XiX (XForms in XQuery)

I’m pondering implementing the computational parts of the XForms Model in XQuery. Doing so in a largely functional environment poses some challenges, though. Has anybody tackled this before? How about in any functional language, including ML, Haskell, Scheme, XSLT, or careful Python?

I borrowed the book Purely Functional Data Structures from a friend–this looks to be a good start. What else is out there? Comment below. -m

    Hello, I’m quite into the functional languages and to me, my _absolute_ favourite is Haskell, and the second most worthy would probably be OCaml but I’m not quite sure on their XML libs/bindings. Concerning Haskell, the online repository of libraries and bindings can be found here: http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/pkg-list.html

    A good blogroll concerning haskell is:
    http://planet.haskell.org/

    A few good books are:
    1) Programming in Haskell ISBN: 0-521-87172-7
    2) Real World Haskell : http://book.realworldhaskell.org/

    Feel free to come in the IRC room on Freenode.org and ask away!! We’re always glad to help. :)
