What is the difference between far pointer and near pointer?

What is the difference between far pointer and near pointer?

Many diff are there :
> A normal pointer can only point to the main memory location, But the far pointer can have an address of any location of ur memory even seconday one also.
> A far pointer is used to access a location which is outside current segment.
> Near pointers are fully recognised and evaluated for their entire width. But in Far pointers only allow normal operations to be done to their offset amount and not the segment or paragraph amount.
