"Varargs" is C/C++ (?) name for "variable-length argument lists" for functions and methods, used for example by
printf. In python, this: Arbitrary Function Arguments is what you are looking for (Sections 4.7.3 and 4.74).
This was written since most searches produce junk for this answer. Hopefully some web crawler will find this.
