# Documentation

module Data.List

# String operations

lower :: String -> String Source #

Convert a string to lower case.

lower "This is A TEST" == "this is a test" lower "" == ""

upper :: String -> String Source #

Convert a string to upper case.

upper "This is A TEST" == "THIS IS A TEST" upper "" == ""

word1 :: String -> (String, String) Source #

Split the first word off a string. Useful for when starting to parse the beginning of a string, but you want to accurately preserve whitespace in the rest of the string.

word1 "" == ("", "") word1 "keyword rest of string" == ("keyword","rest of string") word1 " keyword\n rest of string" == ("keyword","rest of string") \s -> fst (word1 s) == concat (take 1 $ words s) \s -> words (snd $ word1 s) == drop 1 (words s)

line1 :: String -> (String, String) Source #

Split the first line off a string.

line1 "" == ("", "") line1 "test" == ("test","") line1 "test\n" == ("test","") line1 "test\nrest" == ("test","rest") line1 "test\nrest\nmore" == ("test","rest\nmore")

escapeHTML :: String -> String Source #

Escape a string such that it can be inserted into an HTML document or `"`

attribute
without any special interpretation. This requires escaping the `<`

, `>`

, `&`

and `"`

characters.
Note that it will escape `"`

and `'`

even though that is not required in an HTML body (but is not harmful).

escapeHTML "this is a test" == "this is a test" escapeHTML "<b>\"g&t\"</n>" == "<b>"g&t"</n>" escapeHTML "t'was another test" == "t'was another test"

escapeJSON :: String -> String Source #

Escape a string so it can form part of a JSON literal.
This requires escaping the special whitespace and control characters. Additionally,
Note that it does *not* add quote characters around the string.

escapeJSON "this is a test" == "this is a test" escapeJSON "\ttab\nnewline\\" == "\\ttab\\nnewline\\\\" escapeJSON "\ESC[0mHello" == "\\u001b[0mHello"

unescapeHTML :: String -> String Source #

Invert of `escapeHTML`

(does not do general HTML unescaping)

\xs -> unescapeHTML (escapeHTML xs) == xs

unescapeJSON :: String -> String Source #

General JSON unescaping, inversion of `escapeJSON`

and all other JSON escapes.

\xs -> unescapeJSON (escapeJSON xs) == xs

# Splitting

dropEnd :: Int -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Drop a number of elements from the end of the list.

dropEnd 3 "hello" == "he" dropEnd 5 "bye" == "" dropEnd (-1) "bye" == "bye" \i xs -> dropEnd i xs `isPrefixOf` xs \i xs -> length (dropEnd i xs) == max 0 (length xs - max 0 i) \i -> take 3 (dropEnd 5 [i..]) == take 3 [i..]

takeEnd :: Int -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Take a number of elements from the end of the list.

takeEnd 3 "hello" == "llo" takeEnd 5 "bye" == "bye" takeEnd (-1) "bye" == "" \i xs -> takeEnd i xs `isSuffixOf` xs \i xs -> length (takeEnd i xs) == min (max 0 i) (length xs)

splitAtEnd :: Int -> [a] -> ([a], [a]) Source #

returns a split where the second element tries to
contain `splitAtEnd`

n xs`n`

elements.

splitAtEnd 3 "hello" == ("he","llo") splitAtEnd 3 "he" == ("", "he") \i xs -> uncurry (++) (splitAt i xs) == xs \i xs -> splitAtEnd i xs == (dropEnd i xs, takeEnd i xs)

breakEnd :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> ([a], [a]) Source #

Break, but from the end.

breakEnd isLower "youRE" == ("you","RE") breakEnd isLower "youre" == ("youre","") breakEnd isLower "YOURE" == ("","YOURE") \f xs -> breakEnd (not . f) xs == spanEnd f xs

spanEnd :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> ([a], [a]) Source #

Span, but from the end.

spanEnd isUpper "youRE" == ("you","RE") spanEnd (not . isSpace) "x y z" == ("x y ","z") \f xs -> uncurry (++) (spanEnd f xs) == xs \f xs -> spanEnd f xs == swap (both reverse (span f (reverse xs)))

dropWhileEnd' :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

A version of `dropWhileEnd`

but with different strictness properties.
The function `dropWhileEnd`

can be used on an infinite list and tests the property
on each character. In contrast, `dropWhileEnd'`

is strict in the spine of the list
but only tests the trailing suffix.
This version usually outperforms `dropWhileEnd`

if the list is short or the test is expensive.
Note the tests below cover both the prime and non-prime variants.

dropWhileEnd isSpace "ab cde " == "ab cde" dropWhileEnd' isSpace "ab cde " == "ab cde" last (dropWhileEnd even [undefined,3]) == undefined last (dropWhileEnd' even [undefined,3]) == 3 head (dropWhileEnd even (3:undefined)) == 3 head (dropWhileEnd' even (3:undefined)) == undefined

takeWhileEnd :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

A version of `takeWhile`

operating from the end.

takeWhileEnd even [2,3,4,6] == [4,6]

stripSuffix :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> Maybe [a] Source #

Return the prefix of the second list if its suffix matches the entire first list.

