== Projects ==<br />
# [http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Treeviz TreeViz] - a computation breakdown visualization project hosted by [mailto:capn.freako@gmail.com David Banas]<br />
# [https://github.com/haskell/haskell-platform/tree/new-build Haskell Platform, the new build] - We are working on a new build system for all of Haskell Platform: Generating tarballs, installers, and even the web site from one single Shake based build tool. Lots to do! See Mark Lentczner.<br />
# [https://github.com/conal/lambda-ccc/ lambda-ccc] - a project for compiling Haskell to hardware. I'm doing this work for my day job, but the development is open, and the result will be shared freely. The project starts with a GHC plugin that transforms Core in order to generate a convenient-to-manipulate GADT representation of the original. Then convert to an <code>Arrow</code>-like algebraic interface that can be interpreted in various ways, including as circuits. See [mailto:conal@conal.net Conal Elliott].<br />
# [https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/8624#comment:12 see what Template Haskell generates]. For those interested in hacking on the GHC compiler, see Greg Weber<br />
# [https://snowdrift.coop Snowdrift.coop] — a community-engagement and fundraising platform strictly for Free/Libre/Open projects, built on Yesod; Head developer David Thomas and co-founder (and Haskell beginner) Aaron Wolf will be on hand. We have a wide range of projects at different levels and sizes to hack on.<br />
<br />
== IRC channel ==<br />

We'll be hanging out on #bayhac on FreeNode.<br />

<div>The IDE world in Haskell is incomplete, but is in motion. There are many choices. When choosing your IDE, there are the following things to consider.<br />
<br />
== Notable features of interest to consider ==<br />
<br />
This is a list of features that any Haskell IDE could or should have. The IDEs listed above generally support some subset of these features. Please add more to this list if you think of anything. In future this should be expanded into separate headings with more description of how they would desirably work.<br />
<br />
* Syntax highlighting (e.g. for Haskell, Cabal, Literate Haskell, Core, etc.)<br />
* Macros (e.g. inserting imports/aligning/sorting imports, aligning up text, transposing/switching/moving things around)<br />
* Type information (e.g. type at point, info at point, type of expression)<br />
* Intellisense/completion (e.g. jump-to-definition, who-calls, calls-who, search by type, completion, etc.)<br />
* Project management (e.g. understanding of Cabal, configuration/building/installing, package sandboxing)<br />
* Interactive REPL (e.g. GHCi/Hugs interaction, expression evaluation and such)<br />
* Knowledge of Haskell in the GHCi/GHC side (e.g. understanding error types, the REPL, REPL objects, object inspection)<br />
* Indentation support (e.g. tab cycle, simple back-forward indentation, whole area indentation, structured editing, etc.)<br />
* Proper syntactic awareness of Haskell (e.g. with a proper parser and proper editor transpositions a la the structured editors of the 80s and Isabel et al)<br />
* Documentation support (e.g. ability to call up documentation of symbol or module, either in the editor, or in the browser)<br />
* Debugger support (e.g. stepping, breakpoints, etc.)<br />
* Refactoring support (e.g. symbol renaming, hlint, etc.)<br />
* Templates (e.g. snippets, zencoding type stuff, filling in all the cases of a case, etc.)<br />

=== [http://www.haskell.org/visualhaskell Visual Haskell] ===<br />
:Visual Haskell is a complete development environment for Haskell software, based on Microsoft's [http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us Microsoft Visual Studio] platform. Visual Haskell integrates with the Visual Studio editor to provide interactive features to aid Haskell development, and it enables the construction of projects consisting of multiple Haskell modules, using the Cabal building/packaging infrastructure.<br />
<br />
=== [http://eclipsefp.github.com/ EclipseFP plugin for Eclipse IDE] ===<br />
:Eclipse is an open, extensible IDE platform for "everything and nothing in particular". It is implemented in Java and runs on several platforms. The Java IDE built on top of it has already become very popular among Java developers. The Haskell tools extend it to support editing (syntax coloring, code assist), compiling, and running Haskell programs from within the IDE. In more details, it features:<br />
:* Syntax highlighting and errors/warning highlighting<br />
:* A module browser showing all installed packages, their modules and the contents of the modules (functions, types, etc.)<br />
:* Integration with [http://www.haskell.org/hoogle/ Hoogle]: select an identifier in your code, press F4 and see the results in hoogle<br />
:* Code navigation: from within a Haskell source file, jump to the file where a symbol in declared, or everywhere a symbol is used (type sensitive search, not just a text search)<br />
:* Outline view: quickly jump to definitions in your file<br />
:* Quick fixes on common errors and import management<br />
:* A cabal file editor and integration with Cabal (uses cabal configure, cabal build under the covers), and a graphical view of installed packages<br />
:* Integration with GHCi: launch GHCi inside Eclipse on any module<br />
:* Integration with the GHCi debugger: performs the GHCi debugging commands for you from the standard Eclipse debugging interface<br />
:* Integration with [http://community.haskell.org/~ndm/hlint/ HLint]: gives you HLint warning on building and allows you to quick fix them<br />
:* Integration with [https://github.com/jaspervdj/stylish-haskell Stylish-Haskell]: format your code with stylish-haskell<br />
:* Test support: shows results of test-framework based test suite in a graphical format. HTF support to come soon.<br />
<br />
=== [http://colorer.sourceforge.net/eclipsecolorer/index.html Colorer plugin for Eclipse IDE] ===<br />
:Syntax highlighting in Eclipse can be achieved using the Colorer plugin. This is more light weight than using the EclipseFP plugin which has much functionality but can be messy to install and has sometimes been a bit shaky.<br />
<br />
:Eclipse Colorer is a plugin that enables syntax highlighting for a wide range of languages. It uses its own XML-based language for describing syntactic regions of languages. It does not include support for Haskell by default, but this can be added using the syntax description files attached below.<br />
<br />
:<b>Installation instructions</b><br />
:# Install the Colorer from the update site <code>http://colorer.sf.net/eclipsecolorer/</code> (for more detailed instructions see the project page).<br />
:# Download the Haskell syntax description files in [http://www.haskell.org/wikiupload/1/16/Haskell_Eclipse_Colorer.tar.gz Haskell_Eclipse_Colorer.tar.gz].<br />
:#Extract its contents (haskell.hrc and proto.hrc) into the following directory (overwriting proto.hrc): <code>eclipse_installation_dir/plugins/net.sf.colorer_0.9.9/colorer/hrc</code> (sometimes the wiki seems to create a nesting tar file, so you might have to unpack twise).<br />
:# Finished. A restart of Eclipse might be required. .hs files should open with syntax highlighting.<br />
<br />
:<b>Tips</b><br />
:* If .hs files open with another kind of syntax highlighting check that they are associated with the Colorer Editor (Preferences -> General -> Editors -> File Associations). Or right click on them and choose Open With -> Other -> Colorer Editor.<br />
:* Sometimes the highlighting gets confused. Then it might help to press Ctrl+R and re-colour the editor.<br />
:* Use the Word Completion feature (Shift+Alt+7) as a poor man's content assist.<br />
:* Use the standard External Tools feature in Eclipse to invoke the compiler from inside the IDE.<br />
:* Use the Block selection feature (Shift+Alt+A) to insert/remove line comments on multiple lines at the same time.<br />
:* Some other useful standard Eclipse features include the Open resource command (Ctrl+Shift+R), the File search command (Ctrl+H) and the bookmarks feature (Edit -> Add bookmark). Make sure to check Include in next/prev navigation box (Windows -> Preferences -> General -> Editors -> Text Editors -> Annotations -> Bookmarks).<br />
<br />
=== [[Leksah]] ===<br />
:Leksah is an IDE for Haskell written in Haskell. Leksah is intended as a practical tool to support the Haskell development process. It is an pre-release phase with bugs and open ends but actively developed and moving quickly. Hopefully, Leksah will already be interesting, useful and fun. Leksah uses GTK+ as GUI Toolkit with the gtk2hs binding. It is platform independent and should run on any platform where GTK+, gtk2hs and GHC can be installed. I have tested it on Windows and Linux. It only supports GHC.<br />
<br />
"I found Leksah less than satisfactory on OS X Lion. I could not figure out how to reference Test.Unit in a very simple program after several hours of trying to find the right settings in Leksah, and Leksah crashes a lot. I was able to build the same program in Eclipse within a few minutes of installing Eclipse and [http://eclipsefp.github.com/ Haskell support for Eclipse]." -- Doug Ransom<br />
<br />
- is the above still relevant? I did have to read the manual, the section concerning setting up a project (including dependencies), as leksah requires you to, but did not notice any issues, described above. Stability does not seem to be an issue either. -- Vladimir Lopatin.<br />
<br />
=== [http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/HIDE hIDE] ===<br />
:hIDE is a GUI-based Haskell IDE written using gtk+hs. It does not include an editor but instead interfaces with NEdit, vim or GNU emacs.<br />
<br />
=== [http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/HIDE hIDE-2] ===<br />
:Through the dark ages many a programmer has longed for the ultimate tool. In response to this most unnerving craving, of which we ourselves have had maybe more than our fair share, the dynamic trio of #Haskellaniacs (dons, dcoutts and Lemmih) hereby announce, to the relief of the community, that a fetus has been conceived: ''hIDE - the Haskell Integrated Development Environment''. So far the unborn integrates source code recognition and a chameleon editor, resenting these in a snappy gtk2 environment. Although no seer has yet predicted the date of birth of our hIDEous creature, we hope that the mere knowledge of its existence will spread peace of mind throughout the community as oil on troubled waters.

