Book Description

This book provides a practical approach to understanding implementations of non-strict functional languages using lazy graph reduction. It is intended to be a source of practical laboratory work material and to help students to develop, modify and experiment with their own implementations.

The emphasis lies on the building of working prototypes of several functional language implementations and in each case the approach is to give a complete working prototype of a particular implementation, then lead the reader through a sequence of improvements to expand its scope. The prototypes are expressed in the functional language Miranda and software is available in machine-readable form.

  • Functional Programming in Scheme (Kurt Normark)

    This is a book about functional programming in Scheme, which is a pragmatic choice of programming language in the functional programming paradigm, with unique flexibility due to the membership of the Lisp family of languages.

  • Purely Functional Data Structures (Chris Okasaki)

    This book describes data structures from the point of view of functional languages, with examples, and presents design techniques that allow programmers to develop their own functional data structures. All source code is given in Standard ML and Haskell.

  • Object-Oriented vs. Functional Programming (R. Warburton)

    This book discusses similarities between these programming paradigms and points out that both FP and OOP are actually moving closer toward one another. One prominent example is the use of lambda expressions in Java and other OOP languages.
