Learning about inline functions and very confused.
When I use an inline function am I not
pushing another activation record onto the stack? If not then how does the inline function know how to return to the function that called it? And where is it exactly if its not on the stack? When the function is copied where is it copied to, RAM? I don't understand this.
If I declare a function inline and then call it multiple times in my program then I will have multiple copies of the function code in my program- I really have no idea what this means. Where does the compiler put all of these copies when it builds the program?
Thanks for any responses.
