[Haskell-cafe] Lisp like symbols in haskell

Hi Jean-Christophe

There is no mention in the 'History of Haskell' which is probably the
most authoritative published reference


If someone wanted to introduce symbols, they would presumably have to
propose an extension to the type system to handle them - don't symbols
in Lisp and Scheme rely on lists being dynamically typed?

Best wishes
