Take the Tram 10 direct to the stop "ETH/Universitätsspital" <br />
<br />
'''Getting to the Zurich Youth Hostel from the Airport'''<br />
<br />
Take any train that stops at Zurich Bahnhof Hardbrücke, transfer to the 33 Trolley bus going direction Morgental. Take 33 to Jugendherberge and you will see the Hostel.<br />
<br />
'''Getting from the Youth Hostel to the FP Afternoon Talks'''<br />
<br />
Walk to Morgental and take the number 7 Tram direction Bahnhof Stettbach. Change to the Number 10 or Number 6 Tram at the stop "Central" (direction Flughafen/Oerklion and Zoo) and get off at "ETH/Universitätsspital" <br />
<br />
'''A note on day tickets:'''<br />
<br />
Day tickets in Zurich run for 24 hours and can be used on all forms of transport, bus, train, tram.<br />
<br />
=== Accommodation ===<br />
<br />
We have spoken with the local Youth Hostel in Zurich and they will be able to group Haskellers together if you mention the code "ZuriHac2013" when booking and when you check in.<br />
<br />
The website to book is here http://www.youthhostel.ch/en/hostels/zurich <br />
<br />
'''Please be advised we do not have a hold on rooms so you should book sooner rather than later if you will attend! Erudify and the Youth Hostel can't guarantee space'''<br />
<br />
The Hostel has good public transport links to the Hackathon and downtown Zurich.<br />
<br />
Transport between the Hostel and Hackathon is very easy with the Trolley Bus 33.<br />
<br />
Other options we recommend are [http://www.wimdu.com/zurich Wimdu] or [https://www.airbnb.com/s/Zurich--Switzerland?checkin=08%2F29%2F2013&checkout=09%2F01%2F2013 Airbnb].<br />

Each of these data sources has different characteristics and requires different access patterns to make best use of its resources. Typical front-end code will need to access many of these resources concurrently, but the programmer doesn't want to be concerned with the details of how best to access each resource. Moreover, we want to be able to write our code in a modular way and yet have concurrent accesses to the back-end services automatically batched and overlapped for us.<br />
<br />
This talk describes a system that we're building using Haskell that allows the<br />
front-end programmer writing business logic to access all the back-end<br />
services in a concise and consistent way, while the system handles batching<br />
and overlapping of requests to multiple data sources behind the scenes. The<br />
programming model is one of implicit concurrency: there's no fork or async<br />
operation, all external data access is implicitly performed in parallel where<br />
possible.<br />

This is usually solved by using the GNU/Linux distribution's package manager. That fails if the different engineers use different distributions or different versions. Ceh, building on Nix provides the same version controlled, reproducible power-user environment on top of any modern GNU/Linux, be it 64-bit or 32-bit. What makes it interesting for Haskellers is the fact that Nix applies the concept of purity and laziness on the filesystem level and package management level, and Ceh also has excellent GHC support with ~80 cabal packages included. ||[http://www.gergely.risko.hu/fpafternoon-zurich-20130829/ceh.html#(1) Slides]<br />

|| The Glasgow Haskell Compiler is a very good static compiler, but the code it produces is often large and it can be difficult to predict performance.<br />
Furthermore, profiling a program often requires recompiling the program and<br />
all libraries it uses. This talk describes Lambdachine, a virtual machine and<br />
trace-based just-in-time (JIT) compiler for Haskell, which attempts to address<br />
these problems. Lambdachine reuses GHC for type checking and (optional)<br />
static optimisations, and complements it with additional optimisations<br />
performed at runtime based on the program's behaviour. This talk describes<br />
some of the challenges of the design and implementation of Lambdachine.<br />

<br />
In this talk I will explain how GHCJS hooks into the GHC pipeline to translate<br />
Haskell to JavaScript and discuss the challenges of compiling to a high level<br />
language. We will see how we can interact with JavaScript code from the<br />
Haskell world, in particular how GHCJS lets us avoid callback hell for HTTP<br />

===== Introduction =====<br />
<br />
Please come before '''11:00'''. At 11:00 there will be projects introduction and discussion.<br />
<br />
===== BBQ =====<br />
<br />
Since the weather is lovely we'll go BBQing at Lake Zurich this afternoon! <br />
<br />
* The plan is to leave at 18:00.<br />
<br />
* We'll close the office at 18:00 so make sure you've got your stuff with you.<br />
<br />
* To make it easier we'll go in two groups:<br />
** Group A will be lead by Simon Meier.<br />
** Group B will be lead by Bas van Dijk.<br />
** We'll assemble the groups at around 17:45.<br />
<br />
* Everybody should bring their own food & drinks so we'll go shopping at: [https://maps.google.ch/maps?saddr=Gr%C3%BCngasse+19,+Z%C3%BCrich&daddr=Genossenschaft+Migros+Z%C3%BCrich,+Wengistrasse+7,+8004+Zurich&hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=47.374273,8.524227&spn=0.002594,0.005681&sll=47.375134,8.523663&sspn=0.002594,0.005681&geocode=FUrc0gIdfRSCACnT_ovwGwqQRzGzmw-qajTgrg%3BFYfi0gIdLQ6CACnf-nNzGQqQRzFyoNByzNxPpg&oq=grun&gl=CH&dirflg=w&mra=ls&t=m&z=18 Migros at Wengistrasse 7] which is a 5 min. walk from ZuriHac.<br />
<br />
* Then we take the S8 train: [https://maps.google.ch/maps?saddr=Z%C3%BCrich,+Wiedikon+%4047.371469,8.523461&daddr=Wollishofen,+Zurich&hl=en&ie=UTF8&sll=47.359467,8.528566&sspn=0.041513,0.090895&geocode=Fc3U0gIdxQ6CAA%3BFVh40gIdEzaCACmRK9RF2AmQRzGqP7t2jjW0fQ&oq=wollis&gl=CH&dirflg=r&ttype=dep&date=08%2F30%2F13&time=18:40&noexp=0&noal=0&sort=def&mra=ls&t=m&z=14&start=0 from Wiedikon to Wollishofen] at 18:47.<br />
<br />
* Make sure to [http://www.zvv.ch/en/tickets/automatic-ticket-machine/index.html buy a ticket] because Swiss train conductors know no mercy. I suggest you buy a "Tageskarte" (which is a ticket for 24 hours) for zone 10.<br />
<br />
* The BBQ location is: [https://maps.google.ch/?ll=47.345842,8.536197&spn=0.001835,0.00284&t=h&z=19 in the park at the Bachstrasse near Lake Zurich].<br />
<br />
* If you like you can take a dive in the lake. The water is around 22°C. So make sure to pack a swimsuit and towel.<br />
<br />
==== Saturday ====<br />
<br />
Dinner: Pizza!<br />
<br />
* We'll order pizzas at the standard Erudify pizza place: Molino at Stauffacher.<br />
<br />
* Please [http://molino.ch/en/restaurants/zurich-stauffacher/food-beverages.html choose your order] (I can recommend Pizza Miss Italia)<br />
<br />
* Bas will come by and take your order and your money ;-)<br />

