quickcheck-property-comb: Combinators for Quickcheck Property construction and diagnostics

This is a package candidate release! Here you can preview how this package release will appear once published to the main package index (which can be accomplished via the 'maintain' link below). Please note that once a package has been published to the main package index it cannot be undone! Please consult the package uploading documentation for more information.


These are simple monads that aim to reduce the pain of composing invariants/properties, and the documenting of those invariants for determining the cause of failure. Specifically, they provide a tool for effective diagnostic for invariants with changing post-conditions, leading to a faster cause-of-failure diagnosis.

Example case for invariants on a data structure Consumers.

data (Ord l) => Consumers l =
  Consumers {
    introduced :: S.Set l,
    met :: M.Map (S.Set l) Bool,
    disjoints :: Disjoints l

disjoints_odds ::  Inv (Disjoints l)
disjoints_odds = do
 doc "no odd sets in disjoints"
 disjoint_sets <- cause
 return False

disjoints_non_singletons :: Inv (Disjoints l)
disjoints_non_singletons = do
  return True

disjoints_inv :: Invariants (Disjoints l)
disjoints_inv= do
  sat disjoints_odds
  sat disjoints_non_singletons

introduced_in_disjoint :: Inv (Consumers l)
introduced_in_disjoint = do
  doc "all at quantity are a singleton subset in disjoints"
  subsets       <- (map S.singleton) . S.toList . introduced <$> cause
  disjoint_sets <- disjoints <$> cause
  return . and . map ((flip S.member) disjoint_sets) $ subsets

inv_consumers :: Invariants (Consumers l)
inv_consumers = do
  satcomp disjoints disjoints_inv
  satcomp met met_inv
  sat introduced_in_disjoint

And to run the invariants on generated cases:

prop_testedFunction :: Arg -> Property
prop_testedFunction arg =
 let consumers = testedFunction arg in
   runInvariants consumers inv_consumers
