What are "delegates"? Talking about C#?
I don't know C#. My use of the term delegates comes from The D programming language and is best described as a pointer to a method.
That is, it is a pointer to a function that carries an implicit reference to an object instance. Ie. Equivalent to this in perl:
Closures are NOT synonymous for: ... nor for currying
Agreed. But currying is one use for closures not easily achieved without them.
With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
