To get a feel for what real world Haskell looks like, here are some examples from various popular Haskell projects. Haskell code comes in three flavours: plane, literate Bird-style, and literate latex style. Additionally, cpp is sometimes used for preprocessing.

Library code

Library code usually differs from application code: it is often highly structured, and documented with haddock, and can be rather optimised. Some instructive examples:

List.hs

Map.hs

Tree.hs

Graph.hs

Monad.hs

QuickCheck.hs

PrettyPrint.hs

StateT.hs

Dfa.lhs

RedBlackTree.hs

Prime.hs

Foldable.hs

ByteString.hs

Combinators.hs

SmallCheck.hs

A large collection of online Haskell source

Application code

Code from popular Haskell applications. Such code often makes use of an monadic IO, and sometimes other advanced features (such as concurrency):

Darcs, a revision control system (uses literate Haskell style)

Pugs, a perl6 implementation

Yi, a text editor

Conjure, a bittorrent client

DownNova, a file downloading program

cpphs, an implementation of the C preprocessor

GHC, a Haskell compiler

Djinn, a theorem prover

c2hs, a C to Haskell interface generator

Lambdabot, an IRC bot

hmp3, an curses mp3 player

Wiki examples

Here is a list of other random code collected on this wiki, replacing CodeOnTheWiki. Contributors of code to the old area are encouraged to bring their code over here.

Prelude extensions: Simple things you've always wished were in the Prelude.

Gallery: Complete small programs.

Blow your mind: Short, useful, cool, magical examples, which should incite the reader's curiosity and (hopefully) lead him to a deeper understanding of advanced Haskell concepts.

Sudoku: Solvers for popular puzzle Sudoku.

NewMonads: Useful monads that are not in the main library.

PrincipalVariationSearch: Principal variation search