<br />
'''Getting to the FP Afternoon Talks on the 29th from the Airport'''<br />
<br />
Follow signs to the Tram 10 from the Airport arrivals.<br />
Take the Tram 10 direct to the stop "ETH/Universitätsspital" <br />
<br />
'''Getting to the Zurich Youth Hostel from the Airport'''<br />
<br />
Take any train that stops at Zurich Bahnhof Hardbrücke, transfer to the 33 Trolley bus going direction Morgental. Take 33 to Jugendherberge and you will see the Hostel.<br />
<br />
'''Getting from the Youth Hostel to the FP Afternoon Talks'''<br />
<br />
Walk to Morgental and take the number 7 Tram direction Bahnhof Stettbach. Change to the Number 10 or Number 6 Tram at the stop "Central" (direction Flughafen/Oerklion and Zoo) and get off at "ETH/Universitätsspital" <br />
<br />
'''A note on day tickets:'''<br />
<br />
Day tickets in Zurich run for 24 hours and can be used on all forms of transport, bus, train, tram.<br />
<br />
=== Accommodation ===<br />
<br />
We have spoken with the local Youth Hostel in Zurich and they will be able to group Haskellers together if you mention the code "ZuriHac2013" when booking and when you check in.<br />
<br />
The website to book is here http://www.youthhostel.ch/en/hostels/zurich <br />
<br />
'''Please be advised we do not have a hold on rooms so you should book sooner rather than later if you will attend! Erudify and the Youth Hostel can't guarantee space'''<br />
<br />
The Hostel has good public transport links to the Hackathon and downtown Zurich.<br />
<br />
Transport between the Hostel and Hackathon is very easy with the Trolley Bus 33.<br />
<br />
Other options we recommend are [http://www.wimdu.com/zurich Wimdu] or [https://www.airbnb.com/s/Zurich--Switzerland?checkin=08%2F29%2F2013&checkout=09%2F01%2F2013 Airbnb].<br />

Each of these data sources has different characteristics and requires different access patterns to make best use of its resources. Typical front-end code will need to access many of these resources concurrently, but the programmer doesn't want to be concerned with the details of how best to access each resource. Moreover, we want to be able to write our code in a modular way and yet have concurrent accesses to the back-end services automatically batched and overlapped for us.<br />
<br />
This talk describes a system that we're building using Haskell that allows the<br />
front-end programmer writing business logic to access all the back-end<br />
services in a concise and consistent way, while the system handles batching<br />
and overlapping of requests to multiple data sources behind the scenes. The<br />
programming model is one of implicit concurrency: there's no fork or async<br />
operation, all external data access is implicitly performed in parallel where<br />
possible.<br />

This is usually solved by using the GNU/Linux distribution's package manager. That fails if the different engineers use different distributions or different versions. Ceh, building on Nix provides the same version controlled, reproducible power-user environment on top of any modern GNU/Linux, be it 64-bit or 32-bit. What makes it interesting for Haskellers is the fact that Nix applies the concept of purity and laziness on the filesystem level and package management level, and Ceh also has excellent GHC support with ~80 cabal packages included. ||[http://www.gergely.risko.hu/fpafternoon-zurich-20130829/ceh.html#(1) Slides]<br />

==== Friday ====<br />
<br />
Hacking hours: 10:00 to 18:00.<br />
<br />
===== Introduction =====<br />
<br />
Please come before '''11:00'''. At 11:00 there will be projects introduction and discussion.<br />
<br />
===== BBQ =====<br />
<br />
Since the weather is lovely we'll go BBQing at Lake Zurich this afternoon! <br />
<br />
* The plan is to leave at 18:00.<br />
<br />
* We'll close the office at 18:00 so make sure you've got your stuff with you.<br />
<br />
* To make it easier we'll go in two groups:<br />
** Group A will be lead by Simon Meier.<br />
** Group B will be lead by Bas van Dijk.<br />
** We'll assemble the groups at around 17:45.<br />
<br />
* Everybody should bring their own food & drinks so we'll go shopping at: [https://maps.google.ch/maps?saddr=Gr%C3%BCngasse+19,+Z%C3%BCrich&daddr=Genossenschaft+Migros+Z%C3%BCrich,+Wengistrasse+7,+8004+Zurich&hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=47.374273,8.524227&spn=0.002594,0.005681&sll=47.375134,8.523663&sspn=0.002594,0.005681&geocode=FUrc0gIdfRSCACnT_ovwGwqQRzGzmw-qajTgrg%3BFYfi0gIdLQ6CACnf-nNzGQqQRzFyoNByzNxPpg&oq=grun&gl=CH&dirflg=w&mra=ls&t=m&z=18 Migros at Wengistrasse 7] which is a 5 min. walk from ZuriHac.<br />
<br />
* Then we take the S8 train: [https://maps.google.ch/maps?saddr=Z%C3%BCrich,+Wiedikon+%4047.371469,8.523461&daddr=Wollishofen,+Zurich&hl=en&ie=UTF8&sll=47.359467,8.528566&sspn=0.041513,0.090895&geocode=Fc3U0gIdxQ6CAA%3BFVh40gIdEzaCACmRK9RF2AmQRzGqP7t2jjW0fQ&oq=wollis&gl=CH&dirflg=r&ttype=dep&date=08%2F30%2F13&time=18:40&noexp=0&noal=0&sort=def&mra=ls&t=m&z=14&start=0 from Wiedikon to Wollishofen] at 18:47.<br />
<br />
* Make sure to [http://www.zvv.ch/en/tickets/automatic-ticket-machine/index.html buy a ticket] because Swiss train conductors know no mercy. I suggest you buy a "Tageskarte" (which is a ticket for 24 hours) for zone 10.<br />
<br />
* The BBQ location is: [https://maps.google.ch/?ll=47.345842,8.536197&spn=0.001835,0.00284&t=h&z=19 in the park at the Bachstrasse near Lake Zurich].<br />
<br />
* If you like you can take a dive in the lake. The water is around 22°C. So make sure to pack a swimsuit and towel.<br />
<br />
==== Saturday ====<br />
<br />
Dinner: Pizza!<br />
<br />
* We'll order pizzas at the standard Erudify pizza place: Molino at Stauffacher.<br />
<br />
* Please [http://molino.ch/en/restaurants/zurich-stauffacher/food-beverages.html choose your order] (I can recommend Pizza Miss Italia)<br />
<br />
* Bas will come by and take your order and your money ;-)<br />

