Support for operating on Barbie-types with constrained functions.

Consider the following function:

showIt ::`Show`

a =>`Maybe`

a ->`Const`

`String`

a showIt =`Const`

.`show`

We would then like to be able to do:

`bmap`

`showIt`

::`FunctorB`

b => b`Maybe`

-> b (`Const`

`String`

)

This however doesn't work because of the `(`

constraint in the
the type of `Show`

a)`showIt`

.

This module adds support to overcome this problem.

## Synopsis

- data Dict c a where
- requiringDict :: (c a => r) -> Dict c a -> r
- class FunctorB b => ConstraintsB (b :: (k -> *) -> *) where
- type AllB (c :: k -> Constraint) b :: Constraint
- baddDicts :: forall c f. AllB c b => b f -> b (Dict c `Product` f)

- class (ConstraintsB b, ProductB b) => ProductBC (b :: (k -> Type) -> Type) where
- type AllBF c f b = AllB (ClassF c f) b
- class c (f a) => ClassF c f a
- class c (f a) (g a) => ClassFG c f g a
- type ConstraintsOf c f b = AllBF c f b
- adjProof :: forall b c f. (ConstraintsB b, AllB c b) => b f -> b (Dict c `Product` f)
- type ProofB b = ProductBC b

# Instance dictionaries

is evidence that there exists an instance of `Dict`

c a`c a`

.

It is essentially equivalent to `Dict (c a)`

from the
constraints package,
but because of its kind, it allows us to define things like

.`Dict`

`Show`

requiringDict :: (c a => r) -> Dict c a -> r Source #

Turn a constrained-function into an unconstrained one that uses the packed instance dictionary instead.

# Retrieving dictionaries

class FunctorB b => ConstraintsB (b :: (k -> *) -> *) where Source #

Instances of this class provide means to talk about constraints,
both at compile-time, using `AllB`

, and at run-time, in the form
of `Dict`

, via `baddDicts`

.

A manual definition would look like this:

data T f = A (f`Int`

) (f`String`

) | B (f`Bool`

) (f`Int`

) instance`ConstraintsB`

T where type`AllB`

c T = (c`Int`

, c`String`

, c`Bool`

)`baddDicts`

t = case t of A x y -> A (`Pair`

`Dict`

x) (`Pair`

`Dict`

y) B z w -> B (`Pair`

`Dict`

z) (`Pair`

`Dict`

w)

Now if we given a `T f`

, we need to use the `Show`

instance of
their fields, we can use:

`baddDicts`

:: AllB Show b => b f -> b (`Dict`

`Show`

`Product`

b)

There is a default implementation of `ConstraintsB`

for
`Generic`

types, so in practice one will simply do:

derive instance`Generic`

(T f) instance`ConstraintsB`

T

Nothing

type AllB (c :: k -> Constraint) b :: Constraint Source #

baddDicts :: forall c f. AllB c b => b f -> b (Dict c `Product` f) Source #

baddDicts :: forall c f. (CanDeriveConstraintsB c b f, AllB c b) => b f -> b (Dict c `Product` f) Source #

## Instances

ConstraintsB (Proxy :: (k -> Type) -> Type) Source # | |

ConstraintsB (Void :: (k -> Type) -> Type) Source # | |

ConstraintsB (Unit :: (k -> Type) -> Type) Source # | |

ConstraintsB (Const a :: (k -> Type) -> Type) Source # | |

ConstraintsB b => ConstraintsB (Barbie b :: (k -> Type) -> Type) Source # | |

(ConstraintsB a, ConstraintsB b) => ConstraintsB (Sum a b :: (k -> Type) -> Type) Source # | |

(ConstraintsB a, ConstraintsB b) => ConstraintsB (Product a b :: (k -> Type) -> Type) Source # | |

(Functor f, ConstraintsB b) => ConstraintsB (Compose f b :: (k -> Type) -> Type) Source # | |

class (ConstraintsB b, ProductB b) => ProductBC (b :: (k -> Type) -> Type) where Source #

Every type `b`

that is an instance of both `ProductB`

and
`ConstraintsB`

can be made an instance of `ProductBC`

as well.

Intuitively, in addition to `buniq`

from `ProductB`

, one
can define `buniqC`

that takes into account constraints:

`buniq`

:: (forall a . f a) -> b f`buniqC`

::`AllB`

c b => (forall a . c a => f a) -> b f

For technical reasons, `buniqC`

is not currently provided
as a method of this class and is instead defined in terms
`bdicts`

, which is similar to `baddDicts`

but can produce the
instance dictionaries out-of-the-blue. `bdicts`

could also be
defined in terms of `buniqC`

, so they are essentially equivalent.

`bdicts`

:: forall c b .`AllB`

c b => b (`Dict`

c)`bdicts`

=`buniqC`

(`Dict`

@c)

There is a default implementation for `Generic`

types, so
instances can derived automatically.

Nothing

bdicts :: AllB c b => b (Dict c) Source #

bdicts :: (CanDeriveProductBC c b, AllB c b) => b (Dict c) Source #

class c (f a) => ClassF c f a Source #

`ClassF`

has one universal instance that makes

equivalent to `ClassF`

c f a`c (f a)`

. However, we have

`'ClassF c f :: k -> ``Constraint`

This is useful since it allows to define constraint-constructors like
`ClassF`

`Monoid`

`Maybe`

class c (f a) (g a) => ClassFG c f g a Source #

Like `ClassF`

but for binary relations.
