Eddie is an attempt to design a pure functional programming language that is accessible to a large audience. It is the philosophical marriage of C# and Haskell. It takes the best parts of Haskell: lazy evaluation and immutability, while echewing the parts that make it most difficult to use: ML derived syntax and Hindley-Milner type inference. It uses a C# derived syntax and borrows heavily the C# design idiom of making user intent explicit.
Implicit concepts in Haskell, such as currying and the types of functions, are made explict in Eddie. Simiarly, other concepts that are explicit in Haskell, like Monad comprehensions, are made implict in Eddie.
