<hr />
<div>This page describes the process for maintaining the <br />
'''Core libraries'''. The core libraries are a subset of the packages in the<br />
Haskell Platform, and define basic APIs that are expected to be<br />
available in any Haskell implementation. They are listed under "The Core Libraries" below.<br />
<br />
Non-core libraries are, of course, managed by their own authors/maintainers (named in their .cabal file), using whatever policies those maintainers see fit. [Note: arguably the policies below might usefully be applied to all libraries embodied in the Haskell Platform, but that is a question for the HP team.]<br />
<br />
= General principles =<br />
<br />
* Each core package has a named maintainer, or small group of maintainers, who have commit access to the package. <br />
<br />
* Third parties are encouraged to make proposals for changes, both to the library API and its implementation, by sending the proposal to the maintainer (CC'ing the libraries mailing list).<br />
<br />
* The maintainer is trusted to decide what changes to make to the package, and when. They are strongly encouraged to follow the guidance below, but the general principle is: the community offers opinions, but the maintainers decide.<br />
<br />
<br />
= Responsiveness =<br />
<br />
* Third parties submitting proposals to the maintainer of a library can expect a timely and thoughtful response. <br />
* The more effort the proposer invests (for example, by constructing a patch rather than making an off-the-cuff suggestion) the more consideration s/he can reasonably expect.<br />
* Proposals that have widespread support, and are accompanied by patches (preferably with tests and documentation), should normally be accepted by the maintainer. <br />
* It is up to the maintainer to decide what "widespread" means; in particular, it does not always mean "a majority of those who responded". The majority-responder story is vulnerable to selection bias; e.g. 7 people (out of a client base of hundreds) say "add this function" but the maintainer thinks it will make the interface incrementally more complicated without sufficient benefit.<br />
* Where there is significant work involved in implementing a proposal, it is reasonable for a maintainer to ask for a patch. The principle is that maintainers are not obliged to do the work of implementing a proposal, even if it does enjoy wide support. For more substantial changes, it makes sense to develop the implementation in dialogue with the maintainer.<br />
<br />
= Guidance for proposers =<br />
<br />
A "proposal" can be anything from a one-sentence suggestion to a fully-implemented, tested, and documented patch.<br />
However, the more substantial the proposal the more attention you can expect. The process is this:<br />
<br />
* Send your proposal by email to the maintainer, with a copy to the libraries@haskell.org mailing list (which you need to [http://www.haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/libraries subscribe] to before posting).<br />
<br />
* Set a deadline for discussion (no less than two weeks), and act as chair/moderator for the discussion. <br />
<br />
* At the end of the discussion period, summarise your understanding of the consensus (or lack thereof), including a link to the thread in the mailing list archives, and send the summary to the maintainer for decision. The deadline gives you a moment to summarise the debate and hand over to the maintainer. It isn't a deadline for the maintainer to decide; for example he or she may seek more discussion first. <br />
<br />
* If the decision is positive, [http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/newticket create a ticket] on the GHC trac. The description of the ticket can summarise the proposal and link to the mail thread. Further discussion and implementation patches can be attached to the ticket, and the ticket helps the maintainer to keep track of what is on the go. (Obviously if the maintainer prefers some other mechanism, follow his or her guidance.)<br />
<br />
* For non-trivial changes the maintainer may ask for a patch. You may create the patch up front, and make it part of your proposal; or you may want to have some discussion about the design first, and only then roll up your sleeves to do the implementation; and for bigger jobs you may want to wait until the maintainer agrees in principle with the change.<br />
<br />
Here are desirable properties for a proposal and its implementation. The more of these properties your proposal or patch has, the more likely it is that the maintainer will adopt your idea. After all, to adopt it the maintainter will have to do whatever tasks you didn't do.<br />
<br />
* '''Description'''. A good proposal says clearly ''what'' you propose, ''why'' it is a good idea, and what its consequences would be.<br />
* '''Patch'''. Use <tt>darcs record</tt> or <tt>git commit</tt> (depending on what sort of repo the library lives in) to create it. Save the patch to a file, using <tt>darcs send --output</tt> or <tt>git format-patch</tt>. Make your changes against a copy of the master branch of the relevant library, and make sure it compiles.<br />
* '''Portability'''. Good code is portable. In particular, try to ensure the code runs in Hugs and GHC, and on Windows and Linux.<br />
* '''Style'''. Good code follows the conventions in the library you are modifying.<br />
* '''Documentation'''. Good code includes valid [http://haskell.org/haddock Haddock] documentation.<br />
* '''Tests'''. Good patches have suitable tests for the library's testsuite.<br />
<br />
= Guidance for maintainers =<br />
<br />
The principle is that we '''trust the maintainer''' to behave sensibly. The guidelines below are just that: guidelines, not rules. Still, the core libraries are used by many, many people, so maintainers should make every effort not to mess them up by accident. <br />
<br />
* '''API changes should be discussed''' on the libraries mailing list prior to making the change, even if the maintainer is the proposer. The maintainer still has ultimate say in what changes are made, but the community should have the opportunity to comment on changes. However, unanimity (or even a majority) is not required.<br />
<br />
* '''Every API change should be described precisely in the commit log.''' The commit logs should be sent to a public mailing list, or otherwise made easily available (e.g. via github), so that the community can keep an eye on changes and comment.<br />
<br />
* '''Backwards compatibility''' is important to many users. API changes are expected to retain backwards compatibility wherever possible. However, from time to time we may decide to have major revisions which are explicitly not backwards compatible; in these cases we may try to make the previous version of the package available concurrently, as in the base-3/base-4 switchover.<br />
<br />
* You don't need to consult the community for '''purely internal changes'''; i.e. changes that do not affect the library's clients.<br />
<br />
* Changes that simply '''widen the API by adding new functions''' are a bit of a grey area. It's better to consult the community, because there may be useful feedback about (say) the order of arguments, or the name of the function, or whatnot. On the other hand few clients will actually break if you add a new function to the API. Use your judgment.<br />
<br />
Libraries maintained by the GHC team are subject to the GHC validation policy - patches will be tested for validation before committing ([http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/TestingPatches TestingPatches]). Those packages not maintained by the GHC team will probably have a GHC lagging mirror repository that is subject to validation.<br />

