As with Perl, you cannot make sense of an individual source file without having already seen its dependancies.

And, if you are correct about Haskell allowing use before definition (which I didn't think it did but...), then multiple passes may be required.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
