<div>I completely agree with the perception that the channel has become less newbie-friendly during the last two years simply due to higher attendance. <br />
<br />
I am not sure how well people will be able to participate in two or more channels at the same time, but it's definitely worth trying out in order to keep the barrier of entry to haskell as low as possible. We should just try not to upset the delicate current state of helpfullness, sillyness and creativity of the channel by making overly drastic changes.<br />
<br />
As for lambdabot, I would propose a restricted instruction set for the #haskell channel in order to eliminate noisy (yet fun) commands and have a platform for straight-to-the-point answers. I.e. a restriction of commands to @eval @source @index @hoogle and a few more.<br />
<br />
Alternatively, the use of other commands could be limited to 1 per 5 minutes or so. OR, we rely on the #haskell users to to take their overly silly/verbose lambdabot requests to one of the other channels...<br />

<hr />
<div>'''[http://www.haskell.org/th/ Template Haskell]''' is a [[GHC]] extension to Haskell that adds compile-time metaprogramming facilities. The original design can be found here: http://research.microsoft.com/~simonpj/papers/meta-haskell/ . It is [http://haskell.cs.yale.edu/ghc/docs/6.2/html/users_guide/template-haskell.html included] in GHC version 6. If you start working with Template Haskell you'll probably want to join the [http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/template-haskell Template Haskell mailing list].<br />
<br />
This page hopes to be a more central and organized repository of TH related things. However, at this point most things should probably go to/through the mailing list first.<br />
<br />
----<br />
=What is Template Haskell?=<br />
Template Haskell is an extension to Haskell 98 that allows you to do type-safe compile-time meta-programming, with Haskell both as the manipulating language and the language being manipulated. <br />
<br />
Intuitively Template Haskell provides new language features that allow us to convert back and forth between concrete syntax, i.e. what you would type when you write normal Haskell code, and abstract syntax trees. These abstract syntax trees are represented using Haskell datatypes and, at compile time, they can be manipulated by Haskell code. This allows you to reify (convert from concrete syntax to an abstract syntax tree) some code, transform it and splice it back in (convert back again), or even to produce completely new code and splice that in, while the compiler is compiling your module. <br />
<br />
There is a [http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/template-haskell mailing list specifically for Template Haskell]. It's worth joining if you start to use TH.<br />
<br />
= Template Haskell specification =<br />

Template Haskell is only documented rather informally at the moment. Here are the main resources:<br />

What are you doing/planning to do/have done with Template Haskell?<br />
<br />
* I have written a primitive (untyped) binding to the Objective-C runtime system on Mac OS X. It needs just TH, no "stub files" are created, no seperate utilities are required. Initial snapshot is at http://www.kfunigraz.ac.at/imawww/thaller/wolfgang/HOC020103.tar.bz2 -- WolfgangThaller<br />
<br />
* I am writing Template Greencard - a reimplementation of GreenCard using TH. Many bits work out really nicely. A few bits didn't work so nicely - once I get some time to think, I'll try to persuade the TH folk to make some changes to fix some of these. -- AlastairReid<br />
<br />
* I'm writing Hacanon - a framework for automatic generation of C++ bindings. Read "automated Template Greencard for C++" (-: Darcs repo: http://www.ScannedInAvian.org/repos/hacanon - You'll need gccxml (http://www.gccxml.org/) to compile the exmples. - 27 Dec Lemmih.<br />
<br />
* Following other FFI tools developers, I see some future for Template HSFFIG, especially when it comes to autogenerate peek and poke methods for structures defined in C; may be useful for implementation of certain network protocols such as X11 where layout of messages is provided as C structure/union declaration. - 16 Dec 2005 DimitryGolubovsky<br />
<br />
* I am using Template Haskell as a mechanism to get parsed, typechecked code into an Ajax based Haskell Equational Reasoning tool [[Haskell Equational Reasoning Assistant]], as well as simplify the specification of equational relationships between pieces of code. There was a quicktime movie of the tool being used on http://www.gill-warbington.com/home/andy/share/hera1.html - AndyGill <br />
<br />
* I am working on functional metaprogramming techniques to enhance programming reliability and productivity, by reusing much of the existing compiler technology. Template Haskell is especially interesting for me because it permits to check size information of structures by the compiler, provided this information is available at compile time. This approach is especially appropriate for hardware designs, where the structures are fixed before the circuit starts operating. See our metaprogramming web page at http://www.infosun.fmi.uni-passau.de/cl/metaprog/ -- ChristophHerrmann(http://www.cs.st-and.ac.uk/~ch)<br />
<br />
* I am using Template Haskell to do type safe database access. I initially [http://www.nabble.com/Using-Template-Haskell-to-make-type-safe-database-access-td17027286.html proposed this on haskell-cafe]. I connect to the database at compile-time and let the database do SQL parsing and type inference. The result from parsing and type inference is used to build a type safe database query which can executed at run-time.

<br />
Things that Ian Lynagh (Igloo) mentioned in his paper ''Template Haskell: A Report From The Field'' in May 2003 (available [http://www.haskell.org/th/papers.html here]), by section:<br />
<br />
* Section 2 (curses)<br />
** The ability to splice names (into "foreign import" declarations, in particular)<br />
** The ability to add things to the export list from a splice(?)<br />
** The ability to use things defined at the toplevel of a module from splices in that same module (would require multi-stage compilation, as opposed to the current approach of expanding splices during typechecking)<br />
<br />
* Section 3 (deriving instances of classes)<br />
** <strike>First-class reification</strike> (the <hask>reify</hask> function)<br />
** A way to discover whether a data constructor was defined infix or prefix (which is necessary to derive instances for <hask>Read</hask> and <hask>Show</hask> as outlined in [http://www.haskell.org/onlinereport/derived.html The Haskell 98 Report: Specification of Derived Instances]) (if there is a way, [http://www-users.cs.york.ac.uk/~ndm/derive/ Derive] seems ignorant of it)<br />
** Type/context splicing (in <hask>instance</hask> headers in particular)<br />
<br />
* Section 4 (printf)<br />
** He says something to the effect that a pattern-matching form of the quotation brackets would be cool if it was expressive enough to be useful, but that this would be hard. (Don't expect this anytime soon.)<br />
<br />
* Section 5 (fraskell)<br />
** Type information for quoted code (so that simplification can be done safely even with overloaded operations, like, oh, <hask>(+)</hask>)<br />
<br />
* Section 6 (pan)<br />
** Type info again, and strictnes info too (this one seems a bit pie-in-the-sky...)<br />
<br />
(Please leave the implemented ones here, but crossed off.)<br />
<br />
Any other features that may be nice, and TH projects you'd want to see.<br />
<br />
* A TH tutorial (mainly a distillation and update of ''Template Meta-programming in Haskell'' at this point)<br />
* Write Haddock documentation for the Template Haskell library.<br />

<br />
== What to do when you can't splice that there ==<br />
<br />
When you try to splice something into the middle of a template and find that you just can't, instead of getting frustrated about it, why not use the template to see what it would look like in longhand? <br />
<br />
First, an excerpt from a module of my own. I, by the way, am SamB.<br />
<haskell><br />
{-# OPTIONS_GHC -fglasgow-exts -fth #-}<br />
<br />
module MMixMemory where<br />
<br />
import Data.Int<br />
import Data.Word<br />
<br />
class (Integral int, Integral word)<br />
=> SignConversion int word | int -> word, word -> int where<br />
<br />
toSigned :: word -> int<br />
toSigned = fromIntegral<br />
toUnsigned :: int -> word<br />
toUnsigned = fromIntegral<br />
<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Say I want to find out what I need to do to splice in the types for an instance declaration for the SignConversion class, so that I can declare instances for Int8 with Word8 through Int64 with Word64. So, I start up good-ol' GHCi and do the following:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
$ ghci -fth -fglasgow-exts<br />
Prelude> :l MMixMemory<br />
*MMixMemory> :m +Language.Haskell.TH.Syntax<br />
*MMixMemory Language.Haskell.TH.Syntax> runQ [d| instance SignConversion Int Word where |] >>= print<br />
[InstanceD [] (AppT (AppT (ConT MMixMemory.SignConversion) (ConT GHC.Base.Int)) (ConT GHC.Word.Word)) []]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Why does <tt>runQ</tt> crash if I try to reify something? ==<br />
<br />
This program will fail with an error message when you run it:<br />
<haskell><br />
main = do info <- runQ (reify (mkName "Bool"))<br />
putStrLn (pprint info)<br />
</haskell><br />
Reason: <tt>reify</tt> consults the type environment, and that is not available at run-time. The type of <tt>reify</tt> is <br />
<haskell><br />
reify :: Quasi m => Q a -> m a<br />
</haskell><br />
The IO monad is a poor-man's instance of <tt>Quasi</tt>; it can allocate unique names and gather error messages, but it can't do <tt>reify</tt>. This error should really be caught statically.<br />
<br />
Here's an [http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/glasgow-haskell-users/2006-August/010844.html email thread with more details].<br />

