This is not a function. This just the same as blocks in Algol 68,
because both do not defer execution until the fuction is called.

Of course you can define the semantics of such a block in terms
of a function defintion and an immedirate call to the fuction.
This is done in the Scheme languges let syntax.

HTH,
Gerald
