2 Introduction to Scope s local variables s are declared within a pair of curly braces s are only available from the time they are declared until the end of those curly braces s parameters s are initialized by their corresponding argument (get a copy of that value) s are only available in the function for which they are a parameter Swapping values example s void swap1(int, int); s void swap2(int*, int*); s void swap3(int*, int*); Passing a Reference s address = reference = where it is located in memory s & s before variable name indicates its address rather than its
