The ListLike package

[Tags:bsd3, library, test]

Generic support for list-like structures in Haskell.

The ListLike module provides a common interface to the various Haskell types that are list-like. Predefined interfaces include standard Haskell lists, Arrays, ByteStrings, and lazy ByteStrings. Custom types can easily be made ListLike instances as well.

ListLike also provides for String-like types, such as String and ByteString, for types that support input and output, and for types that can handle infinite lists.

Build Status


The ListLike package provides typeclasses and instances to allow polymorphism over many common datatypes.


The package can be built/installed with Cabal. If you have cabal-install, simply run "cabal install ListLike" to install the package. Without cabal-install, execute the following commands:

$ runghc Setup.hs configure $ runghc Setup.hs build $ runghc Setup.hs install
