Like most threads, this one has wandered way off topic. I apologize
insincerely for the fact that this will look on a threaded reader like
a reply to Steve's most recent post.
I have never grasped why people want lambda syntax. The following
is the existing Lua syntax:
> fct = λ (a,b,c) → 10*(10*a+b)+c ▪
> print(fct(2,7,3)) --> 273
I actually have just made a simple hack of the Lua interpreter that
did the above.
I.e. there is nothing verbose about the syntax, people are just too
lazy to type 'function', 'return' and 'end'.
