In this chapter we are going to see what the term currying means. Once we understand what this means and where it can be used, we will move onto another concept in functional programming called partial application. Both currying and partial application are important to understand as we use them during functional composition. As in the previous chapters, we are going to look at a sample problem and explain how functional programming techniques like currying and partial application can be applied.
