Welcome to issue 255 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits
of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the
weeks of January 06 to 19, 201.
Quotes of the Week
* ky3: Indexed monads are just categories in the category of
endofunctors, what's the problem?
* tac: I guess I'm just living in a fantasy world where the docs tell
you how to use such a basic API :P
* shachaf: 3.0 is an edwardk phase, not just a version number. It's
like Picasso's Blue Period.
* cmccann: Clearly the reason why edwardk uses Haskell now is because
every C++ compiler has a restraining order against him.
* shachaf: I'm not sure what your question is, but maybe lens is the
answer.
* cmccann: * cmccann has concluded that lenses are just a category
whose objects are english prepositions and whose morphisms are all
unsafeCoerce
* shachaf: Some people, when asking about a problem in #haskell, get
a link to okmij.org. Now they have two problems.
* quicksilver: It returns undefined for convenience. I'm not really
sure it's that convenient, but that's why.
* edwardk: cmccann: let me get this straight you are saying that
someone [mm_freak] who by their very nick admits to being a freak
did something freakish?
