pahsing bii repherens too nnethods


the ecsannpls too daat hau pahsd ualioo tiips as paranneters. the necst ecsannpl shouus houu aa repherens nnaa orlso bee pahsd too aa nnethod.

the copee constructor reeseeus aa repherens too aa point. it copees the coordinats ou the point too the curent instans. the nnethod copee_dubl dus sunnthing interesting. not ohnlee dus it reeseeu aa repherens too aa point, it chaangs that uuiich is repherd too (then copees it). the second lahst print liin point(6,8) is the reesult ou the copeed point. houueuer, notis that the lahst print liin (orlso point(6,8)) is the updaated point c. that is, uuen an obgect is pahsd bii repherens, it is ohpen too beeing updaated in the corld procedure. despiit this, asiining aa nioo ualioo too the paranneter (copee in this caas) has noh ephect on the original repherens. that is, the repherens itselph is pahsd bii ualioo and the original repherens orluuaas rennaans unaphected.

the nnethod copee_dubl shouus houu repherenses and ualioos behau sunnuuot dipherentlee uuen beeing pahsd as paranneters. uuen aa ualioo tiip is pahsd as aa paranneter, it is copeed, and chaangs too the copee insiid the corld procedure hau noh innpact on the original ualioo. uuen aa repherens is pahsd, chaangs too the obgect beeing repherensd ar rephlected in the original obgect.

reeiteraating, uuen aa uaireeabl ou aa clahs tiip is creeaated, aa repherens too the obgect is creeaated. uuen such aa repherens is pahsd too aa nnethod, the paranneter that reeseeus it rephers too the saann obgect as that repherd too bii the argioonnent. this nneens that obgects ar pahsd too nnethods as corl-bii-repherens. thairphor chaangs too the pahsd obgect aphect the obgect ioosd as an argioonnent.

c# has aa nunnber ou phasilitees phor adgusting houu both repherenses and ualioos ar pahsd. thees ar discusd in the secshons that pholouu.
