a young programmer who recently discovered functional programming, and thinks it can solve every problem in the world
in reply to pissed off about functional programming
Back where I studied, the first language of the course is now Haskell. As a result, most students get to think that that is the only way of coding, and keep on doing it that way.
I remember the teacher who taught me Perl complaining to other student: "You're coding in Perl as if it were Haskell!!!"
Which is kind of like what C-programmers do when they start programming Perl, but with a different language.
Hum... I wonder if it also happens with other languages? :-)
