I also certainly agree with that. Moreover, the documentation and docstring uses the name "address" and "addr" respectively which are misleading because it is asking for ctypes.c_char_p or ctypes.c_wchar_p which are C pointer types, it is not asking for the address of instances of ctypes.c_char_p or ctypes.c_wchar_p. Therefore a change in the documentation and docstring is required.

Note - If this issue is confirmed then I'll submit a PR to apply the change as described in this issue.
