    cpkg is now live on Hackage. It is a good deal less polished than I'd originally wanted, but it already gives impressive results (among them cross-compiling XMonad).

  • There Are Two Monadic Zygomorphisms

    Here I would like to present benchmarks associated with my past post comparing different methods of summing the first \( n \) numbers. In each case, we benchmarked sum(200), that is, \( \sum_{i=1}^{200} i \).
