EvEff: Efficient effect handlers based on Evidence translation

Efficient effect handlers based on evidence translation [1]. The interface and design is described in detail in "Effect Handlers in Haskell, Evidently", Ningning Xie and Daan Leijen, Haskell 2020.

An example of defining and using a Reader effect:

{-# LANGUAGE  TypeOperators, FlexibleContexts, Rank2Types #-}
import Control.Ev.Eff

-- A @Reader@ effect definition with one operation @ask@ of type @()@ to @a@.
data Reader a e ans = Reader{ ask :: Op () a e ans }

greet :: (Reader String :? e) => Eff e String
greet = do s <- perform ask ()
           return ("hello " ++ s)

test :: String
test = runEff $
       handler (Reader{ ask = value "world" }) $  -- @:: Reader String () Int@
       do s <- greet                              -- executes in context @:: Eff (Reader String :* ()) Int@
          return (length s)
