What is the difference between Go's function currying and function overloading for creating and using multi-variant functions in Go programs?
Go does not support function overloading, so there is no comparison between function currying and function overloading in Go.
Function overloading is a feature in some programming languages where multiple functions can have the same name but different parameter types, allowing them to handle different input types. The appropriate function to be called is determined at compile-time based on the parameter types.
On the other hand, function currying and partial application are techniques for creating new functions by pre-filling some of the arguments of an existing function, resulting in a function that takes fewer arguments. This can be useful for creating reusable functions and simplifying code.
In Go, function currying and partial application can be achieved using closures or higher-order functions, while function overloading is not supported.
