# The applicative-numbers package

Any applicative functor can be given numeric instances in a boilerplate way.
The *applicative-numbers* package provides an include file that makes it a
snap to define these instances.
See `Data.Numeric.Function` for an example.

Instances of `Num` classes for applicative functors. To be `#include`'d after
defining `APPLICATIVE` as the applicative functor name and `CONSTRAINTS` as a
list of constraints, which must carry its own trailing comma if non-empty.
The `APPLICATIVE` symbol gets `#undef`'d at the end of the include file, so
that multiple includes are convenient.

For instance,

#define INSTANCE_Ord #define INSTANCE_Enum #define APPLICATIVE Vec2 #include "ApplicativeNumeric-inc.hs" #define APPLICATIVE Vec3 #include "ApplicativeNumeric-inc.hs" #define APPLICATIVE Vec4 #include "ApplicativeNumeric-inc.hs"

You'll also have to import `pure` and `liftA2` from `Control.Applicative`
and specify `the FlexibleContexts` language extension (due to an implementation hack).

Some instances are generated only if a corresponding CPP symbol is
defined: `INSTANCE_Eq`, `INSTANCE_Ord`, `INSTANCE_Show`, `INSTANCE_Enum`
