When writing a function in Python, do we have to place all keyword arguments so that they come after all the positional arguments in the function definition?
Yes, keyword arguments, which are assigned some value in the definition, must be written after all the positional arguments.
If we do not follow this rule, then Python will give us an error message.
# This would cause an error, because # arg1 is a keyword argument but was placed # before arg2, a positional argument. def func(arg1=10, arg2, arg3=30): return arg1 + arg2 + arg3 print(func(20)) # All keyword arguments must # follow all the positional arguments, so # this updated function would work. def fixed_func(arg2, arg1=10, arg3=30): return arg1 + arg2 + arg3 print(fixed_func(20)) # This will print 60
