CoffeeScript compiled this code:

`mod = (num) -> num % 2`

into:

```
// Generated by CoffeeScript 1.7.1
(function() {
var mod;
mod = function(num) {
return num % 2;
};
}).call(this);
```

How can I call this JavaScript immediate function?

For example, I'd like to call `mod.apply(5)`

.

You can do this:

```
mod = ((num) -> num % 2) 5
```

That's *not* the same as `mod.apply(5)`

, which would not call the "mod" function such that "num" is `5`

. Instead it'd call the function such that `this`

was `5`

, which I doubt is what you really wanted to do.

The result of my code above would be to set "mod" to `1`

, which is `5 % 2`

.

Now, if you just want to call "mod" *later*, you would use your original code and then just do it:

```
mod5 = mod 5
```
