software architecture and abstraction

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



Not always, and I was not thinking of that. Another classic example
is putting a series of points on a line, and asking people to classify
them as 'ranom', 'more uniform than random' and 'less uniform than
random'. Even statisticians tend to classify random points as 'less
uniform than random' and ones that are suitably more uniform as
'random'.


It isn't a requirement of entry to an MBA that you are as thick as
two short planks, and can't do mental arithmetic, you know!

Without investigating how people's guesses are distributed, I would
hate to say definitely what sort of averaging is best. The median
is never bad, of course, but that doesn't imply it is the best.

2. The gods of FP (was: software architecture and abstraction)


I have programmed in two FPs (HOPE and Lisp) .
I did FP in my final yr as an undergrad.

Even with all the above, I still consider my knowledge of FP to be
quite basic. Which begs the question :

If someone who has been exposed to the concepts of referential
transparency, Beta reduction, the Y combinator, standard and normal
order evaluation, the Church-Rosser theorem, the S/K/I combinators,
program transformation, lambda-lifting etc

has 'basic' knowledge, then what should the FP bods make of
someone whose summary of FP is :

: Functional programming is based upon lambda calculus,
: it is structured around procedural message passing,
