This code, from 2007, is deprecated. I'm keeping it available for historical interest.
CoffeeScript (aso by Jeremy Ashkenas) and ECMAScript 6 also include arrow functions and functional programming functions such as
map. If you use these languages, or many other modern languages that compile into ECMAScript, you can do functional prorammming entirely within the language.

Functional defines higher-order methods and functions for functional

that allow strings such as
x -> x+1 to be used in some
contexts as functions.