= Examples =<br />
== Select from a tuple ==<br />
<br />
An example to select an element from a tuple of arbitrary size. Taken from [http://www.haskell.org/th/papers/meta-haskell.ps this paper].<br />
<br />
Use like so:<br />
<br />
> $(sel 2 3) ('a','b','c')<br />
'b'<br />
> $(sel 3 4) ('a','b','c','d')<br />
'c'<br />
<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
sel :: Int -> Int -> ExpQ<br />
sel i n = [| \x -> $(caseE [| x |] [alt]) |]<br />
where alt :: MatchQ<br />
alt = match pat (normalB rhs) []<br />
<br />
pat :: Pat<br />
pat = tupP (map varP as)<br />
<br />
rhs :: ExpQ<br />
rhs = varE(as !! (i -1)) -- !! is 0 based<br />
<br />
as :: [String]<br />
as = ["a" ++ show i | i <- [1..n] ]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Alternately:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
sel' i n = lamE [pat] rhs<br />
where pat = tupP (map varP as)<br />
rhs = varE (as !! (i - 1))<br />
as = [ "a" ++ show j | j <- [1..n] ]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Convert the first n elements of a list to a tuple ==<br />
<br />
This example creates a tuple by extracting elemnts from a list. Taken from<br />
[http://www.xoltar.org/2003/aug/13/templateHaskellTupleSample.html www.xoltar.org]<br />
<br />
Use like so:<br />
<br />
> $(tuple 3) [1,2,3,4,5]<br />
(1,2,3)<br />
> $(tuple 2) [1,2]<br />
(1,2)<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
tuple :: Int -> ExpQ<br />
tuple n = [|\list -> $(tupE (exprs [|list|])) |]<br />
where<br />
exprs list = [infixE (Just (list))<br />
(varE "!!")<br />
(Just (litE $ integerL (toInteger num)))<br />
| num <- [0..(n - 1)]]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Printf ==<br />
This example taken from: http://haskell.cs.yale.edu/ghc/docs/6.0/html/users_guide/template-haskell.html<br />
<br />
Build it using a command similar to one of the following (depending on your environment):<br />
<br />
ghc/compiler/stage3/ghc-inplace --make -fglasgow-exts -package haskell-src main.hs -o main.exe<br />
ghc --make -fth Main.hs -o printfTest<br />
<br />
Main.hs:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
module Main where<br />
<br />
-- Import our template "pr"<br />
import Printf ( pr )<br />
<br />
-- The splice operator $ takes the Haskell source code<br />
-- generated at compile time by "pr" and splices it into<br />
-- the argument of "putStrLn".<br />
main = putStrLn ( $(pr "Hello") )<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Printf.hs:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
module Printf where<br />
<br />
-- Skeletal printf from the paper.<br />
-- It needs to be in a separate module to the one where<br />
-- you intend to use it.<br />
<br />
-- Import some Template Haskell syntax<br />
import Language.Haskell.THSyntax<br />
<br />
-- Describe a format string<br />
data Format = D | S | L String<br />
<br />
-- Parse a format string. This is left largely to you<br />
-- as we are here interested in building our first ever<br />
-- Template Haskell program and not in building printf.<br />
parse :: String -> [Format]<br />
parse s = [ L s ]<br />
<br />
-- Generate Haskell source code from a parsed representation<br />
-- of the format string. This code will be spliced into<br />
-- the module which calls "pr", at compile time.<br />
gen :: [Format] -> ExpQ<br />
gen [D] = [| \n -> show n |]<br />
gen [S] = [| \s -> s |]<br />
gen [L s] = stringE s<br />
<br />
-- Here we generate the Haskell code for the splice<br />
-- from an input format string.<br />
pr :: String -> ExpQ<br />
pr s = gen (parse s)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Handling Options with Templates ==<br />
A common idiom for treating a set of options, e.g. from GetOpt, is to define a datatype with all the flags and using a list over this datatype:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
data Options = B1 | B2 | V Integer<br />
<br />
options = [B1, V 3]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
While it's simple testing if a Boolean flag is set (simply use "elem"), it's harder to check if an option with an argument is set. It's even more tedious writing helper-functions to obtain the value from such an option since you have to explicitely "un-V" each. Here, Template Haskell can be (ab)used to reduce this a bit. The following example provides the module "OptionsTH" which can be reused regardless of the constructors in "Options". Let's start with showing how we'd like to be able to program. Notice that the resulting lists need some more treatment e.g. through "foldl".<br />
<br />
Options.hs:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
module Main where<br />
<br />
import OptionsTH<br />
import Language.Haskell.THSyntax<br />
<br />
data Options = B1 | B2 | V Int | S String deriving (Eq, Read, Show)<br />
<br />
options = [B1, V 3]<br />
<br />
main = do<br />
print foo -- test if B1 set: [True,False]<br />
print bar -- test if V present, w/o value: [False,True]<br />
print baz -- get value of V if available: [Nothing,Just 3]<br />
<br />
foo :: [Bool]<br />
-- Query constructor B1 which takes no arguments<br />
foo = map $(getopt (THNoArg (mkArg "B1" 0))) options<br />
<br />
bar :: [Bool]<br />
-- V is a unary constructor. Let mkArg generate the required<br />
-- wildcard-pattern "V _".<br />
bar = map $(getopt (THNoArg (mkArg "V" 1))) options<br />
<br />
-- Can't use a wildcard here!<br />
baz :: [(Maybe Int)]<br />
baz = map $(getopt (THArg (conP "V" [varP "x"]))) options<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
OptionsTH.hs<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
module OptionsTH where<br />
<br />
import Language.Haskell.THSyntax<br />
<br />
-- datatype for querying options:<br />
-- NoArg: Not interested in value (also applies to Boolean flags)<br />
-- Arg: Grep value of unary(!) constructor<br />
data Args = THNoArg Pat | THArg Pat<br />
<br />
getopt :: Args -> ExpQ<br />
getopt (THNoArg pat) = lamE [varP "y"] (caseE (varE "y") [cons0, cons1])<br />
where<br />
cons0 = match pat (normalB [| True |]) []<br />
cons1 = match wildP (normalB [| False |]) []<br />
<br />
-- bind "var" for later use!<br />
getopt (THArg pat@(ConP _ [VarP var])) = lamE [varP "y"] (caseE (varE "y") [cons0, cons1])<br />
where<br />
cons0 = match pat (normalB (appE [|Just|] (varE var))) []<br />
cons1 = match wildP (normalB [|Nothing|]) []<br />
<br />
mkArg :: String -> Int -> Pat<br />
mkArg k c = conP k (replicate c wildP)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
While the example might look contrived for the Boolean options which could have been tested much easier, it shows how both types of arguments can be treated in a similar way.<br />
<br />
=== Limitations ===<br />
<tt>getopt (THArg pat)</tt> is only able to treat unary constructors. See the pattern-binding: It matches exactly a single VarP.<br />
<br />
=== Improvements ===<br />
The following reduces things even a bit more, though I still don't know if I like it. It only works since <tt>c</tt> is either 0 or 1.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
mkArg k c = conP k (replicate c (varP "x"))<br />
<br />
baz = map $(getopt (THArg (mkArg "V" 1)))<br />
</haskell><br />
-- VolkerStolz<br />
<br />
== Generic constructor for records ==<br />
<br />
I have a large number of record types like this, of different length:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
data PGD = PGD {<br />
pgdXUnitBase :: !Word8,<br />
pgdYUnitBase :: !Word8,<br />
pgdXLUnitsperUnitBase :: !Word16<br />
}<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Currently I use GHC's Binary module to read them from files; it can handle<br />
types like <tt>(Word8, (Word8, Word16))</tt>, but there was no easy way to generate<br />
the correct amount of "uncurry" calls for automatically grabbing each element.<br />
<br />
With Template Haskell, the instance declarations are now written as such:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
instance Binary PGD where<br />
get bh = do a <- get bh ; return $ $(constrRecord PGD) a<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Here the trick lies in constrRecord, which is defined as:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
constrRecord x = reify exp where<br />
reify = \(Just r) -> appE r $ conE $ last args<br />
exp = foldl (dot) uncur $ replicate terms uncur<br />
terms = ((length args) `div` 2) - 2<br />
dot x y = (Just $ infixE x (varE ".") y)<br />
uncur = (Just [|uncurry|])<br />
args = words . show $ typeOf x<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />

