Current Unsolved Questions

  • Why do Haskell language extensions exist?
  • How do you do graphics in Haskell?
  • How come (e.g.) Smalltalk provides 27 different types of collection, but Haskell only ever involves single-linked lists and binary trees?
  • Why is putStr xs1; putStr xs2 slower than putStr (xs1 ++ xs2)?
