 the meaning of ,*, in documentation
i know i asked this long ago, but i never did get an answer. in the specification of many functions and methods it gives a ,*, in the list of arguments. i cannot find any description of what that means. i have been ignoring it and had success, anyway, but this worries me and i am still curious. i tried to search for my old thread but it seems the search means can't handle ,*,.
What do you call someone who speaks three languages? Trilingual. Two languages? Bilingual. One language? American.
All arguments after * are mandatory keyword arguments. For more info check PEP3102 Keyword-only arguments
Note, when I say "mandatory", I mean that IF you want to supply any of them it should be as keyword argument, not that it's mandatory to supply them.