<hr />
<div>'''[http://www.haskell.org/th/ Template Haskell]''' is a [[GHC]] extension to Haskell that adds compile-time metaprogramming facilities. The original design can be found here: http://research.microsoft.com/~simonpj/papers/meta-haskell/ . It is [http://haskell.cs.yale.edu/ghc/docs/6.2/html/users_guide/template-haskell.html included] in GHC version 6. If you start working with Template Haskell you'll probably want to join the [http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/template-haskell Template Haskell mailing list].<br />
<br />
This page hopes to be a more central and organized repository of TH related things. However, at this point most things should probably go to/through the mailing list first.<br />
<br />
----<br />
=What is Template Haskell?=<br />
Template Haskell is an extension to Haskell 98 that allows you to do type-safe compile-time meta-programming, with Haskell both as the manipulating language and the language being manipulated. <br />
<br />
Intuitively Template Haskell provides new language features that allow us to convert back and forth between concrete syntax, i.e. what you would type when you write normal Haskell code, and abstract syntax trees. These abstract syntax trees are represented using Haskell datatypes and, at compile time, they can be manipulated by Haskell code. This allows you to reify (convert from concrete syntax to an abstract syntax tree) some code, transform it and splice it back in (convert back again), or even to produce completely new code and splice that in, while the compiler is compiling your module. <br />
<br />
There is a [http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/template-haskell mailing list specifically for Template Haskell]. It's worth joining if you start to use TH.<br />

What are you doing/planning to do/have done with Template Haskell?<br />
<br />
* I have written a primitive (untyped) binding to the Objective-C runtime system on Mac OS X. It needs just TH, no "stub files" are created, no seperate utilities are required. Initial snapshot is at http://www.kfunigraz.ac.at/imawww/thaller/wolfgang/HOC020103.tar.bz2 -- WolfgangThaller<br />
<br />
* I am writing Template Greencard - a reimplementation of GreenCard using TH. Many bits work out really nicely. A few bits didn't work so nicely - once I get some time to think, I'll try to persuade the TH folk to make some changes to fix some of these. -- AlastairReid<br />
<br />
* I'm writing Hacanon - a framework for automatic generation of C++ bindings. Read "automated Template Greencard for C++" (-: Darcs repo: http://www.ScannedInAvian.org/repos/hacanon - You'll need gccxml (http://www.gccxml.org/) to compile the exmples. - 27 Dec Lemmih.<br />
<br />
* Following other FFI tools developers, I see some future for Template HSFFIG, especially when it comes to autogenerate peek and poke methods for structures defined in C; may be useful for implementation of certain network protocols such as X11 where layout of messages is provided as C structure/union declaration. - 16 Dec 2005 DimitryGolubovsky<br />
<br />
* I am using Template Haskell as a mechanism to get parsed, typechecked code into an Ajax based Haskell Equational Reasoning tool [[Haskell Equational Reasoning Assistant]], as well as simplify the specification of equational relationships between pieces of code. There was a quicktime movie of the tool being used on http://www.gill-warbington.com/home/andy/share/hera1.html - AndyGill <br />
<br />
* I am working on functional metaprogramming techniques to enhance programming reliability and productivity, by reusing much of the existing compiler technology. Template Haskell is especially interesting for me because it permits to check size information of structures by the compiler, provided this information is available at compile time. This approach is especially appropriate for hardware designs, where the structures are fixed before the circuit starts operating. See our metaprogramming web page at http://www.infosun.fmi.uni-passau.de/cl/metaprog/ -- ChristophHerrmann(http://www.cs.st-and.ac.uk/~ch)<br />
<br />
* I am using Template Haskell to do type safe database access. I initially [http://www.nabble.com/Using-Template-Haskell-to-make-type-safe-database-access-td17027286.html proposed this on haskell-cafe]. I connect to the database at compile-time and let the database do SQL parsing and type inference. The result from parsing and type inference is used to build a type safe database query which can executed at run-time.

<br />
= Wish list =<br />
<br />
Things that Ian Lynagh (Igloo) mentioned in his paper ''Template Haskell: A Report From The Field'' in May 2003 (available [http://www.haskell.org/th/papers.html here]), by section:<br />
<br />
* Section 2 (curses)<br />
** The ability to splice names (into "foreign import" declarations, in particular)<br />
** The ability to add things to the export list from a splice(?)<br />
** The ability to use things defined at the toplevel of a module from splices in that same module (would require multi-stage compilation, as opposed to the current approach of expanding splices during typechecking)<br />
<br />
* Section 3 (deriving instances of classes)<br />
** <strike>First-class reification</strike> (the <hask>reify</hask> function)<br />
** A way to discover whether a data constructor was defined infix or prefix (which is necessary to derive instances for <hask>Read</hask> and <hask>Show</hask> as outlined in [http://www.haskell.org/onlinereport/derived.html The Haskell 98 Report: Specification of Derived Instances]) (if there is a way, [http://www-users.cs.york.ac.uk/~ndm/derive/ Derive] seems ignorant of it)<br />
** Type/context splicing (in <hask>instance</hask> headers in particular)<br />
<br />
* Section 4 (printf)<br />
** He says something to the effect that a pattern-matching form of the quotation brackets would be cool if it was expressive enough to be useful, but that this would be hard. (Don't expect this anytime soon.)<br />
<br />
* Section 5 (fraskell)<br />
** Type information for quoted code (so that simplification can be done safely even with overloaded operations, like, oh, <hask>(+)</hask>)<br />
<br />
* Section 6 (pan)<br />
** Type info again, and strictnes info too (this one seems a bit pie-in-the-sky...)<br />
<br />
(Please leave the implemented ones here, but crossed off.)<br />
<br />
Any other features that may be nice, and TH projects you'd want to see.<br />
<br />
* A TH tutorial (mainly a distillation and update of ''Template Meta-programming in Haskell'' at this point)<br />
* Write Haddock documentation for the Template Haskell library.<br />
* Make `reify` on a class return a list of the instances of that class (http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/template-haskell/2005-December/000503.html). (See also [http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/1577 GHC ticket #1577].)<br />
* A set of simple examples on this wiki page<br />
* A TH T-shirt with new logo to wear at conferences<br />
* (Long-term) Unify Language.Haskell.Syntax with Language.Haskell.TH.Syntax so there's just one way to do things<br />

<br />
== What to do when you can't splice that there ==<br />
<br />
When you try to splice something into the middle of a template and find that you just can't, instead of getting frustrated about it, why not use the template to see what it would look like in longhand? <br />
<br />
First, an excerpt from a module of my own. I, by the way, am SamB.<br />
<haskell><br />
{-# OPTIONS_GHC -fglasgow-exts -fth #-}<br />
<br />
module MMixMemory where<br />
<br />
import Data.Int<br />
import Data.Word<br />
<br />
class (Integral int, Integral word)<br />
=> SignConversion int word | int -> word, word -> int where<br />
<br />
toSigned :: word -> int<br />
toSigned = fromIntegral<br />
toUnsigned :: int -> word<br />
toUnsigned = fromIntegral<br />
<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Say I want to find out what I need to do to splice in the types for an instance declaration for the SignConversion class, so that I can declare instances for Int8 with Word8 through Int64 with Word64. So, I start up good-ol' GHCi and do the following:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
$ ghci -fth -fglasgow-exts<br />
Prelude> :l MMixMemory<br />
*MMixMemory> :m +Language.Haskell.TH.Syntax<br />
*MMixMemory Language.Haskell.TH.Syntax> runQ [d| instance SignConversion Int Word where |] >>= print<br />
[InstanceD [] (AppT (AppT (ConT MMixMemory.SignConversion) (ConT GHC.Base.Int)) (ConT GHC.Word.Word)) []]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Why does <tt>runQ</tt> crash if I try to reify something? ==<br />
<br />
This program will fail with an error message when you run it:<br />
<haskell><br />
main = do info <- runQ (reify (mkName "Bool"))<br />
putStrLn (pprint info)<br />
</haskell><br />
Reason: <tt>reify</tt> consults the type environment, and that is not available at run-time. The type of <tt>reify</tt> is <br />
<haskell><br />
reify :: Quasi m => Q a -> m a<br />
</haskell><br />
The IO monad is a poor-man's instance of <tt>Quasi</tt>; it can allocate unique names and gather error messages, but it can't do <tt>reify</tt>. This error should really be caught statically.<br />
<br />
Here's an [http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/glasgow-haskell-users/2006-August/010844.html email thread with more details].<br />