<div>== Introduction ==<br />
<br />
The Haskell hierarchical libraries implement a ListT monad transformer. There are, however, some problems with that implementation.<br />
<br />
* <hask>ListT</hask> imposes unnecessary strictness.<br />
* <hask>ListT</hask> isn't really a monad transformer, ie. <hask>ListT m</hask> isn't always a monad for a monad <hask>m</hask>.<br />
<br />
See the [[#Examples]] below for demonstrations of these problems.<br />
<br />
== Implementation ==<br />
<br />
The following implementation tries to provide a replacement for the ListT transformer using the following technique. Instead of associating a monadic side effect with a list of values (<hask>m [a]</hask>), it lets each element of the list have its own side effects, which only get `excecuted' if this element of the list is really inspected.<br />
<br />
There is also a [[ListT done right alternative]].<br />

<br />
== Examples ==<br />
<br />
Here are some examples that show why the old ListT is not right, and how to use the new ListT instead.<br />
<br />
=== Sum of squares ===<br />
<br />
Here's a silly example how to use ListT. It checks if an <hask>Int</hask> <hask>n</hask> is a sum of two squares. Each inspected possibility is printed, and if the number is indeed a sum of squares, another message is printed. Note that with our ListT, runMyTest only evaluates the side effects needed to find the first representation of <hask>n</hask> as a sum of squares, which would be impossible with the ListT implementation of <hask>Control.Monad.List.ListT</hask>.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
myTest :: Int -> ListT IO (Int, Int)<br />
myTest n = do<br />
let squares = liftList . takeWhile (<=n) $ map (^(2::Int)) [0..]<br />
x <- squares<br />
y <- squares<br />
lift $ print (x,y)<br />
guard $ x + y == n<br />
lift $ putStrLn "Sum of squares."<br />
return (x,y)<br />
<br />
runMyTest :: Int -> IO (Int, Int) <br />
runMyTest = fmap (fst . fromJust) . runListT' . myTest<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
A little example session (<hask>runMyTest'</hask> is implemented in exactly the same way as <hask>runMyTest</hask>, but uses <hask>Control.Monad.List.ListT</hask>):<br />
<br />
*Main> runMyTest 5<br />
(0,0)<br />
(0,1)<br />
(0,4)<br />
(1,0)<br />
(1,1)<br />
(1,4)<br />
Sum of squares.<br />
*Main> runMyTest' 5<br />
(0,0)<br />
(0,1)<br />
(0,4)<br />
(1,0)<br />
(1,1)<br />
(1,4)<br />
Sum of squares.<br />
(4,0)<br />
(4,1)<br />
Sum of squares.<br />
(4,4)<br />
<br />
=== Grouping effects ===<br />
<br />
I didn't understand the statement "<hask>ListT m</hask> isn't always a monad", even<br />
after I understood why it is too strict. I found the answer in<br />
[http://web.cecs.pdx.edu/~mpj/pubs/composing.html Composing Monads]. It's in<br />
fact a direct consequence of the unnecessary strictness. <hask>ListT m</hask> is<br />
not associative (which is one of the monad laws), because grouping affects<br />
when side effects are run (which may in turn affect the answers). Consider<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
import Control.Monad.List<br />
import Data.IORef<br />
<br />
test1 :: ListT IO Int<br />
test1 = do<br />
r <- liftIO (newIORef 0)<br />
(next r `mplus` next r >> next r `mplus` next r) >> next r `mplus` next r<br />
<br />
test2 :: ListT IO Int<br />
test2 = do<br />
r <- liftIO (newIORef 0)<br />
next r `mplus` next r >> (next r `mplus` next r >> next r `mplus` next r)<br />
<br />
next :: IORef Int -> ListT IO Int<br />
next r = liftIO $ do x <- readIORef r<br />
writeIORef r (x+1)<br />
return x<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Under Control.Monad.List.ListT, test1 returns the answers<br />
<hask>[6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13]</hask> while test2 returns the answers<br />
<hask>[4,5,6,7,10,11,12,13]</hask>. Under the above ListT (if all answers are forced), both return<br />
<hask>[2,3,5,6,9,10,12,13]</hask>.<br />
<br />
[[Andrew Pimlott]]<br />
<br />
=== Order of printing ===<br />
<br />
Here is another (simpler?) example showing why "<hask>ListT m</hask> isn't always a monad".<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
a,b,c :: ListT IO ()<br />
[a,b,c] = map (liftIO . putChar) ['a','b','c']<br />
<br />
t1 :: ListT IO ()<br />
t1 = ((a `mplus` a) >> b) >> c<br />
<br />
t2 :: ListT IO ()<br />
t2 = (a `mplus` a) >> (b >> c)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Under <hask>Control.Monad.List.ListT</hask>, running <hask>runListT t1</hask> prints "aabbcc", while <hask>runListT t2</hask> instead prints "aabcbc". Under the above ListT, they both print "abc" (if all answers were forced, they would print "abcabc").<br />
<br />
[[Roberto Zunino]]<br />
<br />
== Relation to Nondet ==<br />
<br />
NonDeterminism describes another monad transformer that can also be used to model nondeterminism. In fact, <hask>ListT</hask> and <hask>NondetT</hask> are quite similar with the following two functions translating between them<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
toListT :: (Monad m) => NondetT m a -> ListT m a<br />
toListT (NondetT fold) = ListT $ fold ((return.) . MCons) (return MNil)<br />
<br />
toNondetT :: (Monad m) => ListT m a -> NondetT m a<br />
toNondetT (ListT ml) = NondetT (\c n -> fold c n ml) where<br />
fold :: Monad m => (a -> m b -> m b) -> m b -> MList m a -> m b<br />
fold c n xs = fold' c n =<< xs<br />
<br />
fold' :: Monad m => (a -> m b -> m b) -> m b -> MList' m a -> m b<br />
fold' _ n MNil = n<br />
fold' c n (x `MCons` xs) = c x (fold c n xs)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
<hask>ListT</hask> is smaller than <hask>NondetT</hask> in the sense that <hask>toListT . toNondetT</hask> is the identity (is it ok to call <hask>ListT</hask> `retract'?). However, these functions don't define an isomorphism (check for example <hask>NondetT (\_ n -> liftM2 const n n)</hask>).<br />
<br />
[[Thomas Jaeger]]<br />
<br />
''I propose to replace every occurence of `fmap` in the above code with `liftM`, thereby moving `class Functor` and the complaint about it not being a superclass of `Monad` completely out of the picture. I'd simply do it, if there wasn't this feeling that I have overlooked something obvious. What is it? -- [[Udo Stenzel]]''<br />
<br />
There's no particular reason why I used fmap, except that the page has the (unfortunate!) title "ListT Done Right", and having Functor superclass of Monad certainly is the right thing. But I agree, that mistake has long been done and I feel my half-hearted cure is worse than the disease. You can find an alternative, more concise definition of a ListT transformer based on even-style lists here: [[ListT done right alternative]]<br />
<br />
[[amb]] has AmbT, which could be considered as 'ListT done right' (since Amb is identical to the list monad).<br />

