We’ll continue working on the problem of how to analyze packets of network data. Last month we saw how to use the open source WireShark utility to capture network data in XML format, and we used F#’s language features and System.XML to map the data into a stream of F# records. This month we’ll enhance the F# data structures and develop some algorithms for discovering patterns.

About F# SIG
The Cleveland F# Programmers Special Interest Group (F# SIG) is for programmers who work in and/or are interested in learning the F# language. F# is Microsoft's entry in the fast-growing world of functional programming. Compared to other programming languages F# code is often simpler and more intuitive, yet like any language it takes some time and practice to learn F#. The F# SIG gives programmers at all skill levels a monthly opportunity to learn about the language and how others are using it, improve their skills and share their knowledge in a relaxed, cooperative environment . The group meetings consist of mini-presentations by members, group programming exercises, and informal discussions. The audience ranges from F# experts to those developers that are getting their first glimpse of F#.
