## Possible Issues(1)

Some older references omit the factor in the defining series for the basic hypergeometric function. To express these in terms of QHypergeometricPFQ, add zero parameters until the condition is satisfied. For example, a function according to the old definition can be expressed in terms of as currently defined:
