Sekiso's Functions

Sekiso said, "Pure functions exist beyond time and space. The results we achieve will be achieved always." Ummon held up his fan and replied "If you yourself do not exist beyond time and space, then how can you be so sure? Functions only have meaning when the hardware is running, and when it is not, there is space, but no time." The master overhearing replied, "Last Tuesday I typed "cabal install cabal-install" and nothing happened."

  1. Declarative languages allow one to state what they want to happen without explaining how to make it happen. One assumes the machine knows better.
