(*) Find the number of elements of a list.

myLength :: [a] -> Int myLength [] = 0 myLength (_:xs) = 1 + myLength xs myLength' :: [a] -> Int myLength' list = myLength_acc list 0 -- same, with accumulator where myLength_acc [] n = n myLength_acc (_:xs) n = myLength_acc xs (n + 1)

myLength' = foldl (\n _ -> n + 1) 0 myLength'' = foldr (\_ n -> n + 1) 0 myLength''' = foldr (\_ -> (+1)) 0 myLength'''' = foldr ((+) . (const 1)) 0 myLength''''' = foldr (const (+1)) 0

myLength' xs = snd $ last $ zip xs [1..] -- Just for fun myLength'' = snd . last . (flip zip [1..]) -- Because point-free is also fun myLength''' = fst . last . zip [1..] -- same, but easier

myLength = sum . map (\_->1)

length

Prelude

A fancier one! :-)

myLength = foldl (const . (+1)) 0