[[Category:Proposals| ]]</div>Ashley Yhttps://wiki.haskell.org/index.php?title=Hask&diff=51878Hask2012-09-06T04:54:25Z<p>Ashley Y: /* Hask is not Cartesian closed */</p>
<hr />
<div>'''Hask''' is the [[Category theory|category]] of Haskell types and functions.<br />
<br />
The objects of '''Hask''' are Haskell types, and the morphisms from objects <hask>A</hask> to <hask>B</hask> are Haskell functions of type <hask>A -> B</hask>. The identity morphism for object <hask>A</hask> is <hask>id :: A</hask>, and the composition of morphisms <hask>f</hask> and <hask>g</hask> is <hask>f . g = \x -> f (g x)</hask>.<br />
<br />
== Is '''Hask''' even a category? ==<br />
<br />
Consider:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
undef1 = undefined :: a -> b<br />
undef2 = \_ -> undefined<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Note that these are not the same value:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
seq undef1 () = undefined<br />
seq undef2 () = ()<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
This might be a problem, because <hask>undef1 . id = undef2</hask>. In order to make '''Hask''' a category, we define two functions <hask>f</hask> and <hask>g</hask> as the same morphism if <hask>f x = g x</hask> for all <hask>x</hask>. Thus <hask>undef1</hask> and <hask>undef2</hask> are different ''values'', but the same ''morphism'' in '''Hask'''.<br />
<br />
== '''Hask''' is not Cartesian closed ==<br />
<br />
Actual '''Hask''' does not have sums, products, or an initial object, and <hask>()</hask> is not a terminal object. The Monad identities fail for almost all instances of the Monad class.<br />

<div>'''Hask''' is the [[Category theory|category]] of Haskell types and functions.<br />
<br />
The objects of '''Hask''' are Haskell types, and the morphisms from objects <hask>A</hask> to <hask>B</hask> are Haskell functions of type <hask>A -> B</hask>. The identity morphism for object <hask>A</hask> is <hask>id :: A</hask>, and the composition of morphisms <hask>f</hask> and <hask>g</hask> is <hask>f . g = \x -> f (g x)</hask>.<br />

Note that these are not the same value:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
seq undef1 () = undefined<br />
seq undef2 () = ()<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
This might be a problem, because <hask>undef1 . id = undef2</hask>.

<div>'''Hask''' refers to a [[Category theory|category]] with types as objects and functions between them as morphisms. However, its use is ambiguous. Sometimes it refers to Haskell (''actual '''Hask'''''), and sometimes it refers to some subset of Haskell where no values are bottom and all functions terminate (''platonic '''Hask'''''). The reason for this is that platonic '''Hask''' has lots of nice properties that actual '''Hask''' does not, and is thus easier to reason in. There is a faithful functor from platonic '''Hask''' to actual '''Hask''' allowing programmers to think in the former to write code in the latter.<br />

<div>'''Hask''' refers to a [[Category theory|category]] with types as objects and functions between them as morphisms. However, its use is ambiguous. Sometimes it refers to Haskell (''actual '''Hask'''''), and sometimes it refers to some subset of Haskell where no values are bottom and all functions terminate (''platonic '''Hask'''''). The reason for this is that platonic '''Hask''' has lots of nice properties that actual '''Hask''' does not, and is thus easier to reason in.

