I came upon this when playing with foldr and filter. Compare the two
testr n = foldr (\x y -> x && y) True [t | (_, t) <- zip [1 .. n] [True,
testr' n = foldr (\x y -> y && x) True [t | (_, t) <- zip [1 .. n] [True,
I tried these functions on ghci (The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation
System, version 7.0.3), and get the following results (with :set +s):
testr 1000000 => True
(0.01 secs, 7920832 bytes)
testr' 1000000 => True
(8.72 secs, 446585344 bytes)
This bizarre (at least to me) behavior also applies to ||. Should I mind the
orderings of the parameters (especially the accumulator) in the function
passed to foldr?
Thak you for reading.
