# The monad-control package

This package defines the type class `MonadBaseControl`, a subset of
`MonadBase` into which generic control operations such as `catch` can be
lifted from `IO` or any other base monad. Instances are based on monad
transformers in `MonadTransControl`, which includes all standard monad
transformers in the `transformers` library except `ContT`.

See the `lifted-base` package which uses `monad-control` to lift `IO`
operations from the `base` library (like `catch` or `bracket`) into any monad
that is an instance of `MonadBase` or `MonadBaseControl`.

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` and `TypeFamilies` language extensions to
simplify and speedup most definitions.

The following `criterion` based benchmark shows that `monad-control` is on
average about 99% faster than `monad-peel`:

## Flags

Name | Description | Default |
---|---|---|

instancest | If enabled this package will export MonadBaseControl instances for the lazy and strict ST monad. If disabled these instances are only exported when base >= 4.4. If enabled it is required that the transformer-base package exports MonadBase instances for ST. It will do this by default. | Enabled |

Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info
