Can anybody point me to a right way here?
I have those exercises in haskell that i cannot do, because haskell is so
much different from other languages that i use. I have read so much from
different manuals but i do not understand haskell enough yet.
I must find a shorter list.
Here's how i did that, but my teacher said that it is unefficient way to do
getShorter :: [a] -> [a] -> [a]
getShorter xs ys | length xs <= length ys = xs
| otherwise = ys
How do i do it effective, so that i only check as many elements from lists
as many are in the shortest list?
Second exercise also need an effective answer:
I have to remove any occurances of certain number from list and give the
number of how many times that number was removed.
remCount :: Int -> [Int] -> (Int,[Int])
remCount n xs = (length xs - length ys, ys)
where ys = [ x | x <- xs, x /= n]
moneyBack :: Int -> [(Int,Int)]
I must print out all pairs of bank notes and (bank notes, how many) which
salesman would give me back when he/she has to give me like 456 back.
moneyBack 0 ==> 
moneyBack 10 ==> [(10,1)]
moneyBack 123 ==> [(100,1),(10,2),(2,1),(1,1)]
moneyBack 5326 ==> [(500,10),(100,3),(25,1),(1,1)]
If anybody could point me in a right direction that would be great.
Haskell seems very cool because the code is usually really short, but i just
need a start. I need more examples than i can find from google (maybe i'm
not using the right keywords).
