re: There's a small issue in the daft punk example. Both fns aren't equivalents. On the first version, you modify the element zero of the array. On t...

Hi Marcelo, this is because the idea is show that you need create a new array in immutable data, and not only change a array element ;)


Yep but, to have the same behaviour on both examples, you should use something like:

function changeFirstElem(array) {
  const modifiedArray = ['Lose yourself to dance', ...array.slice(1)]
  return modifiedArray

// changeFirstElem([1, 2, 3]) will be ['Lose yourself to dance', 2, 3], like your first non-pure fn

Another option is

function what([x, ...xs]) {
  return ['new first elem', ...xs];
