set_args

Set task arguments.

If less than the required arguments are given, then the remaining arguments will be set using nil. A num_arguments_err() is raised if the task too much arguments are used.

When the task is created in the @thingsdb scope, only (some) immutable types like int, float, str etc. can be used as argument values.

This function generates a change.

        if (x < 10, {
            log(`x = {x}`);
            task.again_in('seconds', 10);
