utility-ht-0.0.8: Various small helper functions for Lists, Maybes, Tuples, Functions

Safe HaskellSafe-Infered



Variant of Data.List functions like group, sort where the comparison is performed on a key computed from the list elements. In principle these functions could be replaced by e.g. sortBy (compare on f), but f will be re-computed for every comparison. If the evaluation of f is expensive, our functions are better, since they buffer the results of f.



nub :: Eq b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> [a]Source

sort :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> [a]Source

minimum :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> aSource


maximum :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> aSource


group :: Eq b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> [[a]]Source

Divides a list into sublists such that the members in a sublist share the same key. It uses semantics of groupBy, not that of groupBy.

merge :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> [a] -> [a]Source