Examples:

stripSuffix "bar" "foobar" == Just "foo" stripSuffix "" "baz" == Just "baz" stripSuffix "foo" "quux" == Nothing

stripInfix :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> Maybe ([a], [a]) Source #

Return the the string before and after the search string,
or `Nothing`

if the search string is not present.

Examples:

stripInfix "::" "a::b::c" == Just ("a", "b::c") stripInfix "/" "foobar" == Nothing

stripInfixEnd :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> Maybe ([a], [a]) Source #

Similar to `stripInfix`

, but searches from the end of the
string.

stripInfixEnd "::" "a::b::c" == Just ("a::b", "c")

dropPrefix :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Drops the given prefix from a list. It returns the original sequence if the sequence doesn't start with the given prefix.

dropPrefix "Mr. " "Mr. Men" == "Men" dropPrefix "Mr. " "Dr. Men" == "Dr. Men"

dropSuffix :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Drops the given suffix from a list. It returns the original sequence if the sequence doesn't end with the given suffix.

dropSuffix "!" "Hello World!" == "Hello World" dropSuffix "!" "Hello World!!" == "Hello World!" dropSuffix "!" "Hello World." == "Hello World."

wordsBy :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

A variant of `words`

with a custom test. In particular,
adjacent separators are discarded, as are leading or trailing separators.

wordsBy (== ':') "::xyz:abc::123::" == ["xyz","abc","123"] \s -> wordsBy isSpace s == words s

linesBy :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

A variant of `lines`

with a custom test. In particular,
if there is a trailing separator it will be discarded.

linesBy (== ':') "::xyz:abc::123::" == ["","","xyz","abc","","123",""] \s -> linesBy (== '\n') s == lines s linesBy (== ';') "my;list;here;" == ["my","list","here"]

breakOn :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> ([a], [a]) Source #

Find the first instance of `needle`

in `haystack`

.
The first element of the returned tuple
is the prefix of `haystack`

before `needle`

is matched. The second
is the remainder of `haystack`

, starting with the match.
If you want the remainder *without* the match, use `stripInfix`

.

breakOn "::" "a::b::c" == ("a", "::b::c") breakOn "/" "foobar" == ("foobar", "") \needle haystack -> let (prefix,match) = breakOn needle haystack in prefix ++ match == haystack

breakOnEnd :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> ([a], [a]) Source #

Similar to `breakOn`

, but searches from the end of the
string.

The first element of the returned tuple is the prefix of `haystack`

up to and including the last match of `needle`

. The second is the
remainder of `haystack`

, following the match.

breakOnEnd "::" "a::b::c" == ("a::b::", "c")

splitOn :: (Partial, Eq a) => [a] -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

Break a list into pieces separated by the first list argument, consuming the delimiter. An empty delimiter is invalid, and will cause an error to be raised.

splitOn "\r\n" "a\r\nb\r\nd\r\ne" == ["a","b","d","e"] splitOn "aaa" "aaaXaaaXaaaXaaa" == ["","X","X","X",""] splitOn "x" "x" == ["",""] splitOn "x" "" == [""] \s x -> s /= "" ==> intercalate s (splitOn s x) == x \c x -> splitOn [c] x == split (==c) x

split :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

Splits a list into components delimited by separators, where the predicate returns True for a separator element. The resulting components do not contain the separators. Two adjacent separators result in an empty component in the output.

split (== 'a') "aabbaca" == ["","","bb","c",""] split (== 'a') "" == [""] split (== ':') "::xyz:abc::123::" == ["","","xyz","abc","","123","",""] split (== ',') "my,list,here" == ["my","list","here"]

chunksOf :: Partial => Int -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

Split a list into chunks of a given size. The last chunk may contain fewer than n elements. The chunk size must be positive.

chunksOf 3 "my test" == ["my ","tes","t"] chunksOf 3 "mytest" == ["myt","est"] chunksOf 8 "" == [] chunksOf 0 "test" == undefined

# Basics

list :: b -> (a -> [a] -> b) -> [a] -> b Source #

Non-recursive transform over a list, like `maybe`

.

list 1 (\v _ -> v - 2) [5,6,7] == 3 list 1 (\v _ -> v - 2) [] == 1 \nil cons xs -> maybe nil (uncurry cons) (uncons xs) == list nil cons xs

cons :: a -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Append an element to the start of a list, an alias for '(:)'.

cons 't' "est" == "test" \x xs -> uncons (cons x xs) == Just (x,xs)

snoc :: [a] -> a -> [a] Source #

Append an element to the end of a list, takes *O(n)* time.

