type :~> f a = MaybeLens f aSource

Lens type for situations in which the accessor functions can fail. This is useful, for example, when accessing fields in datatypes with multiple constructors.

lens :: (f -> Maybe a) -> (a -> f -> Maybe f) -> f :~> aSource

Create a lens that can fail from a getter and a setter that can themselves potentially fail.

get :: (f :~> a) -> f -> Maybe aSource

Getter for a lens that can fail. When the field to which the lens points
is not accessible the getter returns `Nothing`

.

set :: (f :~> a) -> a -> f -> Maybe fSource

Setter for a lens that can fail. When the field to which the lens points
is not accessible this function returns `Nothing`

.

set' :: (f :~> a) -> a -> f -> fSource

Like `set`

but return behaves like the identity function when the field
could not be set.

modify :: (f :~> a) -> (a -> a) -> f -> Maybe fSource

Modifier for a lens that can fail. When the field to which the lens points
is not accessible this function returns `Nothing`

.
