# th-alpha: Alpha equivalence for TH Exp

Compare TH expressions (or clauses, patterns, etc.) for alpha equivalence. That is, compare for equality modulo the renaming of bound variables.

areExpAEq [| \x -> x |] [| \y -> y |] -- True

do let x = mkName "x" let y = mkName "y" runQ $ (LamE [VarP x] (VarE x)) @= (LamE [VarP y] (VarE y)) -- True

This can be useful when for instance testing libraries that use Template Haskell - usually correctness is only defined up to alpha equivalence.