=== [http://web.archive.org/web/20060213161530/http://www.students.cs.uu.nl/people/rjchaaft/JCreator/ JCreator with Haskell support] ===<br />
: <b>N.B. The link above is to the Wayback Machine (Web Archive); it seem that JCreator is no longer supported.</b><br />
:JCreator is a highly customizable Java IDE for Windows. Features include extensive project support, fully customizable toolbars (including the images of user tools) and menus, increase/decrease indent for a selected block of text (tab/shift+tab respectively). The Haskell support module adds syntax highlighting for Haskell files and WinHugs, hugs, a static checker (if you double click on the error message, JCreator will jump to the right file and line and highlight it yellow) and the Haskell 98 Report as tools. Platforms: Win95, Win98, WinNT and Win2000 (only Win95 not tested yet). Size: 6MB. JCreator is a trademark of Xinox Software; Copyright &copy; 2000 Xinox Software. The Haskell support module is made by Rijk-Jan van Haaften.<br />

=== [http://kdevelop.org/ KDevelop] ===<br />
:This IDE supports many languages. For Haskell it currently supports project management, syntax highlighting, building (with GHC) & executing within the IDE.<br />
<br />
=== [[haste]] - Haskell TurboEdit ===<br />
:haste - Haskell TurboEdit - was an IDE for the functional programming language Haskell, written in Haskell.<br />
<br />
=== [http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/projects/vital/ Vital] ===<br />
:Vital is a visual programming environment. It is particularly intended for supporting the open-ended, incremental style of development often preferred by end users (engineers, scientists, analysts, etc.).<br />
<br />
=== [http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/projects/pivotal/ Pivotal] ===<br />
:Pivotal 0.025 is an early prototype of a Vital-like environment for Haskell. Unlike Vital, however, Pivotal is implemented entirely in Haskell. The implementation is based on the use of the hs-plugins library to allow dynamic compilation and evaluation of Haskell expressions together with the gtk2hs library for implementing the GUI.<br />

The list below is incomplete. Please add to it with whatever you think of. This list should be expanded into sections, as above, with more details, with links to the actual documentation of the described features.<br />
<br />
* Vim — '''PROS:''' Free. Works on Windows. Works in terminal. Decent alignment support. Tag-based completion and jumps. Very good syntax highlighting, flymake (via Syntastic), Cabal integration, Hoogle. Documentation for symbol at point '''CONS:''' Arcane, difficult for new users. Some complain of bad indentation support.<br />
* [http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Haskell_mode_for_Emacs Emacs]— '''PROS:''' Free. Works on Windows. Works in terminal. Decent alignment, indentation, syntax highlighting. Limited type information (type and info of name at point). Cabal/GHC/GHCi awareness and Haskell-aware REPL. Completion and jump-to-definition (via ETAGS). Documentation of symbol at point. Hoogle. Documentation for symbol at point. Flymake (error checking on the fly). '''CONS:''' Arcane, difficult for new users.<br />
* Sublime — '''PROS:''' Works on Windows. '''CONS:''' Poor alignment support (though [http://www.reddit.com/r/haskell/comments/ts8fi/haskell_ides_emacs_vim_and_sublime_oh_my_opinions/c4pair1 there are packages] to do indentation a little better). Proprietary.<br />
* [[Yi]] — '''PROS:''' Written in Haskell. Works in terminal. '''CONS:''' Very immature, lacking features. Problems building generally, especially on Windows.<br />
* [http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Leksah Leksah] — '''PROS:''' Syntax highlighting. Understands Cabal, Module browser, dependency knowledge, documentation display inside the IDE, jump-to-definition, flymake (error checking on the fly), limited evaluation of snippets, scratch buffer. Autocompletion. Not an arcane interface a la Emacs/Vim. '''CONS:''' Doesn't have a decent REPL. Are there any other cons? — This should be moved to the section above.<br />

<br />
=== [https://www.fpcomplete.com/business/haskell-center/overview/ FP Haskell Center] ===<br />
<br />
FP Complete has developed a commercial Haskell IDE.<br />
<br />
It's in the cloud, and comes with all of the libraries on Stackage ready to go. (Basically, the Haskell Platform on steroids.)<br />
<br />
It's "in the cloud," which has its pros and cons. The editor is entirely in your browser, and has integration with Github. One particularly cool feature is that you can spin up temporary web servers to test out the Haskell-powered website you might be coding up. It's really easy, and you can pay for FP Complete to host your permanent application, too.<br />
<br />
There's a free trial, with free academic licenses and paid commercial licenses. There will be "personal" licenses in a few weeks (from early Sept 2013) as well, since the commercial pricing is a bit steep for hobbyists.<br />

=== [https://www.fpcomplete.com/business/haskell-center/overview/ FP Haskell Center] ===<br />
<br />
FP Complete has developed a commercial Haskell IDE.<br />
<br />
It's in the cloud, and comes with all of the libraries on Stackage ready to go. (Basically, the Haskell Platform on steroids.)<br />
<br />
It's "in the cloud," which has its pros and cons. The editor is entirely in your browser, and has integration with Github. One particularly cool feature is that you can spin up temporary web servers to test out the Haskell-powered website you might be coding up. It's really easy, and you can pay for FP Complete to host your permanent application, too.<br />
<br />
There's a free trial, with free academic licenses and paid commercial licenses. According to a recent email from FP Complete, there will be "personal" licenses in a few weeks as well, since the commercial pricing is a bit steep for hobbyists.<br />

