Static arrays are passed by value.

(Also I think you're right about Mb vs MB except it should be 
MiB. 1MB = 1000^2 (decimal) and 1MiB = 1024^2 (binary).
Note that MB is defined 1024^2 in JEDEC 100B.01 but, IMO, ISO 
standard is superior because it's unambiguous and JEDEC only 
defines units up to GB (inclusive))
