Learning Haskell and FP
Thu, 28 Dec 2000 09:36:37 -0800
Who are the audience for the books on Advanced Functional Programming?
Academics with a theoretical CS background or someone with just a bit of
understanding of FP? Ideally, I would like a course suited for someone who
has completed a basic FP course.
