Haskell Notes

I’ve been writing Haskell for a week now. Haskell is very refined. I’m already disgusted with Ruby.

Unfortunately, Haskell is so cutting edge that current versions are hard masked in Gentoo. It also doesn’t help that compiling Haskell takes approximately forever.

I have this queer belief that Haskell is the scripting language of the future. I’m not exactly sure how monads work; but it looks as if they serve to create a limited scope for DSLs, among their other powers. Wouldn’t it be great to leverage that for the shell?

    People have been trying to replace the shell for ever. It is a sin.