* [[hIDE]], now apparently orphaned</div>Drb226https://wiki.haskell.org/LiftingLifting2013-08-12T22:41:22Z<p>Drb226: /* Arrow lifting */ type signature of arr was missing parens</p>
<hr />
<div>Lifting is a concept which allows you to transform a function into a corresponding function within another (usually more general) setting. <br />
<br />
== Lifting in general ==<br />
<br />
We usually start with a (covariant) [[functor]], for simplicity we will consider the Pair functor first. Haskell doesn't allow a <hask>type Pair a = (a, a)</hask> to be a functor instance, so we define our own Pair [[type]] instead.<br />
<haskell><br />
data Pair a = Pair a a deriving Show<br />
instance Functor Pair where<br />
fmap f (Pair x y) = Pair (f x) (f y)<br />
</haskell><br />
If you look at the type of <hask>fmap</hask> (<hask>Functor f => (a -> b) -> (f a -> f b)</hask>), you will notice that <hask>fmap</hask> already is a lifting operation: It transforms a function between simple types <hask>a</hask> and <hask>b</hask> into a function between pairs of these types.<br />
<haskell><br />
lift :: (a -> b) -> Pair a -> Pair b<br />
lift = fmap<br />
<br />
plus2 :: Pair Int -> Pair Int<br />
plus2 = lift (+2)<br />
-- plus2 (Pair 2 3) ---> Pair 4 5<br />
</haskell><br />
Note, however, that not all functions between <hask>Pair a</hask> and <hask>Pair b</hask> can constructed as a lifted function (e.g. <hask>\(x, _) -> (x, 0)</hask> can't).<br />
<br />
A functor can only lift functions of exactly one variable, but we want to lift other functions, too:<br />
<haskell><br />
lift0 :: a -> Pair a<br />
lift0 x = Pair x x<br />
<br />
lift2 :: (a -> b -> r) -> (Pair a -> Pair b -> Pair r)<br />
lift2 f (Pair x1 x2) (Pair y1 y2) = Pair (f x1 y1) (f x2 y2)<br />
<br />
plus :: Pair Int -> Pair Int -> Pair Int<br />
plus = lift2 (+)<br />
-- plus (Pair 1 2) (Pair 3 4) ---> Pair 4 6<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
In a similar way, we can define lifting operations for all containers that have "a fixed size", for example for the functions from <hask>Double</hask> to any value <hask>((->) Double)</hask>, which might be thought of as values that are varying over time (given as <hask>Double</hask>). The function <hask> \t -> if t < 2.0 then 0 else 2 </hask> would then represent a value which switches at time 2.0 from 0 to 2. Using lifting, such functions can be manipulated in a very high-level way. In fact, this kind of lifting operation is already defined. <hask>Control.Monad.Reader</hask> (see [[MonadReader]]) provides a <hask>Functor</hask>, <hask>Applicative</hask>, <hask>Monad</hask>, <hask>MonadFix</hask> and <hask>MonadReader</hask> instance for the type <hask>(->) r</hask>. The <hask>liftM</hask> (see below) functions of this [[monad]] are precisely the lifting operations we are searching for.<br />
<br />
If the containers don't have fixed size, it's not always clear how to make lifting operations for them. The <hask>[]</hask> - type could be lifted using the <hask>zipWith</hask>-family of functions or using <hask>liftM</hask> from the list monad, for example.<br />
<br />
== Applicative lifting ==<br />
<br />
This should only provide a definition what lifting means (in the usual cases, not in the arrow case). It's not a suggestion for an implementation. I start with the (simplest?) basic operations <hask>zipL</hask>, which combines to containers into a single one and <hask>zeroL</hask>, which gives a standard container for ().<br />
<haskell><br />
class Functor f => Liftable f where<br />
zipL :: f a -> f b -> f (a, b)<br />
zeroL :: f ()<br />
<br />
liftL :: Liftable f => (a -> b) -> (f a -> f b)<br />
liftL = fmap<br />
<br />
liftL2 :: Liftable f => (a -> b -> c) -> (f a -> f b -> f c)<br />
liftL2 f x y = fmap (uncurry f) $ zipL x y<br />
<br />
liftL3 :: Liftable f => (a -> b -> c -> d) -> (f a -> f b -> f c -> f d)<br />
liftL3 f x y z = fmap (uncurry . uncurry $ f) $ zipL (zipL x y) z<br />
<br />
liftL0 :: Liftable f => a -> f a<br />
liftL0 x = fmap (const x) zeroL <br />
<br />
appL :: Liftable f => f (a -> b) -> f a -> f b<br />
appL = liftL2 ($)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
We need to postulate a few laws so that the definitions make sense. (Are they complete and/or minimal?)<br />
<haskell><br />
assoc :: ((a, b), c) -> (a, (b, c))<br />
assoc ~(~(x, y), z) = (x, (y, z))<br />
<br />
{-<br />
Identity:<br />
fmap snd $ zipL zeroL x === x<br />
fmap fst $ zipL x zeroL === x<br />
<br />
Associativity:<br />
fmap assoc $ zipL (zipL x y) $ z === zipL x $ zipL y z<br />
-}<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Today we have the <hask>Applicative</hask> class that provides [[Applicative functor]]s. It is equivalent to the <hask>Liftable</hask> class.<br />
<haskell><br />
pure = liftL0<br />
(<*>) = appL<br />
<br />
zeroL = pure ()<br />
zipL = liftA2 (,)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
In principle, <hask>Applicative</hask> should be a superclass of <hask>Monad</hask>, but chronologically <hask>Functor</hask> and <hask>Monad</hask> were before <hask>Applicative</hask>.<br />
Unfortunately, inserting <hask>Applicative</hask> between <hask>Functor</hask> and <hask>Monad</hask> in the subclass hierarchy would break a lot of existing code and thus has not been done as of today (2011). This is still true as of Jan 2013.<br />
<br />
== Monad lifting ==<br />
<br />
Lifting is often used together with [[monad]]s. The members of the <hask>liftM</hask>-family take a function and perform the corresponding computation within the monad.<br />
<haskell><br />
return :: (Monad m) => a -> m a<br />
liftM :: (Monad m) => (a1 -> r) -> m a1 -> m r<br />
liftM2 :: (Monad m) => (a1 -> a2 -> r) -> m a1 -> m a2 -> m r<br />
</haskell><br />
Consider for example the list monad ([[MonadList]]). It performs a [[Non-determinism |nondeterministic calculation]], returning all possible results. <hask>liftM2</hask> just turns a deterministic function into a nondeterministic one:<br />
<haskell><br />
plus :: [Int] -> [Int] -> [Int]<br />
plus = liftM2 (+)<br />
-- plus [1,2,3] [3,6,9] ---> [4,7,10, 5,8,11, 6,9,12]<br />
-- plus [1..] [] ---> _|_ (i.e., keeps on calculating forever)<br />
-- plus [] [1..] ---> []<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Every <hask>Monad</hask> can be made an instance of <hask>Liftable</hask> using the following implementations:<br />
<haskell><br />
{-# OPTIONS -fglasgow-exts #-}<br />
{-# LANGUAGE AllowUndecidableInstances #-}<br />
import Control.Monad<br />
<br />
instance (Functor m, Monad m) => Liftable m where <br />
zipL = liftM2 (\x y -> (x,y))<br />
zeroL = return ()<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Lifting becomes especially interesting when there are more levels you can lift between. <hask>Control.Monad.Trans</hask> (see [[Monad transformer]]s) defines a class<br />
<haskell><br />
class MonadTrans t where<br />
lift :: Monad m => m a -> t m a -- lifts a value from the inner monad m to the transformed monad t m<br />
-- could be called lift0<br />
</haskell><br />
lift takes the side effects of a monadic computation within the inner monad <hask>m</hask> and lifts them into the transformed monad <hask>t m</hask>. We can easily define functions which lift functions between inner monads to functions between transformed monads. Then we can perform three different lifting operations:<br />
<hask>liftM</hask> can be used both to transform a pure function into a function between inner monads and to a function between transformed monads, and finally lift transforms from the inner monad to the transformed monad. Because of the purity of Haskell, we can only lift "up".<br />
<br />
== Arrow lifting ==<br />
<br />
Until now, we have only considered lifting from functions to other functions. John Hughes' arrows (see [[Understanding arrows]]) are a generalization of computation that aren't functions anymore. An arrow <hask>a b c</hask> stands for a computation which transforms values of type <hask>b</hask> to values of type <hask>c</hask>. The basic primitive <hask>arr</hask>, aka <hask>pure</hask>,<br />
<haskell><br />
arr :: (Arrow a) => (b -> c) -> a b c<br />
</haskell><br />
is also a lifting operation.<br />

<br />
<blockquote><br />
<p>''[I]t seems like every programmer who ''gets'' monads posts a tutorial about them. (And each post begins with: There’s already a lot of monad tutorials on the Internet, but...) The reason is that ''getting'' monads it’s like a spiritual experience that you want to share with others.'' (Bartosz Milewski)</p><br />

<br />
<blockquote><br />
<p>''[I]t seems like every programmer who ''gets'' monads posts a tutorial about them. (And each post begins with: There’s already a lot of monad tutorials on the Internet, but...)

<hr />
<div>[[Category:Idioms]]<br />
<br />
'''Memoization''' is a technique for storing values of a function instead of recomputing them each time the function is called.<br />
<br />
== Memoization without recursion ==<br />
<br />
You can just write a memoization function using a data structure that is suitable for your application.<br />
We don't go into the details of this case.<br />
If you want a general solution for several types,<br />
you need a type class, say <hask>Memoizable</hask>.<br />
<haskell><br />
memoize :: Memoizable a => (a->b) -> (a->b)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Now, how to implement something like this? Of course, one needs a finite<br />
map that stores values <hask>b</hask> for keys of type <hask>a</hask>.<br />
It turns out that such a map can be constructed recursively based on the structure of <hask>a</hask>:<br />
<haskell><br />
Map () b := b<br />
Map (Either a a') b := (Map a b, Map a' b)<br />
Map (a,a') b := Map a (Map a' b)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Here, <hask>Map a b</hask> is the type of a finite map from keys <hask>a</hask> to values <hask>b</hask>.<br />
Its construction is based on the following laws for functions<br />
<haskell><br />
() -> b =~= b<br />
(a + a') -> b =~= (a -> b) x (a' -> b) -- = case analysis<br />
(a x a') -> b =~= a -> (a' -> b) -- = currying<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
For further and detailed explanations, see<br />

