Hello,

What is the best way to define a function that takes a list of words and returns a single piece of text made up the words with a space between each?

You probably want the fold operation i.e.

foldr (\acc s -> acc ++ " " ++ s)  "" ["1","2","3","4"]

Open in new window


produces "1 2 3 4 " as its output

Yes, it works.

can I do the same thing with this function?

 
concatos :: [[a]] -> [a]
concatos [] = []
concatos (x:t) = x ++ concatos t

Open in new window

How about:

concatos (x:t) = x ++ " " ++ concatos t

I tried it before and it didn't compile, but I found my mistake and it's compile now.
Type should be: concatos :: [[Char]] -> String

Gotcha, I hadn't included the function definition in my test otherwise I might have picked up this error also.

Glad it's fixed.
