I thought I'd try to do the Euler problems like Andrew is doing at a misdirected effort.
My solution for problem 1 in F#:
The way I'd do it in C#, however, is:let multiple x = if x % 3 = 0 || x % 5 = 0 then x else 0
let sequenceOfNumbers n = [1 .. n]
let euler1 numbers =
|> Seq.map multiple
printf "Result = %i" (euler1 (sequenceOfNumbers 999))
static int Euler1(int maxValue)
var sum = 0;
for (var i = 1; i <= maxValue; i++
if (i % 3 == 0 || i % 5 == 0)
sum += i;
Is there really all that much difference? Could I have expressed it in F# in a more functional way? I don't know. Hopefully I can change the way I think about functional programming as I move through the problems.
