set_timer_args

Set timer arguments.

If less than the required arguments are given, then the remaining arguments will be set using nil. More arguments than the closure accepts are simply removed and thus not used.

When the timer is created in the @thingsdb scope, only type nil, int, float, bool, str, bytes, datetime and regex are allowed as argument values.

This function generates a change.
