Summary0000273: Named function arguments
DescriptionShort: Better functiona arg definitions
From: Nathan
Date: 2001-12-13
Type: Feature
State: New

In function calls, allow specification of arguments by name:

  foo(1, victim: him, 2);

In varargs function definitions, allow to mark where the optional args
begin, for example with a ';':

  void foo (int i, int j ; mixed k)

The possibility to distinguish between needed an optional argument might be done by using int fun(int arg1, string arg2, varargs int moreargs), although that is a bit more clumsy then just marking the first optional argument.
But I would not define this issue as really important.
