Open unions (typeindexed coproducts) for extensible effects All operations are constanttime, and there is no Typeable constraint
This is a variation of OpenUion5.hs, which relies on overlapping instances instead of closed type families. Closed type families have their problems: overlapping instances can resolve even for unground types, but closed type families are subject to a strict apartness condition.
This implementation is very similar to OpenUnion1.hs, but without the annoying Typeable constraint. We sort of emulate it:
Our list r of open union components is a small Universe. Therefore, we can use the Typeablelike evidence in that universe. We hence can define
data Union r v where Union :: t v > TRep t r > Union r v  t is existential
where
data TRep t r where T0 :: TRep t (t ': r) TS :: TRep t r > TRep (any ': r)
Then Member is a type class that produces TRep Taken literally it doesn't seem much better than OpenUinion41.hs. However, we can cheat and use the index of the type t in the list r as the TRep. (We will need UnsafeCoerce then).
The interface is the same as of other OpenUnion*.hs

Documentation
data Union (r :: [* > *]) v Source #
The data constructors of Union are not exported
Strong Sum (Existential with the evidence) is an open union t is can be a GADT and hence not necessarily a Functor. Int is the index of t in the list r; that is, the index of t in the universe r
pattern U0' :: Member t r => t v > Union r v Source #
Pattern synonym to project the union onto the effect t
.
decomp :: Union (t ': r) v > Either (Union r v) (t v) Source #
Orthogonal decomposition of the union: head and the rest.
pattern U0 :: t v > Union (t ': r) v Source #
Some helpful pattern synonyms. U0 : the first element of the union
pattern U1 :: forall (t :: Type > Type) (r :: [Type > Type]) v. Union r v > Union (t ': r) v Source #
U1 : everything excluding the first element of the union.
class FindElem t r => Member (t :: * > *) r Source #
Typeclass that asserts that effect t
is contained inside the effectlist
r
.
The FindElem
typeclass is an implementation detail and not required for
using the effect list or implementing custom effects.
Instances
FindElem t r => Member t r Source #  
t ~ s => Member t (s ': ([] :: [Type > Type])) Source #  Explicit typelevel equality condition is a dirty
hack to eliminate the type annotation in the trivial case,
such as There is no ambiguity when finding instances for
The only case we have to concerned about is 
class Member t r => SetMember (tag :: k > * > *) (t :: * > *) r  tag r > t Source #
This class is used for emulating monad transformers
