I'm not sure I understand the question ....
It's possible to give your function a set of default arguments that may be
optionally omitted so that ftn[x_, y_:10, z_:30] may be called as
ftn[x], which equates to ftn[x, 20, 30] or ftn[x, 60, 70].
You can accomplish a similar effect using optional arguments. This may be
advantageous since you can set global options, then check their value in
various functions in your package, eg,.
SetOptions[pkgOpts, a -> 10, b, -> 20];
ftnA[x_, opts___] := Module[
{},
internalA = a /. {pkgOpts} /. {opts} /. Options[pkgOpts];
(* remainder of function *)
];
The second form is preferable since there's only one version of the function
rather than several, each with different numbers of arguments.
But as I said, I'm not sure I understand the question.
Regards,
Dave.
