In May 2007, O'Reilly Media Inc. agreed to publish the book Real World Haskell that covers practical aspects of the functional programming language Haskell. The authors (Bryan O'Sullivan, Don Stewart, and John Goerzen) have kindly made pre-release versions of many chapters available on-line and are asking potential readers to comment on the current content.
Haskell is one of the world's most popular functional programming languages and this is one of the growing number of books in the mainstream press that cover practical aspects of functional programming. Other recent titles include OCaml for Scientists, Foundations of F# and Expert F# . The book F# for Scientists was also completed last week and should hit the shelves in the coming months.
