Base types
class Monoid t => ChunkData t whereSource
ChunkData
is the class of data types that can be output by an
enumerator and iterated on with an iteratee. A ChunkData
type
must be a Monoid
, but must additionally provide a predicate,
null
, for testing whether an object is equal to mempty
.
Feeding a null
chunk to an iteratee followed by any other chunk
should have the same effect as just feeding the second chunk. To
simplify debugging, there is an additional requirement that
ChunkData
be convertable to a String with the chunkShow
method.
Note that because the Prelude contains a function null
for lists, you may wish to include the import:
import Prelude hiding (null)
Constructor function that builds a chunk containing data and a
False
EOF flag.
The basic Iteratee type is Iter t m a
, where t
is the type of
input (in class ChunkData
), m
is a monad in which the iteratee
may execute actions (using the MonadTrans
lift
method), and a
is the result type of the iteratee.
Internally, an Iter
is a function from an input Chunk
to a
result of type IterR
.

class (Typeable carg, Typeable cres) => CtlCmd carg cres  carg > cresSource
Class of control commands for enclosing enumerators. The class binds each control argument type to a unique result type.
The outcome of an IterC
request.
CtlUnsupp  The request type was not supported by the enumerator. 
CtlFail !SomeException  The request was supported, and executing it caused an exception to be thrown. 
CtlDone !a  The result of the control operation. 
Used when an Iter
is issuing a control request to an enclosing
enumerator. Note that unlike IterF
or IterM
, control requests
expose the residual data, which is ordinarily fed right back to the
continuation upon execution of the request. This allows certain
control operations (such as seek and tell) to flush, check the
length of, or adjust the residual data.
Contains information about a failed Iter
. Failures of type
IterException
must be caught by catchI
(or tryI
, etc.).
However, any other type of failure is considered a parse error, and
will be caught by multiParse
, ifParse
, and mplus
.
IterException !SomeException  An actual error occured that is not a parse error, EOF, etc. 
IterExpected [(String, String)]  List of 
IterEOFErr IOError  An EOF error occurred, either in some IO action
wrapped by 
IterParseErr String  A miscellaneous parse error occured. 
IterMzero  What you get from 
An IterR
is the result of feeding a chunk of data to an Iter
.
An IterR
is in one of several states: it may require more input
(IterF
), it may wish to execute monadic actions in the
transformed monad (IterM
), it may have a control request for an
enclosing enumerator (IterC
), it may have produced a result
(Done
), or it may have failed (Fail
).
IterF !(Iter t m a)  The iteratee requires more input. 
IterM !(m (IterR t m a))  The iteratee must execute monadic bind in monad

Execution
run :: (ChunkData t, Monad m) => Iter t m a > m aSource
Feed an EOF to an Iter
and return the result. Throws an
exception if there has been a failure.
runI :: (ChunkData t1, ChunkData t2, Monad m) => Iter t1 m a > Iter t2 m aSource
Runs an Iter
from within a different Iter
monad. If
successful, runI iter
will produce the same result as
. However, if lift
(run
iter)iter
fails, run
throws a
languagelevel exception, which cannot be caught within other
Iter
monads. By contrast, runI
throws a monadic exception that
can be caught. In short, use runI
in preference to run
in
situations where both are applicable. See a more detailed
discussion of the same issue with examples in the documentation for
in Data.IterIO.Inum.

Exception types
mkIterEOF :: String > IterFailSource
Make an IterEOFErr

Exception thrown by CtlI

Exceptionrelated functions
throwI :: Exception e => e > Iter t m aSource
Throw an exception from an Iteratee. The exception will be
propagated properly through nested Iteratees, which will allow it
to be categorized properly and avoid situations in which resources
such as file handles are not released. (Most iteratee code does
not assume the Monad parameter m
is in the MonadIO
class, and
hence cannot use catch
or
to clean up after
exceptions.) Use onException
throwI
in preference to throw
whenever
possible.
Do not use throwI
to throw parse errors or EOF errors. Use
throwEOFI
and throwParseI
instead. For performance reasons,
the IterFail
type segregates EOF and parse errors from other
types of failures.
throwEOFI :: String > Iter t m aSource
Throw an exception of type IterEOF
. This will be interpreted
by mkInum
as an end of file chunk when thrown by the codec. It
will also be interpreted by ifParse
and multiParse
as parsing
failure. If not caught within the Iter
monad, the exception will
be rethrown by run
(and hence $
) as an IOError
of type EOF.
throwParseI :: String > Iter t m aSource
Throw a miscellaneous parse error (after which input is assumed
to be unsynchronized and thus is discarded). Parse errors may be
caught as exception type IterFail
, but they can also be caught
more efficiently by the functions multiParse
, ifParse
, and
mplus
.
:: (Exception e, ChunkData t, Monad m)  
=> Iter t m a 

