I wonder why initailizing an array got an unexpected result

Hi ,all
I would like to initailize an array in root terminal using this way : int d[40]=100
but I could not get the correct return result [100, 100, 100, 100, 100…]
instead get the figure below. I wonder it is normal?
Many Thanks!

cppreference.com → Array initialization
Uncle Google → C++ initialize all elements of an array

Thanks so much. I know the principle . Another question confusing me . I wonder why a[1] a[2] a[3] printing value 2 below? Thanks so much!

Which operating system, which ROOT version.

I do not see this effect with recent ROOT versions (on MacOS):

The version is 6.24.00. OS is windows 10.The compiler provided by visual studio

That’s very old.
Take the “Latest Release”.

That’s a known issue. See [cling,win32] Read-after-write of variable of type `double` does not yield the correct result · Issue #9809 · root-project/root · GitHub
