[Haskell-cafe] Proposed "Restructuring" of State Monad page in Haskell Wikibooks

Hello – I’m proposing to restructure this<https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Haskell/Understanding_monads/State>, and I have a draft here<https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Davjam2:Example/StateMonad>. I’ve given my main reasons for the restructuring at the top of the draft page.

I’d very much like feedback before updating the real page, especially if people don’t like the new one much.

I’m new here, so should probably say a bit about myself. I’ve been learning-by-doing Haskell for about two years. Sometimes I feel I’m starting to get it, but these feelings don’t usually last long. I’m certainly not an expert, and don’t have a PhD in Very Clever Things. I do have quite an extensive IT background, originally programming in Lisp and Prolog, then (sadly) C++, VB and SQL but have had quite a long break from programming (doing dumb things like architecting systems and project managing) before looking at Haskell. I built this website<https://decimos.net/> and this library<https://hackage.haskell.org/package/MapWith>, just for my own amusement.

Apologies if this isn’t the right place to send this. (But then where is?) I’ve already put a note on the page itself about the new draft, but I’ve no idea whether anyone will notice it.

Thanks very much,
