# ghc-typelits-natnormalise: GHC typechecker plugin for types of kind GHC.TypeLits.Nat

A type checker plugin for GHC that can solve *equalities* of types of kind
`Nat`

, where these types are either:

Type-level naturals

Type variables

Applications of the arithmetic expressions

`(+,-,*,^)`

.

It solves these equalities by normalising them to *sort-of* `SOP`

(Sum-of-Products) form, and then perform a simple syntactic equality.

For example, this solver can prove the equality between:

(x + 2)^(y + 2)

and

4*x*(2 + x)^y + 4*(2 + x)^y + (2 + x)^y*x^2

Because the latter is actually the `SOP`

normal form of the former.

To use the plugin, add the

OPTIONS_GHC -fplugin GHC.TypeLits.Normalise

Pragma to the header of your file.
