Welcome to issue 223 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits
of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the
week of April 8 to 14, 2012.
Quotes of the Week
* merijn: I'm tempted to just do unsafePerformIO newEmptyMVar at the
top level
quicksilver: I can't really be expected to deal with your
sinfulness. That's between you and your god.
* acowley: Good haskell code is 20 LANGUAGE pragmas, 40 imports, then
one line of perl.
* deggis: oh. running GHC HEAD. must try that next week if coffee
just someday isn't enough
* dmwit: hGetContents does not close its handle.
dmwit: hGetContents semicloses its handle.
* monochrom: isTrue = (unsafeCoerce :: Either a b -> Bool)
. (unsafeCoerce :: Maybe c -> Either a b)
. (unsafeCoerce :: Bool -> Maybe c)
* dmwit: For basically all good properties P, IEEE 754 is not P.
* Cale: Little known fact: For any positive integer n, the infinite
sequence of Project Euler problems has only finitely many elements
whose solution is not divisible by n.
