If you add performance comparison too, it would be really good. My guess - Go would blow others off.


I didn't do performance comparison this time because I don't think it matters much for this task, and because the vast majority of the running time for all three is waiting on the network (and because the time to start the interpreter or load shared libraries and stuff would probably account for a big part of the difference). Though it's true, I did try out the half-complete version and Go was the fastest (but the difference between it and Haskell was really small). I could pick out something performance sensitive next time?
