Hi, my name is David Cantrell.  I'm primarily a perl programmer, currently 
working on telecoms billing.  I got interested in functional programming 
when I needed a zip function and being far too lazy to write my own I 
searched on CPAN and found the Language::Functional module.  Then, like a 
fool, I submitted a couple of patches to the author who replied "would you 
like to take over maintenance cos I don't have time".  And so, seeing that 
L::F is inspired by Haskell, I thought I'd better learn the language :-)
