foldl-1.0.0: Composable, streaming, and efficient left folds

Control.Foldl

Contents

Description

This module provides efficient and streaming left folds that you can combine using `Applicative` style.

Import this module qualified to avoid clashing with the Prelude:

````>>> ````import qualified Control.Foldl as L
``````

Use `fold` to apply a `Fold` to a list:

````>>> ````L.fold L.sum [1..100]
```5050
```

`Fold`s are `Applicative`s, so you can combine them using `Applicative` combinators:

````>>> ````import Control.Applicative
````>>> ````let average = (/) <\$> L.sum <*> L.genericLength
``````

These combined folds will still traverse the list only once, streaming efficiently over the list in constant space without space leaks:

````>>> ````L.fold average [1..10000000]
```5000000.5
`>>> ````L.fold ((,) <\$> L.minimum <*> L.maximum) [1..10000000]
```(Just 1,Just 10000000)
```

You can also unpack the `Fold` type if you want to extract the individual components of combined folds for use with your own customized folding utilities:

``` case ((/) <\$> L.sum <*> L.genericLength) of
L.Foldl step begin done -> ...
```

Synopsis

# Fold Types

data Fold a b Source

Efficient representation of a left fold that preserves the fold's step function, initial accumulator, and extraction function

This allows the `Applicative` instance to assemble derived folds that traverse the container only once

Constructors

 forall x . Fold (x -> a -> x) x (x -> b)

Instances

 Functor (Fold a) Applicative (Fold a)

fold :: Fold a b -> [a] -> bSource

Apply a strict left `Fold` to a list and extract the final result

data FoldM m a b Source

Like `Fold`, but monadic

Constructors

 forall x . FoldM (x -> a -> m x) (m x) (x -> m b)

Instances

 Monad m => Functor (FoldM m a) Monad m => Applicative (FoldM m a)

foldM :: Monad m => FoldM m a b -> [a] -> m bSource

Like `fold`, but monadic

# Folds

mconcat :: Monoid a => Fold a aSource

Fold all values within a container using `mappend` and `mempty`

foldMap :: Monoid w => (a -> w) -> (w -> b) -> Fold a bSource

Convert a "`foldMap`" to a `Fold`

head :: Fold a (Maybe a)Source

Get the first element of a container or return `Nothing` if the container is empty

last :: Fold a (Maybe a)Source

Get the last element of a container or return `Nothing` if the container is empty

Returns `True` if the container is empty, `False` otherwise

Return the length of the container

Returns `True` if all elements are `True`, `False` otherwise

Returns `True` if any element is `True`, `False` otherwise

all :: (a -> Bool) -> Fold a BoolSource

`(all predicate)` returns `True` if all elements satisfy the predicate, `False` otherwise

any :: (a -> Bool) -> Fold a BoolSource

`(any predicate)` returns `True` is any element satisfies the predicate, `False` otherwise

sum :: Num a => Fold a aSource

Computes the sum of all elements

product :: Num a => Fold a aSource

Computes the product all elements

maximum :: Ord a => Fold a (Maybe a)Source

Computes the maximum element

minimum :: Ord a => Fold a (Maybe a)Source

Computes the minimum element

elem :: Eq a => a -> Fold a BoolSource

`(elem a)` returns `True` if the container has an element equal to `a`, `False` otherwise

notElem :: Eq a => a -> Fold a BoolSource

`(notElem a)` returns `False` if the container has an element equal to `a`, `True` otherwise

find :: (a -> Bool) -> Fold a (Maybe a)Source

`(find predicate)` returns the first element that satisfies the predicate or `Nothing` if no element satisfies the predicate

index :: Int -> Fold a (Maybe a)Source

`(index n)` returns the `n`th element of the container, or `Nothing` if the container has an insufficient number of elements

elemIndex :: Eq a => a -> Fold a (Maybe Int)Source

`(elemIndex a)` returns the index of the first element that equals `a`, or `Nothing` if no element matches

findIndex :: (a -> Bool) -> Fold a (Maybe Int)Source

`(findIndex predicate)` returns the index of the first element that satisfies the predicate, or `Nothing` if no element satisfies the predicate

# Generic Folds

genericLength :: Num b => Fold a bSource

Like `length`, except with a more general `Num` return value

genericIndex :: Integral i => i -> Fold a (Maybe a)Source

Like `index`, except with a more general `Integral` argument
