Why do we use a plus sign in front of function name in JavaScript?

JavascriptWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The +function() {} notation is primarily used to force the parser to treat whatever follows the + as an expression. This is used for functions that are invoked immediately, for example,

+function() { alert("Demo!"); }();

However, + before a function is one of the symbols. You can add other options also like !, -, ~, also. Parentheses can also be used as shown below −

(function() { alert("Demo!"); })();

You can also use it like this −

(function() { alert("Demo!"); }());
