# Tagged values

A

value is a value `Tagged`

s b`b`

with an attached phantom type `s`

.
This can be used in place of the more traditional but less safe idiom of
passing in an undefined value with the type, because unlike an `(s -> b)`

,
a

can't try to use the argument `Tagged`

s b`s`

as a real value.

Moreover, you don't have to rely on the compiler to inline away the extra argument, because the newtype is "free"

asTaggedTypeOf :: s -> Tagged s b -> sSource

`asTaggedTypeOf`

is a type-restricted version of `const`

. It is usually used as an infix operator, and its typing forces its first argument (which is usually overloaded) to have the same type as the tag of the second.
