Hello everyone, im starting on computer science the coming summer. I checked our classes schedule and we start of by Functional Programming in SML. I download the book we gonna use but I cant make sense of it.
I guess my question is what do you use 1.Functinal programming for, 2. how do you use it, 3. can you make programs/Apps in it like you can in C++ or 4. is it pure teoratical stuff??
5. How does MatLab differe from SML, or 6. are they completely 2 different tools that got nothing to do with each other.. I hope a friendly soul can help me out :)
