In computer science, typeful programming, also known as type directed programming, is a programming style identified by widespread use of type information handled through mechanical typechecking techniques.[1] The concept was introduced in a paper of the same name by Luca Cardelli in 1991.[1]

The Haskell programming language is said to be typeful.[1]
