Haskell is hard, and cats are busy, but if they can do it so can we.
We are underway. Up next Chapters 2 and 3.
Here's a quick explication of the QuickSort program we covered in session One.
Please download and install the G.H.C. (Glasgow Haskell Compiler) which is part of:
For OSX-Maverick here's some special instructions, thanks to Kat:
here is the link to the Erik's video series.
NOTE! the Haskell-platform, has all the tools we'll need and then some. The book and video both use the deprecated Hugs compiler; it works okay; but the renowned Glasgow Haskell Compiler 7.6.x included in the Haskell-platform, is the current standard. When it's installed and you open a command prompt (terminal) and type ghci you should get the prelude prompt, Prelude>. And you are ready to go. Those using windows might have an easier time with WinGHCi, which makes loading modules easier. Any text editor will do, but some do a better job of highlighting and such. Popular choices are Emacs, Vim, and Sublime.
and we'll collect illustrative examples and post them to:
