Instances

 Source # Methods HumanParse e a => HumanParse e (Maybe a) Source # We parse Maybe a by first attempting to parse a and wrap it in Just. If that fails but the input is only whitespace, then we accept the as Nothing. If there is some non-whitespace text that fails to parse as a, only then do we reject the input.
