While I share your fascination with functional programming, I can't help getting the feeling like I'm watching an episode of MacGyver. You know, like how he takes a swiss army knife and uses it in all these bizarre ways that it was never designed for in order to save the day.

I guess I should add that I get a similar feeling looking at OO Perl code. Maybe I'm just an ol' fuddy duddy, but for functional stuff, I'll stick to the other Camel.

I'm not just knocking what you are posting. I do think that it's important to push and stretch a langauge to it's limits. It just gives me kind of an oogee feeling watching you do it. It seems so clean and clear in a functional language, and so ugly and warped in Perl.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
