Is my example correct?
I have an idea for an example. Does it do what I think it must do i. e. does it input character and print '!' if it is odd before inputting?
0, 1, ==, =, var, , read, write, eof, read()((), 1)(()(write(1), write(0), write(0), write(0), write(0), write(1))())
- Nice example! You are very close, it prints "!" if the first input character is even (the least significant bit is 0). The
()is an instance of FunctionTemplate, which is the only function that interprets its arguments as a function body and doesn't evaluate them immediately. That's basically what you have in your example: if the first bit is 1 (odd) then construct a new function (which never gets called, and thus doesn't print anything). If the bit is 0 (even) then evaluate the argument (which is an immediately-invoked function expression that prints "!"). Feel free to edit the main page and add this example if you want. --Hakerh400 (talk) 16:50, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