-----------------<br />
= Examples =<br />
== Select from a tuple ==<br />
<br />
An example to select an element from a tuple of arbitrary size. Taken from [http://www.haskell.org/th/papers/meta-haskell.ps this paper].<br />
<br />
Use like so:<br />
<br />
> $(sel 2 3) ('a','b','c')<br />
'b'<br />
> $(sel 3 4) ('a','b','c','d')<br />
'c'<br />
<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
sel :: Int -> Int -> ExpQ<br />
sel i n = [| \x -> $(caseE [| x |] [alt]) |]<br />
where alt :: MatchQ<br />
alt = match pat (normalB rhs) []<br />
<br />
pat :: Pat<br />
pat = tupP (map varP as)<br />
<br />
rhs :: ExpQ<br />
rhs = varE(as !! (i -1)) -- !! is 0 based<br />
<br />
as :: [String]<br />
as = ["a" ++ show i | i <- [1..n] ]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Alternately:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
sel' i n = lamE [pat] rhs<br />
where pat = tupP (map varP as)<br />
rhs = varE (as !! (i - 1))<br />
as = [ "a" ++ show j | j <- [1..n] ]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Convert the first n elements of a list to a tuple ==<br />
<br />
This example creates a tuple by extracting elemnts from a list. Taken from<br />
[http://www.xoltar.org/2003/aug/13/templateHaskellTupleSample.html www.xoltar.org]<br />
<br />
Use like so:<br />
<br />
> $(tuple 3) [1,2,3,4,5]<br />
(1,2,3)<br />
> $(tuple 2) [1,2]<br />
(1,2)<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
tuple :: Int -> ExpQ<br />
tuple n = [|\list -> $(tupE (exprs [|list|])) |]<br />
where<br />
exprs list = [infixE (Just (list))<br />
(varE "!!")<br />
(Just (litE $ integerL (toInteger num)))<br />
| num <- [0..(n - 1)]]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Printf ==<br />
This example taken from: http://haskell.cs.yale.edu/ghc/docs/6.0/html/users_guide/template-haskell.html<br />
<br />
Build it using a command similar to one of the following (depending on your environment):<br />
<br />
ghc/compiler/stage3/ghc-inplace --make -fglasgow-exts -package haskell-src main.hs -o main.exe<br />
ghc --make -fth Main.hs -o printfTest<br />
<br />
Main.hs:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
module Main where<br />
<br />
-- Import our template "pr"<br />
import Printf ( pr )<br />
<br />
-- The splice operator $ takes the Haskell source code<br />
-- generated at compile time by "pr" and splices it into<br />
-- the argument of "putStrLn".<br />
main = putStrLn ( $(pr "Hello") )<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Printf.hs:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
module Printf where<br />
<br />
-- Skeletal printf from the paper.<br />
-- It needs to be in a separate module to the one where<br />
-- you intend to use it.<br />
<br />
-- Import some Template Haskell syntax<br />
import Language.Haskell.THSyntax<br />
<br />
-- Describe a format string<br />
data Format = D | S | L String<br />
<br />
-- Parse a format string. This is left largely to you<br />
-- as we are here interested in building our first ever<br />
-- Template Haskell program and not in building printf.<br />
parse :: String -> [Format]<br />
parse s = [ L s ]<br />
<br />
-- Generate Haskell source code from a parsed representation<br />
-- of the format string. This code will be spliced into<br />
-- the module which calls "pr", at compile time.<br />
gen :: [Format] -> ExpQ<br />
gen [D] = [| \n -> show n |]<br />
gen [S] = [| \s -> s |]<br />
gen [L s] = stringE s<br />
<br />
-- Here we generate the Haskell code for the splice<br />
-- from an input format string.<br />
pr :: String -> ExpQ<br />
pr s = gen (parse s)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Handling Options with Templates ==<br />
A common idiom for treating a set of options, e.g. from GetOpt, is to define a datatype with all the flags and using a list over this datatype:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
data Options = B1 | B2 | V Integer<br />
<br />
options = [B1, V 3]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
While it's simple testing if a Boolean flag is set (simply use "elem"), it's harder to check if an option with an argument is set. It's even more tedious writing helper-functions to obtain the value from such an option since you have to explicitely "un-V" each. Here, Template Haskell can be (ab)used to reduce this a bit. The following example provides the module "OptionsTH" which can be reused regardless of the constructors in "Options". Let's start with showing how we'd like to be able to program. Notice that the resulting lists need some more treatment e.g. through "foldl".<br />
<br />
Options.hs:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
module Main where<br />
<br />
import OptionsTH<br />
import Language.Haskell.THSyntax<br />
<br />
data Options = B1 | B2 | V Int | S String deriving (Eq, Read, Show)<br />
<br />
options = [B1, V 3]<br />
<br />
main = do<br />
print foo -- test if B1 set: [True,False]<br />
print bar -- test if V present, w/o value: [False,True]<br />
print baz -- get value of V if available: [Nothing,Just 3]<br />
<br />
foo :: [Bool]<br />
-- Query constructor B1 which takes no arguments<br />
foo = map $(getopt (THNoArg (mkArg "B1" 0))) options<br />
<br />
bar :: [Bool]<br />
-- V is a unary constructor. Let mkArg generate the required<br />
-- wildcard-pattern "V _".<br />
bar = map $(getopt (THNoArg (mkArg "V" 1))) options<br />
<br />
-- Can't use a wildcard here!<br />
baz :: [(Maybe Int)]<br />
baz = map $(getopt (THArg (conP "V" [varP "x"]))) options<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
OptionsTH.hs<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
module OptionsTH where<br />
<br />
import Language.Haskell.THSyntax<br />
<br />
-- datatype for querying options:<br />
-- NoArg: Not interested in value (also applies to Boolean flags)<br />
-- Arg: Grep value of unary(!) constructor<br />
data Args = THNoArg Pat | THArg Pat<br />
<br />
getopt :: Args -> ExpQ<br />
getopt (THNoArg pat) = lamE [varP "y"] (caseE (varE "y") [cons0, cons1])<br />
where<br />
cons0 = match pat (normalB [| True |]) []<br />
cons1 = match wildP (normalB [| False |]) []<br />
<br />
-- bind "var" for later use!<br />
getopt (THArg pat@(ConP _ [VarP var])) = lamE [varP "y"] (caseE (varE "y") [cons0, cons1])<br />
where<br />
cons0 = match pat (normalB (appE [|Just|] (varE var))) []<br />
cons1 = match wildP (normalB [|Nothing|]) []<br />
<br />
mkArg :: String -> Int -> Pat<br />
mkArg k c = conP k (replicate c wildP)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
While the example might look contrived for the Boolean options which could have been tested much easier, it shows how both types of arguments can be treated in a similar way.<br />
<br />
=== Limitations ===<br />
<tt>getopt (THArg pat)</tt> is only able to treat unary constructors. See the pattern-binding: It matches exactly a single VarP.<br />
<br />
=== Improvements ===<br />
The following reduces things even a bit more, though I still don't know if I like it. It only works since <tt>c</tt> is either 0 or 1.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
mkArg k c = conP k (replicate c (varP "x"))<br />
<br />
baz = map $(getopt (THArg (mkArg "V" 1)))<br />
</haskell><br />
-- VolkerStolz<br />
<br />
== Generic constructor for records ==<br />
<br />
I have a large number of record types like this, of different length:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
data PGD = PGD {<br />
pgdXUnitBase :: !Word8,<br />
pgdYUnitBase :: !Word8,<br />
pgdXLUnitsperUnitBase :: !Word16<br />
}<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Currently I use GHC's Binary module to read them from files; it can handle<br />
types like <tt>(Word8, (Word8, Word16))</tt>, but there was no easy way to generate<br />
the correct amount of "uncurry" calls for automatically grabbing each element.<br />
<br />
With Template Haskell, the instance declarations are now written as such:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
instance Binary PGD where<br />
get bh = do a <- get bh ; return $ $(constrRecord PGD) a<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Here the trick lies in constrRecord, which is defined as:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
constrRecord x = reify exp where<br />
reify = \(Just r) -> appE r $ conE $ last args<br />
exp = foldl (dot) uncur $ replicate terms uncur<br />
terms = ((length args) `div` 2) - 2<br />
dot x y = (Just $ infixE x (varE ".") y)<br />
uncur = (Just [|uncurry|])<br />
args = words . show $ typeOf x<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />

<div>'''[http://www.haskell.org/th/ Template Haskell]''' is a [[GHC]] extension to Haskell that adds compile-time metaprogramming facilities. The original design can be found here: http://research.microsoft.com/~simonpj/papers/meta-haskell/ . It is [http://haskell.cs.yale.edu/ghc/docs/6.2/html/users_guide/template-haskell.html included] in GHC version 6. If you start working with Template Haskell you'll probably want to join the [http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/template-haskell Template Haskell mailing list].<br />
<br />
This page hopes to be a more central and organized repository of TH related things. However, at this point most things should probably go to/through the mailing list first.<br />
<br />
----<br />
=What is Template Haskell?=<br />
Template Haskell is an extension to Haskell 98 that allows you to do type-safe compile-time meta-programming, with Haskell both as the manipulating language and the language being manipulated. <br />
<br />
Intuitively Template Haskell provides new language features that allow us to convert back and forth between concrete syntax, i.e. what you would type when you write normal Haskell code, and abstract syntax trees. These abstract syntax trees are represented using Haskell datatypes and, at compile time, they can be manipulated by Haskell code. This allows you to reify (convert from concrete syntax to an abstract syntax tree) some code, transform it and splice it back in (convert back again), or even to produce completely new code and splice that in, while the compiler is compiling your module. <br />
<br />
There is a [http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/template-haskell mailing list specifically for Template Haskell]. It's worth joining if you start to use TH.<br />