<div>Functional pearls are elegant, instructive examples of functional programming. They are supposed to be fun, and they teach important programming techniques and fundamental design principles. They traditionally appear in [http://journals.cambridge.org/action/displayJournal?jid=JFP The Journal of Functional Programming], and at [http://www.icfpconference.org/index.html ICFP] and affiliated workshops.<br />
<br />
The history of functional pearls is covered by:<br />

<br />
There have been many functional pearls in JFP, and some others at<br />
ICFP and the Haskell Workshop. There is also a collection of them in<br />
[http://web2.comlab.ox.ac.uk/oucl/publications/books/fop/ The Fun of Programming].<br />
<br />
The pearls tend to concentrate on:<br />
<br />
* Examples of program calculation and proof<br />
* Neat presentations of new or old data structures<br />
* Interesting applications and techniques<br />
<br />
Some advice on writing pearls for JFP is available in this [http://www.comlab.ox.ac.uk/people/Jeremy.Gibbons/pearls/ editorial].<br />

<div>Haskell Hackaton in Cambridge, UK, '''August 12-14, 2011'''<br />
<br />
== About ==<br />
<br />
Come and spend a weekend in Cambridge hacking Haskell code in great surroundings with fantastic company! Haskell Hackathons are a tradition where everyone is welcome; we get together, work on projects with others or just do your own thing, the overall goal being to improve the Haskell ecosystem.<br />
<br />
CamHac will be held from 12-14 August 2011, at [http://www.homertonconference.com/ Homerton College] in Cambridge. As with previous Hackathons, all are welcome -- you do not have to be a Haskell guru. All you need is a basic knowledge of Haskell, a willingness to learn, and a project you're excited to help with (or a project of your own to work on).<br />
<br />
There will be lots of hacking, good food, and, of course, fun! <br />
<br />

