How can you implement a function that will accept several variables? After all in Perl all the parameters passed to a function are shoved into the @_ array of the function.
For example, what if you are creating a function to send emails. You would like the user to pass in a parameter for the "from" field, one for the "to" field, one for the "subject", one for the "plain text" version of the email, one for the "html" version of the email. Maybe even a parameter for the "cc" and the "bcc" fields.
