Guides/Language FAQ/Explicit Arguments
Why do I get spelling errors when I write x. and y.?
Starting with J6.01, the period is removed from the argument names, so write x and y instead of x. and y. .
If you have code that uses the old names, you can either tell the interpreter to accept the old names by executing
or change the names to the new form by loading the script
fixfile <'filename' NB. e. g. <'c:\Jprogs\scriptname.ijs'
fixpath 'pathname' NB. e. g. 'c:\Jprogs'
