In the 1980s, a committee was formed to create a standardized functional programming language with lazy evaluation.
Haskell is, as of 2002, the functional language on which the most research is being performed.
Its biggest deviation from Haskell is in the use of Uniqueness types for input as opposed to Monads.

 Introduction - HaskellWiki
The language is named for Haskell Brooks Curry, whose work in mathematical logic serves as a foundation for functional languages.
This contrasts strongly with programs in conventional languages like C, which consist essentially of a carefully-specified sequence of assignments, or Java, in which the ordering of method calls is crucial to the meaning of a program.
The language in which the engineers describe their design is functional, and it uses lazy evaluation extensively to avoid recomputing parts of the design which are not currently visible on the screen.

 Rationale for O'Haskell   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Programming with explicit synchronization operations seems to require a major rethink in O'Haskell, a topic which is illustrated on the O'Haskell programming examples page.
The monadic approach is predominantly associated with Haskell and its imperative I/O system [20], but the technique is by no means limited to this language or to a particular evaluation strategy [21, 22], not even to languages that exclusively belong to the functional category [23].
Likewise, in object-oriented programming the addition of a new data-producer (a new class) is a cinch, while the introduction of another data-consumer means the extension of an record type with a new selector, a global undertaking with implications to potentially all existing classes.

During the process of implementing a system supporting the Haskell language [HJW+92], we found that considerable advances in productivity and reliability can be obtained by building specialised little tools catering for specific language-related problems.
``Haskell is a general-purpose, purely functional programming language exhibiting many of the recent innovations in functional (as well as other) programming language research, including higher order functions, lazy evaluation, static polymorphic typing, user-defined data types, pattern matching and list comprehensions.
Haskell has a number of characteristics, such as the layout rule and the definable precedence and associativity of operators that made the use of a hand-crafted scanner preferable.

The language implemented was called "MIRANDA" and introduced a formalism called "currying" (named after the theoretician Haskell B. Curry): A function of n arguments may be treated as a concatenation of n single-argument functions.
Haskell, on the other hand, supports modular programming by requiring the definition of clean interfaces between modules and of abstract data types.
Haskell has objects, classes, multiple inheritance, and all other OOP features except one, of course: Haskell objects don't have internal "states," because this would contradict the referential transparency of FP.

 Beginning with the Haskell Programming Language
One of the most common programming habits in imperative programming is to assign a variable one value, then assign it a different value; perhaps along the way we test whether the variable has obtained certain key values.
In Haskell, by contrast, evaluation is lazy--expressions are only evaluated when, and as much, as they need to be (in fairness, C does include shortcutting of Boolean expressions which is a minor kind of laziness).
This is partly due to the concise syntax of Haskell, but a greater reason is because of the emphasis in functional programming of breaking down problems into their component parts (rather than just sort of "doing what needs to be done" at each point in an imperative program).
