[Haskell-cafe] newbie question how to pass data

First of all, your function
func (x,y) s dg =((x*(cos dg) - y*(sin dg)),(x*(sin dg) - y*(cos dg)))
does NOT work for type (Float -> Float), unless you mean that that is
the type of the unused parameter s. Also, your desired type ((Float ->
Float) -> Bool) itself looks suspicious. It must accept any function
(without something to apply it to) and arbitrarily return True or False.
How will you decide which? I suspect you need another parameter for this
Second, on the off chance you are trying to calculate the position on a
circle scaled then rotated an angle dg from (x,y), that new position is
f (x,y) s dg = (s*(x*(cos dg) - y*(sin dg)),s*(x*(sin dg) + y*(cos dg)))
in which case you are missing the s and the last minus sign in your
formula should be a plus sign.
If so, this can be evaluated with greater clarity (and probably
accuracy) in polar coordinates:
g (x,y) s dg = (r * cos a, r * sin a)
where r = s * sqrt (x^2 + y^2)
a = atan2 y x + dg
Third, if you did not need the scale, I would use an underscore to make
h (x,y) _ dg = (r * cos a, r * sin a)
where r = sqrt (x^2 + y^2)
a = atan2 y x + dg
That's all the observations I can make unless you describe the problem
more clearly. Sorry.
