Darcs, another innovative use of Haskell

[Courtesy of Malcolm Wallace]

Here is a link to 'darcs', the source-code revision control system
written in Haskell, that I mentioned earlier tonight. It is based on a
'theory' of patches, giving it many superior features over other more
well-established RCS systems. When Linus Torvalds recently decided to
move away from using BitKeeper as the RCS system for the Linux kernel,
darcs was one of the contenders he considered to replace it (although in
the end, Torvalds decided to write his own system). -- Malcolm
