[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] [Date Index] [Thread Index]

Right, I know that this works, but what if I have say 80 parameters.
My solution in the end was to pass tables into the function.  I think
a cleaner solution might be to use some kind of class structure as
opposed to global functions like I'm doing now.  Anyway, I got the
scoping thing in my head now so I know what doesn't work.

Here's a simple example of what I believe Roberto is suggesting.  It works
well for me.  Am I missing something?

function gen(val)
  return function()
