[Tutor] What's the logic behind parameters and arguments?

Dear list readers,
the command find() takes two parameters, start and end, e.g.:
find(substring[, start[, end]]).
Here, a substring is located UP TO BUT NOT INCLUDING the optional
Compare this to replace(). replace() comes with the count argument, e.g.:
replace(old, new[, count])
But here the substring is replaced UP TO AND INCLUDING to the optional
My question is how I am best to make sense of this discrepancy. Is there
any logic behind this that might make my life easier once I become aware
of it? I know of the indexing rules, but this here is obviously not the
same. I am curious...
