A few people sent me mail saying they didn't receive the message about
the Haskell tutorial that Joe Fasel and I wrote.  That's probably
because it was buried in the following message announcing Haskell 1.2.
Please note that also buried in this announcement is the availability
of an emacs-based on-line companion to the tutorial which leads the
user through every example in the tutorial (and more), encourages the
user to execute and modify the examples, etc.  It runs under Yale
Haskell, a nice, robust implementation of Haskell that I've used
successfully in several courses now.

Subject: Haskell report 1.2 now available


                          The Haskell Report
                            Version  1.2
                            1 March 1992

The Haskell Committee, formed in September 1987 to design a "common"
non-strict purely functional language, has released an updated version
of the Haskell Report.

Version 1.2 of the report was prepared for publication in SIGPLAN
Notices in the May 1992 issue.  It corrects some typographical errors
in the 1.1 report, and clarifies the presentation in places, sometimes
by giving new examples.  A few small changes have also been made to
the syntax and standard prelude.

In addition to the new report, a Haskell tutorial by Paul Hudak and
Joe Fasel is also now available.  This will also be published in the
May issue of ACM SIGPLAN Notices as a companion to the report.


Both the new report and the tutorial are available via anonymous
internet ftp.  Three Haskell ftp sites have been established:

        nebula.cs.yale.edu     (
        ftp.dcs.glasgow.ac.uk  (
        animal.cs.chalmers.se  (

Each of these sites has an area devoted to Haskell-related material in
pub/haskell.  The file pub/haskell/FILES_ORG contains a complete list
of the available material.  The report can be found in:

        pub/haskell/report/report-1.2.dvi.Z  -- A compressed dvi file
        pub/haskell/report/report-1.2.ps.Z   -- A compressed postscript file

The tutorial can be found in:

        pub/haskell/tutorial/tutorial.ps.Z   -- A compressed postscript file
                                                (No dvi version available)

An online supplement to the tutorial for users of Yale haskell is also
available -- look in pub/haskell/tutorial/README for more information.

These sites also contain current Haskell implementations, papers related
to Haskell, the Gofer system, and archives of the Haskell mailing list.


The report is also available from Yale as a technical report; however,
we recomend waiting for the SIGPLAN publication instead.  To get a
hardcopy version of the report, send $10 to:

        The Haskell Project
        Department of Computer Science
        Yale University
        Box 2158 Yale Station
        New Haven, CT 06520 USA


A mailing list for general discussions about Haskell is reachable in
one of two ways:


To be added to the above mailing list, or to enquire about the
availability of Haskell implementations, send mail to either
Please do not post administrative requests direct to the mailing list.
