PPrinter: A generic derivable Haskell pretty printer

[ bsd3, generics, library, pretty-printer, text ] [ Propose Tags ]

A library that supports deriving of pretty printing functions on data types.

The interfaces of pretty printer used are based on that introduced in the paper: Philip Wadler, A Prettier Printer, The Fun of Programming, Cornerstones of Computing (2003): 223-243. original paper

The form of generic feature used is based on that introduced in the paper: Magalhaes, et al., A Generic Deriving Mechanism for Haskell, 3'rd ACM Symposium on Haskell, pp. 37-48, September 2010, http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/1863523.1863529. The necessary information of implementation of GHC.Generics is described here: https://hackage.haskell.org/package/base-

The implementation of deriving part of API is based on that designed in the library: GenericPretty, the details are introduced here: https://hackage.haskell.org/package/GenericPretty