<hr />
<div>== Making a Multiplate instance ==<br />
<br />
The easiest way to understand how to use Multiplate is to look at a simple example. We assume you have the transformers library installed.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
<br />
> import Data.Generics.Multiplate<br />
> import Data.Functor.Constant<br />
> import Data.Functor.Identity<br />
<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
Suppose you defined the follow set of mutually recursive data types for a simple language.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
<br />
> data Expr = Con Int<br />
> | Add Expr Expr<br />
> | Mul Expr Expr<br />
> | EVar Var<br />
> | Let Decl Expr<br />
> deriving (Eq, Show)<br />
> <br />
> data Decl = Var := Expr<br />
> | Seq Decl Decl<br />
> deriving (Eq, Show)<br />
> <br />
> type Var = String<br />
<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
The first thing we are going to define is a 'plate' for this language.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
<br />
> data Plate f = Plate<br />
> { expr :: Expr -> f Expr<br />
> , decl :: Decl -> f Decl<br />
> }<br />
<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
A plate is a record type that is parametrized by an applicative functor <code>f</code>. There is one field for each type in the mutually recursive structure we want to write generic functions for. Each field has type <code>A -> f A</code> where <code>A</code> is one of the data types.<br />
<br />
To use the Multiplate library we have to make <code>Plate</code> and instance of the <code>Multiplate</code> class. The instance requires that we write two functions: <code>multiplate</code> and <code>mkPlate</code>. Let's define each of these functions in turn.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
<br />
> instance Multiplate Plate where<br />
<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
We have to write one piece of boilerplate code for <code>multiplate</code>. However, once this is implemented, no further boilerplate code need be written.<br />
<code>multiplate</code> takes a <code>Plate</code> as a parameter. The idea is that for each expression in our language we will call this a function from this <code>Plate</code> parameter on the children of our expression and then combine the results.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
<br />
> multiplate child = Plate buildExpr buildDecl<br />
> where<br />
> buildExpr (Add e1 e2) = Add <$> expr child e1 <*> expr child e2<br />
> buildExpr (Mul e1 e2) = Mul <$> expr child e1 <*> expr child e2<br />
> buildExpr (Let d e) = Let <$> decl child d <*> expr child e<br />
> buildExpr e = pure e<br />
> buildDecl (v := e) = (:=) <$> pure v <*> expr child e<br />
> buildDecl (Seq d1 d2) = Seq <$> decl child d1 <*> decl child d2<br />
<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
Notice that when an expression has no children, as in the case of <code>v</code> in <code>v := e</code>, we simply use <code>pure v</code>.<br />
<code>pure</code> is used to handle the default case in <code>buildExpr</code>, also have no subexpressions.<br />
<br />
Next we have to define <code>mkPlate</code>. <code>mkPlate</code> is a function that builds a <code>Plate</code> given a generic builder function that produces values of type <code>a -> f a</code>. However these generic builder functions require a bit of help. The need to know what the projection function for the field that they are building is, so we pass that as a parameter to them.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
<br />
> mkPlate build = Plate (build expr) (build decl)<br />
<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
That's it. Now we are ready to use out generic library to process our mutually recursive data structure without using any more boilerplate.<br />
<br />
== Generic Programing with Multiplate ==<br />
<br />
=== Monoids ===<br />
<br />
Suppose we we want to get a list of all variables used in an expression. To do this we would use <code>preorderFold</code> with the list monoid. The first step is to build a <code>Plate</code> that handles the cases we care about. What we can do is use the default <code>purePlate</code> which does nothing, and modify it to handle the cases we care about.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
getVariablesPlate :: Plate (Constant [Var])<br />
getVariablesPlate = purePlate { exprPlate = exprVars }<br />
where<br />
exprVars (EVar v) = Constant [v]<br />
exprVars x = pure x<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
This can be written alternatively using some list comprehension tricks<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
getVariablesPlate = purePlate {expr = \x -> Constant [s|EVar s <- [x]]}<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
Now we can can build a plate that will get variables from all subexpressions and concatenate them together into one big list<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
variablesPlate = preorderFold getVariablesPlate<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
In a real program we would either put <code>getVariablesPlate</code> into <code>variablesPlates</code>'s <code>where</code> clause or else simply inline<br />
the definition.<br />
<br />
<code>variablesPlate</code> is a record of functions that will give a list of variables for each type in our mutually recursive record. Say we have an <code>Expr</code> we want to apply this to.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
e1 :: Expr<br />
e1 = Let ("x" := Con 42) (Add (EVar "x") (EVar "x"))<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
We can project out the function for <code>Expr</code>'s from our plate apply it to <code>e1</code> and then unwrap the <code>Constant</code> wrapper. There is a little helper function, called <code>foldFor</code>, that will upgrade of projection function to remove the <code>Constant</code> wrapper for us.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
>>> foldFor expr variablesPlate e1<br />
<br />
["x","x"]<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
=== Traversing ===<br />
<br />
Suppose we want to recursively evaluate constant expressions in the language.<br />
We can use <code>mapFamily</code> for this.<br />
We define a <code>Plate Identity</code> for the functionality we care about.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
doConstFold :: Plate Identity<br />
doConstFold = purePlate { expr = exprConst }<br />
where<br />
expr (Add (Con x) (Con y)) = return (Con (x + y))<br />
expr (Mul (Con x) (Con y)) = return (Con (x * y))<br />
expr x = pure x<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
Now we can can build a plate that will repeatedly apply this transformation from bottom up.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
constFoldPlate = mapFamily doConstFold<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
Let's build an declaration to test.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
d1 :: Decl<br />
d1 = "x" := (Add (Mul (Con 42) (Con 68)) (Con 7))<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
We can project out the function for <code>Decl</code>'s from our plate apply it to <code>d1</code> and then unwrap the <code>Identity</code> wrapper. Again, there is a little helper function, called <code>traverseFor</code>, that will upgrade of projection function to remove the <code>Identity</code> wrapper for us.<br />
<br />
<pre><br />
>>> traverseFor decl constFoldPlate d1<br />
<br />
"x" := Con 2863<br />
</pre><br />
<br />
== Alternative Plates ==<br />
<br />
Multiplate does not have to be used in the above way. Any structure can be made an instance of <code>Multiplate</code> as long as the following two Multiplate laws are satisfied:<br />
<br />
<OL><br />
<LI><code>multiplate purePlate = purePlate</code><br />
<LI><code>multiplate (composePlate p1 p2) = composePlate (multiplate p1) (multiplate p2)</code><br />
</OL><br />
<br />
For example, Sjoerd Visscher gives [https://gist.github.com/707890 an example] of a plate where each constructor of each data type has its own field in a record structure.<br />

You can apply for an account and a project using<br />
[http://community.haskell.org/admin/ the community server].<br />
<br />
Once you have an account and/or a project, you upload a Darcs repository as follows. First, initialize your repository on the server:<br />
<br />
$ ssh community.haskell.org<br />
you@haskell:~$ cd /srv/code/yourproject<br />
you@haskell:/srv/code/yourproject$ darcs init<br />
<br />

<br />
$ darcs push community.haskell.org:/srv/code/yourproject<br />
<br />
== Projects ==<br />
<br />
If you have a project that you want to work on at the Hackathon, please describe it here.<br />
<br />
Since Hackathons are great for teamwork, consider joining one of the projects mentioned below. If you're interested in one of these projects, add your name to the list of hackers under that project.<br />

=== DPM (Darcs Patch Manager) ===<br />
<br />
The Darcs Patch Manager (DPM for short) is a tool that simplifies working with darcs. It is most effective when used in an environment where developers do not push their patches directly to the main repository but where patches undergo a reviewing process before they are actually applied. See http://www.factisresearch.com/2010/03/dpm/ for a short tutorial.<br />
<br />
At the hackathon, we would like to add support for detecting conflicts between patches to the DPM. Some help from the darcs hackers on ideas how this feature could be realized would be great! Also, the integration with darcs is quite fragile, so we would also appreciate feedback from darcs hackers here.<br />
<br />
Here are some ideas:<br />
<br />
* Track conflicts. DPM should be aware of conflicts between two patches and between a patch and the current state of the repo.<br />
* Diff between two patches in the same patch group.<br />
* Improved apply command. DPM should select automatically the patch to apply instead of relying on darcs' interactive apply command<br />
* Proper configuration file. At the moment, DPM relies exclusively on commandline arguments for customization.<br />
* Some more patch states could be useful: DISCUSSION (similar to UNDECIDED but already reviewed and awaiting feedback from the patch developer), UNAPPLICABLE, ACCEPTED (ready to be applied but still unapplied). We should discuss which of these states are really needed and which can already be represented through the existing states + comments + the reviewed flag.<br />
* The review command should offer the possibility to apply the patch directly to the repo. Something dialog like this would be cool:<br />
<br />
What should I do with this patch?<br />
a) accept<br />
r) reject<br />
d) discard<br />
w) wait<br />
s) send review to author and wait<br />
<br />
* Support for transitive dependencies<br />
* Readline support<br />
* Cleanup command (remove closed patch groups from the DB)<br />
* Automatize interactive tests. DPM is lacking a good test suite. Often, I test DPM interactively by executing a series of shell commands and checking that the output is correct. It would be nice if we could record the shell commands and their output (the script tool could be useful here), so that we could replay them later.<br />
* Bounce patch via email.<br />
* Webfrontend for 'dpm list'<br />

