Hi Paul,
>From microsoft word:
Mutable, changeable, Alterable, shifty, Slippery, variable, Uncertain, changing, Fickle, inconstant.
> Ok, I have read these threads but since I'm new to programming I know not > what is meant by the word "mutable". Can someone define this please.
I don't know if there is a more precise definition in computer science but I've always taken 'mutable or immutable' to simply mean 'variable or constant'. There may be some nuiance related to addressing mode but someone else would have to answer that. Ken.
