Is it possible to define functions inside other functions in Scala?
Scala allows you to define functions inside a function and functions defined inside other functions are called local functions. Example of factorial with local function:
def factorial(i: Int): Int = {
  def fact(i: Int, accumulator: Int): Int = {
    if (i <= 1)
      fact(i - 1, i * accumulator)
  fact(i, 1)
Like a local variable declaration in many languages, a nested method is only visible inside the enclosing method. If you try to call fact() outside of factorial(), you will get a compiler error.