'''Category theory''' can be helpful in understanding Haskell's type system. There exists a [[Hask|"Haskell category"]], of which the objects are Haskell types, and the morphisms from types <hask>a</hask> to <hask>b</hask> are Haskell functions of type <hask>a -> b</hask>.<br />
<br />
__TOC__<br />
<br />
The Haskell wikibooks has [http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Haskell/Category_theory an introduction to Category theory], written specifically with Haskell programmers in mind.<br />
<br />
==Definition of a category==<br />
<br />
<br />
A category <math>\mathcal{C}</math>consists of two collections:<br />
<br />
Ob<math>(\mathcal{C})</math>, the objects of <math>\mathcal{C}</math><br />
<br />
Ar<math>(\mathcal{C})</math>, the arrows of <math>\mathcal{C}</math><br />
(which are not the same as [[Arrow]]s defined in [[GHC]])<br />
<br />
Each arrow <math>f</math> in Ar<math>(\mathcal{C})</math> has a<br />
domain, dom <math>f</math>, and a codomain, cod <math>f</math>, each<br />
chosen from Ob<math>(\mathcal{C})</math>. The notation <math>f\colon<br />
A \to B</math> means <math>f</math> is an arrow with domain<br />
<math>A</math> and codomain <math>B</math>. Further, there is a<br />
function <math>\circ</math> called composition, such that <math>g<br />
\circ f</math> is defined only when the codomain of <math>f</math> is<br />
the domain of <math>g</math>, and in this case, <math>g \circ f</math><br />
has the domain of <math>f</math> and the codomain of <math>g</math>. <br />
<br />
In symbols, if <math>f\colon A \to B</math> and <math>g\colon B \to<br />
C</math>, then <math>g \circ f \colon A \to C</math>. <br />
<br />
Also, for each object <math>A</math>, there is an arrow<br />
<math>\mathrm{id}_A\colon A \to A</math>, (often simply denoted as<br />
<math>1</math> or <math>\mathrm{id}</math>, when there is no chance of<br />
confusion). <br />
<br />
===Axioms===<br />
The following axioms must hold for <math>\mathcal{C}</math> to be a category:<br />
<br />
#If <math>f\colon A \to B</math> then <math>f \circ \mathrm{id}_A = \mathrm{id}_B\circ f = f</math> (left and right identity) <br />
#If <math>f\colon A \to B</math> and <math>g \colon B \to C</math> and <math>h \colon C \to D</math>, then <math>h \circ (g \circ f) = (h<br />
\circ g) \circ f</math> (associativity) <br />
<br />
===Examples of categories===<br />
* Set, the category of sets and set functions.<br />
* Mon, the category of monoids and monoid morphisms.<br />
* Monoids are themselves one-object categories.<br />
* Grp, the category of groups and group morphisms.<br />
* Rng, the category of rings and ring morphisms.<br />
* Grph, the category of graphs and graph morphisms.<br />
* Top, the category of topological spaces and continuous maps.<br />
* Preord, the category of preorders and order preserving maps.<br />
* CPO, the category of complete partial orders and continuous functions.<br />
* Cat, the category of categories and functors.<br />
<br />
* [[Hask]]<br />
* the category of data types and functions on data structures <br />
* the category of functions and data flows (~ data flow diagram)<br />
* the category of stateful objects and dependencies (~ object diagram)<br />
* the category of values and value constructors<br />
* the category of states and messages (~ state diagram)<br />

<hr />
<div>'''Hask''' refers to a [[Category theory|category]] with types as objects and functions between them as morphisms. However, its use is ambiguous. Sometimes it refers to Haskell (''actual '''Hask'''''), and sometimes it refers to some subset of Haskell where no values are bottom and all functions terminate (''platonic '''Hask'''''). The reason for this is that platonic '''Hask''' has lots of nice properties that actual '''Hask''' does not, and is thus easier to reason in. There is a faithful functor from platonic '''Hask''' to actual '''Hask''' allowing programmers to think in the former to write code in the latter.<br />
<br />
== '''Hask''' ==<br />
<br />
The objects of '''Hask''' are Haskell types, and the morphisms from objects <hask>A</hask> to <hask>B</hask> are Haskell functions of type <hask>A -> B</hask>. The identity morphism for object <hask>A</hask> is <hask>id :: A</hask>, and the composition of morphisms <hask>f</hask> and <hask>g</hask> is <hask>f . g = \x -> f (g x)</hask>.<br />
<br />
=== Is '''Hask''' even a category? ===<br />
<br />
Consider:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
undef1 = undefined :: a -> b<br />
undef2 = \_ -> undefined<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Note that these are not the same value:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
seq undef1 () = undefined<br />
seq undef2 () = ()<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
This might be a problem, because <hask>undef1 . id = undef2</hask>. In order to make '''Hask''' a category, we define two functions <hask>f</hask> and <hask>g</hask> as the same morphism if <hask>f x = g x</hask> for all <hask>x</hask>. Thus <hask>undef1</hask> and <hask>undef2</hask> are different ''values'', but the same ''morphism'' in '''Hask'''.<br />
<br />
=== '''Hask''' is not Cartesian closed ===<br />
<br />
Actual '''Hask''' does not have sums, products, or an initial object, and <hask>()</hask> is not a terminal object. The Monad identities fail for almost all instances of the Monad class.<br />

