What will be printed out as a result of program execution?
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

void init(int *x)
    x = new int;
    *x = 50;

int main()
    int v = 100;
    cout << v;

    return 0;
Since the pointer is passed to the void init (int *x) function by value, it points to another memory location where number 50 is written after its change in the line x = new int. As a result, the memory allocated by the init function leaks and 100 is displayed on the screen.
