Topic: Parameter (computer science)

  Parameter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Strictly speaking, parameters are denoted by the symbols that are part of the function's definition, while arguments are the values that are supplied to the function when it is used.
For example, Spearman is a non-parametric test as it is computed from the order of the data regardless of the actual values, whereas Pearson is a parametric test as it is computed directly from the data and can be used to derive a mathematical relationship.
When the terms formal parameter and actual parameter are used, they generally correspond with the definitions used in computer science.

 PARAMETER   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Parameters themselves can be changed by inputs, but usually the parameters determine how input will be transformed into outputs.
In the linear equation y = ax + b, the slope "a" and the y-intercept "b" are the parameters; "x" is the independent variable and "y" the dependent variable.
(Umpleby) (2) In computer science parameter is an entry in a command or routine that must be replaced with specific data prior to execution.

 Parameter (computer science) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Parameters are also commonly referred to as arguments, though arguments are more properly thought of as the actual values or references assigned to the parameter variables when the subroutine is called at runtime.
In the sum subroutine, the parameters addend1 and addend2 are evaluated, yielding the arguments 40 and 2, respectively.
The exact mechanism for assigning arguments to parameters, called parameter passing, depends upon the evaluation strategy used for that parameter (typically call-by-value), which may be specified using keywords.

Parameters are a way of allowing the same sequence of commands to operate on different data without re-specifying the instructions.
The actual value given to a subprogram while invoking it (that is, rock, cake, or car) is called an actual parameter or an argument and the placeholder within the subprogram used to describe the operations on the argument is called a formal parameter or simply a parameter.
Call-by-reference can be simulated in some call-by-value languages like C via pointers: each pointer behaves like a reference to some datum, and while changes to the pointer itself are not visible by the caller (because the pointer was passed by value), modifications to the referenced datum are visible.
