Haskell:

    serveAs "said" $ hasIndex $ \x -> "click me" `linksTo` (text ("You said " ++ x))

It looks like it is using a hypothetical web library.

Certainly would be interesting to see it implemented.

could you explain that code a bit? Which framework are you using?

This time, some real code in Haskell:

------

said = standardQuery "What's your name?" (p_T (do { text_S "Hi there! What's your name?" ; activate greeting textInputField empty }))

greeting :: String -> CGI ()

greeting name = standardQuery "Hello" (do { text_S "Hello " ; text name ; text_S ". This is my first interactive CGI program!" })

But... Where is the form? I just don't understand.

It looks like the \x does the form. O_o That would be weird.

The last part looks pretty lispy.

Does this mean Haskell wins against Arc? :p

I apologize; `hasIndex` is a confusing name -- I was thinking of the `ISINDEX` html tag (it creates an html form with a single input field).

The idea is that `hasIndex f` creates a page that prompts for a string, then (after the page is submitted) calls the function f with the input string as parameter and shows the resulting page.

By the way, \ is just the Haskell syntax for lambda -- hey, whaddayaknow, it's one character shorter than `fn` :-)

Hm,, interesting idea, though hasIndex can be written in Arc to simplify their code.

But I like Haskell. :-) Interesting, how long will be explicit declaration of form.

BTW, this is your imagination or you are using something real and this can be used just now for web programming?

Brilliance!
