Welcome to issue 262 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits
of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the
week of March 03 to 09, 2013.
Quotes of the Week
* byorgey: The box does not care whether you think it is stupid. It
is box.
* ksf: duh, we can't run out of energy, as there's a fixed amount of
it.
* shachaf: getLine :: IO String contains a String in the same way
that /bin/ls contains a list of files
* macrover: is there a comparison between the various
streams/pipes/conduits libraries?
Cale: macrover: I am presently resisting the temptation to make a
table with the libraries and only one other column which is
"maximum number of type parameters to a type constructor".
* tac: It's actually really easy to remember all the numeric
typeclasses in Haskell. Just think about what makes sense... then
make sure whatever your answer is is not that
Top Reddit Stories
* I can't shake the impression that FRP code is just awful to read.
