Haskell Weekly News: April 03, 2006

Greetings, and thanks for reading issue 31 of HWN, a weekly newsletter covering developments in the Haskell community. Each Monday, new editions are posted to the Haskell mailing list and to The Haskell Sequence. RSS is also available. Headlines also go to haskell.org.


This section covers activity on Haskell' standardisation process.


Quotes of the Week

Seen on #haskell:

Lemmih:: calling an out-of-scope function isn't as easy as I had hoped

TuringTest:: They got it work in Haskell without understanding Haskell.
It is quite an achievement, of some description.

tennin:: [very #haskell] anyone know of any good books/papers on the
application of category theory to databases?

Smokey`:: I can't believe it, Haskell is starting to draw me away from
C++... I swore i'd never turn from C++
