[Haskell-cafe] Doubting Haskell

Concerning the Haskell program that does some statistics and displays  
some graphs,
I must say that if that were the task I had to solve I would not use  
either C++ or Haskell,
but R, the open source S lookalike.  The best way to be productive as  
a programmer
is to not write code if you can steal it.  R looks like an imperative  
language, but it is
"value-oriented" in the same way that SETL is, so is by some criteria  
a functional language
of sorts.
