Here's the information on the Haskell report. The only copies in
print right now are at Yale. We expect to be releasing a slightly
revised report with many small language cleanups soon. The only
Haskell compiler available right now is the Haskell-B system which
comes with lml. With some luck, we expect to release the Yale Haskell
compiler next week.



                                            The Haskell Report
                                                  Version 1.0
                                                  1 April 1990

The Haskell Committee, formed in September 1987 to design a "common"
non-strict purely functional language, has (finally) completed its work
and wishes to announce a Report about the language. Several preliminary
versions of the Report were released to get feedback, and many changes
have been incorporated since the first release in December '88. The
current release will remain STABLE for at least one year.

You may get the report via anonymous FTP:
from Yale: from Glasgow:
    ftp nebula.cs.yale.edu ftp cs.glasgow.ac.uk
    (or ftp
    login: anonymous login: guest

    type binary type binary
    cd pub/haskell-report cd <FP>haskell-report

    get report-1.0.dvi.Z get report-1.0.dvi.Z
    get report-1.0.ps.Z get report-1.0.ps.Z
    quit quit

The .tar file contains the source document in Unix tape archive
format; alternatively the .dvi or .ps files may be used for printing
only. All of the files are in compress format; to uncompress them
type "uncompress <filename>" at the Unix shell. The report is over
100 pages long and has been formatted for double-sided copying.
