# The streams package

Various Haskell 2010 stream comonads.
* `Data.Stream.Future` provides a coinductive anti-causal stream, or non-empty `ZipList`. The comonad provides access to only the
tail of the stream. Like a conventional `ZipList`, this is *not* a monad.

data Future a = Last a | a :< Future a

`Data.Stream.Future.Skew`provides a non-empty skew-binary random-access-list with the semantics of`Data.Stream.Future`. As with`Data.Stream.Future`this stream is not a`Monad`, since the`Applicative`instance zips streams of potentially differing lengths. The random-access-list structure provides a number of operations logarithmic access time, but makes`Data.Stream.Future.Skew.cons`less productive. Where applicable`Data.Stream.Infinite.Skew`may be more efficient, due to a lazier and more efficient`Applicative`instance.

`Data.Stream.Infinite`provides a coinductive infinite anti-causal stream. The`Comonad`provides access to the tail of the stream and the`Applicative`zips streams together. Unlike`Future`, infinite stream form a`Monad`. The monad diagonalizes the`Stream`, which is consistent with the behavior of the`Applicative`, and the view of a`Stream`as a isomorphic to the reader monad from the natural numbers. Being infinite in length, there is no`Alternative`instance.

data Stream a = a :< Stream a

`Data.Stream.Infinite.Skew`provides an infinite skew-binary random-access-list with the semantics of`Data.Stream.Infinite`Since every stream is infinite, the`Applicative`instance can be considerably less strict than the corresponding instance for`Data.Stream.Future.Skew`and performs asymptotically better.

`Data.Stream.Infinite.Functional.Zipper`provides a bi-infinite sequence, represented as a pure function with an accumulating parameter added to optimize moving the current focus.

data Zipper a = !Integer :~ (Integer -> a)

`Data.Stream.Supply`provides a comonadic supply of unique values, which are generated impurely as the tree is explored.
