Hi Arun,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

This forum is for asking questions about Java performance issues. Similarly, all the other forums concern Java, not C++ (although the "General Computing" forum might be a place for a question like this.) If you've got more C++ questions, it'd be better to take them somewhere else besides JavaRanch.

Rather than move this thread to General Computing, though, I'll answer it just this once: No, in general, there's no difference. In fact, something like



and something like



will generally compile to identical machine code.

And to bring this thread on topic, the same is true in Java, isn't it?
