This can be imagined as a moment in the timeline -- of a lazy state thread. Forcing the token forces all delayed actions in -- the thread up until that moment to be performed. data State s = S# (State# s) {- Note [Lazy ST and multithreading] We used to imagine that passing a polymorphic state token was all that we needed to keep state threads separate (see Launchbury and Peyton Jones, 1994: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/publication/lazy-functional-state-threads/). But this breaks down in the face of concurrency (see #11760). Whereas a strict ST computation runs to completion before producing anything, a value produced by running a lazy ST computation may contain a thunk that, when forced, will lead to further stateful computations. If such a thunk is entered by more than one thread, then they may both read from and write to the same references and arrays, interfering with each other. To work around this, any time we lazily suspend execution of a lazy ST computation, we bind the result pair to a NOINLINE binding (ensuring that it is not duplicated) and calculate that pair using (unsafePerformIO . evaluate), ensuring that only one thread will enter the thunk. We still use lifted state tokens to actually drive execution, so in these cases we effectively deal with *two* state tokens: the lifted one we get from the previous computation, and the unlifted one we pull out of thin air. -} {- Note [Lazy ST: not producing lazy pairs] The fixST and strictToLazyST functions used to construct functions that produced lazy pairs. Why don't we need that laziness? The ST type is kept abstract, so no one outside this module can ever get their hands on a (result, State s) pair. We ourselves never match on such pairs when performing ST computations unless we also force one of their components. So no one should be able to detect the change. By refraining from producing such thunks (which reference delayed ST computations), we avoid having to ask whether we have to wrap them up with unsafePerformIO. See Note [Lazy ST and multithreading]. -} -- | This is a terrible hack to prevent a thunk from being entered twice. -- Simon Peyton Jones would very much like to be rid of it. noDup :: a -> a noDup a = runRW# (\s -> case noDuplicate# s of _ -> a) -- | @since 2.01 instance Functor (ST s) where fmap f m = ST $ \ s -> let -- See Note [Lazy ST and multithreading] {-# NOINLINE res #-} res = noDup (unST m s) (r,new_s) = res in (f r,new_s) x <$ m = ST $ \ s -> let {-# NOINLINE s' #-} -- See Note [Lazy ST and multithreading] s' = noDup (snd (unST m s)) in (x, s') -- | @since 2.01 instance Applicative (ST s) where pure a = ST $ \ s -> (a,s) fm <*> xm = ST $ \ s -> let {-# NOINLINE res1 #-} !res1 = unST fm s !(f, s') = res1 {-# NOINLINE res2 #-} -- See Note [Lazy ST and multithreading] res2 = noDup (unST xm s') (x, s'') = res2 in (f x, s'') -- Why can we use a strict binding for res1?
