# The monad-control package

This package defines the type class `MonadControlIO`, a subset of
`MonadIO` into which generic control operations such as `catch` can
be lifted from `IO`. Instances are based on monad transformers in
`MonadTransControl`, which includes all standard monad transformers
in the `transformers` library except `ContT`. For convenience, it
provides a wrapped version of `Control.Exception` with types
generalized from `IO` to all monads in `MonadControlIO`.

Note that this package is a rewrite of Anders Kaseorg's `monad-peel` library.
The main difference is that this package provides CPS style
operators and exploits the `RankNTypes` language extension to
simplify most definitions.

The package includes a copy of the `monad-peel` testsuite written by Anders Kaseorg.
The tests can be performed by using `cabal test`.

The following `critertion` based benchmark shows that `monad-control`
is on average about 2.5 times faster than `monad-peel`:
