Well, hopefully it will be useful for us recovering Fortran and
C programmers ;-)
Let me issue two follow up challenges, since I could not figure
these out on my own:
1) It would be good to add a terse one-line expression that would show
the use of block closures. What is the shortest meaningful expression
that illustrates this?
2) It would be nice if the pages in the help book could be set to
behave like workspaces, with syntax formatting and workspace
variables. Can anyone think of a way to do it?
