Examples of namebindings with let. The first example shows that all constituents of a function call can be bound
to local names - in the example both the function object referred to by a,
and two string parameters. The second example illustrates that alternative names, aliases, can be
defined for a couple of functions.
Notice in particular that g is bound to b (the bold face function), not em (the emphasis function).
This can also be seen in the second column. The third example is a little more advanced, and it can first be understood fully on the
ground of the material in the lecture about higher-order functions.
We bind the name phrase-elements to a list of ten functions. Via mapping,
we apply each function to foo, and we present the results in an ul list.
