    OK, now I don't have a CS background and I fell into the C-family of languages (with a short stroll through Pascal and Basic at the start), so I'm a mainly OOP developer, and I come up a bit short on the rest of this stuff.

    Can anyone suggest examples of functionality that would be better written in F# than in C#?

    When would I want to use it?

    Statistical or analytical modeling and forecasting.


    OK. Why?

    Herbie


    because it's better to represent functional programs as mathmatical formulas.
