    enforce arguments

    "This analysis revealed the surprising result that, although the three semantics are closely related, it may be arbitrarily more difficult to enforce arguments using stable rather than semi-stable semantics, and also using semi-stable rather than preferred semantics."


    Would you please explain what "enforce arguments" means?

    Above context is about programing. I cannot understand your explanation because I cannot determine anyone's position there.

    Thank you.

    Re: enforce arguments

    My guess is the author was thinking about enforcing rules about the data type of arguments to a function or method.
