Haskell Weekly News
Issue 63 - July 23, 2007

   Welcome to issue 63 of HWN, a weekly newsletter covering developments
   in the [1]Haskell community.

   This week, the HWN rises zombie-like from its repository, as your
   friendly HWN editor tries to get his PhD finished. This bumper issue
   is filled out with 100 new Haskell blog articles and dozens of new

   1. http://haskell.org/


   Learn Haskell in 10 minutes. Chris Smith [2]prepared a new tutorial on
   the basics of Haskell

   2. http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Learn_Haskell_in_10_minutes

   Haskell Program Coverage 0.4. Andy Gill [3]announced release 0.4 of
   Hpc, a tool for Haskell developers. Hpc is a tool-kit to record and
   display Haskell Program Coverage. Hpc includes tools that instrument
   Haskell programs to record program coverage, run instrumented
   programs, and display the coverage information obtained.

   3. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/15381

   Uniplate 1.0. Neil Mitchell [4]announced Uniplate (formerly known as
   Play), a library for boilerplate removal requiring only Haskell 98
   (for normal use) and optionally multi-parameter type classes (for more
   advanced features).

   4. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/15366

   Atom: Hardware description in Haskell. Tom Hawkins [5]announced Atom,
   a high-level hardware description language embedded in Haskell that
   compiles conditional term rewriting systems into conventional HDL.

   5. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/15341

   Catch. Neil Mitchell [6]announced a pattern-match checker for Haskell,
   named Catch. Do you sometimes encounter the dreaded 'pattern match
   failure: head' message? Do you have incomplete patterns which
   sometimes fail? Do you have incomplete patterns which you know don't
   fail, but still get compiler warnings about them? Would you like to
   statically ensure the absence of all calls to error? This is what
   Catch helps ... catch!

   6. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/15334

   Haskell Communities and Activities Report. Andres Loeh [7]announced
   that the Haskell Communities and Activities Report is now available,
   covering the increasingly diverse groups, projects and individuals
   working on, with, or inspired by Haskell.

   7. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/15302

   The Reduceron. Matthew Naylor [8]announced the Reduceron, a processor
   for executing Haskell programs on FPGA with the aim of exploring how
   custom architectural features can improve the speed in which Haskell
   functions are evaluated. Being described entirely in Haskell (using
   Lava), the Reduceron also serves as an interesting application of
   functional languages to the design of complex control circuits such as

   Data.Derive. Neil Mitchell [9]announced Data.Derive, a library and a
   tool for deriving instances for Haskell programs. It is designed to
   work with custom derivations, SYB and Template Haskell mechanisms. The
   tool requires GHC, but the generated code is portable to all
   compilers. We see this tool as a competitor to DrIFT.

   9. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/15292

   Piffle, a packet filter language. Jaap Weel [10]announced Piffle, a
   compiler for a packet filter language in Haskell: a good example of
   how Haskell can be used in an application domain (low level computer
   networking) where people tend to use C for everything, including
   writing compilers.

  10. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/15290

   Towards a Programming Language Nirvana. Simon Peyton-Jones [11]appears
   on video, talking about the Haskell path to programming language

  11. http://channel9.msdn.com/showpost.aspx?postid=326762

   Yi 0.2. Jean-Philippe Bernardy [12]announced the 0.2.0 release of the
   Yi editor. Yi is a text editor written and extensible in Haskell. The
   goal of Yi is to provide a flexible, powerful and correct editor core
   dynamically scriptable in Haskell. Yi si also a Haskell interpreter,
   very much like emacs is a Lisp interpreter, this makes really easy to
   dynamically hack, experiment and modify Yi. All tools and goodies
   written in haskell are also readily available from the editor. This is
   implemented by binding to the GHC API.

  12. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/15260

   Foreign.AppleScript. Wouter Swierstra [13]announced a library for
   compiling and executing AppleScript from Haskell. AppleScript is a
   scripting language available on all modern Apple computers. It can be
   used to script most applications on running on MacOS X.

  13. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/15246

   Asterisk Gateway Interface. Jeremy Shaw [14]uploaded a simple AGI
   interface to [15]hackage. For more about Asterix, see [16]here.

   Harpy. Dirk Kleeblatt [17]announced Harpy, a library for run-time code
   generation of x86 machine code. It provides not only a low level
   interface to code generation operations, but also a convenient domain
   specific language for machine code fragments, a collection of code
   generation combinators and a disassembler. [18]Lennart Augustsson has
   written a series of articles demonstrating its use for fast EDSLs.

   Yaml Reference. Gaal Yahas [19]announced a Haskell (Cabal) package
   containing the YAML spec productions wrapped in Haskell magic to
   convert them to an executable parser. The parser is streaming. It
   isn't intended to serve as a basis for a YAML tool chain; instead it
   is meant to serve as a reference implementation of the spec.

Quotes of the Week

     * Smith's Law: Any sufficiently large test suite for a program
       written in a dynamic language will contain an ad-hoc,
       informally-specified, bug-ridden, slow, patchy implementation of
       half of the Haskell type system

     * pshaw: I think the key hook that allowed me to pass interview #2
       was that I put the word 'Haskell' on my resume.

     * monochrom: Fear leads to uncertainty. Uncertainty leads to doubt.
       Doubt leads to theorem proving.

     * Adam Turoff: Let me start by being perfectly clear: if you are a
       professional programmer, then Haskell is in your future.

     * Apfelmus: In the end, I think that strong types is only one thing
       that makes Haskell programs work after compilation. The other ones
       are higher-order functions and *purity*. No type system can
       achieve what purity offers.
