These are Haskell translations of Ninety Nine Lisp Problems.

If you want to work on one of these, put your name in the block so we know someone's working on it. Then, change n in your block to the appropriate problem number, and fill in the <Problem description>,<example in lisp>,<example in Haskell>,<solution in haskell> and <description of implementation> fields.

1 Binary trees

The type of binary trees:

data Tree a = Empty | Branch a (Tree a) (Tree a)
        deriving (Show, Eq)

An example tree:

tree1 = Branch 1 (Branch 2 Empty (Branch 4 Empty Empty))
                 (Branch 2 Empty Empty)

2 Problem 61

Count the leaves of a binary tree

A leaf is a node with no successors. Write a predicate count_leaves/2 to count them.

Example:
% count_leaves(T,N) :- the binary tree T has N leaves

Example in Haskell:
> count_leaves tree1
2

Solution:

count_leaves  Empty                 = 0
count_leaves (Branch a Empty Empty) = 1
count_leaves (Branch a left  right) = count_leaves left + count_leaves right

3 Problem 61A

Collect the leaves of a binary tree in a list

A leaf is a node with no successors. Write a predicate leaves/2 to collect them in a list.

Example:
% leaves(T,S) :- S is the list of all leaves of the binary tree T

Example in Haskell:
> leaves tree1
[4, 2]

Solution:

leaves :: Tree a -> [a]
leaves  Empty                 = []
leaves (Branch a Empty Empty) = [a]
leaves (Branch a left  right) = leaves left ++ leaves right

7 Problem 64

Given a binary tree as the usual Prolog term t(X,L,R) (or nil). As a preparation for drawing the tree, a layout algorithm is required to determine the position of each node in a rectangular grid. Several layout methods are conceivable, one of them uses a layout strategy in which the position of a node v is obtained by the following two rules:

  • x(v) is equal to the position of the node v in the inorder sequence
  • y(v) is equal to the depth of the node v in the tree

Write a function to annotate each node of the tree with a position, where (1,1) in the top left corner or the rectangle bounding the drawn tree.

Here is an example tree for this problem and the following two:

tree2 = Branch 'n'
                (Branch 'k'
                        (Branch 'c'
                                (Branch 'a' Empty Empty)
                                (Branch 'h'
                                        (Branch 'g'
                                                (Branch 'e' Empty Empty)
                                                Empty
                                        )
                                        Empty
                                )
                        )
                        (Branch 'm' Empty Empty)
                )
                (Branch 'u'
                        (Branch 'p'
                                Empty
                                (Branch 's'
                                        (Branch 'q' Empty Empty)
                                        Empty
                                )
                        )
                        Empty
                )

Solution:

type Pos = (Int, Int)
 
layout :: Tree a -> Tree (a, Pos)
layout t = fst (layoutAux 1 1 t)
  where layoutAux x y Empty = (Empty, x)
        layoutAux x y (Branch a l r) = (Branch (a, (x',y)) l' r', x'')
          where (l', x')  = layoutAux x (y+1) l
                (r', x'') = layoutAux (x'+1) (y+1) r

The auxiliary function is passed the x-coordinate for the left-most node of the subtree, the y-coordinate for the root of the subtree, and the subtree itself. It returns the subtree annotated with positions, plus the count of Branch nodes in the subtree.
