[Haskell-cafe] Learning C after Haskell

Ok, so I'm doing things somewhat backward. I've been using Haskell for a
while now, whenever I get a chance to. But in order to become more involved
in high-performance computing projects at my work, I need to learn C.

I've heard a lot of people say that experience in Haskell can improve one's
abilities in other languages, but I also wonder how different the C "way of
doing things" is different from Haskell's.

My question is, as I learn C, are there any particular Haskell concepts I
should keep in the back of my mind, or is it better to approach C from

Thanks in advance!