<hr />
<div>'''Hask''' refers to a [[Category theory|category]] with types as objects and functions between them as morphisms. However, its use is ambiguous. Sometimes it refers to Haskell (''actual '''Hask'''''), and sometimes it refers to some subset of Haskell where no values are bottom and all functions terminate (''platonic '''Hask'''''). The reason for this is that platonic '''Hask''' has lots of nice properties that actual '''Hask''' does not, and is thus easier to reason in. There is a faithful functor from platonic '''Hask''' to actual '''Hask''' allowing programmers to think in the former to write code in the latter.<br />
<br />
== '''Hask''' ==<br />
<br />
The objects of '''Hask''' are Haskell types, and the morphisms from objects <hask>A</hask> to <hask>B</hask> are Haskell functions of type <hask>A -> B</hask>. The identity morphism for object <hask>A</hask> is <hask>id :: A</hask>, and the composition of morphisms <hask>f</hask> and <hask>g</hask> is <hask>f . g</hask>.<br />
<br />
=== Is '''Hask''' even a category? ===<br />
<br />
Consider:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
undef1 = undefined :: a -> b<br />
undef2 = \_ -> undefined<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Note that these are not the same value:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
seq undef1 () = undefined<br />
seq undef2 () = ()<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
This might be a problem, because <hask>undef1 . id = undef2</hask>. In order to make '''Hask''' a category, we define two functions <hask>f</hask> and <hask>g</hask> as the same morphism if <hask>f a = g a</hask> for all <hask>a</hask>. Thus <hask>undef1</hask> and <hask>undef2</hask> are different ''values'', but the same ''morphism'' in '''Hask'''.<br />
<br />
=== '''Hask''' is not Cartesian closed ===<br />
<br />
Actual '''Hask''' does not have sums, products, or an initial object, and <hask>()</hask> is not a terminal object. The Monad identities fail for almost all instances of the Monad class.<br />

<div>'''Hask''' refers to a [[Category theory|category]] with types as objects and functions between them as morphisms. However, its use is ambiguous. Sometimes it refers to Haskell (''actual '''Hask'''''), and sometimes it refers to some subset of Haskell where no values are bottom and all functions terminate (''platonic '''Hask'''''). The reason for this is that platonic '''Hask''' has lots of nice properties that actual '''Hask''' does not, and is thus easier to reason in. There is a faithful functor from platonic '''Hask''' to actual '''Hask''' allowing programmers to think in the former to write code in the latter.<br />
<br />
== '''Hask''' ==<br />
<br />
Actual '''Hask''' does not have sums, products, or an initial object, and <hask>()</hask> is not a terminal object. The Monad identities fail for almost all instances of the Monad class.<br />

== Math Content ==<br />
<br />
Hi Ashley. I notice you are a sysop for haskellwiki. I'm not sure if this is a good place to ask this, but do you know if there is a reason why math support is not enabled for this wiki? I was planning to add some simple math background for some things and would have liked it to show appropriately. (If it is just because no one was sure on how to configure it, I'd be happy to tell what I had to do for my personal home wiki (same software)).

== haskell.org skin? ==<br />
<br />
Hi Ashley. I hope you're the right person to ask about this. I'm currently setting up a wiki, and I was wondering how you got haskellwiki looking like it does? I really hate the wikipedia look, and I'd like something nice and simple I could tweak. I understand that you can get skins for mediawiki - is the haskell.org look available in this form? - [[User:MikeDodds|MikeDodds]] 12:33, 1 March 2006 (UTC)<br />

== [[Libraries and tools]] copyright status ==<br />
<br />
Dear Ashley Y,<br />
<br />
I saw that the page [[Libraries and tools/Genetic programming]] got a <nowiki>{{unknown copyright}}</nowiki> mark in the recent days during the moving to its own separate page. This mark asks me to resolve the copyright status.<br />
<br />
It was me who wrote the content of this page ([http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/?title=Libraries_and_tools&diff=2265&oldid=2252 here is the diff page showing this]) in February, so I thought it need not be licenced explicitly, it is automatically licenced under [[HaskellWiki:Licensing]].<br />
<br />
Have I to do something?<br />
<br />
Tank You very much in advance<br />
<br />
Best wishes<br />

== Deletion of [[Continuation passing style]] ==<br />
<br />
Dear Ashley,<br />
<br />
Acidentally, I have created a [[Continuation passing style]] page superfluously.<br />
Because a [[Continuation]] article exists already, I suppose the superfluous empty page should be deleted, because its existence can be confusing (e.g. editors linking word "[[Continuation passing style]]" will not get a warning red link any more, but a misleading empty page). I cannot delete the page (only empty it, but it is not enough).<br />
<br />

