Constructor: It is a method which has the same name as the class which is used to create an instance of the class.

Copy Constructor: Used to create an object by copying variables from another object of the same class. The main purpose is to create a new object from an existing one by copying variables.

What is this weird colon-member (" : ") syntax in the constructor?

Foo(int num): bar(num) In C++, this is known as a Member Initializer List. Simply put, it sets the value of your member bar to num. There is a significant difference between initializing a member with the Member initializer list and assigning a value to it within the function Object() { [native code] } body. When you use the Member initializer list to initialise fields, the constructors are only called once, and the object is constructed and initialised in a single operation. If you use assignment, the fields will be initialised with default constructors and then reassigned with actual values (via the assignment operator). As you can see, there is an extra overhead of creation and assignment in the latter, which may be significant for user defined classes. Cost of Member Initialization =Object ...READ MORE
