Cryptographic hashes (or one-way hash functions) allow us to compute a digest that uniquely identifies a resource. If we make a small change anywhere in a resource, its digest also changes—drastically, because of the .
I'd been aware of functional programming and Haskell in particular for some time, but my attempts to learn it had been less than successful. The problem wasn’t lack of.
However, after we met our deadlines, we took some time to reconsider our.
