G'day
It'd be good of CF could have anonymous function blocks as per Javascript, eg:

(
    function(message){
        var uppered = message.toUpperCase();
        document.write("Inside: "+ uppered + "<br />");
    }
)("Hello World");

See blog article for more discussion: http://adamcameroncoldfusion.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/callbacks-function-expressions.html

Cheers.

I cannot believe this is being deffered. WIthout further explanation. This is an essential tool to have with closure support.

Will this be considered for CF12 or CF11 patch. I would hope that it could be available to CF11 as well as a patch.

@Adobe, do you see the two questions from your clients there? Do you not think it's a bit rubbish to simply ignore them? FWIW, I have the same question... what's the story here? Whe're you gonna make time?

Was just trying to build an IIFE and found AC's blog and eventually this ticket. Would love this feature.
