    passing reference more than once

    What is the right way to pass reference to string from one function to another?

    For instance:

    Code:
    class someclass {
    public:
    	someclass(std::string &test) { somefunction(test) }
    	
    	void somefunction(std::string &test) {
    	}
    }
    Is this a right way to do it, if I want to pass it more than once/twice.. ?

    That's correct.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