<br />
== Memoization with recursion ==<br />
<br />
Things become more complicated if the function is recursively defined<br />
and it should use memoized calls to itself.<br />
A classic example is the recursive computation of [[The Fibonacci sequence|Fibonacci numbers]].<br />
<br />
The naive implementation of Fibonacci numbers without memoization is horribly slow.<br />
Try <hask>slow_fib 30</hask>, not too much higher than that and it hangs.<br />
<haskell><br />
slow_fib :: Int -> Integer<br />
slow_fib 0 = 0<br />
slow_fib 1 = 1<br />
slow_fib n = slow_fib (n-2) + slow_fib (n-1)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
The memoized version is much faster.<br />
Try <hask>memoized_fib 10000</hask>.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
memoized_fib :: Int -> Integer<br />
memoized_fib = (map fib [0 ..] !!)<br />
where fib 0 = 0<br />
fib 1 = 1<br />
fib n = memoized_fib (n-2) + memoized_fib (n-1)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
<br />
=== Memoizing fix point operator ===<br />
<br />
You can factor out the memoizing trick to a function, the memoizing fix point operator,<br />
which we will call <hask>memoFix</hask> here.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
fib :: (Int -> Integer) -> Int -> Integer<br />
fib f 0 = 1<br />
fib f 1 = 1<br />
fib f n = f (n-1) + f (n-2)<br />
<br />
fibonacci :: Int -> Integer<br />
fibonacci = memoFix fib<br />
<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
I suppose if you want to "put it in a library",<br />
you should just put <hask>fib</hask> in,<br />
and allow the user to call <hask>memoFix fib</hask> to make a new version when necessary.<br />
This allows the user e.g. to define the data structure used for memoization.<br />
<br />
The memoising fixpoint operator works<br />
by putting the result of the first call of the function<br />
for each natural number into a data structure and<br />
using that value for subsequent calls ;-)<br />
<br />
In general it is<br />
<haskell><br />
memoFix :: ((a -> b) -> (a -> b)) -> a -> b<br />
memoFix f =<br />
let mf = memoize (f mf) in mf<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />

({{HackagePackage|id=data-inttrie}})<br />
which is useful as memoizing data structure e.g. for the Fibonacci function.<br />
<haskell><br />
memoizeInt :: (Int -> a) -> (Int -> a)<br />
memoizeInt f = (fmap f (naturals 1 0) !!!)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
A data structure with a node corresponding to each natural number to use as a memo.<br />
<haskell><br />
data NaturalTree a = Node a (NaturalTree a) (NaturalTree a)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Map the nodes to the naturals in this order:<br />
<br />
<code><br />
0<br />
1 2<br />
3 5 4 6<br />
7 ...<br />
</code><br />
<br />
Look up the node for a particular number<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
Node a tl tr !!! 0 = a <br />
Node a tl tr !!! n =<br />
if odd n<br />
then tl !!! top<br />
else tr !!! (top-1)<br />
where top = n `div` 2<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
We surely want to be able to map on these things...<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
instance Functor NaturalTree where<br />
fmap f (Node a tl tr) = Node (f a) (fmap f tl) (fmap f tr)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
If only so that we can write cute,<br />
but inefficient things like the below,<br />
which is just a <hask>NaturalTree</hask><br />
such that <hask>naturals!!!n == n</hask>:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
naturals = Node 0 (fmap ((+1).(*2)) naturals) (fmap ((*2).(+1)) naturals)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
The following is probably more efficient<br />
(and, having arguments won't hang around at top level, I think)<br />
-- have I put more <hask>$!</hask>s than necessary?<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
naturals r n =<br />
Node n<br />
((naturals $! r2) $! (n+r))<br />
((naturals $! r2) $! (n+r2))<br />
where r2 = 2*r<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
==Memoising CAFS==<br />
'''Note: This is migrated from the old wiki.'''<br />
<br />
Memoising constructor functions gives you HashConsing, and you can sometimes use MemoisingCafs to implement that.<br />
<br />
The MemoisingCafs idiom also supports recursion.<br />
<br />
Consider, for example:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
wonderous :: Integer -> Integer<br />
wonderous 1 = 0<br />
wonderous x<br />
| even x = 1 + wonderous (x `div` 2)<br />
| otherwise = 1 + wonderous (3*x+1)<br />
</haskell><br />
This function is not at all understood by mathematicians and has a surprisingly complex recursion pattern, so if you need to call it many times with different values, optimising it would not be easy.<br />
<br />
However, we can memoise some of the domain using an array CAF:<br />
<haskell><br />
wonderous2 :: Integer -> Integer<br />
wonderous2 x<br />
| x <= maxMemo = memoArray ! x<br />
| otherwise = wonderous2' x<br />
where<br />
maxMemo = 100<br />
memoArray = array (1,maxMemo)<br />
[ (x, wonderous2' x) | x <- [1..maxMemo] ]<br />
<br />
wonderous2' 1 = 0<br />
wonderous2' x<br />
| even x = 1 + wonderous2 (x `div` 2)<br />
| otherwise = 1 + wonderous2' (3*x+1)<br />
</haskell><br />
When using this pattern in your own code, note carefully when to call the memoised version (wonderous2 in the above example) and when not to. In general, the partially memoised version (wonderous2' in the above example) should call the memoised version if it needs to perform a recursive call. However, in this instance, we only memoize for small values of x, so the branch of the recursion that passes a larger argument need not bother checking the memo table. (This does slow the array initialization, however.)<br />
Thanks to [[lazy evaluation]], we can even memoise an infinite domain, though we lose constant time lookup. This data structure is O(log N):<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
type MemoTable a = [(Integer, BinTree a)]<br />
data BinTree a = Leaf a | Node Integer (BinTree a) (BinTree a)<br />
<br />
wonderous3 :: Integer -> Integer<br />
wonderous3 x<br />
= searchMemoTable x memoTable<br />
where<br />
memoTable :: MemoTable Integer<br />
memoTable = buildMemoTable 1 5<br />
<br />
buildMemoTable n i<br />
= (nextn, buildMemoTable' n i) : buildMemoTable nextn (i+1)<br />
where<br />
nextn = n + 2^i<br />
<br />
buildMemoTable' base 0<br />
= Leaf (wonderous3' base)<br />
buildMemoTable' base i<br />
= Node (base + midSize)<br />
(buildMemoTable' base (i-1))<br />
(buildMemoTable' (base + midSize) (i-1))<br />
where<br />
midSize = 2 ^ (i-1)<br />
<br />
searchMemoTable x ((x',tree):ms)<br />
| x < x' = searchMemoTree x tree<br />
| otherwise = searchMemoTable x ms<br />
<br />
searchMemoTree x (Leaf y) = y<br />
searchMemoTree x (Node mid l r)<br />
| x < mid = searchMemoTree x l<br />
| otherwise = searchMemoTree x r<br />
<br />
wonderous3' 1 = 0<br />
wonderous3' x<br />
| even x = 1 + wonderous3 (x `div` 2)<br />
| otherwise = 1 + wonderous3 (3*x+1)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Naturally, these techniques can be combined, say, by using a fast CAF data structure for the most common part of the domain and an infinite CAF data structure for the rest.<br />

== Memoizing polymorphic functions ==<br />
<br />
What about memoizing polymorphic functions defined with polymorphic recursion?<br />
How can such functions be memoized?<br />
The caching data structures used in memoization typically handle only one type of argument at a time.<br />
For instance, one can have finite maps of differing types, but each concrete finite map holds just one type of key and one type of value.<br />
<br />

<hr />
<div>[[Category:Idioms]]<br />
<br />
'''Memoization''' is a technique for storing values of a function instead of recomputing them each time the function is called.<br />
<br />
== Memoization without recursion ==<br />
<br />
You can just write a memoization function using a data structure that is suitable for your application.<br />
We don't go into the details of this case.<br />
If you want a general solution for several types,<br />
you need a type class, say <hask>Memoizable</hask>.<br />
<haskell><br />
memoize :: Memoizable a => (a->b) -> (a->b)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Now, how to implement something like this? Of course, one needs a finite<br />
map that stores values <hask>b</hask> for keys of type <hask>a</hask>.<br />
It turns out that such a map can be constructed recursively based on the structure of <hask>a</hask>:<br />
<haskell><br />
Map () b := b<br />
Map (Either a a') b := (Map a b, Map a' b)<br />
Map (a,a') b := Map a (Map a' b)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Here, <hask>Map a b</hask> is the type of a finite map from keys <hask>a</hask> to values <hask>b</hask>.<br />
Its construction is based on the following laws for functions<br />
<haskell><br />
() -> b =~= b<br />
(a + a') -> b =~= (a -> b) x (a' -> b) -- = case analysis<br />
(a x a') -> b =~= a -> (a' -> b) -- = currying<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />

