In simple terms, functional programming is an approach to symbolic computation that is done in the same way as solving mathematical problems. Any functional programming is based on mathematical functions and its coding style. Any language that supports functional programming works for solutions for the following two questions:
- What does it need to solve?
- How does it solve it?
Functional programming is not a new invention. This language has existed in the industry for a long time. The following are some well-known programming languages that support functional programming:
