    Assumptions in functions

    What are reasonable assumptions (Simplifying assumptions) when writing a function?

    I need a short text on the matter that might be helt as an authority on the matter (e.g. written by MIT proffessor). I'm putting together a letter to correct my test score, which I consider inappropriate, and this is vital.

    If anybody has a link or a direct quote, I would greatly appriciate it.

    Let's see the test questions, your answers, and how they were graded.

    In general, there are none.

    What was the question, and your answer? I would be willing to bet that the grade is appropriate and you just don't like it.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Only what the standard says. not because it's portable (some companies keep the compilers outdated), but because the standard defines the rules for the language.
