Functor and monad classes
class Functor f where Source #
The Functor
class is used for types that can be mapped over.
Instances of Functor
should satisfy the following laws:
fmap id == id fmap (f . g) == fmap f . fmap g
The instances of Functor
for lists, Maybe
and IO
satisfy these laws.
Instances
class Applicative m => Monad m where Source #
The Monad
class defines the basic operations over a monad,
a concept from a branch of mathematics known as category theory.
From the perspective of a Haskell programmer, however, it is best to
think of a monad as an abstract datatype of actions.
Haskell's do
expressions provide a convenient syntax for writing
monadic expressions.
Instances of Monad
should satisfy the following laws:
Furthermore, the Monad
and Applicative
operations should relate as follows:
The above laws imply:
and that pure
and (<*>
) satisfy the applicative functor laws.
The instances of Monad
for lists, Maybe
and IO
defined in the Prelude satisfy these laws.
(>>=) :: forall a b. m a -> (a -> m b) -> m b infixl 1 Source #
Sequentially compose two actions, passing any value produced by the first as an argument to the second.
(>>) :: forall a b. m a -> m b -> m b infixl 1 Source #
Sequentially compose two actions, discarding any value produced by the first, like sequencing operators (such as the semicolon) in imperative languages.
Inject a value into the monadic type.
fail :: String -> m a Source #
Fail with a message. This operation is not part of the
mathematical definition of a monad, but is invoked on pattern-match
failure in a do
expression.
As part of the MonadFail proposal (MFP), this function is moved
to its own class MonadFail
(see Control.Monad.Fail for more
details). The definition here will be removed in a future
release.
Instances
class (Alternative m, Monad m) => MonadPlus m where Source #
Monads that also support choice and failure.
Nothing
The identity of mplus
. It should also satisfy the equations
mzero >>= f = mzero v >> mzero = mzero
The default definition is
mzero = empty
mplus :: m a -> m a -> m a Source #
An associative operation. The default definition is
mplus = (<|>
)

Functions
Naming conventions
The functions in this library use the following naming conventions:
- A postfix '
M
' always stands for a function in the Kleisli category: The monad type constructorm
is added to function results (modulo currying) and nowhere else. So, for example,
filter :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [a] filterM :: (Monad m) => (a -> m Bool) -> [a] -> m [a]
- A postfix '
_
' changes the result type from(m a)
to(m ())
. Thus, for example:
sequence :: Monad m => [m a] -> m [a] sequence_ :: Monad m => [m a] -> m ()
- A prefix '
m
' generalizes an existing function to a monadic form. Thus, for example:
filter :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [a] mfilter :: MonadPlus m => (a -> Bool) -> m a -> m a
Basic Monad
functions
mapM :: (Traversable t, Monad m) => (a -> m b) -> t a -> m (t b) Source #
Map each element of a structure to a monadic action, evaluate
these actions from left to right, and collect the results. For
a version that ignores the results see mapM_
.
forM :: (Traversable t, Monad m) => t a -> (a -> m b) -> m (t b) Source #
sequence :: (Traversable t, Monad m) => t (m a) -> m (t a) Source #
Evaluate each monadic action in the structure from left to
right, and collect the results. For a version that ignores the
results see sequence_
.
sequence_ :: (Foldable t, Monad m) => t (m a) -> m () Source #
Evaluate each monadic action in the structure from left to right,
and ignore the results. For a version that doesn't ignore the
results see sequence
.
As of base 4.8.0.0, sequence_
is just sequenceA_
, specialized
to Monad
.
(=<<) :: Monad m => (a -> m b) -> m a -> m b infixr 1 Source #
Same as >>=
, but with the arguments interchanged.
(>=>) :: Monad m => (a -> m b) -> (b -> m c) -> a -> m c infixr 1 Source #
Left-to-right composition of Kleisli arrows.
forever :: Applicative f => f a -> f b Source #
Repeat an action indefinitely.
Examples
A common use of forever
is to process input from network sockets,
Handle
s, and channels
(e.g. MVar
and
Chan
).
For example, here is how we might implement an echo
server, using
forever
both to listen for client connections on a network socket
and to echo client input on client connection handles:
echoServer :: Socket -> IO () echoServer socket =forever
$ do client <- accept socketforkFinally
(echo client) (\_ -> hClose client) where echo :: Handle -> IO () echo client =forever
$ hGetLine client >>= hPutStrLn client
void :: Functor f => f a -> f () Source #
discards or ignores the result of evaluation, such
as the return value of an void
valueIO
action.
