Origami Programming

Abstract:

One style of functional programming is based purely on recursive equations. Such equations are easy to explain, and adequate for any computational purpose, but hard to use well as programs get bigger and more complicated. In a sense, recursive equations are the `assembly language' of functional programming, and direct recursion the goto. As computer scientists discovered in the 1960s with structured programming, it is better to identify common patterns of use of such too-powerful too...