* I have written a primitive (untyped) binding to the Objective-C runtime system on Mac OS X. It needs just TH, no "stub files" are created, no seperate utilities are required. Initial snapshot is at http://www.kfunigraz.ac.at/imawww/thaller/wolfgang/HOC020103.tar.bz2 -- WolfgangThaller<br />
<br />
* I am writing Template Greencard - a reimplementation of GreenCard using TH. Many bits work out really nicely. A few bits didn't work so nicely - once I get some time to think, I'll try to persuade the TH folk to make some changes to fix some of these. -- AlastairReid<br />
<br />
* I'm writing Hacanon - a framework for automatic generation of C++ bindings. Read "automated Template Greencard for C++" (-: Darcs repo: http://www.ScannedInAvian.org/repos/hacanon - You'll need gccxml (http://www.gccxml.org/) to compile the exmples. - 27 Dec Lemmih.<br />
<br />
* Following other FFI tools developers, I see some future for Template HSFFIG, especially when it comes to autogenerate peek and poke methods for structures defined in C; may be useful for implementation of certain network protocols such as X11 where layout of messages is provided as C structure/union declaration. - 16 Dec 2005 DimitryGolubovsky<br />
<br />
* I am using Template Haskell as a mechanism to get parsed, typechecked code into an Ajax based Haskell Equational Reasoning tool [[Haskell Equational Reasoning Assistant]], as well as simplify the specification of equational relationships between pieces of code. There was a quicktime movie of the tool being used on http://www.gill-warbington.com/home/andy/share/hera1.html - AndyGill <br />
<br />
* I am working on functional metaprogramming techniques to enhance programming reliability and productivity, by reusing much of the existing compiler technology. Template Haskell is especially interesting for me because it permits to check size information of structures by the compiler, provided this information is available at compile time. This approach is especially appropriate for hardware designs, where the structures are fixed before the circuit starts operating. See our metaprogramming web page at http://www.infosun.fmi.uni-passau.de/cl/metaprog/ -- ChristophHerrmann(http://www.cs.st-and.ac.uk/~ch)<br />

= Known Bugs =<br />
<br />
Take a look at the [http://cvs.haskell.org/trac/ghc/query?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&component=Template+Haskell&order=priority open bugs against Template Haskell] on the GHC bug tracker.<br />
<br />
The bug you're most likely to run into is [http://cvs.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/651 Template Haskell does not work with profiling].<br />
<br />
= Wish list =<br />
<br />
Things that Ian Lynagh (Igloo) mentioned in his paper ''Template Haskell: A Report From The Field'' in May 2003 (available [http://www.haskell.org/th/papers.html here]), by section:<br />
<br />
* Section 2 (curses)<br />
** The ability to splice names (into "foreign import" declarations, in particular)<br />
** The ability to add things to the export list from a splice(?)<br />
** The ability to use things defined at the toplevel of a module from splices in that same module (would require multi-stage compilation, as opposed to the current approach of expanding splices during typechecking)<br />
<br />
* Section 3 (deriving instances of classes)<br />
** <strike>First-class reification</strike> (the <hask>reify</hask> function)<br />
** A way to discover whether a data constructor was defined infix or prefix (which is necessary to derive instances for <hask>Read</hask> and <hask>Show</hask> as outlined in [http://www.haskell.org/onlinereport/derived.html The Haskell 98 Report: Specification of Derived Instances]) (if there is a way, [http://www-users.cs.york.ac.uk/~ndm/derive/ Derive] seems ignorant of it)<br />
** Type/context splicing (in <hask>instance</hask> headers in particular)<br />
<br />
* Section 4 (printf)<br />
** He says something to the effect that a pattern-matching form of the quotation brackets would be cool if it was expressive enough to be useful, but that this would be hard. (Don't expect this anytime soon.)<br />
<br />
* Section 5 (fraskell)<br />
** Type information for quoted code (so that simplification can be done safely even with overloaded operations, like, oh, <hask>(+)</hask>)<br />
<br />
* Section 6 (pan)<br />
** Type info again, and strictnes info too (this one seems a bit pie-in-the-sky...)<br />
<br />
(Please leave the implemented ones here, but crossed off.)<br />
<br />
Any other features that may be nice, and TH projects you'd want to see.<br />
<br />
* A TH tutorial (mainly a distillation and update of ''Template Meta-programming in Haskell'' at this point)<br />
* Write Haddock documentation for the Template Haskell library.<br />
* Make `reify` on a class return a list of the instances of that class (http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/template-haskell/2005-December/000503.html). (See also [http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/1577 GHC ticket #1577].)<br />
* A set of simple examples on this wiki page<br />
* A TH T-shirt with new logo to wear at conferences<br />
* (Long-term) Unify Language.Haskell.Syntax with Language.Haskell.TH.Syntax so there's just one way to do things<br />

<br />
== What to do when you can't splice that there ==<br />
<br />
When you try to splice something into the middle of a template and find that you just can't, instead of getting frustrated about it, why not use the template to see what it would look like in longhand? <br />
<br />
First, an excerpt from a module of my own. I, by the way, am SamB.<br />
<haskell><br />
{-# OPTIONS_GHC -fglasgow-exts -fth #-}<br />
<br />
module MMixMemory where<br />
<br />
import Data.Int<br />
import Data.Word<br />
<br />
class (Integral int, Integral word)<br />
=> SignConversion int word | int -> word, word -> int where<br />
<br />
toSigned :: word -> int<br />
toSigned = fromIntegral<br />
toUnsigned :: int -> word<br />
toUnsigned = fromIntegral<br />
<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Say I want to find out what I need to do to splice in the types for an instance declaration for the SignConversion class, so that I can declare instances for Int8 with Word8 through Int64 with Word64. So, I start up good-ol' GHCi and do the following:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
$ ghci -fth -fglasgow-exts<br />
Prelude> :l MMixMemory<br />
*MMixMemory> :m +Language.Haskell.TH.Syntax<br />
*MMixMemory Language.Haskell.TH.Syntax> runQ [d| instance SignConversion Int Word where |] >>= print<br />
[InstanceD [] (AppT (AppT (ConT MMixMemory.SignConversion) (ConT GHC.Base.Int)) (ConT GHC.Word.Word)) []]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Why does <tt>runQ</tt> crash if I try to reify something? ==<br />
<br />
This program will fail with an error message when you run it:<br />
<haskell><br />
main = do info <- runQ (reify (mkName "Bool"))<br />
putStrLn (pprint info)<br />
</haskell><br />
Reason: <tt>reify</tt> consults the type environment, and that is not available at run-time. The type of <tt>reify</tt> is <br />
<haskell><br />
reify :: Quasi m => Q a -> m a<br />
</haskell><br />
The IO monad is a poor-man's instance of <tt>Quasi</tt>; it can allocate unique names and gather error messages, but it can't do <tt>reify</tt>. This error should really be caught statically.<br />
<br />
Here's an [http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/glasgow-haskell-users/2006-August/010844.html email thread with more details].<br />

