Function Argument Typing

You can declare the type of each argument passed to a function. Calls that don’t match these types will fail at runtime.

To declare a type, append a type token to the argument with a colon :.

// Take a (n)umber and a (s)tring
fn countItems($num:n, $itemName:s) {
    print('You have ' ~ $num ~ ' ' ~ $itemName)

countItems(3, 'tacos')
//= 'You have 3 tacos'

countItems('tacos', 3)
// ✕ ERROR. Arguments are reversed.
