  CBV
  
     (CBV) An evaluation strategy where arguments are evaluated
     before the function or procedure is entered.  Only the values
     of the arguments are passed and changes to the arguments
     within the called procedure have no effect on the actual
     arguments as seen by the caller.  See applicative order
     reduction, call-by-value-result, strict evaluation,
     call-by-name, lazy evaluation.
