You'll be surprised if you try it Dave....

int AddTwoInts (int& a, int& b)
    int x = a;
    int y = b;

    a = 6;  // Note this line

    return x + y;

int main()
int32_t  m=4;
gint  n=5;

    AddTwoInts ((int&)m, n);

    return 0;  // 'm' equals 6 by the time you get to this line !!

I was surprised too - but it works (!?!)
