newtype-generics: A typeclass and set of functions for working with newtypes

[ bsd3, control, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

Per Conor McBride, the Newtype typeclass represents the packing and unpacking of a newtype, and allows you to operate under that newtype with functions such as ala. Generics support was added in version 0.4, making this package a full replacement for the original newtype package, and a better alternative to newtype-th.
