Credits

Under the hood, uses:

  • hint for type inference;
  • hoogle to get a list of candidate functions;
  • hint for testing.

Hoogle calling facility has been copy-pasted (and later modified) from the Yi project.

Todo

  • catch stack overflows (is that possible?)
  • catch other errors (should do but doesn't for some reason)
