Does the order in which keywords appears in a function definition make any difference? ie. what''s the effect of switching between: inline int const getWidth() { return width; }; inline int getWidth() const { return width; }; const inline int getWidth() { return width; }; or any other valid orderings?

Well,
inline int getWidth() const;
means that the ''this'' pointer is const, and so the function does not change the object. However, the other two mean that the return value is a const int.