-----------------<br />
= Examples =<br />
== Select from a tuple ==<br />
<br />
An example to select an element from a tuple of arbitrary size. Taken from [http://www.haskell.org/th/papers/meta-haskell.ps this paper].<br />
<br />
Use like so:<br />
<br />
> $(sel 2 3) ('a','b','c')<br />
'b'<br />
> $(sel 3 4) ('a','b','c','d')<br />
'c'<br />
<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
sel :: Int -> Int -> ExpQ<br />
sel i n = [| \x -> $(caseE [| x |] [alt]) |]<br />
where alt :: MatchQ<br />
alt = match pat (normalB rhs) []<br />
<br />
pat :: Pat<br />
pat = tupP (map varP as)<br />
<br />
rhs :: ExpQ<br />
rhs = varE(as !! (i -1)) -- !! is 0 based<br />
<br />
as :: [String]<br />
as = ["a" ++ show i | i <- [1..n] ]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Alternately:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
sel' i n = lamE [pat] rhs<br />
where pat = tupP (map varP as)<br />
rhs = varE (as !! (i - 1))<br />
as = [ "a" ++ show j | j <- [1..n] ]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Convert the first n elements of a list to a tuple ==<br />
<br />
This example creates a tuple by extracting elemnts from a list. Taken from<br />
[http://www.xoltar.org/2003/aug/13/templateHaskellTupleSample.html www.xoltar.org]<br />
<br />
Use like so:<br />
<br />
> $(tuple 3) [1,2,3,4,5]<br />
(1,2,3)<br />
> $(tuple 2) [1,2]<br />
(1,2)<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
tuple :: Int -> ExpQ<br />
tuple n = [|\list -> $(tupE (exprs [|list|])) |]<br />
where<br />
exprs list = [infixE (Just (list))<br />
(varE "!!")<br />
(Just (litE $ integerL (toInteger num)))<br />
| num <- [0..(n - 1)]]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Printf ==<br />
This example taken from: http://haskell.cs.yale.edu/ghc/docs/6.0/html/users_guide/template-haskell.html<br />
<br />
Build it using a command similar to one of the following (depending on your environment):<br />
<br />
ghc/compiler/stage3/ghc-inplace --make -fglasgow-exts -package haskell-src main.hs -o main.exe<br />
ghc --make -fth Main.hs -o printfTest<br />
<br />
Main.hs:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
module Main where<br />
<br />
-- Import our template "pr"<br />
import Printf ( pr )<br />
<br />
-- The splice operator $ takes the Haskell source code<br />
-- generated at compile time by "pr" and splices it into<br />
-- the argument of "putStrLn".<br />
main = putStrLn ( $(pr "Hello") )<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Printf.hs:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
module Printf where<br />
<br />
-- Skeletal printf from the paper.<br />
-- It needs to be in a separate module to the one where<br />
-- you intend to use it.<br />
<br />
-- Import some Template Haskell syntax<br />
import Language.Haskell.THSyntax<br />
<br />
-- Describe a format string<br />
data Format = D | S | L String<br />
<br />
-- Parse a format string. This is left largely to you<br />
-- as we are here interested in building our first ever<br />
-- Template Haskell program and not in building printf.<br />
parse :: String -> [Format]<br />
parse s = [ L s ]<br />
<br />
-- Generate Haskell source code from a parsed representation<br />
-- of the format string. This code will be spliced into<br />
-- the module which calls "pr", at compile time.<br />
gen :: [Format] -> ExpQ<br />
gen [D] = [| \n -> show n |]<br />
gen [S] = [| \s -> s |]<br />
gen [L s] = stringE s<br />
<br />
-- Here we generate the Haskell code for the splice<br />
-- from an input format string.<br />
pr :: String -> ExpQ<br />
pr s = gen (parse s)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
== Handling Options with Templates ==<br />
A common idiom for treating a set of options, e.g. from GetOpt, is to define a datatype with all the flags and using a list over this datatype:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
data Options = B1 | B2 | V Integer<br />
<br />
options = [B1, V 3]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
While it's simple testing if a Boolean flag is set (simply use "elem"), it's harder to check if an option with an argument is set. It's even more tedious writing helper-functions to obtain the value from such an option since you have to explicitely "un-V" each. Here, Template Haskell can be (ab)used to reduce this a bit. The following example provides the module "OptionsTH" which can be reused regardless of the constructors in "Options". Let's start with showing how we'd like to be able to program. Notice that the resulting lists need some more treatment e.g. through "foldl".<br />
<br />
Options.hs:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
module Main where<br />
<br />
import OptionsTH<br />
import Language.Haskell.THSyntax<br />
<br />
data Options = B1 | B2 | V Int | S String deriving (Eq, Read, Show)<br />
<br />
options = [B1, V 3]<br />
<br />
main = do<br />
print foo -- test if B1 set: [True,False]<br />
print bar -- test if V present, w/o value: [False,True]<br />
print baz -- get value of V if available: [Nothing,Just 3]<br />
<br />
foo :: [Bool]<br />
-- Query constructor B1 which takes no arguments<br />
foo = map $(getopt (THNoArg (mkArg "B1" 0))) options<br />
<br />
bar :: [Bool]<br />
-- V is a unary constructor. Let mkArg generate the required<br />
-- wildcard-pattern "V _".<br />
bar = map $(getopt (THNoArg (mkArg "V" 1))) options<br />
<br />
-- Can't use a wildcard here!<br />
baz :: [(Maybe Int)]<br />
baz = map $(getopt (THArg (conP "V" [varP "x"]))) options<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
OptionsTH.hs<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
module OptionsTH where<br />
<br />
import Language.Haskell.THSyntax<br />
<br />
-- datatype for querying options:<br />
-- NoArg: Not interested in value (also applies to Boolean flags)<br />
-- Arg: Grep value of unary(!) constructor<br />
data Args = THNoArg Pat | THArg Pat<br />
<br />
getopt :: Args -> ExpQ<br />
getopt (THNoArg pat) = lamE [varP "y"] (caseE (varE "y") [cons0, cons1])<br />
where<br />
cons0 = match pat (normalB [| True |]) []<br />
cons1 = match wildP (normalB [| False |]) []<br />
<br />
-- bind "var" for later use!<br />
getopt (THArg pat@(ConP _ [VarP var])) = lamE [varP "y"] (caseE (varE "y") [cons0, cons1])<br />
where<br />
cons0 = match pat (normalB (appE [|Just|] (varE var))) []<br />
cons1 = match wildP (normalB [|Nothing|]) []<br />
<br />
mkArg :: String -> Int -> Pat<br />
mkArg k c = conP k (replicate c wildP)<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
While the example might look contrived for the Boolean options which could have been tested much easier, it shows how both types of arguments can be treated in a similar way.<br />
<br />
=== Limitations ===<br />
<tt>getopt (THArg pat)</tt> is only able to treat unary constructors. See the pattern-binding: It matches exactly a single VarP.<br />
<br />
=== Improvements ===<br />
The following reduces things even a bit more, though I still don't know if I like it. It only works since <tt>c</tt> is either 0 or 1.<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
mkArg k c = conP k (replicate c (varP "x"))<br />
<br />
baz = map $(getopt (THArg (mkArg "V" 1)))<br />
</haskell><br />
-- VolkerStolz<br />
<br />
== Generic constructor for records ==<br />
<br />
I have a large number of record types like this, of different length:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
data PGD = PGD {<br />
pgdXUnitBase :: !Word8,<br />
pgdYUnitBase :: !Word8,<br />
pgdXLUnitsperUnitBase :: !Word16<br />
}<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Currently I use GHC's Binary module to read them from files; it can handle<br />
types like <tt>(Word8, (Word8, Word16))</tt>, but there was no easy way to generate<br />
the correct amount of "uncurry" calls for automatically grabbing each element.<br />
<br />
With Template Haskell, the instance declarations are now written as such:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
instance Binary PGD where<br />
get bh = do a <- get bh ; return $ $(constrRecord PGD) a<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
Here the trick lies in constrRecord, which is defined as:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
constrRecord x = reify exp where<br />
reify = \(Just r) -> appE r $ conE $ last args<br />
exp = foldl (dot) uncur $ replicate terms uncur<br />
terms = ((length args) `div` 2) - 2<br />
dot x y = (Just $ infixE x (varE ".") y)<br />
uncur = (Just [|uncurry|])<br />
args = words . show $ typeOf x<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />

<br />
==[[Template haskell/Instance deriving example|Instance deriving example]]==<br />
An example using a 'deriving function' to generate a method instance <br />
per constructor of a type. The deriving function provides the body of the<br />
method.<br />
<br />
Note that this example assumes that the functions of the class take a parameter that is the same type as instance is parameterized with. <br />

<div>My name is Johannes Ahlmann, and I go by the nick of "jethr0" in the IRC channel.<br />

So far i've toyed around with many Haskell concepts, including the obligatory [http://haskell.org/tmrwiki/JohannesAhlmann Ray Tracer], some Genetic Algorithms and Neural Networks.<br />
<br />
I took part in the [http://www.icfpcontest.org/ 2007 ICFP contest] in the team [http://homes.esat.kuleuven.be/~cpoucet/icfp2007.html Lazy Bottoms] placing 56th of 859 teams and although I didn't contribute by far as much as I would have wanted, it still was a lot of fun and definitely worth the coding marathon.<br />

I'm using a StateT monad inside a list monad for backtracking. The State monad keeps track of the digits associated with characters and also a carry state, that remembers the carried number from prior additions.<br />
<br />
Several constraints are already implemented (like leading digits not being zero, all associations being unique), but of course there could be lot added (checking for zero, even/odd-ness, ...)<br />
<br />
Solution should be far quicker than generic brute-force/backtracking since it tries to fail as early as possible and with more elaborate constraints it should become even faster!<br />
<br />
I couldn't be bothered to write yet another regexp/parser, as that didn't really interest me.<br />

<br />
I'm using a StateT monad inside a list monad for backtracking. The State monad keeps track of the digits associated with characters and also a carry state, that remembers the carried number from prior additions.<br />
<br />
Several constraints are already implemented (like leading digits not being zero, all associations being unique), but of course there could be lot added (checking for zero, even/odd-ness, ...)<br />
<br />
Solution should be far quicker than generic brute-force/backtracking since it tries to fail as early as possible and with more elaborate constraints it should become even faster!<br />
<br />
I couldn't be bothered to write yet another regexp/parser, as that didn't really interest me.<br />

The object of this quiz was to solve cryptarithmetic problems, where one assigns digits to letters to make, for instance, 'two + two = four' true when the substitutions are made.<br />

I'm using a StateT monad inside a list monad for backtracking. The State monad keeps track of the digits associated with characters and also a carry state, that remembers the carried number from prior additions.<br />
<br />
Several constraints are already implemented (like leading digits not being zero, all associations being unique), but of course there could be lot added (checking for zero, even/odd-ness, ...)<br />
<br />
Solution should be far quicker than generic brute-force/backtracking since it tries to fail as early as possible and with more elaborate constraints it should become even faster!<br />
<br />
I couldn't be bothered to write yet another regexp/parser, as that didn't really interest me.<br />

