Example text

Notice that the context given to callback itself is never used, and __func is never exposed to the outside world, ensuring that it’s always called in the context in which callback was defined. In practice, CoffeeScript uses a helper function named __bind, but the underlying technique is the same. => may be CoffeeScript’s most powerful shorthand. You might wonder why you shouldn’t just always use => instead of ->. There are two reasons. First, the binding code leads to some small overhead in both file size and execution time and is usually unnecessary.

Some frown on it because the JavaScript specification defines something called execution context, which is related but different. name) is a property of the context. name. The function itself hasn’t changed. We could call the following: setName 'Mr. Mistoffelees' And it would have no effect on cat. We can invoke a function in a particular context without attaching the function to that object by using the call or apply methods, which all functions have. name # 'Babe' call works the same way, except that it takes individual arguments rather than a single array.

But more importantly, while the chameleon-like nature of context is often confusing, it can also allow for very elegant code. For instance, many libraries pass critical information to callback functions through context.
