I'm very new to Haskell. I don't know if this is the right place to ask questions so bear with me. I'd like to install yesod (Ubuntu 12.04-64) via
cabal install yesod-platform yesod-bin --max-backjumps=-1 --reorder-goals (straight from yesod website)
Whenever I run this command, I get the following message:Resolving dependencies... Killed
and yesod doesn't get installed. What's happening? How can I solve this?
BTW, is yesod a good framework? What do you guys mostly prefer; snap or yesod or something else?
Thanks.submitted by threading

Here is an interesting article from 2001 on the 'power' of Lisp: http://www.paulgraham.com/avg.html
And a nice comparison article from 2009 on the 'power' of Haskell: http://newartisans.com/2009/03/hello-haskell-goodbye-lisp/
They are interesting to read as if written by the same programmer on a 20 year quest to find 'powerful' language(s).
It got me thinking about the breakdown of 'relative power' of the highest level languages in terms of criteria scored in these articles, like expressiveness, efficiency of code, ability to (easily) solve notoriously difficult or complex problems, etc. Is it fair to rank Haskell as the 'highest level power language' for 'high level' tasks, given that not all high level languages are equally powerful? Sorry for the vague circular logic here, but I'm just attempting to pass along the opinions of these articles with minimal interpretation.
I know that the answer depends on what you plan to do with the language. Let me remain vague by saying a general purpose language for 'very high level' tasks given modern environment and lessons learned.submitted by RaymondWies
