Demonstrate Ruby Procs / Lambdas vs Methods for Variable Scope
There are some key differences between procs / lambdas and traditional methods in Ruby, however the differences can many times be subtle. In this exercise we’ll examine how variable scope is processed differently between the different options.
Build a program that illustrates the differences in variable scope in Ruby between Procs / Lambdas, and traditional methods.
Build a traditional method and a lambda or Proc and illustrate how the two processes have different access levels for local variables.
Real World Usage
This exercise showcases one of the subtle differences between Procs / lambdas and plain Ruby methods. At a high level it may seem like the three options can be used interchangeably, however in this guide we’ll walk through how they approach variable access much differently.
