  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
 
  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.