Examples
Replace the contents of a
with unit:Maybe
Int
>>>
void Nothing
Nothing>>>
void (Just 3)
Just ()
Replace the contents of an
with unit,
resulting in an Either
Int
Int
:Either
Int
'()'
>>>
void (Left 8675309)
Left 8675309>>>
void (Right 8675309)
Right ()
Replace every element of a list with unit:
>>>
void [1,2,3]
[(),(),()]
Replace the second element of a pair with unit:
>>>
void (1,2)
(1,())
Discard the result of an IO
action:
>>>
mapM print [1,2]
1 2 [(),()]>>>
void $ mapM print [1,2]
1 2
Generalisations of list functions
join :: Monad m => m (m a) -> m a Source #
The join
function is the conventional monad join operator. It
is used to remove one level of monadic structure, projecting its
bound argument into the outer level.
Examples
A common use of join
is to run an IO
computation returned from
an STM
transaction, since STM
transactions
can't perform IO
directly. Recall that
atomically
:: STM a -> IO a
is used to run STM
transactions atomically. So, by
specializing the types of atomically
and join
to
atomically
:: STM (IO b) -> IO (IO b)join
:: IO (IO b) -> IO b
we can compose them as
join
.atomically
:: STM (IO b) -> IO b
filterM :: Applicative m => (a -> m Bool) -> [a] -> m [a] Source #
This generalizes the list-based filter
function.
mapAndUnzipM :: Applicative m => (a -> m (b, c)) -> [a] -> m ([b], [c]) Source #
The mapAndUnzipM
function maps its first argument over a list, returning
the result as a pair of lists. This function is mainly used with complicated
data structures or a state-transforming monad.
zipWithM :: Applicative m => (a -> b -> m c) -> [a] -> [b] -> m [c] Source #
zipWithM_ :: Applicative m => (a -> b -> m c) -> [a] -> [b] -> m () Source #
foldM :: (Foldable t, Monad m) => (b -> a -> m b) -> b -> t a -> m b Source #
The foldM
function is analogous to foldl
, except that its result is
encapsulated in a monad. Note that foldM
works from left-to-right over
the list arguments. This could be an issue where (
and the `folded
function' are not commutative.>>
)
foldM f a1 [x1, x2, ..., xm] == do a2 <- f a1 x1 a3 <- f a2 x2 ... f am xm
If right-to-left evaluation is required, the input list should be reversed.
foldM_ :: (Foldable t, Monad m) => (b -> a -> m b) -> b -> t a -> m () Source #
Like foldM
, but discards the result.
replicateM :: Applicative m => Int -> m a -> m [a] Source #
performs the action replicateM
n actn
times,
gathering the results.
replicateM_ :: Applicative m => Int -> m a -> m () Source #
Like replicateM
, but discards the result.
Conditional execution of monadic expressions
guard :: Alternative f => Bool -> f () Source #
Conditional failure of Alternative
computations. Defined by
guard True =pure
() guard False =empty
Examples
Common uses of guard
include conditionally signaling an error in
an error monad and conditionally rejecting the current choice in an
Alternative
-based parser.
As an example of signaling an error in the error monad Maybe
,
consider a safe division function safeDiv x y
that returns
Nothing
when the denominator y
is zero and
otherwise. For example:Just
(x `div`
y)
>>> safeDiv 4 0 Nothing >>> safeDiv 4 2 Just 2
A definition of safeDiv
using guards, but not guard
:
safeDiv :: Int -> Int -> Maybe Int safeDiv x y | y /= 0 = Just (x `div` y) | otherwise = Nothing
A definition of safeDiv
using guard
and Monad
do
-notation:
safeDiv :: Int -> Int -> Maybe Int safeDiv x y = do guard (y /= 0) return (x `div` y)
when :: Applicative f => Bool -> f () -> f () Source #
Conditional execution of Applicative
expressions. For example,
when debug (putStrLn "Debugging")
will output the string Debugging
if the Boolean value debug
is True
, and otherwise do nothing.
Monadic lifting operators
liftM2 :: Monad m => (a1 -> a2 -> r) -> m a1 -> m a2 -> m r Source #
Promote a function to a monad, scanning the monadic arguments from left to right. For example,
liftM2 (+) [0,1] [0,2] = [0,2,1,3] liftM2 (+) (Just 1) Nothing = Nothing
liftM3 :: Monad m => (a1 -> a2 -> a3 -> r) -> m a1 -> m a2 -> m a3 -> m r Source #
Promote a function to a monad, scanning the monadic arguments from
left to right (cf. liftM2
).
liftM4 :: Monad m => (a1 -> a2 -> a3 -> a4 -> r) -> m a1 -> m a2 -> m a3 -> m a4 -> m r Source #
Promote a function to a monad, scanning the monadic arguments from
left to right (cf. liftM2
).
liftM5 :: Monad m => (a1 -> a2 -> a3 -> a4 -> a5 -> r) -> m a1 -> m a2 -> m a3 -> m a4 -> m a5 -> m r Source #
Promote a function to a monad, scanning the monadic arguments from
left to right (cf. liftM2
).