snoc "tes" 't' == "test" \xs x -> unsnoc (snoc xs x) == Just (xs,x)

Equivalent to `drop 1`

, but likely to be faster and a single lexeme.

drop1 "" == "" drop1 "test" == "est" \xs -> drop 1 xs == drop1 xs

mconcatMap :: Monoid b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> b Source #

# List operations

groupSortOn :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

groupSortBy :: (a -> a -> Ordering) -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

nubOrd :: Ord a => [a] -> [a] Source #

*O(n log n)*. The `nubOrd`

function removes duplicate elements from a list.
In particular, it keeps only the first occurrence of each element.
Unlike the standard `nub`

operator, this version requires an `Ord`

instance
and consequently runs asymptotically faster.

nubOrd "this is a test" == "this ae" nubOrd (take 4 ("this" ++ undefined)) == "this" \xs -> nubOrd xs == nub xs

nubOrdBy :: (a -> a -> Ordering) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

A version of `nubOrd`

with a custom predicate.

nubOrdBy (compare `on` length) ["a","test","of","this"] == ["a","test","of"]

nubOrdOn :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

A version of `nubOrd`

which operates on a portion of the value.

nubOrdOn length ["a","test","of","this"] == ["a","test","of"]

groupOn :: Eq b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

A version of `group`

where the equality is done on some extracted value.

nubSort :: Ord a => [a] -> [a] Source #

*O(n log n)*. The `nubSort`

function sorts and removes duplicate elements from a list.
In particular, it keeps only the first occurrence of each element.

nubSort "this is a test" == " aehist" \xs -> nubSort xs == nub (sort xs)

nubSortBy :: (a -> a -> Ordering) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

A version of `nubSort`

with a custom predicate.

nubSortBy (compare `on` length) ["a","test","of","this"] == ["a","of","test"]

nubSortOn :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

A version of `nubSort`

which operates on a portion of the value.

nubSortOn length ["a","test","of","this"] == ["a","of","test"]

maximumOn :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> a Source #

A version of `maximum`

where the comparison is done on some extracted value.

minimumOn :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> a Source #

A version of `minimum`

where the comparison is done on some extracted value.

disjoint :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> Bool Source #

Are two lists disjoint, with no elements in common.

disjoint [1,2,3] [4,5] == True disjoint [1,2,3] [4,1] == False

allSame :: Eq a => [a] -> Bool Source #

Are all elements the same.

allSame [1,1,2] == False allSame [1,1,1] == True allSame [1] == True allSame [] == True allSame (1:1:2:undefined) == False \xs -> allSame xs == (length (nub xs) <= 1)

anySame :: Eq a => [a] -> Bool Source #

Is there any element which occurs more than once.

anySame [1,1,2] == True anySame [1,2,3] == False anySame (1:2:1:undefined) == True anySame [] == False \xs -> anySame xs == (length (nub xs) < length xs)

repeatedly :: ([a] -> (b, [a])) -> [a] -> [b] Source #

Apply some operation repeatedly, producing an element of output and the remainder of the list.

\xs -> repeatedly (splitAt 3) xs == chunksOf 3 xs \xs -> repeatedly word1 (trim xs) == words xs \xs -> repeatedly line1 xs == lines xs

for :: [a] -> (a -> b) -> [b] Source #

Deprecated: Use flip map directly, since this function clashes with Data.Traversable.for

*DEPRECATED* Use `flip map`

directly, since this function clashes with `Data.Traversable.for`

.

Flipped version of `map`

.

firstJust :: (a -> Maybe b) -> [a] -> Maybe b Source #

Find the first element of a list for which the operation returns `Just`

, along
with the result of the operation. Like `find`

but useful where the function also
computes some expensive information that can be reused. Particular useful
when the function is monadic, see `firstJustM`

.

firstJust id [Nothing,Just 3] == Just 3 firstJust id [Nothing,Nothing] == Nothing

concatUnzip :: [([a], [b])] -> ([a], [b]) Source #

zipFrom :: (Partial, Enum a) => a -> [b] -> [(a, b)] Source #

`zip`

against an enumeration.
Never truncates the output - raises an error if the enumeration runs out.

\i xs -> zip [i..] xs == zipFrom i xs zipFrom False [1..3] == undefined

zipWithFrom :: (Partial, Enum a) => (a -> b -> c) -> a -> [b] -> [c] Source #

`zipFrom`

generalised to any combining operation.
Never truncates the output - raises an error if the enumeration runs out.

\i xs -> zipWithFrom (,) i xs == zipFrom i xs

replace :: (Partial, Eq a) => [a] -> [a] -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Replace a subsequence everywhere it occurs. The first argument must not be the empty list.

replace "el" "_" "Hello Bella" == "H_lo B_la" replace "el" "e" "Hello" == "Helo" replace "" "e" "Hello" == undefined \xs ys -> not (null xs) ==> replace xs xs ys == ys
