    So, for example, how would I get either versions of this to run with the script method? Would be nice to see ghc or ghci versions.
  • [Newcomer] Status of AI, graphics programming and performance in Haskell?

    Hi u/Target_Organic, I wich you a warm welcome! Haskell is often very satisfying to work with, it has a sense of beauty in it. Regarding your questions: 1. I never had big problems about performance. However, I personally place more emphasis about correctness, simplicity and readability of my programs. Performance tuning comes after. 2. For graphic libraries, I know diagrams, Reanimate and Haskell-chart. Since you seems interested by mathematical approach to graphics, I think you will find happiness there. 3. I'm not sure about the AI field. Other, more practical languages such as Python seems to have taken the lead. What is sure for me, that Machine Learning/NN would be nicely describe in Haskell with solid foundations.

    I believe the answer lies somewhere in here https://github.com/diagrams/diagrams-lib/blob/b7357d6d9d56f80f6c06a185514600c31d53c944/src/Diagrams/Backend/CmdLine.hs. I probably have to wrap the `Diagrams` type somehow and implement `Parseable` for it, but i am not sure how exactly
