what kind of function is findcontour function? For example when this function is used eg: findContours( fgMask, contours, hierarchy, CV_RETR_TREE, CV_CHAIN_APPROX_SIMPLE, Point(0, 0) ); This function takes the return type i.e contours, hierarchy as an argument? What is this technique called in c++? i'm asking cas i am also trying to make a function similar to this but have no idea how this is done.

What is this technique called in c++?

"pass by reference"

(unlike python or go, c/c++ functions can only return a single result)

If you know C++, you should know that if a function should modify something given as a parameter, that something is passed as a pointer or a reference. That's what OpenCV does, but hides it neatly with typedefs.

A contour is a closed curve of factors or line segments, representing the boundaries of an object in an image. In different words, contours signify the shapes of objects located in an image.