=== Need for speed ===<br />
<br />
In 2006 the Python community had a [http://wiki.python.org/moin/NeedForSpeed NeedForSpeed sprint]. Some Haskell libraries, like the containers library, could use some benchmarks (using e.g. [http://hackage.haskell.org/package/criterion Criterion]) and hopefully some performance improvements.<br />
<br />
=== event ===<br />
<br />
The [http://github.com/tibbe/event event library] will hopefully replace GHC's I/O manager with a more scalable implementation, based on better data structures and more efficient system calls (e.g. epoll/kqueue).<br />
<br />
The project is nearing completion, but more testing and benchmarking is needed. The code also needs to be merged into GHC.<br />

=== Data.Binary on continuations ===<br />
<br />
The [http://code.haskell.org/binary/ Data.Binary library] provides blazing fast reading/writing of binary data. There are a few things I'd like to see improved, hopefully before inclusion in the [http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/ Haskell Platform]:<br />
<br />
* It's not possible to use the library on large inputs without resorting to lazy I/O. By changing the underlying implementation to use continuations and expose a continuations based API we can process large inputs without resorting to unsafe operations. This needs to be done while still offering good performance.<br />
* The library lacks error handling. The above implementation would naturally support communicating errors to the user. There are however other ways to achieve the same result.<br />
* The library currently includes two separate features in one package, low-level binary parsing of simple types (e.g. Ints and Words) and a data format (the Binary typeclass). Arguably the library should be split in two.<br />
* The binary data format should be documented and it should be clear which types are guaranteed to have the same encoding for the foreseeable future.<br />

Comment by Jürgen "Jutaro" Nicklisch: I've hacked an addition package to binary: [http://hackage.haskell.org/package/binary-shared binary-shared], which gives sharing of data for serialization and deserialization.

=== Testable Documentation ===<br />
I'll work on testable documentation. There is still some work to be done on [http://hackage.haskell.org/package/DocTest DocTest] (e. g. integration with Haddock, support for QuickCheck properties). An other idea is to define some format for tutorials, that allows us to verify that given Examples do actually work. Please drop me some lines (simon hengel at wiktory org), if you are interested in the topic.<br />

=== Haskell eval/type-checker/smallchecker as a RESTful service ===<br />
Considering hacking more on the libraries behind TryHaskell as a service for checking small chunks of code -- similar to CodePad but as a RESTful service callable from JavaScript. This could be used on tutorials and online books such as Learn You A Haskell for testing code samples and interactive exercises (e.g. using smallcheck to check correctness of exercise answers). I envisage blog posts showing snippets that one can run in-page. It's currently on my home computer but I have set a Linode VPS for this purpose (it could also work with multiple hosts although I'm not too up on how to do that). Let me know if you're interesting in using or hacking on this idea. Also thinking about how to utilise CodePad if possible.<br />

===symhs===<br />
[http://code.google.com/p/sympy/ sympy] is a very good and easy to use symbolic math package for python. We would like to create something similar in Haskell. Of course the time will be limited, so we will try to concentrate on something minimal which is already useful.<br />

=== Tunskell ===<br />
<br />
[http://bitbucket.org/danderson/tunskell A VPN mesh daemon] written in Haskell. Among other things, it implements an IP routing engine, the BGP dynamic routing protocol, and the results so far show that it's smoking fast at what it does.<br />
<br />
The code is still under heavy construction. The goal for the hackathon is to finish the BGP portion of the code, hooking up a routing table using that BGP code, and get multiple routers communicating and routing between each other, with some QuickCheck and Criterion thrown in. Other possible tasks are adding transport security (authentication + crypto between peers), peer management (disconnect/reconnect handling), handling network timeouts, and figuring out how to do configuration and hot configuration reloading.<br />
<br />
Since the aim is partially to dispel the myth that Haskell can't be used for I/O heavy real world code, help on improving the performance of the code is most welcome.<br />

<br />
=== UHC ===<br />
We will work on library support (Cabal, FFI) for UHC.<br />
There are many other projects, work in progress, etc, so just ask us if you want<br />
to work on a UHC related project or just are interested to know a bit more about its internals.<br />
<br />
Hackers: Atze Dijkstra, Andres L&ouml;h, Jeroen Fokker<br />
<br />
=== Testable Documentation ===<br />
I'll work on testable documentation. There is still some work to be done on [http://hackage.haskell.org/package/DocTest DocTest] (e. g. integration with Haddock, support for QuickCheck properties). An other idea is to define some format for tutorials, that allows us to verify that given Examples do actually work. Please drop me some lines (simon hengel at wiktory org), if you are interested in the topic.<br />
<br />
'''Update:''' I plan to finish DocTest integration with Haddock and then spend the rest of the weekend on Cabal. If you are interested in testable documentation or if you have any ideas, I would still like to chat with you;)<br />
<br />
Hackers: Simon Hengel<br />
<br />
=== Histories on data types ===<br />
I'm going to be working on a seamlessly extending ADTs with histories and lifting functions on those ADTs to properly extend the histories. Things I'll probably spend time on: trying to find a clean SYB formulation for this, and extending the Diff library on Hackage to work on ByteString and Text.<br />
<br />
Hackers: Fred Ross<br />
<br />
=== Haskell eval/type-checker/smallchecker as a RESTful service ===<br />
Considering hacking more on the libraries behind TryHaskell as a service for checking small chunks of code -- similar to CodePad but as a RESTful service callable from JavaScript. This could be used on tutorials and online books such as Learn You A Haskell for testing code samples and interactive exercises (e.g. using smallcheck to check correctness of exercise answers). I envisage blog posts showing snippets that one can run in-page. It's currently on my home computer but I have set a Linode VPS for this purpose (it could also work with multiple hosts although I'm not too up on how to do that). Let me know if you're interesting in using or hacking on this idea. Also thinking about how to utilise CodePad if possible.<br />
<br />

