Yup, it never meant to be C ;-)

I'm just trying to figure out the right "wording" (sp? gr? syn?) of this
operation. My point of confusion is "passing references" vs "taking
references". Is just about semantics, and terminology. A very useless
topic -at least if you aren't interested on compilers, etc-. Also,
because english is not my primary language, sometimes I have troubles
with nomenclature and/or definitions.
