# Documentation

caseList :: [a] -> b -> (a -> [a] -> b) -> b Source #

Case distinction for lists, with list first.
Cf. `ifNull`

.

headWithDefault :: a -> [a] -> a Source #

Head function (safe). Returns a value on empty lists.

headWithDefault 42 [] = 42 headWithDefault 42 [1,2,3] = 1

updateHead :: (a -> a) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Update the first element of a list, if it exists.

updateLast :: (a -> a) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Update the last element of a list, if it exists.

updateAt :: Int -> (a -> a) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Update nth element of a list, if it exists. Precondition: the index is >= 0.

mapEither :: (a -> Either b c) -> [a] -> ([b], [c]) Source #

A generalized version of `partition`

.
(Cf. `mapMaybe`

vs. `filter`

).

takeWhileJust :: (a -> Maybe b) -> [a] -> [b] Source #

A generalized version of `takeWhile`

.
(Cf. `mapMaybe`

vs. `filter`

).

partitionMaybe :: (a -> Maybe b) -> [a] -> ([a], [b]) Source #

filterAndRest :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> ([a], [a]) Source #

Like `filter`

, but additionally return the last partition
of the list where the predicate is `False`

everywhere.

mapMaybeAndRest :: (a -> Maybe b) -> [a] -> ([b], [a]) Source #

Like `mapMaybe`

, but additionally return the last partition
of the list where the function always returns `Nothing`

.

dropCommon :: [a] -> [b] -> ([a], [b]) Source #

Drops from both lists simultaneously until one list is empty.

isSublistOf :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> Bool Source #

Sublist relation.

stripPrefixBy :: (a -> a -> Bool) -> Prefix a -> [a] -> Maybe (Suffix a) Source #

Check if a list has a given prefix. If so, return the list minus the prefix.

data PreOrSuffix a Source #

Result of `preOrSuffix`

.

preOrSuffix :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> PreOrSuffix a Source #

Compare lists with respect to prefix partial order.

wordsBy :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

Split a list into sublists. Generalisation of the prelude function
`words`

.

words xs == wordsBy isSpace xs

chopWhen :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

Chop a list at the positions when the predicate holds. Contrary to
`wordsBy`

, consecutive separator elements will result in an empty segment
in the result.
> intercalate [x] (chopWhen (== x) xs) == xs

sorted :: Ord a => [a] -> Bool Source #

Check whether a list is sorted.

Assumes that the `Ord`

instance implements a partial order.

distinct :: Eq a => [a] -> Bool Source #

Check whether all elements in a list are distinct from each
other. Assumes that the `Eq`

instance stands for an equivalence
relation.

fastDistinct :: Ord a => [a] -> Bool Source #

allEqual :: Eq a => [a] -> Bool Source #

Checks if all the elements in the list are equal. Assumes that
the `Eq`

instance stands for an equivalence relation.

duplicates :: Ord a => [a] -> [a] Source #

Returns an (arbitrary) representative for each list element that occurs more than once.

groupBy' :: (a -> a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

A variant of `groupBy`

which applies the predicate to consecutive
pairs.

splitExactlyAt :: Integral n => n -> [a] -> Maybe ([a], [a]) Source #

`splitExactlyAt n xs = Just (ys, zs)`

iff `xs = ys ++ zs`

and `genericLength ys = n`

.

genericElemIndex :: (Eq a, Integral i) => a -> [a] -> Maybe i Source #

A generalised variant of `elemIndex`

.

zipWith' :: (a -> b -> c) -> [a] -> [b] -> Maybe [c] Source #

Requires both lists to have the same length.

Otherwise, `Nothing`

is returned.

zipWithKeepRest :: (a -> b -> b) -> [a] -> [b] -> [b] Source #

Like `zipWith`

but keep the rest of the second list as-is
(in case the second list is longer).

zipWithKeepRest f as bs == zipWith f as bs ++ drop (length as) bs

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

Efficient variant of `nubBy`

for finite lists.

Specification:

nubOn f xs == 'nubBy' ((==) `'on'` f) xs.

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

Efficient variant of `nubBy`

for finite lists.

Specification: For each list `xs`

there is a list `ys`

which is a
permutation of `xs`

such that

uniqOn f xs == 'nubBy' ((==) `'on'` f) ys.

Furthermore

List.sortBy (compare `on` f) (uniqOn f xs) == uniqOn f xs.

commonSuffix :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Compute the common suffix of two lists.

commonPrefix :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Compute the common prefix of two lists.

editDistanceSpec :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> Int Source #

editDistance :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> Int Source #
