English Computing Dictionary
◊ DID YOU MEAN INITIALISE?
initialise
To give a {variable} its first value. This may
be done automatically by some languages or it may require
explicit code by the programmer. Some languages allow
initialisation to be combined with variable definition,
e.g. in {C}:
int i ◦ 0;
Failing to initialise a variable before using it is a common
programming error, but one which compilers and automatic
checkers like {lint} can easily detect.
