Ticket #2133 (closed proposal: fixed)
Add an instance for IArray (IOToDiffArray IOUArray) Bool
|Reported by:||Deewiant||Owned by:||igloo|
|Type of failure:||Difficulty:||Unknown|
|Test Case:||Blocked By:|
An instance for IArray (IOToDiffArray IOUArray) Bool is missing from Data.Array.Diff. There doesn't seem to be any good reason for this: all the other IArray UArray a instances defined in Data.Array.IArray have corresponding instances. Bool is the sole exception.
They cannot be added in user code without copying the entire Data.Array.Diff source, since the instances require internal functions which aren't exposed.
Since all the instances are defined in exactly the same way, only varying the second type parameter, this requires practically zero work: just copy any of the other instances and replace the type parameter with Bool. A Show instance should also be provided. Both are in the patch.
To be sure that the instances haven't been omitted because they don't work, I wrote a few QuickCheck? properties (attached) and it seems that it does work without any trouble.
Suggested deadline for discussion: 17th March 2008.
