Input/Output Arguments

In Financial Management’s Web object model, many method arguments are defined as “input/output.” However, most such arguments ignore any input value that is specified. In other words, most arguments defined as “input/output” actually operate as output arguments; they are defined as “input/output” only for internal technical reasons.

How do you know whether a given “input/output” argument uses or ignores an input value? If the argument uses an input value, the argument description explicitly mentions the input usage; otherwise, the description mentions only the output usage.
