- Gregory Benison on applying FP techniques for "real world" problems using C: I would like to present an example from my work in protein biochemistry where ideas from functional programming - namely lazy evaluation and immutable data - were important in approaching a "real world" problem. The program I want to discuss is implemented in C and I believe this to be a good example of how ideas from FP can be useful in almost any language.
