I am curious as to why Haskell not is homoiconic?
I am interested in the reasons behind that design descision.
I ask using this defintion og homiconicity:
Homiconic means that "the primary representation of programs is also a
data structure in a primitive type of the language itself" --
Examples: LISP, Rebol, Natural Languages...