<div>Here's an interesting question: will the program go faster if we replace all those <hask>(n >)</hask> expressions with <hask>(\x -> floor (sqrt n) > x)</hask>?<br />
<br />
On one hand, a composite integer cannot possess a factor greater than its square root.<br />
<br />
On the other hand, since the list we're looking through contains all possible prime numbers, we are guaranteed to find a factor or an exact match eventually, so do we need the <hask>takeWhile</hask> at all?<br />
<br />
Throwing this over to somebody with a bigger brain than me...<br />
<br />
[[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 16:41, 5 February 2007 (UTC)<br />
<br />
a composite can indeed have factors greater than its square root, and indeed most do. what you mean is that a composite will definitely have at least one factor smaller-equal than its square root.<br />
<br />
why not use <hask>(\x -> n > x*x)</hask> --[[User:JohannesAhlmann|Johannes Ahlmann]] 21:18, 5 February 2007 (UTC)</div>JohannesAhlmannhttps://wiki.haskell.org/Regular_expressionsRegular expressions2007-01-24T16:59:07Z<p>JohannesAhlmann: maybe implement Thompson NFA for regular expression library</p>

<div>I just came across [http://swtch.com/~rsc/regexp/regexp1.html this article on Thompson Non-Finite Automata] which presents an alternative implementation (to the one supposedly used in perl, ruby, python) which is MAAANY times faster.<br />

Seing how badly we did in the shootout initially, wouldn't it be grand if "we" implemented this algorithm and could then outrun every other language WRT regular expressions, with a native haskell library...<br />

<br />
* Is this a good place to ask questions? [[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 15:30, 18 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
** not yet at least. try the #haskell irc channel on freenode which is usually manned by at least a few very helpfull people. alternatively try the [http://haskell.org/pipermail/haskell-cafe/ haskell-cafe] mailing list --[[User:JohannesAhlmann|Johannes Ahlmann]] 12:29, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
*** I tried the IRC channel. 300+ people and nobody speaking. Not very helpful. [[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 13:23, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
<br />
Hmm, that sounded like a 'no'... OK, I'm going to add a few 'real' questions, and see if that gets any more of a response... [[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 11:47, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
<br />
* Which is faster? <hask>putStr (xs ++ ys ++ xs)</hask> or <hask>putStr xs; putStr ys; putStr zs</hask>? How much of a difference does it make? [[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 11:47, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
** hmm, <hask>(++)</hask> is a very slow operation which is O(n) in the length of the first string. for short strings the difference should be small, for very long string you'll see a big difference. concrete timing depends on putStr... --[[User:JohannesAhlmann|Johannes Ahlmann]] 12:29, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
*** <hask>(++)</hask> is right-associative when there's several, resulting in the fastest possible performance. (I understand this is why the <hask>Show</hask> class is so damn weird...) Even so, I wonder if it's more efficient to join strings or use real I/O... [[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 13:23, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
<br />
* Haskell apparently allows you to write functions with bizarre names like '++' or '***'. What are the rules for this? Which characters can or can't you use? Are you ''required'' to give a fixity declaration first, or can you just use them? [[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 11:47, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
** please refer the [[Language_and_library_specification]] under [http://haskell.org/onlinereport/lexemes.html#ids "Identifiers and Operators"]. variable identifiers start with a lowercase letter, constructor Identifiers with an uppercase letter and both can contain underscores, single quotes, letters and digits; , operators are formed from one or more of <hask>"!#$%&*+./<=>?@\^|-~"</hask> (plus a special case involving <hask>(:)</hask>). lacking fixity declarations, the default [http://haskell.org/onlinereport/decls.html#sect4.4.2 fixity] is left associative and most tightly binding (9). --[[User:JohannesAhlmann|Johannes Ahlmann]] 12:29, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
*** Right. So I can't name my function '~', but I can name it something that has '~' in it then. I also see from the spec document that apparently only data constructors can start with ':'. (I didn't know that... Well worth knowing!) [[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 15:52, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
**** no, '~' is a valid operator ('one or more of "...~..."'). and you can't mix special characters with non-special characters (letter, digits, single quote, underscore).<br />
<br />
* GHC ''can'' do all sorts of program optimisations. But, for a given program, how can you tell what it ''really'' did when it compiled? Did it inline that function? Was that operation optimised into an in-place update? Is there a way to tell? (Short of using a disassembler that is!) [[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 11:47, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
** you can look at [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/users_guide/separate-compilation.html#keeping-intermediates intermediate compiler outputs] with ghc flags. --[[User:JohannesAhlmann|Johannes Ahlmann]] 12:29, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
*** Right. So there's various bits of info you can get out of it. (All a bit low-level... but then, what would you expect?) [[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 15:52, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
<br />
* Is there a way to make a Haskell program utilise multiple CPUs? (I rephrase: clearly this ''is'' very possible theoretically. What I mean is does any known compiler provide a way to do this?) [[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 11:47, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
** * yes, ghc 6.6 supports multiple CPUs. see [[GHC/Concurrency#Multiprocessor_GHC]] --[[User:JohannesAhlmann|Johannes Ahlmann]] 12:29, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
*** Right... so I just need to compile my program with "-threaded" and run it with "+RTS -N2" or whatever? [[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 15:52, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />

* I want to write a program that renders bitmap graphics. Is there ''any'' way to get this onto the video screen in Haskell? Is there any way to get the data saved to disk in some sane file format? [[User:MathematicalOrchid|MathematicalOrchid]] 11:47, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />
** have a look at [[Libraries_and_tools/GUI_libraries]]. i'd have a look at [http://haskell.org/graphics/ HGL], [http://haskell.org/HOpenGL/ HOpenGL] and/or [http://haskell.org/gtk2hs/ gtk2hs]. of these, at least gtk2hs has some image handling routines. for pure image format libraries there's unfortunately a little less :(<br />
*** This is where it starts to get messy... I already tried using HGL from within Hugs. (Drawing 'pixels' that are really small squares.) However, once it's drawn enough pixels, I get a Dr Watson error and Hugs ungracefully terminates. (Actually, the latest version of Hugs seems to do this a lot.) So I went to compile it with GHC - and it seems GHC doesn't come with that library at all. And the page you linked says that HGL is 'currently broken on Win32'. Hmm... OK, I'm confused now. Then there's HOpenGL. (Is that the same thing as Graphics.Rendering.OpenGL, or is it seperate?) It's nice to know you can have hardware 3D acceleration if you want it, but maybe a tad overkill for just writing a bitmap to the display. Also, IIRC, doesn't OpenGL require you to open a window in a platform-specific way first? And then there's gtk2hs. I don't know if you can run Gtk on Win32... but that one looks like it might be worth investigating.

* Haskell apparently allows you to write functions with bizarre names like '++' or '***'. What are the rules for this? Which characters can or can't you use?

* GHC ''can'' do all sorts of program optimisations. But, for a given program, how can you tell what it ''really'' did when it compiled? Did it inline that function?

* Haskell apparently allows you to write functions with bizarre names like '++' or '***'. What are the rules for this? Which characters can or can't you use?

** please refer the [[Language_and_library_specification]] under [http://haskell.org/onlinereport/lexemes.html#ids "Identifiers and Operators"]. variable identifiers start with a lowercase letter, constructor Identifiers with an uppercase letter and both can contain underscores, single quotes, letters and digits; , operators are formed from one or more of <hask>"!#$%&*+./<=>?@\^|-~"</hask> (plus a special case involving <hask>(:)</hask>). lacking fixity declarations, the default [http://haskell.org/onlinereport/decls.html#sect4.4.2 fixity] is left associative and most tightly binding (9). --[[User:JohannesAhlmann|Johannes Ahlmann]] 12:29, 22 January 2007 (UTC)<br />

* GHC ''can'' do all sorts of program optimisations. But, for a given program, how can you tell what it ''really'' did when it compiled? Did it inline that function?

