@liw That seems especially true for dynamic languages or static languages where a function has multiple arguments with the same type.
@cstanhope I agree partially, but it's also true for C and languages like that. A C function that gets a long list of arguments can often easily be called with arguments in the wrong order. It may be a little easier to catch in C, but only when the arguments are of incompatible types.
The number of types I've called strcpy(src, tgt) is scary, and it's not always possible to have src be const.
Or was it strcpy(tgt, src)?
This is not a language comparison fight.