== Interwiki map ==<br />
<br />
Hi: could you add some stuff to the interwiki map? In [[Haste]], I was trying to interwiki to the English Wikipedia using the usual <nowiki>[[wikipedia:Scintilla]]</nowiki> interwiki link, but it didn't work (nor did en:, or wiki: - which just took one to c2.com). [[User:Gwern|Gwern]]<br />
<br />
== Same logo, less bytes ==<br />
<br />
If you're interested in using it, I shaved 407 bytes off the logo in the upper-left-hand corner of the wiki. It's [[:Image:Haskellwiki_logo_small.png|uploaded here]]. [[User:Olathe|Olathe]] 00:33, 12 August 2008 (UTC)<br />
<br />
== Latex upgrade ==<br />
While testing Pandoc's conversion of LaTeX to MediaWiki markup, I noticed some bugs. Compare [[User:Gwern/kenn]] to [https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/User:Gwern/kenn https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/User:Gwern/kenn]. The haskell.org version features many ugly red sections like '<nowiki>Failed to parse (unknown function\begin): \begin{array}{rclcl} \phi & ::= & P(t_1, \cdots, t_n) \\ & \mid & \neg\phi \\ & \mid & \phi_1 \Rightarrow \phi_2 \\ & \mid & TT & \mid & FF \\ & \mid & \phi_1 \wedge \phi_2 & \mid & \phi_1 \vee \phi_2 \\ & \mid & \forall x.\, \phi & \mid & \exists x.\, \phi \end{array}</nowiki>'.<br />
<br />
John MacFarlane, Pandoc's author, thinks this is because of outdated addons to MediaWiki or MediaWiki itself; this is consistent with the same source text not producing those errors on the English Wikipedia. Could you fix this? --[[User:Gwern|Gwern]] 10:46, 6 September 2008 (UTC)<br />

== Spam & account registration ==<br />
<br />
It has been a while since the spam became a real issue and account registration was disabled. Creating accounts has proven kind of draining for me, even when I pushed byorgey up to be listed first. Is there any chance we could re-enable registration and see whether the spammers have given up?

== Error in Hawiki.php ==<br />
<br />
I'm not sure if this is really causing any issues, but it's kind of alarming: If you look closely, you'll see that (under the hawiki skin) all the pages include essentially this HTML in teh <code>head</code>:<br />
<pre-html><br />
<script type="text/javascript" src="/haskellwiki/index.php?title=-&amp;action=raw&amp;smaxage=0&amp;gen=js&amp;useskin=hawiki"><br />
&lt;!-- site js --><br />
</script><br />
</pre-html><br />
<br />
Unfortunately, what comes back from MediaWiki when the browser asks for http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/index.php?title=-&action=raw&smaxage=0&gen=js&useskin=hawiki is not JavasSript, but instead this:<br />
<pre-html style="white-space: pre-wrap"><br />
<br /><br />
<b>Catchable fatal error</b>: Argument 1 passed to SkinHawiki::initPage() must be an instance of OutputPage, instance of StubObject given, called in /usr/share/mediawiki/includes/RawPage.php on line 165 and defined in <b>/srv/web/wikidata/skin/Hawiki.php</b> on line <b>23</b><br /><br />
</pre><br />
<br />
Similarly, there is a piece of CSS like this:<br />
<pre-css><br />
@import "/haskellwiki/index.php?title=-&action=raw&gen=css&maxage=18000&smaxage=0&useskin=hawiki";<br />
</pre-css><br />
and the same error occurs when the browser asks for http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/index.php?title=-&action=raw&gen=css&maxage=18000&smaxage=0&useskin=hawiki.<br />
<br />
P.S. It's also kind of annoying that most of the custom CSS is in wikistatic ([http://haskell.org/wikistatic/skins//hawiki/main.css hawiki/main.css]), rather than in [[MediaWiki:Common.css]] and [[MediaWiki:Hawiki.css]]. Though, now that I look really closely, I do see that [[MediaWiki:Common.css|Common.css]] not only exists, but even contains a few rules, which is nice!<br />
<br />
P.P.S. It's too bad we don't have the MediaWiki feature whereby users get to extend the skins by putting CSS/JS in subpages of their userpage...<br />

<div>== Math Content ==<br />
<br />
Hi Ashley. I notice you are a sysop for haskellwiki. I'm not sure if this is a good place to ask this, but do you know if there is a reason why math support is not enabled for this wiki? I was planning to add some simple math background for some things and would have liked it to show appropriately. (If it is just because no one was sure on how to configure it, I'd be happy to tell what I had to do for my personal home wiki (same software)).

== haskell.org skin? ==<br />
<br />
Hi Ashley. I hope you're the right person to ask about this. I'm currently setting up a wiki, and I was wondering how you got haskellwiki looking like it does? I really hate the wikipedia look, and I'd like something nice and simple I could tweak. I understand that you can get skins for mediawiki - is the haskell.org look available in this form? - [[User:MikeDodds|MikeDodds]] 12:33, 1 March 2006 (UTC)<br />

== [[Libraries and tools]] copyright status ==<br />
<br />
Dear Ashley Y,<br />
<br />
I saw that the page [[Libraries and tools/Genetic programming]] got a <nowiki>{{unknown copyright}}</nowiki> mark in the recent days during the moving to its own separate page. This mark asks me to resolve the copyright status.<br />
<br />
It was me who wrote the content of this page ([http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/?title=Libraries_and_tools&diff=2265&oldid=2252 here is the diff page showing this]) in February, so I thought it need not be licenced explicitly, it is automatically licenced under [[HaskellWiki:Licensing]].<br />
<br />
Have I to do something?<br />
<br />
Tank You very much in advance<br />
<br />
Best wishes<br />
<br />

