I have started to love haskell and like these friends I am starting to
be annoying about "Why not haskell?" and realy realy why not haskell?
In commercial world there are buzz-oriented languages that do the
"barking to the picture" in their "communities" - which are in fact
groups of free marketers for "the companies". Let all those guys
continue to bulk their noisy space!
But again "why not haskell?".
I think - this is my opinion according to my experiences and abilities
and I know they are not the best ones; I only try to participate in
this discussion which is important to me - the main reasons are two:
1 - monads : there must be something to make a clear tool for a
none-mathematician programmer. (I still have understanding problems
with them).
2 - there must be an easy way to include existing libraries. There are
many stable libraries in CPAN for perl, implemented in C for example.
And why not to have a system for writing C in haskell? Or an easy
interface for using these codes without reimplementing haskell
identities in C?
Thanks all
