in thread Lexical scoping like a fox

local affects dynamic scoping - and is completely orthogonal to lexical scope. Almost the essence of local is that it can affect a variable outside of it's lexical scope
Indeed. Thank you muchly for pointing this out, will update the tutorial accordingly along with the other updates mentioned above.

    A good effort bro. Needs more monkeys and I'd like to see some footnotes that mention obscure Japanese rhythm-action games. ;-)

      A very good, understandable tutorial certainly worth my reading time.

      But I totally reject any reference to Japanese rythym-action games as a pernicious influence. Although it does need more monkeys. Or have we already typed enough?
