No. It sounds like you don't really understand the basic concepts
behind functions yet. Try reading the Modules and Functions topic
in my tutorial. See if that clarifies things for you. Getting these 
concepts right at the beginning is very important, don't try to rush 

If confused by one tutorial reading an alternative explanation can
often help - at least it does for me! :-)
