Hi Bulat and Stefan -
Thanks very much for your help - very much appreciated!
In spite of being a newcomer, I'm very much sold on Haskell's elegance
and clean syntax.
On the subject of whether this is a good way to learn Haskell -
granted, it's probably not ideal.
However, I've already been through the GHC user guide (and also
visited the "PLEAC" site on Sourceforge).
I didn't find quite the code that I was looking for in either place, so
I scanned the archives of this list as well (where I found the
previously-posted code). So that's three places ...
If there were a "Haskell cookbook" (as there is a Python one), I
would have gone straight there. I regularly use the "Python cookbook"
site which is very useful . However, until there's a Haskell equivalent
(which then newcomers could be pointed at) , it's pretty much a case of
"finding what one can" ... :-)
Many thanks again - I'll make this my last post for at least a week or
two (to give others some bandwidth) -
