Definition of propositional equality (:~:)
. Pattern-matching on a variable
of type (a :~: b)
produces a proof that a ~ b
.
Since: 4.7.0.0
Synopsis
- data a :~: b where
- class a ~# b => (a :: k0) ~~ (b :: k1)
- data (a :: k1) :~~: (b :: k2) where
- sym :: (a :~: b) -> b :~: a
- trans :: (a :~: b) -> (b :~: c) -> a :~: c
- castWith :: (a :~: b) -> a -> b
- gcastWith :: (a :~: b) -> (a ~ b => r) -> r
- apply :: (f :~: g) -> (a :~: b) -> f a :~: g b
- inner :: (f a :~: g b) -> a :~: b
- outer :: (f a :~: g b) -> f :~: g

- testEquality :: f a -> f b -> Maybe (a :~: b)
- type family (a :: k) == (b :: k) :: Bool where ...
The equality types
data a :~: b where infix 4 Source #
Propositional equality. If a :~: b
is inhabited by some terminating
value, then the type a
is the same as the type b
. To use this equality
in practice, pattern-match on the a :~: b
to get out the Refl
constructor;
in the body of the pattern-match, the compiler knows that a ~ b
.

Lifted, heterogeneous equality. By lifted, we mean that it
can be bogus (deferred type error). By heterogeneous, the two
types a
and b
might have different kinds. Because ~~
can
appear unexpectedly in error messages to users who do not care
about the difference between heterogeneous equality ~~
and
homogeneous equality ~
, this is printed as ~
unless
-fprint-equality-relations
is set.
data (a :: k1) :~~: (b :: k2) where infix 4 Source #
Kind heterogeneous propositional equality. Like :~:
, a :~~: b
is
inhabited by a terminating value if and only if a
is the same type as b
.

Working with equality
gcastWith :: (a :~: b) -> (a ~ b => r) -> r Source #
Generalized form of type-safe cast using propositional equality
inner :: (f a :~: g b) -> a :~: b Source #
Extract equality of the arguments from an equality of applied types
outer :: (f a :~: g b) -> f :~: g Source #
Extract equality of type constructors from an equality of applied types
Inferring equality from other types
class TestEquality f where Source #
This class contains types where you can learn the equality of two types from information contained in terms. Typically, only singleton types should inhabit this class.
testEquality :: f a -> f b -> Maybe (a :~: b) Source #
Conditionally prove the equality of a
and b
.
