Subject: Re: [docbook] Repeated *parameters*?

2008/7/18 Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com>:
I just noticed that methodparam has @rep. Does this make any sense, or
is it an editorial accident? I can't think of any languages for which
it makes sense.

req (required) or rep (repeat).

Many languages allow a variable number of arguments. If the argument type is generic, then rep="repeat" would be a valid way to represent that.
