Args starting w/ *?

P: n/a
I have seen functions args that have one or two stars (*) in front of
their names. I was wondering why stars are used exactly. I am new to
Python but as far as I know there is no concept of pointers (or is there?).

Thanks,

I'm quite new to this newsgroup and I found it to be helpfull for my
tiny problems many times so for sure I'm not the one to announce a
leading oppinion.

Nevertheless I think that topics on questions that could be answered w/
a 2 min look into the great documentation are somehow overwhelming the
newsgroup - it's just distracting.

Too be constructive and polite:

This is a common question, but IMO it is relatively hard to find the answer
in the docs unless you know what you're looking for.

Under PythonWin, searching indexed manual, none of :
*, **, argument, arguments, function, signature, keyword, positional
yields the answer
