Quotes of the Week

  • carpi: all said ... the brain of someone of who writes compilers for haskell scares me nuts. I wouldn't want them concentrating on me, lest I catch fire.
  • Igloo: The major problem, as far as I can see, is how to construct the mumble'.
  • edwardk: i want to be able to know if the compiler is being stupid or if its just me, and without any sort of model to reason about it with, i always have to assume it could be the compiler; i already have to deal with that problem, its called 'scala'
  • ddarius: Now I can just point people at a readable and relevant paper instead of having to Cale it.
  • rwbarton: also, a generally safe answer to "was there an update to lambdabot recently" is "no"
  • camccann: you want a debugger? GHC has one. Except that stepping through lazy evaluation is like listening to a stream of consciousness narrative told by a 5-year-old with ADHD.
