Partial functions allow us to fix a certain number of arguments of a function and generate a new function.
In the example we have pre-filled our function with some constant values of a, b and c. And g() just takes a single argument i.e. the variable x.
Another Example :
- Partial functions can be used to derive specialized functions from general functions and therefore help us to reuse our code.
- This feature is similar to bind in C++.
