JavaScript Closures

A closure gives you access to an outer function’s scope from an inner function.
In JavaScript, closures are created every time a function is created, at function creation time.

function init() {
var name = "Mozilla"; // name is a local variable created by init
function displayName() {
// displayName() is the inner function, a closure
alert(name); // use variable declared in the parent function
