    Yeah, alpha, header files are the most necessary uses for #define. Your welcome for the explanation.

    I want to know why? thanks.

    alpha, here are the reasons for using const instead of #define:

    they obey the language's scoping rules
    you can see them in the debugger
    you can take their address if you need to
    you can pass them by const-reference if you need to
    they don't create new "keywords" in your program.
    You forgot about the bad, nasty macros that should be replaced with inline functions...
    If you speak or are learning Spanish, check out this Spanish and English Dictionary, it is a handy online resource.
