In the past months I have written a series of blog posts on functional programming with a particular (but by no means exclusive) focus on the Raku programming language. If you're curious about functional programming, I think this series might be a good if maybe somewhat challenging and idiosyncratic introduction. It starts with the very basics but covers some more advanced concepts further on.
The suggested reading order would be:
@meisam But my purpose was to explain functional programming, the use of Raku is incidental.
@wim_v12e I gave it a try. The language is really interesting. Although I see how to call the C functions from Raku, I couldn’t figure out how to call Raku from C (how to compile Raku into an object file and link it to another C code).
@wim_v12e Thanks! Will keep an eye on this project. 👀
@wim_v12e Now I am interested! Will definitely give it a try and report my benchmarks back 😁
