Well that is if you Dad used C++. Unless he is using C++ 11, then it would be your Dad’s auto.
If you write:
Returns an error because intk has not been initialized. You can initialize the variable by doing the following:
Then the compiler knows that the variable type is an integer.
This means that if you write the following:
double dblThingSensor(); //Or however you do the case thing, I give up on a standard
Then you write:
auto calcThingSensor = dblThingSensor;
Now calcThingSensor is a variable of type double.