== Deletion of [[Continuation passing style]] ==<br />
<br />
Dear Ashley,<br />
<br />
Acidentally, I have created a [[Continuation passing style]] page superfluously.<br />
Because a [[Continuation]] article exists already, I suppose the superfluous empty page should be deleted, because its existence can be confusing (e.g. editors linking word "[[Continuation passing style]]" will not get a warning red link any more, but a misleading empty page). I cannot delete the page (only empty it, but it is not enough).<br />
<br />
Thank You in advance<br />

== Interwiki map ==<br />
<br />
Hi: could you add some stuff to the interwiki map? In [[Haste]], I was trying to interwiki to the English Wikipedia using the usual <nowiki>[[wikipedia:Scintilla]]</nowiki> interwiki link, but it didn't work (nor did en:, or wiki: - which just took one to c2.com). [[User:Gwern|Gwern]]<br />
<br />
== Same logo, less bytes ==<br />
<br />
If you're interested in using it, I shaved 407 bytes off the logo in the upper-left-hand corner of the wiki. It's [[:Image:Haskellwiki_logo_small.png|uploaded here]]. [[User:Olathe|Olathe]] 00:33, 12 August 2008 (UTC)<br />
<br />
== Latex upgrade ==<br />
While testing Pandoc's conversion of LaTeX to MediaWiki markup, I noticed some bugs. Compare [[User:Gwern/kenn]] to [https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/User:Gwern/kenn https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/User:Gwern/kenn]. The haskell.org version features many ugly red sections like '<nowiki>Failed to parse (unknown function\begin): \begin{array}{rclcl} \phi & ::= & P(t_1, \cdots, t_n) \\ & \mid & \neg\phi \\ & \mid & \phi_1 \Rightarrow \phi_2 \\ & \mid & TT & \mid & FF \\ & \mid & \phi_1 \wedge \phi_2 & \mid & \phi_1 \vee \phi_2 \\ & \mid & \forall x.\, \phi & \mid & \exists x.\, \phi \end{array}</nowiki>'.<br />
<br />
John MacFarlane, Pandoc's author, thinks this is because of outdated addons to MediaWiki or MediaWiki itself; this is consistent with the same source text not producing those errors on the English Wikipedia. Could you fix this? --[[User:Gwern|Gwern]] 10:46, 6 September 2008 (UTC)<br />

== Spam & account registration ==<br />
<br />
It has been a while since the spam became a real issue and account registration was disabled. Creating accounts has proven kind of draining for me, even when I pushed byorgey up to be listed first. Is there any chance we could re-enable registration and see whether the spammers have given up? We are surely driving away potential contributors with such a laborious sign-up procedure. --[[User:Gwern|Gwern]] 00:38, 27 February 2010 (UTC)<br />

== Error in Hawiki.php ==<br />
<br />
I'm not sure if this is really causing any issues, but it's kind of alarming: If you look closely, you'll see that (under the hawiki skin) all the pages include essentially this HTML in teh <code>head</code>:<br />
<pre-html><br />
<script type="text/javascript" src="/haskellwiki/index.php?title=-&amp;action=raw&amp;smaxage=0&amp;gen=js&amp;useskin=hawiki"><br />
&lt;!-- site js --><br />
</script><br />
</pre-html><br />
<br />
Unfortunately, what comes back from MediaWiki when the browser asks for http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/index.php?title=-&action=raw&smaxage=0&gen=js&useskin=hawiki is not JavasSript, but instead this:<br />
<pre-html style="white-space: pre-wrap"><br />
<br /><br />
<b>Catchable fatal error</b>: Argument 1 passed to SkinHawiki::initPage() must be an instance of OutputPage, instance of StubObject given, called in /usr/share/mediawiki/includes/RawPage.php on line 165 and defined in <b>/srv/web/wikidata/skin/Hawiki.php</b> on line <b>23</b><br /><br />
</pre><br />
<br />
Similarly, there is a piece of CSS like this:<br />
<pre-css><br />
@import "/haskellwiki/index.php?title=-&action=raw&gen=css&maxage=18000&smaxage=0&useskin=hawiki";<br />
</pre-css><br />
and the same error occurs when the browser asks for http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/index.php?title=-&action=raw&gen=css&maxage=18000&smaxage=0&useskin=hawiki.<br />
<br />
P.S. It's also kind of annoying that most of the custom CSS is in wikistatic ([http://haskell.org/wikistatic/skins//hawiki/main.css hawiki/main.css]), rather than in [[MediaWiki:Common.css]] and [[MediaWiki:Hawiki.css]]. Though, now that I look really closely, I do see that [[MediaWiki:Common.css|Common.css]] not only exists, but even contains a few rules, which is nice!<br />
<br />
P.P.S. It's too bad we don't have the MediaWiki feature whereby users get to extend the skins by putting CSS/JS in subpages of their userpage...<br />

