Parameter Lists

Several Dylan constructs contain a parameter list, which describes the arguments expected by a function and the values returned by that function. The description includes names, types, keyword arguments, fixed or variable number of arguments, and fixed or variable number of values. The argument names specified are locally bound to the values of the arguments when the function is called. The value names specified are only for documentation.

The syntactic details of parameter lists are described in Methods on page 426.
