The vault package

[ Tags: bsd3, data, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

A vault is a persistent store for values of arbitrary types. It's like having first-class access to the storage space behind IORefs.

The data structure is analogous to a bank vault, where you can access different bank boxes with different keys; hence the name.

Also provided is a locker type, representing a store for a single element.

Build Status

Vault is a tiny library that provides a single data structure called vault.

A vault is a type-safe, persistent storage for values of arbitrary types. Like IORef, I want to be able to store values of any type in it, but unlike IORef, I want the storage space to behave like a persistent, first-class data structure, as appropriate for a purely functional language.

It is analogous to a bank vault, where you can access different bank boxes with different keys; hence the name.

In other words, a vault is an abstract data type with the following basic signature

data Key a
data Vault

newKey :: IO (Key a)
empty  :: Vault
lookup :: Key a -> Vault -> Maybe a
insert :: Key a -> a -> Vault -> Vault
delete :: Key a -> Vault -> Vault

A few common functions for finite maps, like adjust and union, are provided as well.

This library was created thanks to the feedback on my blog post Vault - a persistent store for values of arbitrary types.

Installation

The whole thing is available on hackage, so you just have to type

cabal update
cabal install vault
