The deepseq package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

This package provides methods for fully evaluating data structures ("deep evaluation"). Deep evaluation is often used for adding strictness to a program, e.g. in order to force pending exceptions, remove space leaks, or force lazy I/O to happen. It is also useful in parallel programs, to ensure pending work does not migrate to the wrong thread.

The primary use of this package is via the deepseq function, a "deep" version of seq. It is implemented on top of an NFData typeclass ("Normal Form Data", data structures with no unevaluated components) which defines strategies for fully evaluating different data types.
