You can also generalize composition with the B Combinator or “compose” that we saw in Combinators and Decorators: 1 2 3 4 5 function compose (a, b) { return function (c) { return a(b(c)) } } 6 7 var cookAndEat = compose(eat, cook); If that was all there was to it, composition wouldn’t matter much. But like many patterns, using it when it applies is only 20% of the benefit. The other 80% comes from organizing your code such that you can use it: Writing functions that can be composed in various ways.

They should be closer. Is there another way? Yes. ” One, Scheme, uses define-syntax to rewrite let into an immediately invoked function expression that binds arguments to values as shown above. The other, Common Lisp, leaves it up to implementations to decide how to implement let. The first sip: Basic Functions 22 This differs from our example above in that there is only one environment, rather than two. 14159265 to a readable name. JavaScript gives us a way to do that, the var keyword. 14159265; 3 return diameter * Pi 4 5 } The var keyword introduces one or more bindings in the current function’s environment.

It then starts evaluating the expression, including evaluating sub-expressions One sub-expression, function (x) { return x } evaluates to a function. Another, 2, evaluates to the number 2. JavaScript now evaluates applying the function to the argument 2. Here’s where it gets interesting… An environment is created. The value ‘2’ is bound to the name ‘x’ in the environment. The expression ‘x’ (the right side of the function) is evaluated within the environment we just created. The value of a variable when evaluated in an environment is the value bound to the variable’s name in that environment, which is ‘2’ And that’s our result.
