Functional programming

Tuesday, 20 March 2007 17:15
Lazy functional programming languages and the programmer's who think in terms of functions, compositions, and transformations.
with claims like formal provability, modularity, composability, and an apparent fallout of easier debugging and testing from compact side effect free code.

There are ways of doing functional programming using common programming languages that you might not originally consider; I've mentioned libraries for functional programming languages in Javascript/Perl/Python/etc pages on my site. "functions as first-class objects” and “eliminating side effects” don't happen automatically, some languages make it easier to implement than others. immutable and stateless programs require a different train of thought when attacking the problem.

Turing machine - infinite memory and finite instructions.
λ calculus - terms, abstraction, application, β-reduction.

laziness - compute values only when you need it
purity - pure functions that return results which are only dependent on the input and have no hidden state.
Functional programming promotes purity and concurrency.
F# functional programming language for .NET includes the .NET type language.
Erlang functional programming language designed for telecommunications messages sent across threads. (threads are well partitioned)
Haskell is a functional programming language with monads.
Monads in functional programming
F# - functional programming, object oriented, and imperative.
F# sources comes with, so you can see how the libraries are implemented.
Functional programming is more declarative in that we describe the problem and don't specify the computational setups.
Lisp is really the mother language, with base in mathematical functions.
Strongly and statically typed, but it has inferred types.
By default all types are immutable. Supports implementation inheritance, and has object expressions which allow you to instantiate
Computation expressions are like monads in haskell.

Apache CouchDB: The CouchDB Project - Apache CouchDB is a distributed, fault-tolerant and schema-free document-oriented database accessible via a RESTful HTTP/JSON API. Among other features, it provides robust, incremental replication with bi-directional conflict detection and resolution, and is queryable and indexable using a table-oriented view engine with JavaScript acting as the default view definition language.
