GeneralWhat "advanced" features of programming languages do you use? Pin

I've been digging into a javascript based application lately and tripped across some code that made extensive use of the arity (which is deprecated now), currying capabilities and anonymous functions. Took me a lonnnnnng time to understand what the intent and operation of the code was.

So, out of curiosity, I'm wondering what "advanced" features of people's favorite languages they use on a regular basis, how they use them, and why? Or, which ones do you seldom/never use because....

E.g:
....I like using lambdas in C++ because .... (I can't think of a good example because I avoid them!)
....I avoid lambdas in C++ because they are often used where a simple function would be clearer and more readable (truth in advertising).
