OT: Ruby Quiz in Haskell

Hello Ruby T.ers, some people are trying out the Ruby Q. puzzles in
Haskell and collecting the results here -
http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Haskell_Quiz . You might be
interested to see the differences and similarities between the Haskell
solutions and your own. There are only a few so far, but the list of
ones people have tried is growing.

Maybe lots of people try the quiz in lots of different languages (I know
I have) because they’re fun and usually very nicely balanced little
puzzles. It’s useful to try them out when you’re learning a language and
want to get to know libraries etc. They’re well suited for Haskell as
well because it, like Ruby, is excellent for exploratory programming and
quite a few of them involve searching etc.

So,thanks to J. E. G. and everyone else who puts ideas in! Keep those
Fridays coming!

I’m thrilled to hear that others are enjoying the quiz. The problems
are definitely applicable to all languages.

Send us your favorite Haskell problems, so we can try those too.

Neat :slight_smile: I started doing them in Common Lisp but then got sidetracked -
wonder if I still have that code anywhere.

Shoot, if Ed wants to write up an annotated solution in Forth, I’d
love to read that. :^)

I was actually writing up a couple of articles on doing the quiz
solutions in CL, but unfortunately got a little sidetracked. It would
definitely help a bit in the motivation department to know that people
are actually interested in seeing solutions in other languages =)
What other languages have folks tried these in?

Great! I just recently decided to have a look at Haskell - so having
some examples for which Ruby and Haskell solutions exist will
certainly help! :slight_smile:

Cheers,

Steph.

There is a writeup of the first quiz in Haskell here -

I’ve added a link to this in the Ruby Q. FAQ.

I’ve done a few in Io and my own little toy language.
