Today I’ve worked through the first two chapters of http://www.ocaml-tutorial.org/
For now I’m really impressed esp. with the quality of this tutorial. It’s logically structured and also helps people who come from procedural and object oriented languages like C or Java with enough references to understand the (at least for me unusual) functional concepts behind Objective CAML.
Let’s see what tomorrow might bring :-)
It’s like a phobia for me. A few years ago I had to write some progs in Lisp and Prolog and really started to hate Prolog simply because I couldn’t get used to this way of programming. Lisp was a little bit better but not much.
Next semester I will have to make another course focusing on Prolog which will perhaps change this phobia. As an addition to this I also want to give OCaml a try simply because the whole idea of mixing functional and oo languages sounds very interesting :-)
