Prelude: A Prelude module replacement

[ bsd3, library, prelude ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides a Prelude module drop-in replacement for base's Prelude module.

Goals of this package include:

Versioning and Usage

This package is intended to be used in combination with base-noprelude and possibly base-orphans. Prelude strives to be faithful to the PVP; however, for technical reasons Prelude's API is not fully determined by its version due to changes in core typeclasses and consequently it's strongly advised to declare a dependency on Prelude always in conjunction with a dependency on base-noprelude.

For instance, all you need to do in order to use this package if you were previously depending on base via

    base (>= && < 4.11) || ^>=

is to replace base by base-noprelude and also add a dependency on Prelude like so

    Prelude ^>=
  , base-noprelude (>= && < 4.11) || ^>=

and this will effectively replace the implicit Prelude module.

Alternatively, if you only intend to support GHC 7.10 and newer, you can make use mixins like so

    Prelude ^>=
  , base (>= && < 4.12) || ^>=

mixins: base hiding (Prelude)
