strict evaluation
Jump to user comments
Call-by-value evaluation order is sometimes called "strict
evaluation" because, in a sequential system, it makes
functions behave as though they were strict, in the sense
that evaluation of a function application cannot terminate
before evaluation of the argument. Similarly, languages are
called strict if they use call-by-value argument passing.
