Presuming you meant Fortress rather than Haskell there & onwards - Haskell's still going strong!.

dimension arithmetic


F# Units of Measure and various C++ libraries (one here, and the Boost one) provide dimensional analysis (which I can definitely see the benefit of, having done an amount of mission critical PID controller implementation), although strong numeric typing/newtypes (as provided by Ada and Haskell (and Go and Rust and many others), respectively) can help with keeping units straight.

Generally speaking: Software guys could learn a whole lot, and broaden their professional scope, from spending some time reading specifications and standards that never made it into the mainstream.


I agree with you - although a good number of the things I like from ML, Haskell and the like (none of which are dead) are starting to emerge in C# (for example - pattern matching, non-nullable references, first class tuples). Still no sum types...

Similarly, languages like Occam and Erlang have a lot to say about concurrency, distributed systems & the like.
Java, Basic, who cares - it's all a bunch of tree-hugging hippy cr*p