<br />
== Memoization with recursion ==<br />
<br />
Things become more complicated if the function is recursively defined<br />
and it should use memoized calls to itself.<br />
A classic example is the recursive computation of [[The Fibonacci sequence|Fibonacci numbers]].<br />
<br />
The naive implementation of Fibonacci numbers without memoization is horribly slow.<br />
Try <hask>slow_fib 30</hask>, not too much higher than that and it hangs.<br />
<haskell><br />
slow_fib :: Int -> Integer<br />
slow_fib 0 = 0<br />
slow_fib 1 = 1<br />
slow_fib n = slow_fib (n-2) + slow_fib (n-1)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
The memoized version is much faster.<br />
Try <hask>memoized_fib 10000</hask>.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
memoized_fib :: Int -> Integer<br />
memoized_fib x = map fib [0 ..] !! x<br />
where fib 0 = 0<br />
fib 1 = 1<br />
fib n = memoized_fib (n-2) + memoized_fib (n-1)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
<br />
=== Memoizing fix point operator ===<br />
<br />
You can factor out the memoizing trick to a function, the memoizing fix point operator,<br />
which we will call <hask>memoFix</hask> here.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
fib :: (Int -> Integer) -> Int -> Integer<br />
fib f 0 = 1<br />
fib f 1 = 1<br />
fib f n = f (n-1) + f (n-2)<br />
<br />
fibonacci :: Int -> Integer<br />
fibonacci = memoFix fib<br />
<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
I suppose if you want to "put it in a library",<br />
you should just put <hask>fib</hask> in,<br />
and allow the user to call <hask>memoFix fib</hask> to make a new version when necessary.<br />
This allows the user e.g. to define the data structure used for memoization.<br />
<br />
The memoising fixpoint operator works<br />
by putting the result of the first call of the function<br />
for each natural number into a data structure and<br />
using that value for subsequent calls ;-)<br />
<br />
In general it is<br />
<haskell><br />
memoFix :: ((a -> b) -> (a -> b)) -> a -> b<br />
memoFix f =<br />
let mf = memoize (f mf) in mf<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Efficient tree data structure for maps from Int to somewhere ==<br />
<br />
Here we present a special tree data type<br />
({{HackagePackage|id=data-inttrie}})<br />
which is useful as memoizing data structure e.g. for the Fibonacci function.<br />
<haskell><br />
memoizeInt :: (Int -> a) -> (Int -> a)<br />
memoizeInt f = (fmap f (naturals 1 0) !!!)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
A data structure with a node corresponding to each natural number to use as a memo.<br />
<haskell><br />
data NaturalTree a = Node a (NaturalTree a) (NaturalTree a)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Map the nodes to the naturals in this order:<br />
<br />
<code><br />
0<br />
1 2<br />
3 5 4 6<br />
7 ...<br />
</code><br />
<br />
Look up the node for a particular number<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
Node a tl tr !!! 0 = a <br />
Node a tl tr !!! n =<br />
if odd n<br />
then tl !!! top<br />
else tr !!! (top-1)<br />
where top = n `div` 2<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
We surely want to be able to map on these things...<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
instance Functor NaturalTree where<br />
fmap f (Node a tl tr) = Node (f a) (fmap f tl) (fmap f tr)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
If only so that we can write cute,<br />
but inefficient things like the below,<br />
which is just a <hask>NaturalTree</hask><br />
such that <hask>naturals!!!n == n</hask>:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
naturals = Node 0 (fmap ((+1).(*2)) naturals) (fmap ((*2).(+1)) naturals)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
The following is probably more efficient<br />
(and, having arguments won't hang around at top level, I think)<br />
-- have I put more <hask>$!</hask>s than necessary?<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
naturals r n =<br />
Node n<br />
((naturals $! r2) $! (n+r))<br />
((naturals $! r2) $! (n+r2))<br />
where r2 = 2*r<br />

== The concept of dependent types ==<br />
<br />
=== General ===<br />
<br />
* [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dependent_types Wikipedia]<br />
* [http://www-sop.inria.fr/oasis/Caminha00/abstract.html Dependent Types in Programming] abstract in APPSEM'2000<br />
* [http://www.brics.dk/RS/01/10/BRICS-RS-01-10.ps.gz Do we need dependent types?] by Daniel Fridlender and Mia Indrika, 2001.<br />
<br />
<br />
=== Type theory ===<br />
<br />
Simon Thompson: [http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/people/staff/sjt/TTFP/ Type Theory and Functional Programming]. Section 6.3 deals with dependent types, but because of the strong emphasis on [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curry_Howard_isomorphism Curry-Howard isomorphism] and the connections between logic and programming,<br />
the book seemed cathartic for me even from its beginning.<br />
<br />
Another interesting approach to Curry-Howard isomorphism and the concept of dependent type: [http://www.cs.chalmers.se/~aarne/course-langtech/lectures/lang09.html Lecture 9. Semantics and pragmatics of text and dialogue] dicsusses these concepts in the context of linguistics. Written by [http://www.cs.chalmers.se/~aarne/ Arne Ranta], see also [[Libraries and tools/Linguistics#Other functional or Haskell-related approaches to linguistics|his online course and other linguistical materials on the Linguistics wikipage]].<br />
<br />

<br />
=== Illative combinatory logic ===<br />
<br />
To see how Illative [[Combinatory logic]] deals with dependent types, see combinator '''G''' described in [http://citeseer.ist.psu.edu/246934.html Systems of Illative Combinatory Logic complete for first-order propositional and predicate calculus] by Henk Barendregt, Martin Bunder, Wil Dekkers.<br />
It seems to me that the dependent type construct<br />
<math>\forall x : S \Rightarrow T</math><br />
of Epigram corresponds to<br />
<math>\mathbf G\;S\;(\lambda x . T)</math><br />
in Illative Combinatory Logic. I think e.g. the followings should correspond to each other:<br />
* <math>\mathrm{realNullvector} :\;\;\;\forall n: \mathrm{Nat} \Rightarrow \mathrm{RealVector}\;n</math><br />
* <math>\mathbf G\;\,\mathrm{Nat}\;\,\mathrm{RealVector}\;\,\mathrm{realNullvector}</math><br />
<br />
<br />
== Dependently typed languages ==<br />
<br />
=== Epigram ===<br />
<br />
[http://www.e-pig.org/ Epigram] is a full dependently typed programming language, see especially<br />
* [http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.115.9718&rep=rep1&type=pdf Epigram Tutorial] by Conor McBride<br />
* and [http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.106.8190&rep=rep1&type=pdf Why dependent types matter] by Thorsten Altenkirch, Conor McBride and James McKinna).<br />
<br />
Dependent types (of this language) also provide a not-forgetful concept of '''views''' (already mentioned in the Haskell [[Future of Haskell#Extensions of Haskell]];<br />
the connection between these concepts is described in p. 32 of Epigram Tutorial (section ''4.6 Patterns Forget; Matching Is Remembering'').<br />
<br />
See Epigram also as [[Libraries and tools/Theorem provers|theorem prover]].<br />
<br />
=== Agda ===<br />
<br />
[http://www.cs.chalmers.se/~ulfn/Agda/ Agda] is a system for incrementally developing proofs and programs. Agda is also a functional language with dependent types. This language is similar to Epigram but has a more Haskell-like syntax.<br />
<br />
People who are interested also in theorem proving may see the [[Libraries and tools/Theorem provers|theorem provers]] page.<br />
<br />
=== Cayenne ===<br />
<br />
[http://www.cs.chalmers.se/~augustss/cayenne/index.html Cayenne] is influenced also by constructive type theory (see its page).<br />
<br />
Dependent types make it possible not to have a separate module language and a core language. This idea may concern Haskell too, see [[First-class module]] page.<br />
<br />
Depandent types make it useful also as a [[Libraries and tools/Theorem provers|theorem prover]].<br />
<br />
== Dependent types in Haskell programming ==<br />
<br />
=== Lightweight Dependent Typing ===<br />
[http://pobox.com/~oleg/ftp/Computation/lightweight-dependent-typing.html This web page] describes the lightweight approach<br />
and its applications, e.g., statically safe head/tail functions and<br />
the elimination<br />
of array bound check (even in such complex algorithms as Knuth-Morris-Pratt<br />
string search). The page also briefly describes `singleton types' (Hayashi and<br />
Xi).<br />
<br />
=== Library ===<br />
<br />
[http://www.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~eb/ivor.php Ivor] is type theory based theorem proving library -- written by [http://www.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~eb/index.php Edwin Brady] (see also the author's homepage, there are a lot of materials concerning dependent type theory there).<br />
<br />
=== Proposals ===<br />
John Hughes: [http://www.coverproject.org/TalksUntilSpring2004/DependentTypesInHaskell.pdf Dependent Types in Haskell (some ideas)].<br />
<br />
=== Simulating them ===<br />
* [http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=10.1.1.22.2636 Faking it: Simulating Dependent Types in Haskell], by Conor McBride<br />
* <s>[http://haskell.org/hawiki/SimulatingDependentTypes SimulatingDependentTypes] of HaWiki</s> (404 Error)<br />
* The [[Type#See also|''See also'' section of Type]] page contains links to many related idioms. Especially [[type arithmetic]] seems to me also a way yielding some tastes from dependent type theory.<br />
* On the usefulness of such idioms in practice, see HaskellDB's pages<br />
** [http://haskelldb.sourceforge.net/ updated] page (see ''Papers'' subsection on [http://haskelldb.sourceforge.net/#documentation Documentation])<br />
** which presupposes reading also paper on the [http://www.haskell.org/haskellDB/ original] page (see [http://www.haskell.org/haskellDB/doc.html Documentation subpage], PostScript version)<br />

