If you just pass endptr to the function, a copy of endptr will be passed (just the same as if you just passed an integer, or the result of any expression). If the function tried to modify that parameter, it would modify the *copy* of the original value, not the original value itself. When the function returned, the value of endptr would remain unchanged.
