- A function has got to funct, it's that IO thing again,…sure, avoid function as necessary,…and obviously valid, but most functions chew on input,…and do something based on that input.…In this movie, I explore how functions can deal…with arguments or values passed to the function.…You'll see how to declare such a function,…how it deals with values, and how to pass more…than a single value to a function.…This code contains the repeat function,…which accepts one argument, an integer.…
Within the function, the integer variable is named count.…The function is called at lines eight and 10.…Each time, with a different argument.…Inside the function, a local variable, x, is declared.…It's used in the four statement, along…with a count variable, build and run this code.…The function can also accept integer variables as arguments.…Make these modifications to the code.…In the main function, declare integer variables a and b.…
