  1. The PDF version I have from Aug 2010 states: "In one sense, a signature is a collection of parameters. Captures fill the same niche for arguments." This does not provide a definition of a capture; it merely provides an analogy to something else. We need a definition.

  2. In what sense is a capture different from an array reference?

  3. Code sample at start of 4.5.1: Does each capture in this array have to have arguments in the same position?


I also found this part of chapter 4 confusing.

Regarding 1 and 2: we now have a proper explanation; please re-read and tell me if it's less confusing now :-)
