Here is a quick example I came up with:
>>> def spam(*args, **kwargs):
... print "Here are the args you supplied:"
... for item in args:
... print item
... print "Here are the kwargs you supplied:"
... for key,value in kwargs.items():
... print key, '=', value
>>> spam(1,'a','eggs',s=0, p=1, a=2, m=3)
Here are the args you supplied:
Here are the kwargs you supplied:
a = 2
p = 1
s = 0
m = 3
In the case of the spam() function, 1, 'a', and 'eggs' are all put into
the sequence args (not sure if it is a list or tuple). The key/value
pairs are bundled into the dictionary kwargs. The arguments have to be
given in the right order though:
>>> spam(t=1, b=1, 'this', 'will', 'fail')
Traceback (SyntaxError: non-keyword arg after keyword arg
