Source examples for currying used in the article

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/practical-currying-javascript-charl-marais

sum.js

A sum functions taking to arguments and returning the sum.

sum-currying.js

A sum function taking one argument and returning function that takes an argument and return the sum of the first with second.

advanced-filter.js

advanced-filter-currying.js

A filter method that filters out objects in an array that do not match all key/values of an input match object. The implementation makes used of currying on array functions.
