In defense of Haskell, you don't need to know a lot about monads to do I/O, sorta like how you don't need to know a lot about streams to do I/O in C++. Of course, Haskell's type system makes it hard to ignore the IO monad, and eventually you're going to run into trouble if you try to obstinately ignore monads, but you're hardly forced to grok monads in fullness just to write "Hello, world!" to the screen.

    [GotToBTru]: You can't tunafish, but some seafood companies can tunafish. More fun with English.
    [virtualsue]: a veterinarian told me to cut down on my cat's food. i said, when i do that she just catches more mice
    [thezip]: My dogs are also excellent mousers, at least that's what they tell me.
    [GotToBTru]: our beagle has dispatched 3 rabbits to the Great Hutch in the Sky since March.
    [thezip]: I can always tell when the dogs have been mousing, as there is a concentric ring of mud around the end of their snouts when they do.
    [thezip]: As for more physical evidence, that always seems to be missing somehow
    [Rabbi Bob]: We have a Jack Russell: off the leash she is a torpedo against mice, rats, chipmunks and squirrels
    [Rabbi Bob]: Doesn't eat them, just snaps, kills, drops and moves on.
    [thezip]: Efficient, that one.
