Since you have specified an attribute on "a", the compiler can infer the 
return type. In this case it's inferred to "void" since there is no 
return statement.

It's not really the attribute that makes it possible for the compiler to 
infer the return type, it probably can in most of the cases. It just 
needs to be an attribute to satisfy the parser.
