Bar Shirtcliff rated it really liked it Feb 14, Same guy who also brought you generics with type erasure in Java. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
What was great about the treatment was that each new concept was introduced with little fanfare. I think I should have read it better in On the other hand the implications of Monadic computations are far-reaching. Introduction to Functional Programming by Richard S.
Daouda Traore rated it really liked it Nov 30, It was released before the Haskell 98 report was finished, and we are already using the Haskell report, while a new one is in the making.
There are new chapters on program optimisation, abstract datatypes in a functional setting, and programming in a monadic style.
The focus is mainly on the theoretical side, ot many of the exercises proofs. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Gaurav Kaul rated it really liked it Sep 23, Must do a quick reread.
Johan Linde rated it liked it Feb 21, Fknctional the first e Bird and Wadler 1st ed. The book is self-contained, assuming no prior knowledge of programming and is suitable as an introductory undergraduate text for first- or second-year students.
No trivia funcgional quizzes yet. The four instead of five stars is because, unfortunately, it is not as self-contained as it claims to be, and some of the exercises can’t be tackled with only the introduction to the topic given by the author.

Tim Robinson rated it it was amazing Apr 02, It uses a Functional Language that looks Like Miranda. As in the first edition, there is an emphasis on the fundamental lrogramming for reasoning about functional programs, and for deriving them systematically from their specifications. Mace Ousley rated it it was amazing Nov 04, Language-agnostic to the extent that most code can be easily translated to most modern functional programming languages. Comprehensive, readable, and demanding. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
