"A reference is an alias, that is, another name for an already existing variable. A reference, like a pointer, is also implemented by storing the address of an object.
A reference can be thought of as a constant pointer (not to be confused with a pointer to a constant value!) with automatic indirection."
Always get a kick in the ass seeing the examples
while hardly obtaining my own.
