comment Is there any difference between pointers and references?
Well, I wasn't assuming that. I was just objecting to "Functional programming languages will tend to pass everything by value" statement.

I don't think functional languages pass everything by value. Side effect-free behavior comes from immutable values, not copying value on every function call. How would you efficiently implement algorithms with lists, if you had to copy them every time?
