Hi Chris

Thanks for your hint.

I am reading this

http://www.amk.ca/python/writing/functional

Do you have good links or books to me learn "Functional Programming"?

but I am not asking "...because is easy but because is hard."

Show me, please! if you can.

Thanks is advance.

Best regards

macm
