class Category k => Isomorphic k whereSource

Used to provide overloading of isomorphism application

This is a `Category`

with a canonical mapping to it from the
category of isomorphisms over Haskell types.

isomorphic :: (a -> b) -> (b -> a) -> k a bSource

Build this morphism out of an isomorphism

The intention is that by using `isomorphic`

, you can supply both halves of an
isomorphism, but k can be instantiated to `(->)`

, so you can freely use
the resulting isomorphism as a function.

isomap :: ((a -> b) -> c -> d) -> ((b -> a) -> d -> c) -> k a b -> k c dSource

Map a morphism in the target category using an isomorphism between morphisms in Hask.

data Isomorphism a b Source

A concrete data type for isomorphisms.

This lets you place an isomorphism inside a container without using `ImpredicativeTypes`

.

Isomorphism (a -> b) (b -> a) |

from :: Isomorphic k => Isomorphism a b -> k b aSource

via :: Isomorphic k => Isomorphism a b -> k a bSource

Convert from an `Isomorphism`

back to any `Isomorphic`

value.

This is useful when you need to store an isomoprhism as a data type inside a container and later reconstitute it as an overloaded function.