<br />
This collection is supposed to be comprised of short, useful, cool, magical examples, which should incite the reader's curiosity and (hopefully) lead him to a deeper understanding of advanced Haskell concepts. At a later time I might add explanations to the more obscure solutions. I've also started providing several alternatives to give more insight into the interrelations of solutions.<br />

More examples are always welcome, especially "obscure" monadic ones.<br />

=== Polynomials ===<br />
In abstract algebra you learn that polynomials can be used the same way integers are used given the right assumptions about their coefficients and roots. Specifically, polynomials support addition, subtraction, multiplication and sometimes division. It also turns out that one way to think of polynomials is that they are just lists of numbers (their coefficients). <br />
<br />
instance Num a => Num [a] where -- (1)<br />
<br />
(f:fs) + (g:gs) = f+g : fs+gs -- (2)<br />
fs + [] = fs -- (3a)<br />
[] + gs = gs -- (3b)<br />
<br />
(f:fs) * (g:gs) = f*g : [f]*gs + fs*(g:gs) -- (4)<br />
_ * _ = [] -- (5)<br />
<br />
====Explanation====<br />
(1) puts lists into type class Num, the class to which operators + and * belong, provided the list elements are in class Num.<br />
<br />
Lists are ordered by increasing powers. Thus <tt>f:fs</tt> means <tt>f+x*fs</tt> in algebraic notation. (2) and (4) follow from these algebraic identities:<br />
<br />
(f+x*fs) + (g+x*gs) = f+g + x*(fs+gs)<br />
(f+x*fs) * (g+x*gs) = f*g + x*(f*gs + fs*(g+x*gs))<br />
<br />
(3) and (5) handle list ends.<br />
<br />
The bracketed <tt>[f]</tt> in (4) avoids mixed arithmetic, which Haskell doesn't support.<br />
<br />
====Comments====<br />
<br />
The methods are qualitatively different from ordinary array-based methods; there is no vestige of subscripting or counting of terms.<br />
<br />
The methods are suitable for on-line computation. Only<br />
<i>n</i> terms of each input must be seen before the <i>n</i>-th term<br />
of output is produced.<br />
<br />
Thus the methods work on infinite series as well as polynomials.<br />
<br />
Integer power comes for free. This example tests the cubing of (1+x):<br />
<br />
[1, 1]^3 == [1, 3, 3, 1]<br />

<br />
== Call For Contribution ==<br />
This fun project, called ''The Other Prelude'', is a creative reconstruction of the standard Prelude. By disregarding history and compatibility, we get a clean sheet.<br />
<br />
== Committee ==<br />
This project has no committee whatsoever. Haskell community discussed the issues [[Talk:The Other Prelude|here]].<br />
<br />
== Naming Conventions ==<br />
* Function names should be easy for beginners to consume. <br />
* Specifically, ''The Other Prelude'' naming convention is to use <br />
** descriptive symbols for functions that are naturally infix (''e.g.'', <hask>mplus</hask> is replaced by <hask>(++)</hask>) <br />
** whole English words and camelCase for functions (''e.g.'', <hask>orElse</hask> but not <hask>fmap</hask>)<br />
<br />
== The Hierarchy ==<br />
Although, not Haskell 98, hierarchical modules will definitely be in Haskell'. We take it for granted.<br />
* <hask>TheOtherPrelude</hask> - Minimalistic module.<br />
* <hask>TheOtherPrelude.Utilities</hask> - Convenient definitions. The reasoning behind its existence is that we want the Prelude to be very concise. It should not steal good names.<br />
<br />
== Open Issues ==<br />
* Should Prelude functions use <hask>Integer</hask> instead of <hask>Int</hask>?<br />
* Should <hask>String</hask> be a class rather than a type synonym?<br />
<br />
== The Code ==<br />
Currently, the code is in Wiki form. If people do agree that the collaborative decisions begot something pretty, we'll have a group of files in darcs.haskell.org some time.<br />

<br />
I was a bit annoyed when I found out that Data.List.groupBy compared each new element to the first element of a group instead of the last added element.<br />
<br />
I guess the current way it is easier to implement, but severely hinders its usefulness:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
> groupBy (\a b -> a+1 == b) [1,2,3,4,6]<br />
[[1,2],[3,4],[6]]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
I propose a different implementation of groupBy which would result in the following:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
> groupBy (\a b -> a+1 == b) [1,2,3,4,6]<br />
[[1,2,3,4],[6]]<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
The following a naive implementation that was written for "workiness" instead of speed or space behavior:<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
groupBy' :: (a -> a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [[a]]<br />
groupBy' _ [] = []<br />
groupBy' f (x:xs) = gb f xs [[x]]<br />
where gb f (x:xs) ((a:as):bs) = gb f xs $ if f a x then ((x:a:as):bs)<br />
else ([x]:(a:as):bs)<br />
gb _ [] as = reverse . map reverse $ as <br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
I'm sure there are much nicer ways to implement this...</div>JohannesAhlmannhttps://wiki.haskell.org/Haskell_Quiz/DayRange/Solution_Jethr0Haskell Quiz/DayRange/Solution Jethr02007-01-10T17:41:24Z<p>JohannesAhlmann: using a modified version of groupBy</p>

<div>This is a ShootoutEntry for [http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/benchmark.php?test=revcomp&lang=all].<br />
<br />
about the reverse-complement benchmark<br />
<br />
Each program should<br />
<br />
* read line-by-line a redirected FASTA format file from stdin<br />
* for each sequence: write the id, description, and the reverse-complement sequence in FASTA format to stdout<br />
<br />
We use the FASTA file generated by the fasta benchmark as input for this benchmark. Note: the file may include both lowercase and uppercase codes.<br />
<br />
We use these code complements:<br />
<br />
code meaning complement<br />
A A T<br />
C C G<br />
G G C<br />
T/U T A<br />
M A or C K<br />
R A or G Y<br />

<hr />
<div>[[Category:Proposals]]<br />
<br />
== Call for contribution ==<br />
This fun project, called "The Other Prelude", and is a creative reconstruction of the standard Prelude. By disregarding history and compatibility, we get a clean sheet.<br />
<br />
== Naming conventions ==<br />
The principal is to make the names very readable for both beginners and category theorists (if any).<br />
<br />
== Guidelines ==<br />
* The prelude should not contain any "projection" functions (like <hask>fst</hask> and <hask>snd</hask>. They go to the Extension module.<br />
<br />
<br />
== Issues ==<br />
* Should alphanumeric names be preferred over symbols when defining a class?<br />
* Why do many functions in Prelude use <hask>Int</hask> instead of <hask>Integer</hask>? IMO, <hask>Integer</hask> should be THE preferred datatype for everything (examples: length, splitAt, replicate, drop, take, ...)!<br />
<br />
<br />
== The hierarchy ==<br />
* <hask>TheOtherPrelude</hask> - Minimalistic module.<br />
* <hask>TheOtherPrelude.Extension</hask> - Convenient definitions.<br />

== The code ==<br />
Currently, the code is in Wiki form. If people do agree that the collaborative decisions begot something pretty, we'll have a group of files in darcs.haskell.org some time.<br />
<br />
The imaginery Prelude as it stands,<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
import Prelude () -- hide everything<br />
<br />
-- the idea is to remove 'fmap' <br />
-- and map :: (a -> b) -> [a] -> [b] to be a special case<br />
-- as well as having (.) :: (a -> b) -> (e -> a) -> (e -> b) as a<br />
-- special case from the Functor instance for ((->) e)<br />
-- Both notations can be provided to allow for clarity in different situations.<br />
class Functor f where<br />
map :: (a -> b) -> f a -> f b<br />
(.) :: (a -> b) -> f a -> f b<br />
map = (.)<br />
(.) = map<br />
<br />
-- the following has been shamelessly copied <br />
-- from the functor hierarchy proposal wiki page<br />
class Functor f => Applicative f where<br />
return :: a -> f a<br />
(<*>) :: f (a -> b) -> f a -> f b -- or should this be named 'ap'? <br />
-- or something even better?<br />
-- could this nice looking function<br />
-- refactor the liftM* idioms?<br />
<br />
(>>) :: f a -> f b -> f b<br />
fa >> fb = (map (const id) fa) <*> fb<br />
<br />
-- this leaves little left for the actual Monad class<br />
class (Applicative m) => Monad m where<br />
(>>=) :: m a -> (a -> m b) -> m b<br />
join :: m (m a) -> m a<br />
<br />
x >>= f = join (map f x)<br />
join x = x >>= id<br />
<br />
-- end of Functor hierarchy dilemma<br />
<br />
-- zero will be used when pattern matching against refutable patterns in<br />
-- do-notation as well as to provide support for monad comprehensions.<br />
class (Monad m) => MonadZero m where<br />
zero :: m a<br />
<br />
class (MonadZero m) => MonadPlus m where<br />
(++) :: m a -> m a -> m a<br />
<br />
class (MonadZero m) => MonadOr m where<br />
orElse :: m a -> m a -> m a<br />
<br />
</haskell><br />
<br />
How to use it, as it stands,<br />
<br />
<haskell><br />
import Prelude () -- hide everything<br />
import TheOtherPrelude -- get everything<br />
import qualified TheOtherPrelude.Monad.Kleisli as M -- standard convention <br />
</haskell><br />
<br />

<div>Animal Quiz (#15)<br />
<br />
It works like this. The program starts by telling the user to think of an animal. It then begins asking a series of yes/no questions about that animal: does it swim, does it have hair, etc. Eventually, it will narrow down the possibilities to a single animal and guess that (Is it a mouse?).<br />
<br />
If the program has guessed correctly, the game is over and may be restarted with a new animal. If the program has guess incorrectly, it asks the user for the kind of animal they were thinking of and then asks for the user to provide a question that can distinguish between its incorrect guess and the correct answer. It then adds the new question and animal to its "database" and will guess that animal in the future (if appropriate).<br />