<hr />
<div>VirtuaHac is a hackathon for the rest of us! Instead of travel and lodging expenses, we plan to host a collective hacking session using technology and distance collaboration tools.<br />
<br />
== Collaboration Tools ==<br />
<br />
The tools we plan to use are:<br />
<br />
* Google+ (http://plus.google.com) hangouts for real-time video (or audio-only) chat.<br />
<br />
* Git/Darcs: We recommend (but don't require) using github or patch-tag for projects that are hacked on. You probably want to create a hackathon-specific repo to make it easier for hackathon members to collaborate without handing out permissions to the real code. Even if it's not through github or patch-tag, anyone sponsoring a project will need to provide an easy way to manage collective access to the source code. If that's 'darcs send', you'll have to be pretty responsive.<br />
<br />
* This Wiki: Make sure you have a Haskellwiki account, as we'll be posting links to current projects here.<br />
<br />
== VirtuaHac 2011.10 ==<br />
<br />
The first VirtuaHac is October 21-23, 2011.<br />
<br />
Signups (include your time zone as GMT +/- x, and projects you know something about and are willing or interested in working on):<br />
<br />
* Chris Smith (GMT-7)<br />
** snap-typed-sessions (mysnapsession in Hackage)<br />

<br />
== Procedures ==<br />
<br />
Once VirtuaHac starts, we'll create a Lobby section of this wiki page. To start up a collaboration:<br />
<br />
1. Create a Hangout on Google+. Name it to indicate it's part of VirtuaHac.<br />
2. Post a link to the Hangout in the Lobby section.<br />
3. As applicable, post links to version control or other resources under the project in Lobby, too.<br />
<br />
As needed, also feel free to create "VirtuaHac Break Room" Hangouts, for chatting among people who aren't currently working on a collaboration. These could be a good chance to chat with others about what they've got in the pipe, and start collaborations.<br />
<br />
If a collaboration is at or very close to 10 people (the size limit for Google+ hangouts), you may want to break it into subprojects.</div>Drb226https://wiki.haskell.org/VirtuaHacVirtuaHac2011-10-10T04:22:21Z<p>Drb226: /* VirtuaHac 2011.10 */ + me</p>

<hr />
<div>Inspired by http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7603509/haskell-syntax-for-or-in-case-expressions<br />
<br />
It is proposed that Haskell allow multiple pattern matches in a case statement to map to a single right-hand-side expression.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
factorial :: Int -> Int<br />
factorial n = case n of<br />
0, 1 -> 1<br />
_ | n < 0 -> undefined<br />
_ -> n * factorial (pred n)<br />
<br />
-- without this suggested extension,<br />
-- the cases of 0 and 1 would have to be handled separately.<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
If the right-hand-side expression utilizes bound variables from the pattern match, then all grouped pattern matches must bind the same variable.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
unEither :: Either a a -> a<br />
unEither eitherVal = case eitherVal of<br />
Left v, Right v -> v<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
This is because only one of the pattern matches will occur. Clearly, the RHS cannot draw from multiple differing pattern matches. This would be an error.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
-- this would be a scoping error<br />
eitherSum :: Either Int Int -> Int<br />
eitherSum eitherVal case eitherVal of<br />
Left l, Right r -> l + r<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
An additional example:<br />
<haskell><br />
-- modified example from Haskell School of Music<br />
getDur :: Primitive a -> Dur<br />
getDur p = case p of<br />
ModDur (Tempo r) d -> d / r<br />
Note d _, Rest d, ModDur _ d -> d <br />
-- notice how we don't have to write `-> d` for<br />
-- each of the 3 trivial cases; they all share the same RHS<br />
<br />
-- layout rules should also permit<br />
-- splitting the shared matches over multiple lines<br />
getDur' :: Primitive a -> Dur<br />
getDur' p = case p of<br />
ModDur (Tempo r) d -> d / r<br />
Note d _,<br />
Rest d,<br />
ModDur _ d -> d<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
<br />
The comma syntax would work for combining the outermost level of pattern matches in case statements. Something more interesting might be to allow nested options in patterns. Using `|` syntax:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
case expr of<br />
(GT|LT):foo -> expr1<br />
EQ:bar -> expr2<br />
<br />
-- This could be written more verbosely with Haskell's guard syntax:<br />
case expr of<br />
x:foo | x == GT || x == LT -> expr1<br />
EQ:bar -> expr2<br />
<br />
-- Or by simply duplicating the RHS<br />
case expr of<br />
GT:foo -> expr1<br />
LT:foo -> expr1<br />
EQ:bar -> expr2<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Using `|` is a problem, however, since it would conflict with guard syntax. Using `,` is also a problem for nested options such as this, because it conflicts with pattern matching on tuples:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
case expr of<br />
(GT,LT):foo -> expr1<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Nested case pattern options may be too complex to actually be useful. But it could be convenient to have it at the outermost level, in which case, the comma syntax should work decently. There would still be some ambiguity when guards are included<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
case expr of<br />
pat1 | guard1, guard2 -> expr1<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
In the above case, it might be considered ambiguous whether or not guard2 is a guard, or whether it should actually be considered as pat2, another pattern.</div>Drb226https://wiki.haskell.org/MultiCaseMultiCase2011-09-30T04:18:38Z<p>Drb226: </p>

<hr />
<div>Internet Relay Chat is a worldwide text chat service with many thousands<br />
of users among various irc networks.<br />
<br />
The Freenode IRC network hosts the very large #haskell channel, and we've had<br />
up to <br />
804<br />
concurrent users<br />
(average is 714<br />
), making the channel<br />
[http://searchirc.com/search.php?SCHANS=1&SSORT=SIZE&N=freenode one of the 10 largest]<br />
of the 12,000+ channels on freenode and the second largest programming language channel after Python. One famous<br />
resident is [[Lambdabot]], another is [http://hpaste.org hpaste] (see<br />
the [[#Bots|Bots]] section below).<br />
<br />
The IRC channel can be an excellent place to learn more about Haskell,<br />
and to just keep in the loop on new things in the Haskell world. Many<br />
new developments in the Haskell world first appear on the irc channel.<br />
<br />
Since 2009, the Haskell channel has grown large enough that we've split it in two parts:<br />
<br />
* #haskell, for all the usual things<br />
* #haskell-in-depth , for those seeking in depth, or more theoretical discussion<br />
<br />
As always, #haskell remains the primary place for new user questions.<br />

If you point your irc client to [irc://chat.freenode.net/haskell chat.freenode.net] and then join the #haskell channel, you'll be there. Alternately, you can try http://java.freenode.net/ or http://webchat.freenode.net/ which connects inside the browser.<br />
<br />
Example, using [http://www.irssi.org/ irssi]:<br />
<br />
$ irssi -c chat.freenode.net -n myname -w mypassword<br />
/join #haskell<br />
<br />
Tip, if you're using Emacs to edit your Haskell sources then why not use it to chat about Haskell? Check out [http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/EmacsIRCClient ERC], The Emacs IRC client. Invoke it like this and follow the commands:<br />
<br />
M-x erc-select<br />
...<br />
/join #haskell<br />
<br />

<br />
== Principles ==<br />
<br />
The #haskell channel is a very friendly, welcoming place to hang out,<br />
teach and learn. The goal of #haskell is to encourage learning and<br />
discussion of Haskell, functional programming, and programming in<br />
general. As part of this we welcome newbies, and encourage teaching of<br />
the language.<br />
<br />
Part of the #haskell success comes from the approach that the community<br />
is quite tight knit -- we know each other -- it's not just a homework<br />
channel. As a result, many collaborative projects have arisen between<br />
Haskell irc channel citizens.<br />
<br />
To maintain the friendly, open culture, the following is required:<br />
<br />
* Low to zero tolerance for ridiculing questions. Insulting new users is unacceptable.<br />
<br />
New Haskell users should feel entirely comfortable asking new questions.<br />
Helpful answers should be encouraged with <hask>name++</hask> karma<br />
points, in public, as a reward for providing a good answer.<br />
<br />
As the channel grows, we see a diverse range of people, with different<br />
programming backgrounds, trying to make their way with Haskell. A good<br />
rule of thumb, to avoid frustration is:<br />
<br />
* approach negative comments by asking for details (kind of like [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socratic_method Socratic questioning]), rather than challenging the competence of the writer (ad hominem).<br />
<br />
<br />
== History ==<br />
<br />
The #haskell channel appeared in the late 90s, and really got going<br />
in early 2001, with the help of Shae Erisson (aka shapr).<br />
<br />
A fairly extensive analysis of the traffic on #haskell over the years is<br />
[http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~dons/irc/ kept here]<br />

