Disclaimer: I'm not a Haskell programmer, so I don't have a deep understanding of what I'm saying here. The virtue of pure functional programming languages is that when you get your code to compile, it's almost certain to work right. The problems are twofold: when your program does not compile, it's often not easy to figure out just why; and when your program has terrible performance, as it often will if you write it naively, it's not clear what to do to fix it. Both of these are symptoms of the same disconnect: what your code *appears* to be doing is not at all what the graph reduction machine inside is *actually* doing. > Ah ok... shame you didn't make it first, you could've made a fortune > :) Eh, working for traders is not the way to a restful life. -- Overhead, without any fuss, the stars were going out. --Arthur C.
