withFile variant which takes a ByteString?

haskell-cafe - Sat, 07/05/2014 - 4:52pm
Hi all, Is there a variant of withFile which takes a ByteString? (I'm aware that I could use the lower-level System.Posix FD-based functions, but if someone already has a package out there, I'd rather not.) Regards,

Looking for a Haskell teacher in the NYC area

Haskell on Reddit - Sat, 07/05/2014 - 4:05pm

I'd like to find a tutor to help me get up to speed in Haskell. Willing to pay for a few lessons. If you can help, please PM me. If you know of other places where I should ask this question, that would also be appreciated.

PRDC2014 Call for Fast Abstracts / Industry Track Papers / Posters Singapore Nov.18-21,2014 http://prdc.dependability.org/PRDC2014/index.html --------------------------------- Call for Fast Abstracts http://prdc.dependability.org/PRDC2014/cffa.html --------------------------------- Fast Abstracts at PRDC are short oral presentations, either on new ideas or work in progress, or opinion pieces that can address any issue relevant to dependable systems and networks. Because they are brief and have a later deadline, Fast Abstracts enable their authors to: .Summarise work that is not yet complete .Put forward novel or challenging ideas .State positions on controversial issues .Suggest new approaches to the solution of open problems Thus, they provide an excellent opportunity to introduce new work, or present radical opinions, and receive early feedback from the community. Contributions are particularly solicited from industrial practitioners and academics that may not have been able to prepare full papers du

HART 2014 - deadline extended

General haskell list - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 3:11pm
We extended the deadline until 12th July. ========================================= CALL FOR PAPERS Second Workshop on Haskell And Rewriting Techniques (HART 2014) http://www.program-transformation.org/HART14/ To be held on September 5, co-located with ICFP 2014, the Haskell Symposium, etc., in Gothenburg. Haskell is an advanced purely-functional programming language. Pure functional programming is programming with equations, often defined by pattern-matching. Rewriting is the science of replacing equals by equals and thus a very powerful method for dealing with equations, often constructor-based. There are strong connections between Haskell (or generally, pure functional) programming and rewriting. The purpose of the HART workshop is to foster those connections. In addition to an invited talk by Oleg Kiselyov, we plan a half day of discussions, in an informal setting, on how Haskell (and related languages) and rewriting techniques and theories can cross-fert

Final Call for Papers: OCL 2014 Submissions Due in OneWeek

General haskell list - Thu, 07/03/2014 - 4:15pm
(Apologies for duplicates) CALL FOR PAPERS 14th International Workshop on OCL and Textual Modeling Applications and Case Studies (OCL 2014) Co-located with ACM/IEEE 17th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems (MODELS 2014) September 28-30 (tbc), 2014, VALENCIA, SPAIN http://www.software.imdea.org/OCL2014/ Modeling started out with UML and its precursors as a graphical notation. Such visual representations enable direct intuitive capturing of reality, but some of their features are difficult to formalize and lack the level of precision required to create complete and unambiguous specifications. Limitations of the graphical notations encouraged the development of text-based modeling languages that either integrate with or replace graphical notations for modeling. Typical examples of such languages are OCL, textual MOF, Epsilon, and Alloy. Textual modeling languages have thei

New gtk2hs 0.12.4 release

gtk2hs - Wed, 11/21/2012 - 12:56pm

Thanks to John Lato and Duncan Coutts for the latest bugfix release! The latest packages should be buildable on GHC 7.6, and the cairo package should behave a bit nicer in ghci on Windows. Thanks to all!
