Thanks. I'll take a look at it. I also need to take a look at the basic
Haskell syntax. An interesting-looking web page which discusses monads is:
What struck me was this bit of code:
assemblyLine w = (return w) >>= makeChopsticks >>= polishChopsticks >>= wrapChopsticks
Interestingly, this looks like Forth (!), where you put a value on the
stack, and successive operations fiddle with the stack as a series of
transformations. Not that I know Forth, you understand. Hmm, so Haskell
can be a concatenative language if you want it to be.
