base-orphans: Backwards-compatible orphan instances for base

[ compatibility, library, mit ] [ Propose Tags ]

base-orphans defines orphan instances that mimic instances available in later versions of base to a wider (older) range of compilers. base-orphans does not export anything except the orphan instances themselves and complements base-compat. base-orphans-0 is an intentional empty release. For an explanation as to why it exists, see the README.

Scope

base-orphans defines orphan instances that mimic instances available in later versions of base to a wider (older) range of compilers. base-orphans does not export anything except the orphan instances themselves and complements base-compat.

About base-orphans-0

base-orphans-0 is a special release that intentionally does not export any modules. base-orphans-0 is used when retroactively adding base-orphans dependencies to older Hackage libraries to ensure that they cannot be built in combination with more recent versions of base-orphans that would cause them to break. (For example, if a package defines an orphan instance which clashes with one in base-orphans.)

We also make an attempt to keep base-orphans building with GHC HEAD, but due to its volatility, it may not work at any given point in time. If it doesn't, please report it!

Patches are welcome; add tests for new code!
