hmm, me too. most people interested in Haskell,
however, are more interested in the experiments they
can do with a language. Eclipse is great (the greatest
thing about it is the opensource platform), but those
poeple think too much with pen and paper, I suppose,
so they are happy with emacs.

I am mostly an amateur Java programmer so I know
precisely what you mean. I feel that people who use
Java are not specially fond of the language but
basically the tools for it.

wow. no actually I don't know much, just exploring.
for one, I don't understand the plug-in API, I
downloaded the code for EclipseFP to learn it ;)
yes I would like to undertake the quest (of course),
so is it Okay if I keep posting annoying questions
about how to actually do it?
for example, CVS confuses me and I don't think I have
permission to submit changes (I shouldn't be allowed
right now, right?) so how exactly do I submit patches
and where does it get integrated?
just tell me which webpages to look at.
thanks in advance,
