I got a Haskell exam in a few days and doing the pastpaper of it. Since the anwer of it is not given it would be very helpful if anyone could check some of my answer which I am not sure about, and answer the questions which I have no idea...
Thank you very much
(a) What is a qualified type in Haskell?
Qualified type is a type which consist of more than one type. For instance, Integral a=> a-> a is a qualified type where Integral is type class whose element is int and Integer.
(b) What are the types of the following Haskell functions?
(i) one x y = x < y
(ii) two x y = x + y
(iii) three x y = xy
(iv) four x y = x + + y
(v) five x y = x ! ! y
An element of List. Eq. (not sure)
(vi) six x y = x = = y
(c) In the context of a functional programming language what is a homomorphism?
(a) Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of pure functional programming
languages as compared with other sorts of language.
Good programming practise.
Simpler and shorter code.
Strict Syntax. Need to specify type for each function.
It only deals with calculation problem.
