Hello Kevin,
thanks for your contribution!

I think your code could be simplified by using
direct access to t_CLOSURE instead of using strings.

You can access the number of arguments of a t_CLOSURE with
you can also use component():

? f=x->x^2+1
%1 = (x)->x^2+1
? component(f,5)
%2 = ["x","x^2+1"]
