In F# it is necessary to use the rec keyword. In Haskell there is no need to explicitly tell if a given function is recursive or not. Given the role of recursion in functional programming, the F# ...
What are/would be the characterists and applications of a programming paradigm where functions can't have statements?
Suppose there is a language where, instead of statements, functions could only be defined in relation to other functions and operators such as partial application and composition. What would be the ...
