Calling conventions are specifications for how arguments are passed, other data preserved, and operations identified when calling a function in compiled machine- or byte-code. Use this tag for questions about choosing or designing a calling convention. Do not use it for questions about function call syntax within a language, unless that is exposing an underlying calling convention.
