argFetch

 

 

Description

The argFetch special form returns the nth argument passed to the current function.

When to use

The argFetch special form is used to access arguments in Lambdas, which have been sent an indefinite number of arguments using the ellipsis syntax form. The number of arguments is only known at runtime.

 

Syntax

(argFetch index)



Name Description AIS Types
index The index of the argument to be fetched. Integer


Returns:

The value of the indexed argument

 

Examples

Here are a number of links to Lambda coding examples which contain this instruction in various use cases.

 

Argument Types

Here are the links to the data types of the function arguments.

Lambda

Here are also a number of links to functions having arguments with any of these data types.
