Problem Description:

Passing a fat arrow UDF into a BIF with no curly braces around the body causes a parsing error.

Steps to Reproduce:

myArr = [3,3,3]
writeDump( myArr.reduce( (acc,x) => acc+x, 0 ) )

Actual Result:

Parameter validation error for the reduce function.  The function accepts 1 to 2 parameter(s).
Improper parsing of closure

Expected Result:


Any Workarounds:

Add curly braces to the function body like so:

myArr = [3,3,3]
writeDump( myArr.reduce( (acc,x) => { return acc+x }, 0 ) )



Here's a set of tests that show all known bugs in Lucee and Adobe CF's fat arrow functions along with a reference implementation in JS where everything passes.