> (e > IterR t m a > Iter t m a)  Exception handler, which gets as arguments both the
exception and the failing 
> Iter t m a 
Catch an exception thrown by an Iter
, including exceptions
thrown by any Inum
s fused to the Iter
(or applied to it with
.$
). If you wish to catch just errors thrown within Inum
s,
see the function
in Data.IterIO.Inum.
inumCatch
On exceptions, catchI
invokes a handler passing it both the
exception thrown and the state of the failing IterR
, which may
contain more information than just the exception. In particular,
if the exception occured in an Inum
, the returned IterR
will
also contain the IterR
being fed by that Inum
, which likely
will not have failed. To avoid discarding this extra information,
you should not rethrow exceptions with throwI
. Rather, you
should rethrow an exception by reexecuting the failed IterR
with reRunIter
. For example, a possible definition of
onExceptionI
is:
onExceptionI iter cleanup = iter `catchI` \(SomeException
_) r > cleanup >>reRunIter
r
Note that catchI
only works for synchronous exceptions, such as
IO errors (thrown within liftIO
blocks), the monadic fail
operation, and exceptions raised by throwI
. It is not possible
to catch asynchronous exceptions, such as lazily evaluated
dividebyzero errors, the throw
function, or exceptions raised
by other threads using
if those exceptions might arrive
anywhere outside of a throwTo
liftIO
call.
`catchI`
has the default infix precedence (infixl 9
`catchI`
), which binds more tightly than any concatenation or
fusing operators.
catchPI :: (ChunkData t, Monad m) => Iter t m a > (IterFail > Iter t m a) > Iter t m aSource
Like catchI, but catches only what are considered to be parse
errorsthat is, every constructor of IterFail
except
IterException
.
tryI :: (ChunkData t, Monad m, Exception e) => Iter t m a > Iter t m (Either (e, IterR t m a) a)Source
tryRI :: (ChunkData t, Monad m) => Iter t m a > Iter t m (Either (IterR t m a) a)Source
A version of tryI
that catches all exceptions. Instead of
returning the exception caught, it returns the failing IterR
(from which you can extract the exception if you really want it).
The main use of this is for doing some kind of cleanup action,
then rethrowing the exception with reRunIter
.
For example, the following is a possible implementation of finallyI
:
finallyI iter cleanup = do er < tryRI iter cleanup either reRunIter return er
tryBI :: (ChunkData t, Monad m, Exception e) => Iter t m a > Iter t m (Either e a)Source
Simlar to tryI
, but saves all data that has been fed to the
Iter
, and rewinds the input if the Iter
fails. (The B
in
tryBI
stands for "backtracking".) Thus, if tryBI
returns
, the next Left
exceptionIter
to be invoked will see the same
input that caused the previous Iter
to fail. (For this reason,
it makes no sense ever to call
on the resumeI
Iter
you get
back from tryBI
, which is why tryBI
does not return the failing
Iteratee the way tryI
does.)
Because tryBI
saves a copy of all input, it can consume a lot of
memory and should only be used when the Iter
argument is known to
consume a bounded amount of data.
tryFBI :: (ChunkData t, Monad m) => Iter t m a > Iter t m (Either IterFail a)Source
A variant of tryBI
that, also rewinds input on failure, but
returns the raw IterFail
structure, rather than mapping it to a
particular exception. This is much faster because it requires no
dynamic casts. However, the same warning applies that tryFBI
should not be applied to Iter
s that could take unbounded input.
:: (ChunkData t, Monad m)  
=> Iter t m a  Iteratee 
> (a > Iter t m b) 

> Iter t m b 

> Iter t m b  result 
ifParse iter success failure
runs iter
, but saves a copy of
all input consumed using tryFBI
. (This means iter
must not
consume unbounded amounts of input! See multiParse
for such
cases.) If iter
succeeds, its result is passed to the function
success
. If iter
throws a parse error (with throwParseI
),
throws an EOF error (with throwEOFI
), or executes mzero
, then
failure
is executed with the input rewound (so that failure
is
fed the same input that iter
was). If iter
throws any other
type of exception, ifParse
passes the exception back and does not
execute failure
.
See Data.IterIO.Parse for a discussion of this function and the
related infix operator \/
(which is a synonym for ifNoParse
).
ifNoParse :: (ChunkData t, Monad m) => Iter t m a > Iter t m b > (a > Iter t m b) > Iter t m bSource
ifNoParse
is just ifParse
with the second and third arguments
reversed.
multiParse :: (ChunkData t, Monad m) => Iter t m a > Iter t m a > Iter t m aSource
Try two Iteratees and return the result of executing the second
if the first one throws a parse, EOF, or mzero
error. Note that
Data.IterIO.Parse defines
as an infix synonym for this
function.
<>
The statement multiParse a b
is similar to
, but the two functions operate differently. Depending on the
situation, only one of the two formulations may be correct.
Specifically:
ifParse
a return
b

