At the moment, I mainly just want to explore functional programming to look at a different way to approaching problems. I may then want to go into it more deeply, but not committing to that at the moment.
From what's been said, I think I'll work through the Scheme tutorial that Taylor linked to. I may then take a look at Haskell - been thinking of learning it for the project in the degree I'm doing with the Open University
at present (perhaps a comparison between concurrency in Haskell and Java). I think it's the Perl stuff that I'd be more likely to go into deeply, though.
