    Mutator function Question

    Hi,

    Is it worth doing what ive done in the following code?

    Is it worth checking that I have correctly set the value I wanted to set, or is this almost completely guaranteed and not worth the extra computing cycles?

    code:

    Code:
    bool xViewPlane::setVPlaneH(const int height){
    	vPlaneH = height;
    	if(vPlaneH == height)
    		return true;
    	return false;
    }
    Many Thanks
    -Alex
