If you look into error messages you see something like:

"cannot assign to constant" or "l-value required on the left side
of assignment".

The type of variable in your example is char * const and it
cannot occur on left side of assignment (you cannot change it
legally. Try this:)

(char *)variable = "string";

The result is undetermined though:)
