(named for the logician Haskell B. Curry). April 1990.
Designed by a committee from the functional programming community. A lazy purely functional language largely derived from Miranda. Static polymorphic typing, higher-order functions, user-defined algebraic data types, and pattern-matching list comprehensions. Innovations include a class system, operator overloading, functional I/O system, functional arrays, and separate compilation.

purely functional programming language. Computation proceeds by replacing expressions with their values. While all languages incorporate functions to some degree, HASKELL programs are composed solely of functions. It's based on Lambda calculus, hence the L used as a logo. The language is named for logician Haskell B. Curry, whose work provided much of the logical basis for the language.  Yale has been an integral part of the development and implementation of the HASKELL language since it's inception, Yale has helped write the HASKELL Report, Wrote a tutorial, and most recently Paul Hudak has published a textbook on using HASKELL, "The Haskell School of Expression".
Today, the focus of the Yale group is on putting HASKELL to work in the real world by : using HASKELL to construct a variety of DSL's (Domain-Specific Embedded Languages). The challenges include
1) the semantic underpinnings of DSL's,
2) building blocks for DSL construction,
3) Domain-specific analysis and transformation,
4)compiling DSL's,
5) deploying DSL technology.
