<span class="e" id="q_114d2bb3cc79bd2a_1">Haskell
is a programming language where software components can be built safely
and predictably from existing components without increasing the
system's overall complexity.</span> Unlike Java or C, Haskell functions are called 'safe' because each function either explicitly states its side effects or is <span class="e" id="q_114d2bb3cc79bd2a_1">guaranteed to have none.
