[Haskell-cafe] Can Haskell outperform C++?

In a lecture today I presented (for quite other reasons) a simple combinatorial enumeration problem where the difference between two algorithms was far larger than any plausible difference between programming languages.  If a programming language makes it easier to explore high level alternative algorithms, you may very easily end up with faster programs in a "slower" language.  (Sorry about the very long line: broken return key.)
