This function creates a pointer moniker based on a pointer to an object.
WINOLEAPI CreatePointerMoniker( LPUNKNOWN punk, LPMONIKER FAR* ppmk );
[in] Pointer to an IUnknown interface on the object to be identified by the resulting moniker.
[out] Address of IMoniker* pointer variable that receives the interface pointer to the new pointer moniker. When successful, the function has called IUnknown::AddRef on the moniker and the caller is responsible for calling IUnknown::Release. When an error occurs, the returned interface pointer has a NULL value.
A pointer moniker wraps an existing interface pointer in a moniker that can be passed to those interfaces that require monikers. Pointer monikers allow an object that has no persistent representation to participate in a moniker-binding operation.
Pointer monikers are not commonly used, so this function is not often called.
