Description
This could potentially be useful, but the docs only mention the following inputs:
- Variable name(s)
- latex_name
- print_latex_func
sage: x,y = var('x,y') sage: f = function('f', nargs=1) sage: f(x,y) --------------------------------------------------------------------------- TypeError Traceback (most recent call last) /home/mjo/src/sage-5.0.beta12/devel/sage-main/<ipython console> in <module>() /home/mjo/src/sage-5.0.beta12/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/symbolic/function.so in sage.symbolic.function.Function.__call__ (sage/symbolic/function.cpp:3674)() TypeError: Symbolic function f takes exactly 1 arguments (2 given)

Note that
sage.calculus.var.var
andsage.calculus.var.function
are just convenience wrappers ofSR.var
andsage.symbolic.function_factory.function_factory
respectively. Both are augmented to inject the name they define into the global namespace and are therefore only suited for interactive use at sage's toplevel. In any more elaborate program or in library code, you should use the original functions.The documentation of any of those can use improvement, but I'm not sure you want to explain all options in all of their docstrings. Perhaps a good cross reference can save some work.
