    Maybe purely functional languages don’t exist.

    The reason why Haskell is pure, even though you can still do things with it, is well-documented. However you are very right that if thinking about that doesn’t help you, then don’t do it! Mental models cannot be proscribed.

      I’m writing a response to this post right now. It’s longer so I’ll put it into my blog.

      The last one I did send here ended up being merged on without a bump-up on the original post. I guess the same happens now and the thread will be buried 4 pages down the board before I’m ready to send it.

      But I guess I’ll send it in anyway.
