I have two cases that I'd like to cover. For example you can either assign to a variable:
var x = 3;
Or you can indirectly assign to a variable with a function (passing function arguments):
Is there a word to refer to both of these cases? Basically, these are the ways to "use" a value in programming, via variables or function scoping.
I want to use the word like the following:
This syntax alone is not useful but when you <WORD> it, yadda yadda...
which would be equivalent to:
This syntax alone is not useful but when you assign it to a variable or pass it into a function, yadda yadda...
The closest words I could come up with were either "use" or "store", both of which are a little bit too ambiguous. Thanks in advance!
