A problem where some concepts of extensible records could be useful is described in the HaskellDB project. More precisely, the problem is described in the paper downloadable from
- Chalmers version of HaskellDB (see Papers subsection on Documentation)
- which presupposes reading also paper on the Daam Leijen's original HaskellDB page (see Documentation subpage, PostScript version)
Proposals, implementations can be found on the FirstClassLabels page of Haskell' Wiki.
- Daan Leijen: First-class labels for extensible rows. See also the description of the Haskell-like language Morrow, it is based on the concepts of the article.
- Simon Peyton Jones and Greg Morrisett: A proposal for records in Haskell
- Mark Jones and Simon Peyton Jones: Lightweight Extensible Records for Haskell
- Mark P. Jones: A prototype implementation of extensible records for Hugs
- Didier Remy's Typing record concatenation for free on Erik Knoop's page
