Hi,

From a zero parameter function
def a = 1
I can create a partially applied function by using a _, which is of type ()=>Int.

Is it also possible to create a ()=>Int from function has parameters, like
def b(x:Int) = 1 + x

I want to create a ()=>a function from an existing multiple parameters function, but do not want to evaluate its value.

Re: How to make a partially applied ()=>a function from a multip
PS.

I can do it using this weird carried function syntax:
def c(x:Int)() = 1 + x

When using c(1) it gets evaluated and return 2, but when using c(1) _ it returns an function ()=>Int.

scala> def b(x: Int) = x + 1b: (Int)Int
scala> val pab = () => b(42)pab: () => Int = <function>
scala> pab() res9: Int = 43
