I know about it. I mean how to save names of arguments. 
Because usually data structures is complex and they contain many fields.
Method which doesn't the names of the arguments requires to give the 
values for all members. Sometimes some subsets of one structure calculate
 themselves at other places or structure contains many fields. One part of
them get themselves from the pure functions and other do from the action
