Comma in function call

Hi guys, can someone help me?. While I was studying functions I came across a situacion, example: function soma(n)
soma(1,n, positive).
What I didn’t understand is the use of the comma when the function is called. Could someone explain to me why using a comma when a function is called and the advantage it brings. Thanks :slight_smile:

You must be a Scheme programmer? :wink:


Are you coming from Stata by chance?

This is just the syntax that Julia uses, similarly to C and related languages.
