wc in haskell

Implementing the Unix "wc" in Haskell: a series of approaches, starting from the simple'n'slow and getting faster and hairier.

An interesting study, but those times are so small that the variation between programs could just be scheduling delays. (And their faster implementations load the entire file into memory, which wc likely doesn't do.)
