So I’m writing a Haskell book!

I’ve been sitting on this for a while, so I’m very excited to announce that Don Stewart, John Goerzen and I are collaborating on an upcoming book for O’Reilly, the working title of which is “Real-World Haskell”. Better yet, O’Reilly has agreed to publish the title under a Creative Commons license!

You can find more details, and follow our progress, over at the web site we’ve set up.

    1) Hooray.
    2) About freaking time someone wrote a real-world type of Haskell book.
    3) Write faster please.
    4) Yes, from the description on its blog, I really will buy it.

    Hello, Bryan.

    I’ve just subscribed to the “real world haskell book” comments, and found that the links it sends are broken.
    From today’s mail:

    On 2009-10-17, Denis commented on “Exercises”:
    This is much better:
    intersperse x l = tail (foldl joiner [] l)
    where joiner y z = y ++ (x : z)
    To see this comment in context or to respond, visit

    If one tries to follow any of the link he gets error:
    Not Found

    The requested URL /read/deftypes.html was not found on this server.

    I haven’t found any e-mail on the (though it should be there 😉 ), so i found you through the google.

    I do not know if this is the best place to say but I liked so much the website that I bought the book!
