The four instead of five stars is because, unfor I highly recommend the book to anybody looking for a solid base of functional programming theory. Michael rated it it was amazing Mar 17, Bar Programmig rated it really liked it Feb 14, However, the use of explicit partial computations and lazy evaluation makes it harder to follow examples, and complicates ptogramming program cost model and proofs by structural induction.
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. Of course, more recent topics like idioms applicative functors aren’t touched upon.
I have started reading the first book as a PDF and can see his point. Shreedhar Kotekar rated it really liked it May 05, Andreas Meingast rated it really liked it Apr 14, Introduction to Functional Programming by Richard S. Richard Simpson Bird is a computer scientist. And Miranda although outdated can still be run if you have something that runs Solaris Ilumnios.
Introduction to Functional Programming
It is also a book, meaning some things are outdated. I highly recommend the book to anybody looking for a solid base of functional programming inrroduction. On the other hand the implications of Monadic computations are far-reaching.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. I can understand that as well. The point this book makes is that progressing throug For me, this was a great book for learning Haskell. There are complete new case studies, and inteoduction new exercises. In the popular literature about Haskell a lot of digital ink is spilled over Monads, but really they’re no big deal conceptually.
Daouda Traore rated it really liked it Nov 30, Return to Book Page. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Tom rated it really liked it Aug 04, The book can be dense at parts, and it is packed with information. Progarmming Miranda although outdated can still be run if you have something that run [1st Edition]Was a freshman year textbook used fir introducing Functional Programming at the Computer Science department at the University of Twente in Read the first edition, since subsequent editions are rewritten more in the “programming language overview” style.
Look up some of his presentations on YouTube There are other authors named Richard Bird: Must do a quick reread. Language-agnostic to the extent that most code can be easily translated to most modern functional programming languages. 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. Tim Robinson rated it it was amazing Apr 02, Lists with This Book.
Dmitry Paramonov rated it it was amazing Aug 03, Hardcoverpages. One of the most inspiring CS book I’ve ever read. Be the first to ask a question about Introduction to Functional Programming.
Sep 09, Hans rated it really liked it. Nowadays probably Haskell would be used.

Jobaer Chowdhury rated it it was amazing Apr 15, All in all, it is an excellent book with which to hone theory, and for that I can’t recommend it enough. Johan Linde rated it liked it Feb 21, 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.
Same guy who also brought you generics with type erasure in Java. Refresh and try again. It uses a Functional Language that looks Like Miranda. Open Preview See a Problem?
