class Category k => Isomorphic k whereSource

Used to provide overloading of isomorphism application

This is a Category with a canonical mapping to it from the category of isomorphisms over Haskell types.


isomorphic :: (a -> b) -> (b -> a) -> k a bSource

Build this morphism out of an isomorphism

The intention is that by using isomorphic, you can supply both halves of an isomorphism, but k can be instantiated to (->), so you can freely use the resulting isomorphism as a function.

isomap :: ((a -> b) -> c -> d) -> ((b -> a) -> d -> c) -> k a b -> k c dSource

Map a morphism in the target category using an isomorphism between morphisms in Hask.

data Isomorphism a b Source

A concrete data type for isomorphisms.

This lets you place an isomorphism inside a container without using ImpredicativeTypes.


Isomorphism (a -> b) (b -> a) 

from :: Isomorphic k => Isomorphism a b -> k b aSource

Invert an isomorphism.

Note to compose an isomorphism and receive an isomorphism in turn you'll need to use Category

 from (from l) = l

If you imported . from Control.Category, then:

 from l . from r = from (r . l)

via :: Isomorphic k => Isomorphism a b -> k a bSource

Convert from an Isomorphism back to any Isomorphic value.

This is useful when you need to store an isomoprhism as a data type inside a container and later reconstitute it as an overloaded function.
