javascript variable scope

The scope of a variable is the current function or, for variables declared outside a function, the current application.
Aassigning a value to an undeclared variable implicitly declares it as a global variable.

Each function is associated with its closure chain
A variable is undefined if cannot be found in the current closure chain,
and the access attemp will generate error.

The global function 'eval' uses current closure chain to evaluate the string.
If a function is still accessible, its function closure chain is still in memory.
