Ruby Language Optional parameter(s) (splat operator)


Example

def welcome_guests(*guests)
    guests.each { |guest| puts "Welcome #{guest}!" }
end

welcome_guests('Tom')    # Welcome Tom!
welcome_guests('Rob', 'Sally', 'Lucas') # Welcome Rob!
                                        # Welcome Sally!
                                        # Welcome Lucas!

Note that welcome_guests(['Rob', 'Sally', 'Lucas']) will output Welcome ["Rob", "Sally", "Lucas"]!
Instead, if you have a list, you can do welcome_guests(*['Rob', 'Sally', 'Lucas']) and that will work as welcome_guests('Rob', 'Sally', 'Lucas').
