: : : : I had a different error in there that was causing it.

: : : If u use const ref. to pass to a function. u r not able to make any change in the funtion.
: : : like...assigning this cell to another.
: : : this would cause error

: : True, but that would cause a compile-time error, not a run-time error.

: how about.....using a cell which is out of range?

That may cause a run-time error, or not.

It depends on whether your program "owns" that memory location. If it does, then there won't necessarily be a run-time error but there will probably be a logical error since SOMETHING lives at that address and you'll probably mess it up.

If your program doesn't own that address, then there should be a run-time error, but that depends on what OS you're using. If you're running Windows 95/98/Me there's a good chance that there won't be a run-time error because the OS is essentially too feeble to detect that your program has done something illegal.

If you're running Windows NT/2000 (and maybe XP) then there will almost certainly be a run-time error.
