[Haskell-cafe] haskell -> fpga

General Haskell constructs map really poorly to FPGAs.
You could define a subset that maps nicely, though.  But as far as I  
know noone has made such a compiler.  It's a rather big undertaking.

You could look at Cryptol and Bluespec, they are languages with  
similarities to Haskell better suited for hardware.
