(*) Find the number of elements of a list.

```
myLength :: [a] -> Int
myLength [] = 0
myLength (_:xs) = 1 + myLength xs
myLength' :: [a] -> Int
myLength' list = myLength_acc list 0 -- same, with accumulator
where
myLength_acc [] n = n
myLength_acc (_:xs) n = myLength_acc xs (n + 1)
```

```
myLength' = foldl (\n _ -> n + 1) 0
myLength'' = foldr (\_ n -> n + 1) 0
myLength''' = foldr (\_ -> (+1)) 0
myLength'''' = foldr ((+) . (const 1)) 0
myLength''''' = foldr (const (+1)) 0
```

```
myLength' xs = snd $ last $ zip xs [1..] -- Just for fun
myLength'' = snd . last . (flip zip [1..]) -- Because point-free is also fun
myLength''' = fst . last . zip [1..] -- same, but easier
```

```
myLength = sum . map (\x -> 1)
```

This is `length`

in `Prelude`
