There are three possible ways to use this method. First, if you have a named route, you can specify the route as the first parameter as a symbol and any paramters in a hash. Second, you can generate the default route by just passing the params hash, just passing the params hash. Finally, you can use the anonymous parameters. This allows you to specify the parameters to a named route in the order they appear in the router.
