So back in January we had lots of fun tuning up Haskell code for the
Great Language Shootout. We did quite well at the time, at one point
ranking overall first. After doing all we could with ghc 6.4.2, the
Haskell entries have been left for the last 10 months, while we worked
on new libraries (bytestring, regex-*).
Now the time has come to reload the shootout for another round!
GHC 6.6 is on the 'sandbox' debian machine, and will soon be on the
other shootout boxes, which means we can use:
* regex-* libraries
And thus greatly improve:
While we're here we should fix:
And anything else you want to take a look at.
A community page has been set up to which you can submit improved entries:
So, install GHC 6.6, read up on Data.ByteString and the new regex libs,
and submit faster code to the wiki! Our shootout-interface officer,
musasabi, can then commit them to shootout cvs, once consensus is
reached on the best code to submit.
Let's take back first place! :)
