So far so good!
> sum.map (^2).filter even [1..4]
returns an error.
How is it that the composition above as part of a function equation
doesn't return any errors while on its own it requires parentheses? I
can understand the need for the parentheses - the composition
operator takes two arguments/operand,s each of which is a mapping
which must correspond to specific domain and range requirements i.e.
(b->c -> (a->b) -> (a->c)
Why aren't the parentheses required in the function definition?
