Just out of interest, I ran all of these suggested variations of
the word count solution in Haskell head-to-head against each other.
Here are the results, in seconds, on my machine (2.4GHz x86/Linux)
for the suggested input (N=500) from the shootout site. All Haskell
versions were compiled with ghc-5.04.2 -O2.
original space-leaky 2.257
Greg Buchholz 1.619 *
Sam Mason 0.594
Malcolm Wallace 0.457
Georg Martius 0.322 *
Tomasz Zielonka 0.047
linux 'wc' 0.085
Those marked with a * gave the wrong number of words. The really
interesting thing is that Tomasz's solution is twice as fast as the
standard Gnu implementation!
