MonadWriter class
class (Monoid w, Monad m) => MonadWriter w m  m > w whereSource
embeds a simple writer action.
writer
(a,w)
is an action that produces the output tell
ww
.
listen :: m a > m (a, w)Source
is an action that executes the action listen
mm
and adds
its output to the value of the computation.
pass :: m (a, w > w) > m aSource
is an action that executes the action pass
mm
, which
returns a value and a function, and returns the value, applying
the function to the output.

censor :: MonadWriter w m => (w > w) > m a > m aSource
The Writer monad
runWriter :: Writer w a > (a, w)
Unwrap a writer computation as a (result, output) pair.
(The inverse of writer
.)
execWriter :: Writer w a > w
Extract the output from a writer computation.
execWriter
m =snd
(runWriter

The WriterT monad transformer
newtype WriterT w m a
A writer monad parameterized by:

w
 the output to accumulate. 
m
 The inner monad.
The return
function produces the output mempty
, while >>=
combines the outputs of the subcomputations using mappend
.
WriterT (m (a, w)) 
runWriterT :: WriterT w m a > m (a, w)
The inverse of WriterT
.
execWriterT :: Monad m => WriterT w m a > m w
Extract the output from a writer computation.
execWriterT
m =liftM
snd
(runWriterT
m)
mapWriterT :: (m (a, w) > n (b, w')) > WriterT w m a > WriterT w' n b
Map both the return value and output of a computation using the given function.
runWriterT
(mapWriterT
f m) = f (runWriterT
