Question

Why is currying?

Answer

More specifically, given a function f(x, y) , we can define a function g such that g(x)(y) is equivalent to f(x, y) . Here, g is a higher-order function that takes in a single argument x and returns another function that takes in a single argument y. This transformation is currying.

We can use higher-order functions to convert a function that takes multiple arguments into a chain of functions that each take a single argument. More specifically, given a function f(x, y) , we can define a function g such that g(x)(y) is equivalent to f(x, y) . Here, g is a higher-order function that takes in a single argument x and returns another function that takes in a single argument y . This transformation is called currying.
