Not, to start a functional language war, but I'm curious as to some
recommendations from this group as to whether I should learn Haskel or
OCAML first as a functional language given that my interest is
learning how such languages influence compiler design, in particular
how higher order functions and pattern matching make building
compilers easier.

The point is before I add "built-in" visitor and attribute support to
Yacc++, I think I should understand the features and benefits of
functional languages, so that I can include them in Yacc++'s semantic

Adivce is appreciated,
