(call for contribution)
Revision as of 06:19, 21 December 2006
1 Call for Contribution
This fun project, called "The Other Prelude", and is a creative reconstruction of the standard Prelude. By disregarding history and compatibility, we get a clean sheet.
2 Naming Conventions
The principal is to make the names very readable for both beginners and category theorists (if any).
3 The Hierarchy
- - Minimalistic module.TheOtherPrelude
- - Convenient definitions.TheOtherPrelude.Extension
4 The Code
Currently, the code is in Wiki form. If people do agree that the collaborative decisions begot something pretty, we'll have a group of files in darcs.haskell.org some time.
The imaginery Prelude as it stands,
How to use it, as it stands,
import Prelude () -- hide everything import TheOtherPrelude -- get everything import qualified TheOtherPrelude.Monad as M -- standard convention
