For those who havent seen it Uday Reddy has a comprehensive answer to a
to explain referential transparency on Stack Overflow.
For good measure he finishes with a rather scathing assessment of functional
programmers claim to ownership of RT:
Functional programmers don't know much of this research.
Their ideas on referential transparency are to be taken
with a large grain of salt.
Marvellous! 'Tis rare to find such a robust assessment combined with
understanding (and it certainly makes me think a bit).
Have we become a bit complacent about RT?
