category-extras: A meta-package documenting various packages inspired by category theory

[ bsd3, comonads, control, library, monads ] [ Propose Tags ]

The obsolete category-extras package provided a monolithic set of modules designed for the use of category theory in Haskell. It was exploded into more focused, self-contained packages (listed in the dependencies below); this meta-package documents where the code has gone. In addition to the core definitions, the original category-extras library included several concrete data types as instances of the core concepts. These are now available from the following packages:

There are two overviews below. The first is a quick, dependency-order graphical overview of packages. The second is a more detailed (but very incomplete -- help me complete it!) overview mapping each module in the old package into its new location in the new hierarchy. Not all modules have exact analogs; where possible, similar alternatives are listed.
