SE450: Basics: Activation [24/63] Previous pageContentsNext page

Each function call (or activation) creates an instance of the function variables (including parameters).

The variables are stored in an activation record instance (ARI).

The period from activation to return is the lifetime of the ARI.

We can draw ARI's, including an instance number to distinguish them.
