What’s the meaning of “=>” (an arrow formed from equals greater than) in JavaScript?

“=>” This is called arrow function in JavaScript. This arrow function is a kind of substitute for the function keyword.

Consider, writing a function for addition of two numbers

var ADD=function(a,b){
     return a+b;
 // The same can be written with arrow function .
var ADDArrowFunc =(a,b)=>{
