Can a function code contain another complete function?
In principle, Yes, this is possible. Those with a programming background may be used to techniques like nesting one function inside another. However, there is no difference in use by doing so and it is currently not recommended. Why:
- Tinderbox may harden scoping rules in the future, which would break existing code.
- It is confusing, and likely to give a headache when trying, a month from now, to figure out what the code is doing.
Variables in the outer function are (likely) accessible to the nested function but again, this is currently not recommended.
