Introduction

How to swap two numbers using call by reference in C , C++. In the interviews interviewer generally asked the difference between call by reference and call by value. In this post let’s understand what is call by reference and how to swap two numbers using call by reference method.

In Call By Reference method, we pass the address(reference/pointer) of an object instead of it’s value.It means the changes made to the parameter affect the passed argument. By using call by reference method no additional memory is used as we are using pointers. .To pass an address we use (&) ampresand operator.

To declare a pointer in C asterisk(*) operator is used.
int *firstnum; // firstnum is a pointer of int type.
 
swap (&a,&b); // Passing address of a and b.

Program to Swap Two Numbers using Call by Reference

Let’s write a program to swap two numbers using call by reference.

#include <stdio.h>
 
/* Function to swap numbers. */
 
void swap(int *firstnum, int *secondnum){
 
  int temp;
 
  temp = *firstnum;
  *firstnum = *secondnum;
  *secondnum = temp;
 
}
 
main()
{
 
  int a=12,b=13;
 
  /* Pass address of a and b variable. */
 
  swap(&a,&b);
 
  printf("Values of a and b is %d %d",a,b);
}

Important Points

i) In this program i use swap function to swap two numbers.

ii) In case of call by reference method, i have not return anything from swap function. As the variables are referencing memory. If i used call by value method in that case i need to return the firstnum and secondnum variable values.

    When we initialize these type of arrays with any data type, the compiler convert these arrays into that data type at compile time.

    Like value types such as int, double, char etc. We can also pass a reference variable to the method in C# as its parameter which allows us to pass an object to the method and it is called pass by reference to method in C#.

    C# supports multilevel inheritance, suppose we have four classes A, B, C and D. Class A can inherit to B, B to C and C can inherit to D and so on now class D has all public members of class A, B and C include its own.
