vec: Vec: length-indexed (sized) list

[ bsd3, data, dependent-types, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides length-indexed (sized) lists, also known as vectors.

data Vec n a where
    VNil  :: Vec 'Nat.Z a
    (:::) :: a -> Vec n a -> Vec ('Nat.S n) a

The functions are implemented in three flavours:

As best approach depends on the application, vec doesn't do any magic transformation. Benchmark your code.

This package uses fin, i.e. not GHC.TypeLits, for indexes.

See Hasochism: the pleasure and pain of dependently typed haskell programming by Sam Lindley and Conor McBride for answers to how and why. Read APLicative Programming with Naperian Functors by Jeremy Gibbons for (not so) different ones.
