                      The Haskell Report
                         Version  1.0
                         1 April 1990

The Haskell Committee, formed in September 1987 to design a "common"
non-strict purely functional language, has (finally) completed its work
and wishes to announce a Report about the language.  Several preliminary
versions of the Report were released to get feedback, and many changes
have been incorporated since the first release in December '88.  The
current release will remain STABLE for at least one year.

You may get the report via anonymous FTP:
from Yale:                      from Glasgow:
  ftp nebula.cs.yale.edu          ftp cs.glasgow.ac.uk
  (or ftp            
  login: anonymous                login: guest
  password: anonymous             password: <your username>
  type binary                     type binary
  cd pub/haskell-report           cd <FP>haskell-report 
  get report-1.0.tar.Z            get report-1.0.tar.Z
  get report-1.0.dvi.Z            get report-1.0.dvi.Z
  get report-1.0.ps.Z             get report-1.0.ps.Z
  quit                            quit

The .tar file contains the source document in Unix tape archive
format; alternatively the .dvi or .ps files may be used for printing
only.  All of the files are in compress format; to uncompress them
type "uncompress <filename>" at the Unix shell.  The report is over
100 pages long and has been formatted for double-sided copying.

Alternatively, you may get a hard copy by:

Two implementations of Haskell will soon be available, one built at the
University of Glasgow, the other at Yale University.  Watch this space
for announcements.

Finally, we hope to fix, improve and clarify the current Haskell design
through graceful evolution and with your help.  To this end, several
mailing lists have been set up:

1) A common mailing list for general discussions about Haskell.
   This list is reachable in one of two ways:
   haskell at cs.yale.edu  or  haskell at cs.glasgow.ac.uk

2) To be added to the above mailing list, or to inquire about
   the implementation status of Haskell, send mail to either:
   haskell-request at cs.yale.edu  or  haskell-request at cs.glasgow.ac.uk
   (whichever is the nearer site to you).

3) The implementation efforts at Glasgow and Yale will have their own
   mailing lists for users of the respective systems.  These will be
   announced at the time the implementations are released.
