    calling class function from constructor

    Hello..

    Can I call function somefunc this way (from constructor):

    Code:
    class someclass {
    public:
    	someclass(int num, bool yes) : num_m(num), somefunc(num, yes) {
    	}
    	
    	int num_m;
    	void somefunc(int num, bool yes) {
    	}
    };
    Thanks again

    Have you even tried to compile?

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

    you put a function call in the initializer list? that doesn't make any sense; did you mean this? the answer is generally yes (there are some obscure exceptions).

    Code:
    class someclass {
    public:
    	someclass(int num, bool yes) : num_m(num) {
              somefunc(num, yes);
    	}
    	
    	int num_m;
    	void somefunc(int num, bool yes) {
    	}
    };

    I know this option is possible, but wasnt sure about calling function from initalizer.
