with myFunc[]:={whatever}

you see from the code, that calling myFunc[] will 
do more than
just copy something from the memory.

It make the code clearer.

| Hi
| For a "function" with no argument, what is the 
difference between:
| myFunc:=(whatever)
| and
| myFunc[]:=(whatever)
| I find the first syntax simpler, but there are 
many built-in
| Mathematica functions that use the second one.
| Thanks
