quickspec: Equational laws for free!
QuickSpec takes your Haskell code and, as if by magic, discovers laws about it. You give QuickSpec a collection of Haskell functions; QuickSpec tests your functions with QuickCheck and prints out laws which seem to hold.
For example, give QuickSpec the functions
it will find six laws:
reverse  ==  xs ++  == xs  ++ xs == xs reverse (reverse xs) == xs (xs ++ ys) ++ zs == xs ++ (ys ++ zs) reverse xs ++ reverse ys == reverse (ys ++ xs)
QuickSpec can find equational laws as well as conditional equations. All
you need to supply are the functions to test, as well as
Arbitrary instances for QuickSpec to use in testing; the rest is
For information on how to use QuickSpec, see the documentation in the main
module, QuickSpec. You can also look in the
directory, for example at
