 There are some really nice things with arguments in functions, 
 for example:

    f[x_Real, y_Rule, titi___ ] 

 means that you can everything in place of titi, or really nothing.
 Which gives a way to pass options for example in function defined

    f[ funct_ , opt___ ] := Plot[ funct[x], {x, 0, 10} , opt ]

 So my complementary question was, is there a place with all the
 argument stuff clearly explained ?

   Thanks in advance !