<br />
If you're interested in using it, I shaved 407 bytes off the logo in the upper-left-hand corner of the wiki. It's [[:Image:Haskellwiki_logo_small.png|uploaded here]]. [[User:Olathe|Olathe]] 00:33, 12 August 2008 (UTC)<br />
<br />
== Latex upgrade ==<br />
While testing Pandoc's conversion of LaTeX to MediaWiki markup, I noticed some bugs. Compare [[User:Gwern/kenn]] to [https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/User:Gwern/kenn https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/User:Gwern/kenn]. The haskell.org version features many ugly red sections like '<nowiki>Failed to parse (unknown function\begin): \begin{array}{rclcl} \phi & ::= & P(t_1, \cdots, t_n) \\ & \mid & \neg\phi \\ & \mid & \phi_1 \Rightarrow \phi_2 \\ & \mid & TT & \mid & FF \\ & \mid & \phi_1 \wedge \phi_2 & \mid & \phi_1 \vee \phi_2 \\ & \mid & \forall x.\, \phi & \mid & \exists x.\, \phi \end{array}</nowiki>'.<br />
<br />
John MacFarlane, Pandoc's author, thinks this is because of outdated addons to MediaWiki or MediaWiki itself; this is consistent with the same source text not producing those errors on the English Wikipedia. Could you fix this? --[[User:Gwern|Gwern]] 10:46, 6 September 2008 (UTC)<br />
<br />
== Request for MediaWiki Upgrade ==<br />
I request that you update the MediaWiki software to a more recent version. Thanks in advance. &mdash;[[User:HowardBGolden|HowardBGolden]] 08:17, 4 October 2008 (UTC)<br />

== Sitenotice ==<br />
[[MediaWiki:Sitenotice]] needs editing badly; I have seen many people assume that no accounts are being created. Any change in wording would be better - how about 'To request an account, click here'? --[[User:Gwern|Gwern]] 13:36, 6 August 2009 (UTC)<br />

== Spam & account registration ==<br />
<br />
It has been a while since the spam became a real issue and account registration was disabled. Creating accounts has proven kind of draining for me, even when I pushed byorgey up to be listed first. Is there any chance we could re-enable registration and see whether the spammers have given up? We are surely driving away potential contributors with such a laborious sign-up procedure. --[[User:Gwern|Gwern]] 00:38, 27 February 2010 (UTC)<br />

<div>'''darcs''' is a peer-to-peer revision control system, written in Haskell. It is the standard RCS of the Haskell community.<br />
<br />
== Understanding darcs ==<br />
<br />
You can think of a darcs repository as containing these things:<br />
<br />
* '''Patches''': a patch is a collection of changes that forms the unit of synchronisation with other repositories<br />

* '''Unmanaged items''' (files and directories)<br />
* '''Boring items''': anything with a name matched in <tt>_darcs/prefs/boring</tt><br />

<br />
*<tt>darcs unrevert</tt>: take changes out of the unrevert cache and add them to the unrecorded changes.<br />

[[Category:Tools]]</div>Ashley Yhttps://wiki.haskell.org/index.php?title=Talk:What_a_Monad_is_not&diff=31788Talk:What a Monad is not2009-11-23T23:44:45Z<p>Ashley Y: </p>
<hr />
<div>==Nicolas Pouillard Comments==<br />
<br />
I disagree with:<br />
"So ordering is not in any way essential to what a monad is."<br />
<br />
There is commutative monads, great! Other than that the order is important. Moreover there is nothing wrong to see >>= as a sequencing operator.<br />
<br />
I also disagree the "IO is impure" paragraph:<br />
Indeed only IO will trigger visible side effects, but this is only due to the common evaluation of IO primitives. Moreover I would say that only the runtime system is impure because it does reduce 'main :: IO ()', other than that we are<br />
just building a computation plan in a pure way.<br />
<br />
Although I agree that the common issue is too mix monad and impurity, and the impurity question is only releated to IO.<br />
<br />
== "Monads are not values" ==<br />
<br />
Yes they are! But they are not of the type of their arguments. For instance "return 3" is a value that has (or can have) type "IO Int". But it is not a value of type Int. &mdash;[[User:Ashley Y|Ashley Y]] 23:44, 23 November 2009 (UTC)</div>Ashley Yhttps://wiki.haskell.org/index.php?title=User:Ashley_Y&diff=29609User:Ashley Y2009-08-18T07:59:28Z<p>Ashley Y: compilers</p>

<div>== Math Content ==<br />

Hi Ashley. I notice you are a sysop for haskellwiki. I'm not sure if this is a good place to ask this, but do you know if there is a reason why math support is not enabled for this wiki? I was planning to add some simple math background for some things and would have liked it to show appropriately. (If it is just because no one was sure on how to configure it, I'd be happy to tell what I had to do for my personal home wiki (same software)). [[User:BrettGiles|BrettGiles]] 22:16, 25 February 2006 (UTC)<br />

