[Haskell-cafe] Is there anyone out there who can translate
C# generics into Haskell?

I loosely do understand....but very loosely....but I'm not, as yet,
convinced it is completely relevant.
The implementation may differ, but that does not mean that there is no
overlap....I am not expecting one model to be a superset of the other,
but I am expecting some sort of overlap between 'interface'
implementation and type class instance declaration.

because they have different models. i recommend you to start from
learning this model, otherwise you will don't understand how Haskell
really works and erroneously apply your OOP knowledge to Haskell data
shortly said, there are 3 ways to polymorphism:
1) C++ templates - type-specific code generated at compile time
2) OOP classes - every object carries VMT which allows to select
3) type classes - dictionary of type-specific operations is given as
additional hidden argument to each function
Haskell uses t.c. and its abilities are dictated by this
implementation. there is no simple and direct mapping between
features provided by OOP and t.c.
