# Pair

mapPair :: (a -> c, b -> d) -> (a, b) -> (c, d) Source #

Cf. `(***)`

.

Apply two functions on corresponding values in a pair,
where the pattern match on the pair constructor is lazy.
This is crucial in recursions such as the one of `partition`

.
One the other hand there are applications
where strict application is crucial,
e.g. `mapSnd f ab`

where the left pair member is a large lazy list.
With the lazy `mapSnd`

we make the application of `f`

depend on the whole pair `ab`

.
See Data.Tuple.Example for two examples
where one variant is definitely better than the other one.

sortPair :: Ord a => (a, a) -> (a, a) Source #

This is convenient for quick hacks but I suggest that you better define a type for an ordered pair for your application at hand. This way, you can clearly see from the type that a pair is ordered.
