That's not what I was asking about. Will the anonymous function see the
names visible in the scope of its definition?
unsigned long foo (vector<X> const &xs)
unsigned y = 0;
unsigned long n = std::accumulate(
xs.begin(), xs.end(), 0UL,
unsigned long (unsigned long lhs, X const &rhs) // inline fn
with no name.
return ++y * (lhs + rhs.count);
A slightly brain-dead example, but it illustrates my question. As I
understand it, one can easily include references to local variables in a
lambda expression using ref(). Since current language does not allow us to
define one function body inside another, we can't really take "as it is now"
for a guideline. Nested blocks OTOH do not prevent access to outer local
variables, but you can't call nested blocks recursively...
