    Please post the question and some code that shows what you are asking about.
    The title makes no sense.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Where did you see the term: instant variable? I've never seen it.
    What does google return for "instant variable"?

    Instance variable is a variable defined in the class also known as the class variable. And i guess you meant to say constant instead of instant?
