Thank you very much.  I just read a half of this paper and I noted it is
a very interesting introductory way to get in touch with FP.

Although it helped me with some concepts (nth-order functions, lazy
evaluation), I'm still looking for some example about how to
architecture big programs in a functional programming language.

Anyway, I'll read more (not only this paper, but other famous references
as well) and try to get some examples from the open source world.

Thank you very much again!