== haskell.org skin? ==<br />
<br />
Hi Ashley. I hope you're the right person to ask about this. I'm currently setting up a wiki, and I was wondering how you got haskellwiki looking like it does? I really hate the wikipedia look, and I'd like something nice and simple I could tweak. I understand that you can get skins for mediawiki - is the haskell.org look available in this form? - [[User:MikeDodds|MikeDodds]] 12:33, 1 March 2006 (UTC)<br />

== [[Libraries and tools]] copyright status ==<br />
<br />
Dear Ashley Y,<br />
<br />
I saw that the page [[Libraries and tools/Genetic programming]] got a <nowiki>{{unknown copyright}}</nowiki> mark in the recent days during the moving to its own separate page. This mark asks me to resolve the copyright status.<br />
<br />
It was me who wrote the content of this page ([http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/?title=Libraries_and_tools&diff=2265&oldid=2252 here is the diff page showing this]) in February, so I thought it need not be licenced explicitly, it is automatically licenced under [[HaskellWiki:Licensing]].<br />

== Deletion of [[Continuation passing style]] ==<br />
<br />
Dear Ashley,<br />
<br />
Acidentally, I have created a [[Continuation passing style]] page superfluously.<br />
Because a [[Continuation]] article exists already, I suppose the superfluous empty page should be deleted, because its existence can be confusing (e.g. editors linking word "[[Continuation passing style]]" will not get a warning red link any more, but a misleading empty page). I cannot delete the page (only empty it, but it is not enough).<br />
<br />
Thank You in advance<br />

== Deletion of [[Continuation passing style]] ==<br />
<br />
Dear Ashley,<br />
<br />
Acidentally, I have created a [[Continuation passing style]] page superfluously.<br />
Because a [[Continuation]] article exists already, I suppose the superfluous empty page should be deleted, because its existence can be confusing (e.g. editors linking word "[[Continuation passing style]]" will not get a warning red link any more, but a misleading empty page). I cannot delete the page (only empty it, but it is not enough).<br />
<br />
Thank You in advance<br />

== Interwiki map ==<br />
<br />
Hi: could you add some stuff to the interwiki map? In [[Haste]], I was trying to interwiki to the English Wikipedia using the usual <nowiki>[[wikipedia:Scintilla]]</nowiki> interwiki link, but it didn't work (nor did en:, or wiki: - which just took one to c2.com). [[User:Gwern|Gwern]]<br />

If you're interested in using it, I shaved 407 bytes off the logo in the upper-left-hand corner of the wiki. It's [[:Image:Haskellwiki_logo_small.png|uploaded here]]. [[User:Olathe|Olathe]] 00:33, 12 August 2008 (UTC)<br />

While testing Pandoc's conversion of LaTeX to MediaWiki markup, I noticed some bugs.

<div>== Math Content ==<br />
<br />
Hi Ashley. I notice you are a sysop for haskellwiki. I'm not sure if this is a good place to ask this, but do you know if there is a reason why math support is not enabled for this wiki? I was planning to add some simple math background for some things and would have liked it to show appropriately. (If it is just because no one was sure on how to configure it, I'd be happy to tell what I had to do for my personal home wiki (same software)).

:Now switched on. If it's not showing up on a page, purge the page by adding <tt>&amp;action=purge</tt> to the end of the URL. &mdash;[[User:Ashley Y|Ashley Y]] 00:20, 27 February 2006 (UTC)<br />

== haskell.org skin? ==<br />
<br />
Hi Ashley. I hope you're the right person to ask about this. I'm currently setting up a wiki, and I was wondering how you got haskellwiki looking like it does? I really hate the wikipedia look, and I'd like something nice and simple I could tweak. I understand that you can get skins for mediawiki - is the haskell.org look available in this form? - [[User:MikeDodds|MikeDodds]] 12:33, 1 March 2006 (UTC)<br />
<br />
:I suppose I should publish the skin file somehow. I'm not sure the best way. &mdash;[[User:Ashley Y|Ashley Y]] 09:44, 25 March 2006 (UTC)<br />
<br />
:OK, see [[HaskellWiki:Site software]]. &mdash;[[User:Ashley Y|Ashley Y]] 01:15, 20 September 2006 (UTC)<br />

== [[Libraries and tools]] copyright status ==<br />
<br />
Dear Ashley Y,<br />
<br />
I saw that the page [[Libraries and tools/Genetic programming]] got a <nowiki>{{unknown copyright}}</nowiki> mark in the recent days during the moving to its own separate page. This mark asks me to resolve the copyright status.<br />
<br />
It was me who wrote the content of this page ([http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/?title=Libraries_and_tools&diff=2265&oldid=2252 here is the diff page showing this]) in February, so I thought it need not be licenced explicitly, it is automatically licenced under [[HaskellWiki:Licensing]].<br />
<br />
Have I to do something?<br />
<br />
Tank You very much in advance<br />
<br />
Best wishes<br />
