Nah, arg as in argument I presume. For programming. It's just still a very vague question.>>2611>>2618
To give a more refined answer;
You never defined what "this" is. Thread start post? Your reply?
And what is it passed to?
But if we go for generalities, of course it's an arg. It's just that if you don't know what the effect on the function is, or what the function even is to begin with, you can't tell in advance what the arg will cause. And undefined behaviour leads to bugs if you're after a certain of finite states. You're just playing with glitches at that point.
You have to be more precise with your arguments if you're after a certain result or answer. Don't expect real answers to bogus input feed. Don't except answers from the correct entity if you don't even specify if you're calling host or guest system. You're just shouting into the wind.
