We don't call by reference, we call functions. The arguments passed to the function are passed (not called) either by value or by reference, depending upon the function signature (the prototype).

When you pass by reference you are passing the actual variable, not a copy of the variable, thus the function can modify that variable's value directly. The only exception is when the parameter is declared a constant reference.

Passing a pointer is essentially the same as passing by reference, however the pointer itself is passed by value. To pass a pointer by reference you must pass a pointer-to-pointer instead.

Passing by value always copies the value, whether it is declared constant or not. But if it is declared constant, the function might as well accept a constant reference. Passing objects (instances of a class) by constant value will incur a performance penalty in making an unnecessary copy. If it is constant, there is little point in copying the object.

When we swap values in function, that time "Call by value" swaps copied value not the exact values. so it doesn't reflect on main function. But in case of "Call by reference", we swap actual value which is available at that reference or address.


Call by Value:- In this method a copy of the variables is created and is updated time to time but not the actual memory location is updated.so when we make a call to the function we get old valuesCall by Reference:- In this method we access the variable by the reference of the memory location,so when we make call to the variable we get the updated values.


Call by reference can reduce memory copy operations and allow multiple return values without using code that impedes portability.


A function can only return one value, but it can modify its parameters if their type is 'in out' or 'out'.


In call by value, you can only pass values stored in variables and catch them in other variables, actual variables are mostly unaffected (value of only one variable can be modified in one call). In call by reference, you pass address of variables, so actual variables are modified (multiple values can be modified in one call).


An absolute reference. When the formula is copied, the absolute reference will not change.


In .NET: Both are passed by pointer. However, call by value the actual value (caller value) passed will not change. Call by reference the actual value (caller value) passed will change.


In spreadsheet applications, a reference to a particular cell or group of cells that does not change, even if you change the shape or size of the spreadsheet, or copy the reference to another cell. For example, in Lotus 1-2-3 and other spreadsheet programs, the cell reference "$A$3" is an absolute cell reference that always points to the cell in the first column and third row. In contrast, the reference "A3" is a relative cell reference that initially points to the cell in the first column and third row, but may change if you copy the reference to another cell or change the shape and size of the spreadsheet in some other way. Absolute cell references are particularly useful for referencing constant values (i.e., values that never change).


No , Java does not support call by reference.


No, call-by-reference can be emulated with pointers.

The final keyword indicates that a variable (identifier) can not change his value. In case the variable refers to a reference variable (an object) the values of variables inside (the object) can change but the reference can be reassigned (to another object).


Very easily: there is no call-by-reference in C.


Call by reference does not necessarily mean you want to change something. It simply means that you are passing a pointer to the object rather than the object itself. This can be cost effective if the object is large, in comparison to a pointer. Making the call by reference const is an effective tool for doing this when you do not intend to modify the object, and you want to make sure you don't accidentally do so.

Arrays are reference type. array values are always pass by reference.

A Relative reference will change. A mixed reference can also change. Only an absolute reference will not change. See the related question below.


In fact, laws can be establish because of values. People creat laws depending on the values of their society, so values change laws.


IF it is a relative reference, then it will change. A mixed reference may or may not change and an absolute reference will not change. See the related question below.

first you need to understand the formal and actual parameter.An actual parameter is the parameter passed to a function while calling it, a formal parameter is a parameter to which the values passed from the calling function is assigned.When a function is called and a copy of values of actual parameters is passed to the called function, it's called as call by value.When the address of actual parameter is passed to the called function, it's called as call by reference.e.g.if int a,b; is a declaration in a calling function and a function call to a function having prototype, int add(int, int) is made i.e.add(a,b) ;then it's call by value.And if function call to a function having prototype, voidadd(int* , int* ) is made i.e.add(&a,&b) ;then it's call by reference.Answer:There is only call-by-value in C; you can emulate call-by-reference using pointers.


If you are calling by reference it means that compilator will not create a local copy of the variable which you are referencing to. It will get access to the memory where the variable saved. When you are doing any operations with a referenced variable you can change the value of the variable.It is a technique whereby the called function receives values from its calling function, stores these values in its local arguments and returns a result. The called function does not have access to any local variables in the calling function. Anything passed into the function call is unchanged in the caller's scope when the function returns.No, C uses call-by-value. Of course you may use pointers as parameters.


In call by value a copy of the variables is passed to the function, whereas in call by reference the address of the variables is passed to the function. call by value and call by reference are terms used in Visual Basic but it is pass by value and pass by reference. This looks like a question for Visual Basic rather than C.
