I have just begun my journey in Haskell-land and like other newcomers I’m trying to make myself at home…
When I saw the $ operator in Haskell I immediately wanted an operator where the two operands have switched places. Why? Because the order in the following expression feels very wrong to me as a long-time Ruby user.
takeWhile (<64) $ map (^2) [1..]
Here’s the & operator:
(&) = flip ($)
It’s used like this:
[1..] & map (^2) & takeWhile (<64)
Much more like home!
Yes, this is quite silly indeed.
