gentoo-haskell ebuild

December 25, 2007

I just got done with another semester of college. It was tougher than usual since I had 6 classes. With the little time that I have had, I’ve been intently trying to learn Haskell, which is nothing like I have seen before, since it is purely functional, unlike all the other imperative languages I’m used to. It seems promising, but will probably take a while to fully grasp it. In trying to learn the languages, I’ve thought about making libmpd-haskell work with xmonad to play and stop music with a button. Midway through, someone changed something some feature in xmonad, and it stopped working anymore. Rather than try to fix this in a language I don’t know, I made a nice ebuild for gentoo instead.
