One Reply to "Initializing <code>lazy</code> and <code>lateinit</code> variables in Kotlin"

  1. The `pi` example here is a bit misguided, because using `lazy` for that will consume more memory than just initialising the constant value.

    The one case where I would consider making `pi` lazy is if you are writing an arbitrary precision arithmetic library and have to calculate the value, because calculating the value can be very expensive if the caller asks for a large number of digits.
