#3205 closed Feature Request (Rejected)

[Suggestion] Allow functions to be also defined with the keyword "Function"

Reported by: mexykanu Owned by:

Right now functions can only be created with the keyword Func.

Suggestion: add an option for, or simply allow functions to be also created with the keyword Function.

Why ? It would be extremely friendly for programmers that use other programming languages and got used to the Function keyword. This would save time by not requiring them to rewrite Func in case they declare a function with the Function keyword by reflex.

AutoIt is a language that allows people to code faster than in others. By having to think twice about keywords, the workflow is affected for programmers that come from other languages.

Every language has its keywords list, you need to learn the keywords for the languages that you're using and not expect the language to adapt to you.

Would you expect the authors of other languages to adapt the syntax and keywords of AutoIt just because someone came to that language after using AutoIt? I don't see PHP or Java adopting AutoIt keywords, do you?