<br />
===Cabal===<br />
[http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/hackage/wiki Cabal] just recently i had to implement a minimal packaging system for my work. for some of the tasks it was convenient to reuse some of the cabal features. so i just stumbled across a post from duncan from last year ([http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/cabal-devel/2009-January/004548.html post from duncan]) trying to find developers interested in helping with cabal. don't know if anybody wants to do some work on that but if there is i'd be up for it.<br />
<br />
Hackers: Oliver Mueller, Simon Hengel<br />
<br />
===symhs===<br />
[http://code.google.com/p/sympy/ sympy] is a very good and easy to use symbolic math package for python. We would like to create something similar in Haskell. Of course the time will be limited, so we will try to concentrate on something minimal which is already useful.<br />
<br />
Hackers: Mihaly Barasz, Gergely Risko<br />
<br />
=== Tunskell ===<br />
<br />
[http://bitbucket.org/danderson/tunskell A VPN mesh daemon] written in Haskell. Among other things, it implements an IP routing engine, the BGP dynamic routing protocol, and the results so far show that it's smoking fast at what it does.<br />
<br />
The code is still under heavy construction. The goal for the hackathon is to finish the BGP portion of the code, hooking up a routing table using that BGP code, and get multiple routers communicating and routing between each other, with some QuickCheck and Criterion thrown in. Other possible tasks are adding transport security (authentication + crypto between peers), peer management (disconnect/reconnect handling), handling network timeouts, and figuring out how to do configuration and hot configuration reloading.<br />
<br />
Since the aim is partially to dispel the myth that Haskell can't be used for I/O heavy real world code, help on improving the performance of the code is most welcome.<br />
<br />

<br />
=== HOC ===<br />
<br />
The [http://code.google.com/p/hoc/ Haskell Objective C-Bridge] (HOC) currently does not work out-of-the box on latest ghc/cabal. We want to fix this, work on [http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/hackage/ticket/188 cabal support for building Objective C modules], and eventually see if it is possible to get HOC on hackage.<br />
<br />
Hackers: Benedikt Huber, David Markvica<br />
<br />
=== Haskell Platform ===<br />
<br />
Time to release the [http://haskell.org/platform/Haskell Platform]<br />
<br />
Hackers: Don<br />
<br />
=== Email ===<br />
<br />
A library for sending emails via SMTP or `sendmail`. In the future the email library should be extended to include parsing and generating of emails, reading mboxes and maildirs or connecting to IMAP and POP servers.<br />
<br />
Hackers: Gero Kriependorf, Dirk Spöri, Johannes Weiss, <br />
<br />
=== Data.Category ===<br />
<br />
An implementation of restricted categories. It contains categorical functors which support the identity functor and functor composition without needing newtype wrappers.<br />

=== Scion ===<br />
<br />
==== Description ====<br />
<br />
Scion is a library that aims to provide IDE-like functionality on top of the GHC API. It aims to be front-end agnostic, thus serve as a common middle-layer for various Haskell programming frontends like Emacs, Vim, Yi, Eclipse, etc.<br />
<br />
It currently only provides rudimentary functionality, such as loading a project and single-threaded background-typechecking. Currently, Scion's only frontend is Emacs, but a Vim frontend is in the underway. Possible Hackathon projects could be:<br />
<br />
* Extend Scion's capabilities. For example: cross-refs, jump to source, more type information<br />
<br />
* Add another Scion frontend. E.g., hook up Yi or Eclipse with scion <br />

=== Type class aliases ===<br />
<br />
==== Description ====<br />
<br />
Type class aliases is a much wanted extension to Haskell proposed long ago by John Meacham ([http://repetae.net/recent/out/classalias.html John's website], [http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/haskell/2005-October/thread.html#16590 mailing list]) that has never been implemented yet. It is time this extension sees the light of day!<br />
<br />
GHC will be the target compiler. Perhaps GHC plugins ([http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Plugins GHC wiki], [http://www.haskell.org/sitewiki/images/f/f0/TMR-Issue12.pdf The Monad Reader 12]) are of help here?<br />
<br />
Please have a look at the [[Context alias|context alias wiki page]] and extend it if you can.<br />
<br />
==== Ideas ====<br />
<br />
===== from Martijn van Steenbergen =====<br />
<br />
As a starting point we'll focus on supporting the following syntax:<br />
<br />
class alias FooBar a = (Foo a, Bar a)<br />
<br />
x :: FooBar a => a<br />
x = ...<br />
<br />
===== from Wolfgang Jeltsch =====<br />
<br />
A “class alias” actually doesn’t stand for a class but for a context (or a part of a context). So it might be better to choose a slightly different syntax:<br />
<br />
context Foobar a = (Foo a, Bar a)<br />
<br />
John Meacham proposes the following syntax for class aliases (context aliases) with superclass constraints:<br />
<br />
class alias Num a = Eq a => (Additive a, Multiplicative a)<br />
<br />
This is not consistent with the superclass syntax of class declarations. I think, we should use this syntax:<br />
<br />
class alias Eq a => Num a = (Additive a, Multiplicative a)<br />
<br />
Or better:<br />
<br />
context Eq a => Num a = (Additive a, Multiplicative a)<br />

