comment Formal name for left/right-hand-side of an expression
I don't think there is a standardised word. If you need to describe this type of situation, a definition using a name of your choice (chunk,term,part) preceding an usage would suffice, I imagine.

comment Formal name for left/right-hand-side of an expression
in which language would "int x = y = 5" work? I would assume the use of parentheses would clarify evaluation order and hence, LHS and RHS. itu.dk/courses/BPRD/E2009/fundamental-1967.pdf is about as authorative as it comes...

comment implement cons function in Java - type safety question
'(Function2<List<T>,T,List<T>>) cons()' is the only syntactically correct type params I can give...and it still gives me an unchecked error. nice one anyway, java wins ;)

comment implement cons function in Java - type safety question
I already tried giving the emptylist a type, but no luck there. Here is the error without the cast: (EmptyList, EmptyList<T> seems to make no difference) Cannot resolve method 'foldl(Function2<List<java.lang.Object>,java.lang.Object, List<java.lang.Object>>, EmptyList, List<T>)' I am starting to assume this has something to do with the fact I am using closures for my cons function?

comment implement cons function in Java - type safety question
I have two versions of foldl, one with the accumulator as a T, and one with the accumulator as a List<T>, so it isn't so much 'hard coded'. The function passed to the foldl takes a T, List<T> , cons takes a T, List<T> and reverse returns a List<T> ? The cast does work...
