Post Why no parameters for task functions?
Why is a parameter list not allowed for task functions? I like the prospect of passing by reference to a task...

The lack of parameters on task / thread / process is fairly common practice with Operating Systems.

If you really want to pass some information, then use some global variables to set up values that can then be checked within the task.

Recall that the syntax for starting execution of a task is "StartTask(<name>)". There is no option for parameters.
