comment Read and writing to file in Haskell
Will Ness: while that's a valid answer to OP's question, my answer's about using a single handle for read and write, so I don't see the relevance.

I'm not sure, but would configuring GSA to use my keyword/URL mapping as entities do what I want?

comment The most general type of "product" of two functions in Haskell
Given automap :: (a -> a) -> [a] -> [a], an analog of map with a -> a instead of a-> b, then automap . iterate won't compile as a -> a can't unify with x -> [x], the type of iterate f for any function f.

comment The most general type of "product" of two functions in Haskell
Vucicasena: Sorry about the confustion. I mentioned r ~ b -> b earlier when discussing the type of iterate in map . iterate, and it still holds at the end. As for your second question, the difference between a -> a and a -> b is that the latter matches any function, while the former only matches automorphisms, that is, functions from a type a to itself.
