[edit] 1 What is an 'IDIOM'?

Hitchhikers guide to haskell and programming guidelines don't really seem like idioms, can someone give a definition of what an idiom is? --Neil Mitchell 13:46, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] 2 Strangely alphabetized listings

Why is "Hitchhikers guide" listed under "p"?

The links were incorrectly added on the hgt Haskell page as [[Category:Idioms |power tools]]. This was wrong in that instead of creating a link it added the page to the category under the 'p'. The correct way to do that is [[:Category:Idioms |power tools]]. (My oops:) BrettGiles 19:06, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] 3 How to add to a category

How does one add an item to the Idioms section? "Edit this page" does not show the current text of the page, and there is no "add a new page" link either.

Briefly, add the link [[Category:Idioms]] somewhere on your target page. You may want to review the general wiki editing help page. BrettGiles 19:07, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] 4 Non-idioms

Some of these pages are not really idioms per se. Some are "clever little programs" that may or may not illustrate idioms. Should we have a separate category for these? What should it be called? —Ashley Y 20:48, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I think we need a new category, Category: Code, Category: Fun or Category: Examples perhaps. dons 03:06, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

How about we follow Scheme here, and have a Cookbook category? Similar to this . dons 02:28, 4 August 2006 (UTC)
