Nothing to do with the language per se, I just don't really like how functional programming "feels", if that makes sense. I guess it's the result of years of indoctination with procedural programming. Or maybe I'm just getting old.
is that because Functional programming feels like real math and less objecty?? but is largely more composable if the problem is broken down properly.
BTW, SQL is largely a functional language. as well as xslt. for that matter most query languages.
It has been said that those that learn functional programming become better procedural programmers, namely because they become better in breaking up the problem in more composable patterns.,
