Anonymous Functions

Anonymous, as the name suggests, allows creating a function without any names identifier. It can be used as an argument to other functions. This is how JavaScript anonymous functions can be used −

var myfunc = function() {
}

Another example can be the following −

setTimeout(function() {
}, 3000);

Inline Functions

An inline function is a javascript function, which is assigned to a variable created at runtime. You can difference Inline Functions easily with Anonymous since an inline function is assigned to a variable and can be easily reused.
This is how JavaScript inline functions can be used −

var myfunc = function() {
\$('a').click(myfunc);
