    Is there a fast native compiler for Haskell? The
    numbers I saw (from the shootout) made Haskell
    look so much slower than ocaml that I really
    didn't see the point.

    • I've only really played with hugs [haskell.org], so I'm not totally sure. You might wish to have a look at the implementations page [haskell.org].

      I've not played with OCaml at all, I just liked what I saw in Haskell.

      -Dom

      • ocaml rocks, but the standard library kind of
        sucks, and the compiler is QPL-ed, which totally
        sucks.

        Also, dynamic linking is kind of half-assed, and
        isn't even implemented unless you're running Red
        Hat / Debian / etc..

        A good ocaml intro is Rich Jones's tutorial:
