Returning Object - another question

Hi there,

This is a follow up question on the previous one, since I already accepted an answer there I am reposting the question here:-)

In this example,

void C::getB(B& r )
{
     B b;
    //do some initialization of B here
    r = b;
}

Can I write directly to r without having to create b?

void C::getB(B& r )
{
     r.somthing = 2; /// things like this...
}

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That works also, since B exists in the scope of the calling function. Yet the naming would be poor, I'd rather call that

void C::SetSomethingInB(B& r )
{
     r.somthing = 2; /// things like this...
}

Thanks you. That was just an example... that is why I didn't bothered about naming....
