hi arun,
            a function is  a seperate procedure or code which will be
actually called by the CALL istruction. [after compilation].

if you put that function as inline when ever there is a reference to that
function the function will not be called but the total procedure in that
function will replace that faunction call statement.

i hope you are clarified.
