  Gofer 
 
    A  {lazy}  {functional  language}  designed  by  Mark 
  Jones    at  the  {Programming  Research  Group}, 
  Oxford,  UK  in  1991.  It  is  very  similar  to  {Haskell}  1.2.  It 
  has  {lazy  evaluation},  {higher  order  function}s,  {pattern 
  matching},  and  {type  class}es,  lambda,  case,  conditional  and 
  let  expressions,  and  wild  card,  as"  and  {irrefutable 
  patterns}.  It  lacks  {modules},  {arrays}  and  standard 
  {classes}. 
 
  Gofer  comes  with  an  {interpreter}  (in  C),  a  {compiler}  which 
  compiles  to  {C},  documentation  and  examples.  Unix  Version 
  2.30  (1994-06-10)  Mac_Gofer  version  0.16  beta.  Ported  to 
  {Sun},  {Acorn}  {Archimedes},  {IBM  PC},  {Macintosh},  {Atari}, 
  {Amiga}. 
 
  Version  2.30  added  support  for  contexts  in  datatype  and  member 
  function  definitions,  Haskell  style  {arrays},  an  external 
  function  calling  mechanism  for  gofc,  an  experimental 
  implementation  of  Launchbury/Peyton  Jones  style  lazy 
  functional  state  threads,  an  experimental  implementation  of 
  do"  notation  for  {monad  comprehensions}. 
 
  Latest  version:  {HUGS}.
