I'm new to the list, been on irc a bit. I'm still learning haskell.
Wanted to say Hi before getting in to things...
I'm interested in real-world programs in haskell, especially ones where
security and formal methods are important. I'm looking at web servers
right now. I found a copy of Simon Marlow's HWS on haskell.org's cvs
server. I know there's a newer plugin version, but I cant find a working
link to the actual code. I've been able to get the code to compile after
a while, but it still has some warnings of deprecated features which I
havent been able to get rid of (if anyone's interested in helping out, let
me know). Anyway, I configured it an ran it and it works, although I have
noticed two security flaws in it which need fixing. Is it possible there
is a newer version with these flaws fixed?
Besides HWS, what other web servers exist? Does anyone actually use a
haskell based web server in practice? Which web server is considered the
most mature? stable? fastest?
I'm trying to decided if I should sink some time into HWS or if I should
use another server.
