Currying != Generalized Partial Application?!I had mistakenly learned that curry was a form of generalized partial application from the paper : Function Currying in Scheme by Jeffrey A. Meunier In my paper I defined curry in Cat as: define curry : ('b ('A 'b > 'C) > ('A > 'C)) { swap quote swap compose }
Whereas this really should have been called "partialapply", "papply" or something comparable. define papply : ('b ('A 'b > 'C) > ('A > 'C)) { swap quote swap compose } define curry : (('A 'b > 'C) > ('b > ('A > 'C)) { quote [papply] compose } Has anyone else made this mistake? It seems to me that I have seen more incorrect definitions than correct ones. P.S. Anyone here interested in the health of Wikipedia (I've given up), I'd suggest fixing the code examples and "intuitively ..." note.
