    By "atomic types" I take it that you mean the integral types like int and char. If so, then I say yes.
    Code:
    int x; // uses default constructor
    int y(0); // uses copy constructor

    Yeah, I mean the built-in keyword types where you put "int" or "char" for instance. Thanks for the replies.
