An interesting comp.lang.functional thread:
I'm looking for an empirical study of the use of list comprehension
The goal is to answer "list comprehension is only sugar, is it worth
Notation is important. Without sugar life can be very bitter... But is this specific notation useful? Seems to me that it is, but this is not based on any empirical study, of course.
Even is you like comprehensions, it may be fruitful to consider ways to make comprehensions easier, or more powerful. For example, adding support for parallel list comprehensions.
