The existential quantification is very important, as it captures the fact that we don't know the type statically, although we do know that it exists. Because this type is fully opaque, we should never be able to prove that it matches anything else. This is why coherence should still hold: we can manufacture a `KnownNat k` dictionary, but it can never be confused with a `KnownNat 33` dictionary, because we should never be able to prove that `k ~ 33`. But how to implement `someNatVal`? We can't quite implement it "honestly" because `SomeNat` needs to "hide" the type of the newly created dictionary, but we don't know what the actual type is! If `someNatVal` was built into the language, then we could manufacture a new skolem constant, which should behave correctly. Since extra language constructors have additional maintenance costs, we use a trick to implement `someNatVal` in the library. The idea is that instead of generating a "fresh" type for each use of `someNatVal`, we simply use GHC's placeholder type `Any` (of kind `Nat`). So, the elaborated version of the code is: someNatVal n = withSNat @T (SomeNat @T) (SNat @T n) (Proxy @T) where type T = Any Nat After inlining and simplification, this ends up looking something like this: someNatVal n = SomeNat @T (KnownNat @T (SNat @T n)) (Proxy @T) where type T = Any Nat `KnownNat` is the constructor for dictionaries for the class `KnownNat`. See Note [magicDictId magic] in "basicType/MkId.hs" for details on how we actually construct the dictionary. Note that using `Any Nat` is not really correct, as multilple calls to `someNatVal` would violate coherence: type T = Any Nat x = SomeNat @T (KnownNat @T (SNat @T 1)) (Proxy @T) y = SomeNat @T (KnownNat @T (SNat @T 2)) (Proxy @T) Note that now the code has two dictionaries with the same type, `KnownNat Any`, but they have different implementations, namely `SNat 1` and `SNat 2`. This is not good, as GHC assumes coherence, and it is free to interchange dictionaries of the same type, but in this case this would produce an incorrect result. See #16586 for examples of this happening. We can avoid this problem by making the definition of `someNatVal` opaque and we do this by using a `NOINLINE` pragma. This restores coherence, because GHC can only inspect the result of `someNatVal` by pattern matching on the existential, which would generate a new type. This restores correctness, at the cost of having a little more allocation for the `SomeNat` constructors. -} -- | @since 4.7.0.0 instance Eq SomeNat where SomeNat x == SomeNat y = natVal x == natVal y -- | @since 4.7.0.0 instance Ord SomeNat where compare (SomeNat x) (SomeNat y) = compare (natVal x) (natVal y) -- | @since 4.7.0.0 instance Show SomeNat where showsPrec p (SomeNat x) = showsPrec p (natVal x) -- | @since 4.7.0.0 instance Read SomeNat where readsPrec p xs = do (a,ys) <- readsPrec p xs [(someNatVal a, ys)] -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- infix 4 <=?, <= infixl 6 +, - infixl 7 *, `Div`, `Mod` infixr 8 ^ -- | Comparison of type-level naturals, as a constraint. -- -- @since 4.7.0.0 type x <= y = (x <=? y) ~ 'True -- | Comparison of type-level naturals, as a function. -- -- @since 4.7.0.0 type family CmpNat (m :: Nat) (n :: Nat) :: Ordering {- | Comparison of type-level naturals, as a function.
