Functions

Cheddar aims to fit both object-oriented and functional paradigms. In order to fullfill the functional end of this spectrum, powerful functional features and lambdas are needed and provided.

A "function" is essentially a block of code which may be given input and can produce output. Think back to your math class:

f(x)=f(x) = \ldots

  • A wide array of functional operators

  • Various functionized actions

  • Customizable argument handling

  • Anonymous recursion support

  • and more.
