[Haskell-cafe] Haskell and SCADA

SCADA (or PLC code at least) is often generated from graphical ladder
diagrams. It would be easy to believe a Haskell embedded DSL would be
more flexible than a visual programming language, but the people
writing PLC code are already comfortable with their tools. Haskell
would be a big change [*].

[*] I currently work in the water industry in the UK - the people
configuring SCADA and writing PLC code are hardware engineers not
programmers. Programming is just something they need to do to get the
system working, they aren't sitting around dreaming after better
programming tools.
