Welcome to issue 251 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits
of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the
week of November 4 to 17, 2012.
Quotes of the Week
* Ralith: [why some people don't use conduits/pipes] also, I think at
least some people are waiting for edwardk to write his version.
* edwardk: f -| g means that f a -> b is isomorphic to a -> g b (for
arrows in the appropriate categories)
* edwardk: @type (^.)
lambdabot: s -> Getting a s t a b -> a
byorgey: I would not like to be getting a stab, thank you
* edwardk: I mean we're so oop even our member accessors have
diagrams explaining their member accessors.
* shapr: hylo! That's the category theorist greeting.
* shachaf: type AbstractAlgebra a = Abstract a -> a
* nicoo: Yet many Writers concern themselves with issues of State,
imaginary or real
* rwbarton: when you learn C, watch out for the keyword "return", it
doesn't do what you'd expect
* Oleg: We show how to program with the law of excluded middle. We
specifically avoid call/cc, which is overrated.
