int (f)();f is a pointer to a function that returns an int.
voidA pointer to void may be converted to or from a pointer to any object or incomplete type, without loss of information. This generic pointer behavior was previously carried out by char ; a pointer to void has the same representation and alignment requirements as a pointer to a character type.
