I have a chain.

I can extend this chain indefinitely.

For beginners, this chain is hard to understand.

They call it magical, yet it is not in reality.

I used to only declare.

But with this chain, I can finally command.

[Maybe, this chain is made from Io.]

What am I and what is this chain?

Subtle Hint:

Though there is only one kind of the chain, it comes in various types. Three types are mentioned in the text.

Moderate Hint:

The chain can be so many things. It can be a writer, it can be a reader, it can be a parser, it can store states, and many other things.

Moderate Hint 2:

There is a sugar. The chain can be done.

Decisive Hint:

I am in seven letters. The chain is in five letters.

Decisive Hint 2:

I start with 'H'. The chain starts with 'M'.

Decisive Hint 3:

I end with 'l'. The chain ends with 'd'.

You are

The Haskell programming Language

And the chain is

A monad

  • $\begingroup$ Correct! I'd like you to explain each clues. $\endgroup$ – Dannyu NDos Oct 13 at 22:05

Is it

A program's compilation chain?

I'll add more details if this is correct....mainly due to actually having to study to do this.

For beginners, this chain is hard to understand.

it's a somewhat advanced concept

I used to only declare. But with this chain, I can finally command.

.

What you say can now be commmands to another process

.

[Maybe, this chain is made from Io.]

actually it is made from

I/O input and output

.

What am I and what is this chain?

.

You a process producing output, and the chain is a shell pipeline

Since It would declare earlier but can now command others

Is I a programmer and the chain is a programming language or a computer ?
