    Well "gif" has a set pronucation setforth by the creators. As such there is no argument.

    @OP: The way I've always understood it is, as the class is being constructed, everything in the ':' section of the class constructor is basically a list of the parameters to pass to each of the member variables' constructors as they in turn are being created. If you have a member variable which is an object of another class that doesn't have a default constructor, then you are required to specify parameters in the ':' block for that member; otherwise, the default constructor is used. The same goes for POD types: You can choose to provide a value for its 'constructor' (or initialization for POD types, maybe), or you can choose not to - but in the case of declaring a const variable, there is nowhere else in your program that you can give it a value, so it must be done in the ':' block via the constructor argument.

    Don't worry Prelude, we all know you're the smartest Geek around.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    >I see Prelude's avatar problems have finally been resolved
    Yes, I'm happy.

    >What avatar problem?
    I couldn't change my avatar.

    >it's gonna take me a while to get used to that new avatar...
    Just stare at it for a few minutes and the overwhelming cuteness will cause all of your worries to evaporate. Though it may hurt my credibility a bit.

    "Wow, this Prelude person sure seems to know a lot about C++."
    *Look at the avatar*
    "Whoa, neko kawaii! ^_^"
    *Look back at the post*
    "What was I just thinking? I can't remember."

    Last post, by Prelude.. and she's referring to some earlier post, but I don't feel like searching through 20 bazillion pages for it

    **EDIT**
    Hm, reminds me of that world domination thread somewhere...

    Bleh, I'd rather forget about that ordeal. You can record it in the annals for me.
