Welcome to issue 264 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits
of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the
week of March 17 to 30, 2013.
Quotes of the Week
* ddarius: (f x) is a partial application iff
f x == (curry (uncurry f) x)
* flebron: "Hey, I am Haskell; and this is lazy; so here's a
function; I'll call it, maybe."
* WinstonChurchill: It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read
books of quotations.
* ab9rf: (on duck typing) if you want a
duck-submarine-employee-tomato, you can do that
* johnw: Stealing lens from the gods, and then having my liver eaten
out daily.
* dibblego: scala puts road blocks in your way proportional to how
effective you want to be
* hiptobecubic: I want my programs to either be correct or violently
explode
* shachaf: edwardk will try to get you addicted to monoids. The first
one is always free.
* merijn: So apparently there's a footballer named lens, who played
some important part in the match against the Netherlands... Which
would explain the fact that twitter is telling me "lens" is
trending, I was starting to think haskell had won the PL revolution
with edwardk as our glorious leader ;)
* elliott: all I want for christmas is a boring lambdabot.
