Closures in Python

Table of Contents

The closure is the function object which extends the scope of a function so that it can be invoked outside its scope. A closure is unlike a plain function that allows the function to access those captured/free variables through the closure’s copies of their values, even when the function is invoked outside their scope. All these will be more clear to you through examples. Before diving into the example. It’s good if you are known to “What is the first-class function?” and the properties of it which will be helpful in understanding the closure concept more easily. If you are not known to go to this link -: In the last few blogs, we are following the example of a company and office hours. So, continuing with these examples will try to understand the concept of closures with some changes in function.

Closures explanation through nested function

Comments inside the code will give you a better understanding of the concepts of closures.

Here is the concept of closure comes

This example gave you a better understanding of the closures. With the help of closures, one can easily extend the scope of the inner function which is using variables set inside the outer function.
