We statically prevent accessing an already closed handle or forgetting to close it. The -- libraries can be trivially extended to other resources such as database connections and graphic -- contexts. -- -- Because file handles and similar resources are scarce, we want to not just assure their safe use -- but further deallocate them soon after they are no longer needed. Relying on Fluet and -- Morrisett's calculus of nested regions, we contribute a novel, improved, and extended -- implementation of the calculus in Haskell, with file handles as resources. -- -- Our library supports region polymorphism and implicit region subtyping, along with higher-order -- functions, mutable state, recursion, and run-time exceptions. A program may allocate arbitrarily -- many resources and dispose of them in any order, not necessarily LIFO. Region annotations are -- part of an expression's inferred type. Our new Haskell encoding of monadic regions as monad -- transformers needs no witness terms. It assures timely deallocation even when resources have -- markedly different lifetimes and the identity of the longest-living resource is determined only -- dynamically. -- -- For contrast, we also implement a Haskell library for manual resource management, where -- deallocation is explicit and safety is assured by a form of linear types. We implement the linear -- typing in Haskell with the help of phantom types and a parameterized monad to statically track -- the type-state of resources. -- -- Joint work with Chung-chieh Shan. -- -- -- Handle-based IO with the assured open/close protocol, see README -- This file contains the Security kernel. See SafeHandlesTest.hs for tests. -- This is the final solution: lightweight monadic regions with -- only type-level enforcement of region discipline module System.SafeHandles (IORT, -- constructors not exported SIO, SHandle, runSIO, newRgn, liftSIO, newSHandle, shDup, IOMode(..), -- re-exported from System.IO shGetLine, shPutStrLn, shIsEOF, shThrow, shCatch, shReport, sNewIORef, -- IORef in SIO sReadIORef, sWriteIORef ) where import System.IO import Control.OldException import Control.Monad.Reader import Control.Monad.Trans import Data.IORef import Data.List (find) import Prelude hiding (catch) import GHC.IOBase (ioe_handle) -- | The IO monad with safe handles and regions (SIO) is implemented as -- the monad transformer IORT (recursively) applied to IO. -- -- Each region maintains the state listing all open -- handles assigned to the region. -- Since we already have IO, it is easy to implement the state as a -- mutable list (IORef of the list) and make this reference -- a pervasive environment. -- We could have used implicit parameters or implicit configurations to -- pass that IORef around. Here, we use ReaderT. -- Since we do IO with our handles, we may be tempted to make -- the IORT transformer an instance of MonadIO.
