functions with optional args?

hi,

does anyone know who to implement a optional argument in javascript. If it's possible that is...

i.e

function cloths(socks,shoes,optional pants){
puton=true
...
}

From all searching all I can't find a yes or no, though when I try it like above I get an error.

    :
    In JavaScript all parameters are optional, there is no special syntax for it. I don't think there is a syntax for specifying default parameters.

    Here's an example...

    function test(x){
    alert(x);
    }

    test(5);
    test();

    Why did you think putting optional in would work? or what language did you come from to get that?
