Hello JC, I think you've set yourself a challenge there :) Welcome to
Haskell programming. Taking a Shootout entry and playing with it is
a great way to learn Haskell. The Shootout provides an example in your
favourite previous language for comparison and a small well defined
program with exact test results you can pit your wits against. Fame
awaits you for a fast and beautiful entry. I'm still learning useful
things from the Fasta benchmark. It's surprising how many interesting
things you can discover in a small piece of code.
