Function - Pure Function

Model Funny


Pure functions are called pure because:

  • they do not change their inputs,
  • they always return the same result for the same inputs.

The result is then predictable.

Pure functions take data and transform it, without modifying any shared state, meaning there are no side effects besides returning a value.

They are mostly used in functional programming.


function sum(a, b) {
  return a + b;
Not Pure
function withdraw(account, amount) { -= amount;
