Parse error on let

Reported by: erikd Owned by: erikd
Priority: blocker Milestone: 0.1.3
Component: Source Parser Version: 0.1.2

For the function:

fun x
 = do  let b () = x + 1
       x + b ()

ddc gives an error message "unexpected x" about the 'x' in the function's parameter list.

Unlike Haskell, Disciple doesn't need the 'let' and the above function should be written as:

fun x
 = do  b () = x + 1
       x + b ()

Obviously, the error message should be improved to point to the 'let'.

Discussion with Ben suggested we need to accept this usage of let to be compatible with Haskell so we can run code from the haskell test suite.
