Some examples from the Cookbook (book by Rui Wang & Xuelei Qian) use this 
code snippet, given at page 39.

    class PickHandler : public osgGA::GUIEventHandler
        // This virtual method must be overrode by subclasses.
        virtual void doUserOperations( 
osgUtil::LineSegmentIntersector::Intersection& ) = 0;
        virtual bool handle( const osgGA::GUIEventAdapter& ea, 
osgGA::GUIActionAdapter& aa )
            if ( ea.getEventType()!=osgGA::GUIEventAdapter::RELEASE
            ||!(ea.getModKeyMask()&osgGA::GUIEventAdapter::MODKEY_CTRL) )
                return false;
            osgViewer::View* viewer = dynamic_cast<osgViewer::View*>(&aa);
            if ( viewer )
                osg::ref_ptr<osgUtil::LineSegmentIntersector> intersector = 
new osgUtil::LineSegmentIntersector(osgUtil::Intersector::WINDOW, 
ea.getX(), ea.getY());
                osgUtil::IntersectionVisitor iv( intersector.get() );
                viewer->getCamera()->accept( iv );
                if ( intersector->containsIntersections() )
                    osgUtil::LineSegmentIntersector::Intersection& result = 
                    doUserOperations( result );
            return false;

I couldn't compile examples 1 and 2 from chapter 2, and example 1 from 
chapter 5.

I'm using Debian 10 and the latest version of OSG. My command to compile 
the last one is:

$ g++ cook5.1.cpp -losg -losgAnimation -losgGA -losgUtil -losgViewer -o 

I get the following error message:

cook5.1.cpp: In member function ‘virtual bool 
osgCookBook::PickHandler::handle(const osgGA::GUIEventAdapter&, 
cook5.1.cpp:72:62: error: binding reference of type 
‘osgUtil::LineSegmentIntersector::Intersection&’ to ‘const 
osgUtil::LineSegmentIntersector::Intersection’ discards qualifiers
      osgUtil::LineSegmentIntersector::Intersection& result = 

The message is the same in the previous examples. Anyone knows what's going
