Codewalkers.com:
Named Arguments Discussion on PHP Mailing List
January 17, 2006 @ 06:54:21

On Codewalkers.com today, there's a note about an interesting bit of discussion going on over on the PHP mailing lists dealing with "named arguments".

There is an interesting discussion going on in the internals list on whether or not to have named arguements in php6. The start of the discussion is here with a break off thread here.

Named arguments would allow you do to something like this:

testFunc(name:"test",vals:"stuff")

Naming the items in the code and allowing them to be accessed via one variable internal to the function. There are some pretty good arguments on both sides of things, but it still doesn't seem like it's going to be taken much further than this...