<div>Construct a complete binary tree<br />
<br />
A complete binary tree with height H is defined as follows:<br />
* The levels 1,2,3,...,H-1 contain the maximum number of nodes (i.e 2**(i-1) at the level i)<br />
* In level H, which may contain less than the maximum possible number of nodes, all the nodes are "left-adjusted". This means that in a levelorder tree traversal all internal nodes come first, the leaves come second, and empty successors (the nil's which are not really nodes!) come last. <br />
<br />
Particularly, complete binary trees are used as data structures (or addressing schemes) for heaps. <br />
<br />
We can assign an address number to each node in a complete binary tree by enumerating the nodes in level-order, starting at the root with number 1. For every node X with address A the following property holds: The address of X's left and right successors are 2*A and 2*A+1, respectively, if they exist. This fact can be used to elegantly construct a complete binary tree structure.<br />
<br />
Write a predicate complete_binary_tree/2.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
import Data.List <br />
<br />
data Tree a = Empty | Branch a (Tree a) (Tree a) <br />
deriving (Show, Eq) <br />
<br />
filled :: Tree a -> [[Bool]] <br />
filled Empty = repeat [False] <br />
filled (Branch _ l r) = [True] : zipWith (++) (filled l) (filled r) <br />
<br />
complete_binary_tree :: Int -> Tree Char <br />
complete_binary_tree n = generate_tree 1 <br />
where generate_tree x <br />
| x > n = Empty <br />
| otherwise = Branch 'x' (generate_tree (2*x) ) <br />
(generate_tree (2*x+1)) <br />
<br />
is_complete_binary_tree :: Tree a -> Bool <br />
is_complete_binary_tree Empty = True <br />
is_complete_binary_tree t = and $ last_proper : zipWith (==) lengths powers <br />
where levels = takeWhile or $ filled t <br />
-- The upper levels of the tree should be filled. <br />
-- Every level has twice the number of nodes as the one above it, <br />
-- so [1,2,4,8,16,...] <br />
lengths = map (length . filter id) $ init levels <br />
powers = iterate (2*) 1 <br />
-- The last level should contain a number of filled spots, <br />
-- and (maybe) some empty spots, but no filled spots after that! <br />
last_filled = map head $ group $ last levels <br />
last_proper = head last_filled && (length last_filled) < 3 <br />
</haskell><br />
The "generate_tree" method here creates Node number "x", and then creates x's children nodes. By the property described above, these nodes are numbers 2*x and 2*x+1. If x > n, then the node is only created as Empty, and does not create children nodes.<br />
----<br />
Alternative solution which constructs complete binary trees from a given list using local recursion (also includes a lookup function as per the Prolog solution):<br />
<haskell><br />
completeBinaryTree :: Int -> a -> Tree a<br />
completeBinaryTree n = cbtFromList . replicate n<br />
<br />
cbtFromList :: [a] -> Tree a<br />
cbtFromList xs = let (t, xss) = cbt (xs:xss) in t<br />
where cbt ((x:xs):xss) =<br />
let (l, xss') = cbt xss<br />
(r, xss'') = cbt xss'<br />
in (Branch x l r, xs:xss'')<br />
cbt _ = (Empty, [])<br />
<br />
lookupIndex :: Tree a -> Integer -> a<br />
lookupIndex t = lookup t . path<br />
where lookup Empty _ = error "index to large"<br />
lookup (Branch x _ _) [] = x<br />
lookup (Branch x l r) (p:ps) = lookup (if even p then l else r) ps<br />
<br />
path = reverse . takeWhile (>1) . iterate (`div` 2) . (1+)<br />

<hr />
<div>Collect the nodes at a given level in a list<br />
<br />
A node of a binary tree is at level N if the path from the root to the node has length N-1. The root node is at level 1. Write a predicate atlevel/3 to collect all nodes at a given level in a list. <br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
atlevel :: Tree a -> Int -> [a]<br />
atlevel Empty _ = []<br />
atlevel (Branch v l r) n<br />
| n == 1 = [v]<br />
| n > 1 = atlevel l (n-1) ++ atlevel r (n-1)<br />
| otherwise = []<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Another possibility is to decompose the problem:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
levels :: Tree a -> [[a]]<br />
levels Empty = repeat []<br />
levels (Branch a l r) = [a] : zipWith (++) (levels l) (levels r)<br />
<br />
atlevel :: Tree a -> Int -> [a]<br />
atlevel t n = levels t !! (n-1)<br />
</haskell></div>Drb226https://wiki.haskell.org/99_questions/Solutions/5599 questions/Solutions/552010-11-21T08:17:02Z<p>Drb226: adding another way: make all combinations and then filter</p>
<hr />
<div>(**) Construct completely balanced binary trees<br />
<br />
In a completely balanced binary tree, the following property holds for every node: The number of nodes in its left subtree and the number of nodes in its right subtree are almost equal, which means their difference is not greater than one.<br />
<br />
Write a function cbal-tree to construct completely balanced binary trees for a given number of nodes. The predicate should generate all solutions via backtracking. Put the letter 'x' as information into all nodes of the tree.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
cbalTree :: Int -> [Tree Char]<br />
cbalTree 0 = [Empty]<br />
cbalTree n = let (q, r) = (n - 1) `quotRem` 2<br />
in [Branch 'x' left right | i <- [q .. q + r],<br />
left <- cbalTree i,<br />
right <- cbalTree (n - i - 1)]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
This solution uses a list comprehension to enumerate all the trees, in a style that is more natural than standard backtracking.<br />
<br />
The base case is a tree of size 0, for which <tt>Empty</tt> is the only possibility. Trees of size <tt>n == 1</tt> or larger consist of a branch, having left and right subtrees with sizes that sum up to <tt>n - 1</tt>. This is accomplished by getting the quotient and remainder of <tt>(n - 1)</tt> divided by two; the remainder will be 0 if <tt>n</tt> is odd, and 1 if <tt>n</tt> is even. For <tt>n == 4</tt>, <tt>(q, r) = (1, 1)</tt>.<br />
<br />
Inside the list comprehension, <tt>i</tt> varies from <tt>q</tt> to <tt>q + r</tt>. In our <tt>n == 4</tt> example, <tt>i</tt> will vary from 1 to 2. We recursively get all possible left subtrees of size <tt>[1..2]</tt>, and all right subtrees with the remaining elements.<br />
<br />
When we recursively call <tt>cbalTree 1</tt>, <tt>q</tt> and <tt>r</tt> will both be 0, thus <tt>i</tt> will be 0, and the left subtree will simply be <tt>Empty</tt>. The same goes for the right subtree, since <tt>n - i - 1</tt> is 0. This gives back a branch with no children--a "leaf" node:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
> cbalTree 1<br />
[Branch 'x' Empty Empty]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
The call to <tt>cbalTree 2</tt> sets <tt>(q, r) = (0, 1)</tt>, so we'll get back a list of two possible subtrees. One has an empty left branch, the other an empty right branch:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
> cbalTree 2<br />
[<br />
Branch 'x' Empty (Branch 'x' Empty Empty),<br />
Branch 'x' (Branch 'x' Empty Empty) Empty<br />
]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
In this way, balances trees of any size can be built recursively from smaller trees.<br />
<br />
----<br />
Another approach is to create a list of all possible tree structures with a given number of nodes, and then filter that list on whether or not the tree is balanced.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
data Tree a = Empty | Branch a (Tree a) (Tree a) deriving (Show, Eq)<br />
leaf x = Branch x Empty Empty<br />
<br />
main = putStrLn $ concatMap (\t -> show t ++ "\n") balTrees<br />
where balTrees = filter isBalancedTree (makeTrees 'x' 4)<br />
<br />
isBalancedTree :: Tree a -> Bool<br />
isBlanacedTree Empty = True<br />
isBalancedTree (Branch _ l r) = abs (countBranches l - countBranches r) ≤ 1<br />
&& isBalancedTree l && isBalancedTree r<br />
isBalancedTree _ = False<br />
<br />
countBranches :: Tree a -> Int<br />
countBranches Empty = 0<br />
countBranches (Branch _ l r) = 1 + countBranches l + countBranches r<br />
<br />
-- makes all possible trees filled with the given number of nodes<br />
-- and fill them with the given value<br />
makeTrees :: a -> Int -> [Tree a]<br />
makeTrees _ 0 = []<br />
makeTrees c 1 = [leaf c]<br />
makeTrees c n = lonly ++ ronly ++ landr<br />
where lonly = [Branch c t Empty | t <- smallerTree]<br />
ronly = [Branch c Empty t | t <- smallerTree]<br />
landr = concat [[Branch c l r | l <- fst lrtrees, r <- snd lrtrees] | lrtrees <- treeMinusTwo]<br />
smallerTree = makeTrees c (n-1)<br />
treeMinusTwo = [(makeTrees c num, makeTrees c (n-1-num)) | num <- [0..n-2]]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
While not nearly as neat as the previous solution, this solution uses some generic binary tree methods that could be useful in other contexts.</div>Drb226https://wiki.haskell.org/99_questions/Solutions/4699 questions/Solutions/462010-11-21T06:07:37Z<p>Drb226: note on generalizing 'table' method</p>
<hr />
<div>(**) Define predicates and/2, or/2, nand/2, nor/2, xor/2, impl/2 and equ/2 (for logical equivalence) which succeed or fail according to the result of their respective operations; e.g. and(A,B) will succeed, if and only if both A and B succeed.<br />
<br />
A logical expression in two variables can then be written as in the following example: and(or(A,B),nand(A,B)).<br />
<br />
Now, write a predicate table/3 which prints the truth table of a given logical expression in two variables.<br />
<br />
The first step in this problem is to define the Boolean predicates:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
-- NOT negates a single Boolean argument<br />
not' :: Bool -> Bool<br />
not' True = False<br />
not' False = True<br />
<br />
-- Type signature for remaining logic functions<br />
and',or',nor',nand',xor',impl',equ' :: Bool -> Bool -> Bool<br />
<br />
-- AND is True if both a and b are True<br />
and' True True = True<br />
and' _ _ = False<br />
<br />
-- OR is True if a or b or both are True<br />
or' False False = False<br />
or' _ _ = True<br />
<br />
-- NOR is the negation of 'or'<br />
nor' a b = not' $ or' a b<br />
<br />
-- NAND is the negation of 'and'<br />
nand' a b = not' $ and' a b<br />
<br />
-- XOR is True if either a or b is True, but not if both are True<br />
xor' True False = True<br />
xor' False True = True<br />
xor' _ _ = False<br />
<br />
-- IMPL is True if a implies b, equivalent to (not a) or (b)<br />
impl' a b = (not' a) `or'` b<br />
<br />
-- EQU is True if a and b are equal<br />
equ' True True = True<br />
equ' False False = True<br />
equ' _ _ = False<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
The above implementations build each logic function from scratch; they could be shortened using Haskell's builtin equivalents:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
and' a b = a && b<br />
or' a b = a || b<br />
nand' a b = not (and' a b)<br />
nor' a b = not (or' a b)<br />
xor' a b = and' (or' a b) (nand' a b)<br />
impl' a b = or' (not a) b<br />
equ' a b = a == b<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Some could be reduced even further using [[Pointfree]] style:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
and' = (&&)<br />
or' = (||)<br />
equ' = (==)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
The only remaining task is to generate the truth table; most of the complexity here comes from the string conversion and IO. The approach used here accepts a Boolean function <tt>(Bool -> Bool -> Bool)</tt>, then calls that function with all four combinations of two Boolean values, and converts the resulting values into a list of space-separated strings. Finally, the strings are printed out by mapping <hask>putStrLn</hask> across the list of strings:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
table :: (Bool -> Bool -> Bool) -> IO ()<br />
table f = mapM_ putStrLn [show a ++ " " ++ show b ++ " " ++ show (f a b)<br />
| a <- [True, False], b <- [True, False]]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
The table function in Lisp supposedly uses Lisp's symbol handling to substitute variables on the fly in the expression. I chose passing a binary function instead because parsing an expression would be more verbose in haskell than it is in Lisp. Template Haskell could also be used :)<br />

