Status: Enthusiastic Haskell newbie.

Main Interests:

  • Using Haskell to write triposcopic mathematical algorithms in tiny amounts of code.
  • Using Haskell to do seriously compute-bounded work in a multiprocessor setup.

Current Projects:

  • Haskell to Java compiler.
  • Interactive Haskell step-line debugger.
  • Program to convert my custom markup to HTML and LaTeX.

Projects On Hold:

  • Sorting algorithm benchmarks.
  • Audio DSP in Haskell.
  • Haskell implementation of compression algorithms.
  • Haskell SDL for POV-Ray.

Failed Projects:

  • Haskell fractal generator.
  • Haskell ray tracer.
  • Haskell program to cause world peace.

Current Unsolved Questions:

  • Why do Haskell extensions exist?
  • How do you do graphics in Haskell?
  • Why does Hugs crash so much?
  • How come (e.g.) Smalltalk provides 27 different types of collection, but Haskell only ever involves single-linked lists and binary trees?
  • Is
    putStr xs1; putStr xs2
    faster or slower than
    putStr (xs1 ++ xs2)
    ?
