Default cannot be used as an argument name in cfscript. Since we can now use default for a function name, we should be able to use it as an argument name too.Understandably usage of the argument requires arguments.default to prevent ambiguation with the default clause of a case statement.

[vmannebo 5/3/10]

public string function default(required string default)
{ return default; }


Invalid CFML construct found on line 138 at column 33.ColdFusion was looking at the following text:defaultThe CFML compiler was processing:A script statement beginning with public on line 138, column 9.A cfscript tag beginning on line 1, column 2. The error occurred in /Library/WebServer/Documents/testing9/testsuite/function_declarations.cfm: line 138136 : 137 : // Special function names138 : public function default(default) \{}

Agreed. This needs to be fixed.

The parser should be able to distinguish between the usage in a function signature and a switch statement. Plus if it works in tags, it should work in script.

Possibly relevant: <cfscript> function f(numeric default=1) {writeDump(serializeJSON(ARGUMENTS));} f();//returns {"NUMERIC":1} on CF2016 and {"default":1} on Lucee </cfscript> Thanks!, -Aaron
