I am using a function with a lot of variables. There are 9 and sometimes more of them. In this case, it is difficult to memorize, which one stays on the, say, fourth position, and which one – on the seventh. I would like to be able to include the variable name into the square brackets of the function as a reminder: what must stay here.
For example, let us define a simple function:
f(x)=x^2+y^3. Here is its definition:
One can, however, call it with
y=7 as follows:
This way reminds me of what should stay in the first and in the second position inside the square brackets.
This works, but I do not like that it looks cumbersome. For perception, it would be much better, if the
*) signs are invisible.
