Examples

a = 2.sqrt; // result is square root of two (approximate floating point).
a = { b }.sqrt; // result is  a UnaryOpFunction
b = 2;
a.value; // now it is evaluated, and the result is calculated
b = 9;
a.value; // again, with a different value.
// sound example
(
var a = { 19.rand };
var b = a.sqrt;
fork {
    15.do {
        (instrument: \default, note: [a.value, b.value]).play;
        0.3.wait;
    }
}
