A function is a block of organized, reusable code that is used to perform a single, related action. Functions provide better modularity for your application and a high degree of code reusing.

Ideally, you should consider using the single responsibility principle (SOLID) which states that every module or function should have responsibility for a single part of the functionality provided by the software to keep your code maintainable.

Like C and Go, functions cannot be overloaded.

fn sum(x, y int) int {
    return x + y

println(sum(77, 33))

Note: The type comes after the argument's name.

fn full_name(first_name, last_name string) string {
    return first_name + ' ' + last_name

println(full_name("Vitor", "Oliveira"))

Variadic Functions

Functions can also be variadic i.e. accept an infinite number of arguments. They are not arrays and cannot be returned.

fn foo(test ...string) {
    for txt in test {

foo("V", "is", "the", "best", "lang" , "ever")



Multi-Return Functions

Similar to Go, functions in V can also return multiple and with a different type.

fn student(name string, age int) (string, int) {
    return name, age

name1, age1 := student("Tom", 15)


Tom, 15

High Order Functions

Functions in V can also take in another function as a parameter which is usually needed for something like sort, map, filter, etc.

fn square(num int) int {
    return num * num

fn run(value int, op fn(int) int) int {
    return op(value)

println(run(10, square))




  1. Write a V program to find the square of any number using the function.

  2. Write a V program to check a given number is even or odd using the function.

  3. Write a V program to convert decimal number to binary number using the function.

  4. Write a V program to check whether a number is a prime number or not using the function.

  5. Write a V program to get the largest element of an array using the function.
