Arguments passing mechanism, C/C++ Programming

Arguments Passing Mechanism

C++ supports the following argument passing mechanisms:

i).  Pass by value: A copy of the arguments value is made and passed to the called function.

ii). Pass by reference: This mechanism allows the actual variable rather than a copy to be passed to a

function. One advantage is that it can allow more than one value to be derived from the function, unlike pass by value that returns only one value from the called function.
