Exercise 1

Learning Targets

  • recapitulate Haskell types (keywords type and data, product and sum types)
  • Helium: define equality functions (pattern matching)
  • pretty printing


  • Define data types that represent boards, squares, positions, pieces and game states.
  • Helium: Implement suited eq-functions.
  • Implement a function prettyBoard, that transforms a board into a clearly arranged string representation (human readable :-)). Support this function with auxiliary functions that pretty print pieces, squares, ...