works by first executingifParse
a f ba
, saving a copy of all input consumed bya
. Ifa
throws a parse error, the saved input is used to backtrack and executeb
on the same input thata
just rejected. Ifa
succeeds,b
is never run;a
's result is fed tof
, and the resulting action is executed without backtracking (so any error thrown withinf
will not be caught by thisifParse
expression).  Instead of saving input,
multiParse a b
executes botha
andb
concurrently as input chunks arrive. Ifa
throws a parse error, then the result of executingb
is returned. Ifa
either succeeds or throws an exception that is not a parse errorEOFmzero
, then the result of runninga
is returned.  With
multiParse a b
, ifb
returns a value, executes a monadic action vialift
, or issues a control request viactlI
, then further processing ofb
will be suspended untila
experiences a parse error, and thus the behavior will be equivalent to
.ifParse
a return b
The main restriction on ifParse
is that a
must not consume
unbounded amounts of input, or the program may exhaust memory
saving the input for backtracking. Note that the second argument
to ifParse
(i.e., return
in ifParse a return b
) is a
continuation for a
when a
succeeds.
The advantage of multiParse
is that it can avoid storing
unbounded amounts of input for backtracking purposes if both
Iter
s consume data. Another advantage is that with an expression
such as
, sometimes it is not convenient to break
the parse target into an action to execute with backtracking (ifParse
a f ba
)
and a continuation to execute without backtracking (f
). The
equivalent multiParse (a >>= f) b
avoids the need to do this,
since it does not do backtracking.
However, it is important to note that it is still possible to end
up storing unbounded amounts of input with multiParse
. For
example, consider the following code:
total :: (Monad m) => Iter String m Int total = multiParse parseAndSumIntegerList (return 1)  Bad
Here the intent is for parseAndSumIntegerList
to parse a
(possibly huge) list of integers and return their sum. If there is
a parse error at any point in the input, then the result is
identical to having defined total = return 1
. But return 1
succeeds immediately, consuming no input, which means that total
must return all leftover input for the next action (i.e., next
in total >>= next
). Since total
has to look arbitrarily far
into the input to determine that parseAndSumIntegerList
fails, in
practice total
will have to save all input until it knows that
parseAndSumIntegerList
succeeds.
A better approach might be:
total = multiParse parseAndSumIntegerList (nullI
>> return 1)
Here nullI
discards all input until an EOF is encountered, so
there is no need to keep a copy of the input around. This makes
sense so long as total
is the last or only Iteratee run on the
input stream. (Otherwise, nullI
would have to be replaced with
an Iteratee that discards input up to some endoflist marker.)
Another approach might be to avoid parsing combinators entirely and use:
total = parseAndSumIntegerList `catchPI
` handler
where handler _ = return 1
This last definition of total
may leave the input in some
partially consumed state. This is fine so long as total
is the
last Iter
executed on the input stream. Otherwise, before
throwing the parse error, parseAndSumIntegerList
would need to
ensure the input is at some reasonable boundary point for whatever
comes next. (The ungetI
function is sometimes helpful for this
purpose.)
Some basic Iters
data0I :: ChunkData t => Iter t m tSource
Returns a nonempty amount of input data if there is any input
left. Returns mempty
on an EOF condition.
dataI :: ChunkData t => Iter t m tSource
Like data0I
, but always returns nonempty data. Throws an
exception on an EOF condition.
pureI :: (Monad m, ChunkData t) => Iter t m tSource
A variant of data0I
that reads the whole input up to an EOF and
returns it.
someI :: (ChunkData tOut, Monad m) => Iter tIn m tOut > Iter tIn m tOutSource
Run an Iter
returning data of class ChunkData
and throw an
EOF exception if the data is null
. (Note that this is different
from the
method of the some
class in
Control.Applicative, which executes a computation one or more
times. The iterIO library does not use Alternative
, in part
because Alternative
's Alternative
<>
operator has left rather than
right fixity, which would make parsing less efficient. See
Data.IterIO.Parse for information about iterIO's <>
operator.)
atEOFI :: (Monad m, ChunkData t) => Iter t m BoolSource
Does not actually consume any input, but returns True
if there
is no more input data to be had.
ungetI :: ChunkData t => t > Iter t m ()Source
Place data back onto the input stream, where it will be the next
data consumed by subsequent Iter
s.
ctlI :: (CtlCmd carg cres, ChunkData t, Monad m) => carg > Iter t m cresSource
Issue a control request and return the result. Throws an
exception of type IterCUnsupp
if the operation type was not
supported by an enclosing enumerator.
Internal functions
fmapI :: Monad m => (a > b) > Iter t m a > Iter t m bSource
fmapI
is like liftM
, but differs in one important respect:
it preserves the failed result of an enumerator (and in fact
applies the function to the nonfailed target Iter
state). By
contrast, liftM
, which is equivalent to
, transforms the liftM
f i = i >>=
return
. f
component of all Maybe
aFail
states to Nothing
because of its use of >>=
.
runIterR :: (ChunkData t, Monad m) => IterR t m a > Chunk t > IterR t m aSource
Feed more input to an Iter
that has already been run (and hence
is already an IterR
). In the event that the IterR
is
requesting more input (i.e., is in the IterF
state), this is
straight forward. However, if the Iter
is in some other state
such as IterM
, this function needs to save the input until such
time as the IterR
is stepped to a new state (e.g., with stepR
or reRunIter
).
