Coercions::void(3) Coercion to Void.


Void void( a x )


x The value to discard


Coerces any value to Void (i.e. discards it), usually used for discarding the result of a function. For example, the HTMLDocument(3kaya) functions for adding elements to the tree return the element just added, which is often not necessary.

 p = addParagraph(doc.body,"Hello ");

Another use is in discarding the return value from database update queries
