Working with Expressions

I've used the term expressions a few times in this chapter. What is an expression? The official ColdFusion documentation explains that expressions are “language constructs that allow you to create sophisticated applications.” A better way to understand it is that expressions are strings of text made up of one or more of the following:

  • Variables

  • Operators (+ for addition, & for concatenation, and so on)

  • Functions
