Hi,

A closure in Scala is a function whose value depends on variables declared outside of it. Let’s take an example:

scala> var c=5

c: Int = 5

scala> val mul2=(a:Int,b:Int)=>(a+b)*c

mul2: (Int, Int) => Int = $$Lambda$1533/239864031@6d90e705

scala> mul2(2,3)

The output will be:

Int = 25

scala> c=7

c: Int = 7

scala> mul2(2,3)

The output will be:

Int = 35

Here mul2 reads the new value of ‘c’ when we call it a second time.
