Lambda Expressions ================== A function written in Lisp is a list that looks like this: (lambda (ARG-VARIABLES...) [DOCUMENTATION-STRING] [INTERACTIVE-DECLARATION] BODY-FORMS...) Such a list is called a "lambda expression". In Emacs Lisp, it actually is valid as an expression--it evaluates to itself. In some other Lisp dialects, a lambda expression is not a valid expression at all. In either case, its main use is not to be evaluated as an expression, but to be called as a function.
