set option flag in function definition
Posted:

Dear Experts,
I had one question regarding to the function definition.
I want to have a function that executes certain operation when I chose the corresponding option flag.
For example,
a function called "f"
when I call it like f[arg1,arg2,arg3, optionX] it executes command arg1/arg2+arg3
If I call it like f[arg1,arg2,arg3,optionY] it executes command arg1*arg2arg3
If I call it like f[arg1,arg2,arg3,optionSomethingElse] it returns me "No appropriate option flag was found. Please indicate correct options"
This looks a bit like scripts running in UNIX. I am wondering if I can do the same in Mathematica easily?
Thank you so much for your kind help!