The table function can be generalized to work for any given binary function and domain.<br />

printBinary :: (Show a, Show b) => (a -> a -> b) -> [a] -> String<br />

printBinaryInstance :: (Show a, Show b) => (a -> a -> b) -> a -> a -> String<br />
printBinaryInstance f x y = show x ++ " " ++ show y ++ " " ++ show (f x y)<br />

<div>(**) Determine whether a given integer number is prime.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
isPrime :: Integral a => a -> Bool<br />
isPrime p = p > 1 && (all (\n -> p `mod` n /= 0 ) $ takeWhile (\n -> n*n <= p) [2..])<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Well, a natural number p is a prime number iff it is larger than 1 and no natural number n with n >= 2 and n^2 <= p is a divisor of p. That's exactly what is implemented: we take the list of all integral numbers starting with 2 as long as their square is at most p and check that for all these n there is a remainder concerning the division of p by n.<br />
<br />
However, we don't actually need to check all natural numbers <= sqrt P. We need only check the all natural primes <= sqrt P.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
-- Infinite list of all prime numbers<br />
allPrimes :: [Int]<br />
allPrimes = filter (isPrime) [2..]<br />
<br />
isPrime :: Int -> Bool<br />
isPrime p<br />
| p < 2 = error "Number too small"<br />
| p == 2 = True<br />
| p > 2 = all (\n -> p `mod` n /= 0) (getPrimes sqrtp)<br />
where getPrimes z = takeWhile (<= z) allPrimes<br />
sqrtp = floor . sqrt $ fromIntegral p<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Note that the mutual dependency of allPrimes and isPrime would result in an infinite loop if we weren't careful. But since we limit our observation of allPrimes to <= sqrt x, we avoid infinite recursion.<br />
<br />
While the mutual dependency is interesting, this second version is not necessarily more efficient than the first. Though we avoid checking all natural numbers <= sqrt P in the isPrime method, we instead check the primality of all natural numbers <= sqrt P in the allPrimes definition.</div>Drb226https://wiki.haskell.org/99_questions/Solutions/3199 questions/Solutions/312010-11-21T03:28:31Z<p>Drb226: adding an interesting variant</p>

<div>Lotto: Draw N different random numbers from the set 1..M.<br />

<haskell><br />

diff_select :: Int -> Int -> IO [Int]<br />
diff_select n to = diff_select' n [1..to]<br />

diff_select' 0 _ = return []<br />

let remaining = take r xs ++ drop (r+1) xs<br />
rest <- diff_select' (n-1) remaining<br />
return ((xs!!r) : rest)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
The random numbers have to be distinct!<br />
<br />
In order to use randomRIO here, we need import module System.Random.<br />
<br />
As can be seen, having implemented problem 23, rnd_select, the solution is trivial.<br />
<haskell><br />
diff_select n to = rnd_select [1..to] n<br />

range = enumFromTo<br />
</haskell><br />

range x y = take (y-x+1) $ iterate (+1) x<br />

range start stop<br />

</haskell><br />
<br />
Since there's already syntactic sugar for ranges, there's usually no reason to define a function like 'range' in Haskell. In fact, the syntactic sugar is implemented using the enumFromTo function, which is exactly what 'range' should be.</div>Drb226https://wiki.haskell.org/99_questions/Solutions/1999 questions/Solutions/192010-11-20T04:54:14Z<p>Drb226: </p>

<div>(**) Rotate a list N places to the left.<br />
<br />
Hint: Use the predefined functions length and (++).<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
rotate [] _ = []<br />
rotate l 0 = l<br />
rotate (x:xs) (n+1) = rotate (xs ++ [x]) n<br />
rotate l n = rotate l (length l + n)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
There are two separate cases:<br />
* If n > 0, move the first element to the end of the list n times.<br />
* If n < 0, convert the problem to the equivalent problem for n > 0 by adding the list's length to n.<br />
<br />
or using cycle:<br />
<haskell><br />
rotate xs n = take len . drop (n `mod` len) . cycle $ xs<br />
where len = length xs<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
or<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
rotate xs n = if n >= 0 then<br />
drop n xs ++ take n xs<br />
else let l = ((length xs) + n) in<br />
drop l xs ++ take l xs<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
or<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
rotate xs n = drop nn xs ++ take nn xs<br />
where <br />
nn = n `mod` length xs<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Using a simple splitAt trick<br />
<haskell><br />
rotate xs n<br />
| n < 0 = rotate xs (n+len)<br />
| n > len = rotate xs (n-len)<br />
| otherwise = let (f,s) = splitAt n xs in s ++ f<br />
