To all:

I seem to be having some trouble with the use of ellipsis in
reference to subroutines. I need to write a subroutine that may have
1 to the maximum number of arguments. It mentions in the docs that
you can use an ellipsis (...) to indicate an unspecified # of
arguments, but I have been unable to find a syntax that the compiler
likes. Can anyone give me an example that will compile?


Thanks in advance,

GaryW

Ok had to search the whole PDF to find what you might mean. I think
what your referring to only applies to Object orientated QM functions,
not standard subroutines. I've not tried OO QM at all myself. Probably
should give it a go seeing as I'm a Native Java man :)

I will get back to you on how to use it, once i've tried. But i can
tell you now, the
SUBROUTINE MyNameSub(PARAM1, PARAM2)
Line at the top of normal subs can't take special (...) syntax, as far
as I know. Someone may correct me.

I'm TRYING it in OO subroutines :-) That's where I'm having a
problem.
I'm just trying to figure out if I'm doing something wrong or if it's
a bug.

Gotcha, sorry. Wasn't 100% sure if it was OO QM you were intending to
write.
As I said, not done any myself, but will give it a go. See if I can
get you an example.
