Example text

45 CHAPTER 3 Reusing Code Through Lists Chapter 1 explained that a functional language like Haskell is characterized by its profuse use of functions as parameters or return values. However, Chapter 2 didn’t mention anything about this topic. I’ll rectify that here. In this chapter, you will focus on not one but three ways in which Haskell allows for a great amount of reuse. One of the ways in which Haskell shines in the area of reusability is through the creation of functions that can work over values of any type that respects a certain form, or design.

Here’s an example: u In an if block, the lines for then and else must be indented the same way. u In a let or a where block, all local bindings must start in the same position. N Note When reading Haskell code, you will notice that Haskellers also tend to align other symbols, like the = signs in a local bindings block. The layout rule applies only to the beginning of expressions, so alignment is not enforced. However, it’s a common convention that you should follow or at least get used to. As a final remark, Haskell also allows you to group blocks with { and } and separate expressions with ;.

The first one is a multiline comment, which spans from {- to the nearest -}. Multiline comments are not affected by carriage returns like single-line comments are. Single-line comments span from -- to the first newline symbol found in the source code. If you have problems understanding this recursive definition, I encourage you to try applying it to some small lists. For example, the following are the steps when evaluating [1, 2] +++ [3, 4]: 1. The initial expression comes in as [1,2] +++ [3,4].
