Overview of Haxe functional programming snippets and tutorials.
Jan 23, 2018 Functional Programming / Enums as GADTs
As already established Haxe enums are a form of algebraic data types. In fact, they may even serve as so called generalized algebraic data types - GADTs for short. While for an ordinary enum every constructor yields the same type, with an GADT each constructor may yield a different type.

ML-like languages are great for creating interpreters or compilers, by virtue of Algebraic Data Types. Haxe's enum allow for writing similarly elegant code.
