1 Bad format

The format of this page is awful. I'm collecting the problem descriptions, but having to be very careful not to look at the solutions.

The function signature and description of what it is to do should be given. The solutions should be on some separate page.

+1, especially the solutions on separate page. Oligomous 18:15, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
+1, agreed. Having visible solutions on this page really takes the fun out of it. I think I will start moving the solutions to subpages of 99 questions/Solutions, after solving them myself of course :-) Wapcaplet 15:05, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

2 Does the problem 1 example need correction?

The problem refers us to
as a
function providing the same functionality. However,
has type
[a] -> a
which differs from the Lisp example's type
[a] -> [a]
. Should we revise the example or should we rephrase the reference to
to highlight the difference?

I think the answer to problem 6 is kind of "cheating". I think something like this would be a nice alternate solutions:

isPalindrome        :: Eq (a) => [a] -> Bool
isPalindrome []     = True
isPalindrome [x]    = True
isPalindrome (x:xs) = x == last xs && isPalindrome (init xs)
