Lazy Evaluation

Let's discuss the evaluation strategy of Haskell, called lazy evaluation.

Evaluation order and termination

Previously, we saw that the order of evaluation does not influence the result of expressions. This changes, however, when non-termination comes into play.

As an example, let’s revisit once more our function both, the reimplementation of the conjunctive boolean && operator:
