pointer ('long*' or 'int*') to a 'long' variable. That won't work, especially since you're multiplying it by a huge number first.
Either dereference it first, or do yourself a favor and use references instead of pointers.


The e_place() function should NOT be taking pointers. Learn about pass-by-reference, instead.

Then, you don't need to deal with pointers.
