This is documented in [U]. 

Consider the simplest kind of case: 

program myprog 
	args a b c 
	...
end 

myprog 1 2 3 

will result in 1 being mapped to `a', 2 to `b', 3 to `c'. 

However, any program you want to have -if- functionality
should be set up using -syntax-. It's not impossible 
otherwise, but you'd be ill-advised to do it otherwise.
