Topic

Procs & Lambdas: Y U So Weird?

Some languages provide first-class function features -- that is, a way of taking some bit of functionality in your program and treating it like a data value. Ruby gives you a few different ways. You can get a long way with blocks alone, but when it comes to Procs and their close cousins lambdas, there are some confusing and seemingly arbitrary differences in how they work. In this discussion, we will attempt to make sense of these and differences and why they might exist.
