Meta-programming โ€‹

The functions described here are used to construct a smart contract. Smart contracts are executed once they are deployed in the Tezos blockchain (although they can be simulated). This is indeed meta-programming: we can write a program that writes a program, i.e., constructs a contract.

Note that in the exampleย +ย 2, the actual addition isn't carried out until the contract has been deployed and the entrypoint is called.
