Function application, also sometimes referred to as function composition or composing functions is a big thing in functional programming. One style of composition is called Curry. Curry is feature of lots functional language. When you have a function with two parameter, you can pass one argument to the function, that create an new partial function, which accept one parameter. This partial function is also called curried function. F# support this in a very elegant syntax.
let print x y = printfn "%i" x printfn "%s" y let print100y = print 100 //create a curried function print100y "hello" //call the curried function
If you want to fill in the second argument to create a new function, this is also support, like below.
let printx_hello x = dosomething x "hello" printx_hello 100
