Re: Evaluate part of rhs of RuleDelayed


Here is a rather obvious although, perhaps, not a very elegant solution:

SomeComplexFunction[a_] := Module[{x, SCF}, x = a*a;
   {value -> SCF[x + a]} /. {Rule -> RuleDelayed, SCF ->  
SomeComplexFunction}]

In[2]:= SomeComplexFunction[5]
Out[2]= {value :> SomeComplexFunction(30)}
