Identifiers within functions are scoped to the end of the expression in which they appear. Ordinarily, this means they are scoped until the end of the function definition in which they appear. So, if an identifier is defined inside a function, it cannot be used outside it. Consider the next example: let printMessage() = let message = "Help me" printfn "%s" message printfn "%s" message This attempts to use the identifier message outside the function printMessage, which is out of scope. fs(34,17): error: FS0039: The value or constructor 'message' is not defined.

So, in the example, passing just the value 4 to the add function results in a new function, which I named addFour, because it takes one parameter and adds the value 4 to it. At first glance, this idea can look uninteresting and unhelpful, but it is a powerful part of functional programming that you’ll see used throughout the book. This behavior may not always be appropriate. For example, if the function takes two floating-point parameters that represent a point, it may not be desirable to have these numbers passed to the function separately, because they both make up the point they represent.

Object), as shown in the next example, which prints either "heads" or false to the console. Second % 2 = 0 then box "heads" else box false printfn "%A" result Imperative programmers may be surprised that an if … then … else … expression must have an else if the expression returns a value. This is pretty logical when you think about it and considering the examples you’ve just seen. If the else were removed from the code, the identifier result could not be assigned a value when the if evaluated to false, and having uninitialized identifiers is something that F# (and functional programming in general) aims to avoid.
