Well, I wanted I declare it static const first, but then I realized that
it will never be used outside the function, so I dropped the static
before it and kept it just const, but, of course, I know what const is.

I wanted it that way that b can't be changed after initialization, it
would even break the loop if someone would change it in the loop afterwards.

The question though, was that I should remove the const modifier or not
and we're waiting for you to decide this.


Best regards,