<br />
In theory these operators (order-by and group-by)<br />
should generalize to monads and once you do<br />
several other design options open up. These two operators could even<br />
be unified into a single operator.<br />
<br />
Starting with sort-by, I think the monadic version is fairly obvious.<br />
Take something like the following code.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
do a <- ma<br />
...<br />
b <- mb<br />
c <- mc<br />
sort by (b, c) using foo<br />
d <- md<br />
...<br />
return (a, b, c, d)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
It would de-sugar to:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
((do a <- ma<br />
...<br />
b <- mb<br />
c <- mc<br />
return ((b, c), (a, b, c))<br />
) `foo` fst) >>= \result -><br />
do let (a, _, _) = result<br />
(_, b, _) = result<br />
(_, _, c) = result<br />
d <- md<br />
...<br />
return (a, b, c, d)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Where we have:<br />
<haskell><br />
foo :: forall a. (a -> t) -> m a -> m a<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
==== Generalizing Order-by to Group-by ====<br />
In fact after a few tweaks it turns out that order-by and group-by could operate under the exact same de-sugaring.<br />
<br />
Suppose we let the type of foo be:<br />
<haskell><br />
foo :: (Functor n) => forall a. (a -> t) -> m a -> m (n a)<br />
</haskell><br />
Notice that I said "m (n a)" and not "m (m a)". The group-by de-sugaring that I'm going to show works for any Functor "n", and if we imagine "n" to be some type like the following then order-by is just a special case of group-by.<br />
<haskell><br />
type Ident a = a<br />
</haskell><br />
(It wouldn't actually be valid Haskell code to use a type synonym in that way though, but it conveys the idea.)<br />
<br />
The de-sugaring to support this would take something like the following (inspired by arrow syntax).<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
do a <- ma<br />
b <- mb<br />
c <- mc<br />
foo args $-< (a, b) -- group by (a, b) using (foo args)<br />
g <- mg<br />
return (a, b, c, d, e, f, g)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
It would produce:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
(ma >>= \a -><br />
mb >>= \b -><br />
mc >>= \c -><br />
return ((a, b), (a, b, c))) `foo` args >>= \result -><br />
let a = fmap (\(_, (a, _, _)) -> a) result<br />
b = fmap (\(_, (_, b, _)) -> b) result<br />
c = fmap (\(_, (_, _, c)) -> c) result in<br />
md >>= \d -><br />
return (a, b, c, d)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
(Note that after the "foo", the types of "a", "b" and "c" have changed. Their types before "foo" get wrapped by "n" after "foo".)<br />
<br />
==== Even more generalization ====<br />
<br />
Once we have done this, another possibility opens up.<br />
Notice that the first of each pair in "result" was never used except<br />
from within "foo". It doesn't do any work in the result.<br />
Now suppose we change the type of foo to:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
foo :: (Functor n) => forall a. m (t, a) -> m (n (u, a))<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Now "foo" can not only read existing bindings from "t", but<br />
it can also create new bindings with "u".<br />
(This hard wires the extraction function to always be "fst",<br />
but it simplifies the presentation a bit.<br />
The other form with a general extraction could still be used.)<br />
<br />
The previous syntax could then be extended to something like:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
do a <- ma<br />
b <- mb<br />
c <- mc<br />
(d, e, f) <-$ foo args $-< (a, b)<br />
g <- mg<br />
return (a, b, c, d, e, f, g)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
This would then de-sugar to:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
(ma >>= \a -><br />
mb >>= \b -><br />
mc >>= \c -><br />
return ((a, b), (a, b, c))) `foo` args >>= \result -><br />
let d = fmap (\((d, _, _), (_, _, _)) -> d) result<br />
e = fmap (\((_, e, _), (_, _, _)) -> e) result<br />
f = fmap (\((_, _, f), (_, _, _)) -> f) result<br />
a = fmap (\((_, _, _), (a, _, _)) -> a) result<br />
b = fmap (\((_, _, _), (_, b, _)) -> b) result<br />
c = fmap (\((_, _, _), (_, _, c)) -> c) result in<br />
mg >>= \g -><br />
return (a, b, c, d, e, f, g)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
==== Conclusion ====<br />
<br />
The above might have gone too far down the generalization road and<br />
put to many bells and whistles on the thing,<br />
so it may be worth trimming it down.<br />
I also haven't given any thought to what applications would need this.<br />
I just wanted to consider how far these operations<br />
<br />
--------------------------------<br />
<br />
Just a few little things:<br />
# Page 2, "sortBy is part of the Haskell Prelude" - it's actually in the List module. (I just spotted you've got the same thing in SYB with Class, 7.1)<br />
# The Down trick is very neat, perhaps that should be a part of the standard libraries.<br />
# Page 5, MSFT is in 'quotes', but should be in "quotes".<br />
<br />
Your syntax requires four new keywords, at least one of which is already a standard function (group). Plus with the knowledge of the keywords the parse tree is entirely different. From your paper:<br />
<br />
order by x >= y using takeWhile<br />
<br />
At first reading I parsed >= as the root node, since in Haskell that would be the way it works. Your 'then' syntax in 6.1 seems preferable as it doesn't take any additional keywords.<br />
<br />
--[[User:NeilMitchell|Neil Mitchell]] 16:04, 19 June 2007 (UTC)<br />
------------------------------<br />
The paper also mentions a function "the." I wasn't able to find this function through hoogle or ":t the" in ghci. Perhaps you could add a one line description the way "nub" is described.<br />
<br />
:see section 3.4, its a custom function complete with implementation --[[User:NeilMitchell|Neil Mitchell]] 23:28, 19 June 2007 (UTC)<br />
<br />
::Thanks Neil, I missed it.<br />
<br />
As a non-expert, the sense I get is that whenever I see "by" in a list comprehension, I should expect functions or expressions that operate on lists and not on individual elements of lists.<br />
<br />
When I first started reading the paper, I was going to recommend another extension (for time series) to allow things like moving averages...imagine my surprise when I find exactly the example I was going to suggest :)<br />
[[User:Falcon|Falcon]] 17:10, 19 June 2007 (UTC)<br />
<br />
Maybe I didn't get some part of the paper, but is it really necessary to have 'order by' or 'group by' as syntax extensions? Isn't it possible to allow developers to use any function as long it matches the types of 'order' or 'group'?<br />
[[User:Falcon|Falcon]] 18:53, 20 June 2007 (UTC)<br />
<br />
------<br />
<br />
In the introduction, perhaps it's worth noting that JavaScript 1.7 supports list comprehensions.<br />
[[User:Fanf|Fanf]] 14:37, 4 July 2007 (UTC)<br />
<br />
------<br />
<br />
The type given for sortBy on page 2 should be sortBy :: (a -> a -> Ordering) -> [a] -> [a].<br />
[[User:Botje|Botje]] 18:50, 5 July 2007 (UTC)<br />
<br />
------<br />
<br />
[[User:Janis|Janis]] 11:10, 17 July 2007 (UTC) : <br />
<br />
In the middle of the left side of page nine, I was confused by "... we can relate the operation of f on the two different encodings of tuples discussed above ...". It seems those different encodings are actrually discussed only later ("below" rather than "above"). Or I did miss something here.<br />
<br />
Section 4.6 claims that patterns built of tuples are irrefutable. I don't see how this is the case in Haskell, in which tuple types are lifted. It is very well possible to refute an (a,b)-pattern: just match it against undefined.<br />
<br />
------<br />
<br />
A comparison with HaskellDB would be interesting; they're obviously rather different, as HaskellDB restricts you to writing queries with a direct translation to SQL, and field values are passed around in a kind of record rather than as explicit Haskell values (since they end up being implemented as bits of SQL). But if you are suggesting that these comprehensions could be used for direct database access, HaskellDB is a relevant "competitor".<br />
[[User:GaneshSittampalam|GaneshSittampalam]] 07:59, 20 July 2007 (UTC)<br />
<br />
------<br />
<br />
* For section 8: there is also GROUP BY in XSLT 2.0.<br />
* I think you should consider showing examples with records. The unextended Haskell examples in chapter 2 become a lot less complex with records. See [http://lambda-the-ultimate.org/node/2366#comment-35317]<br />
