1 The file

Download the code: media:AlexWrapper-monadUser

Note this is only a minor change to the current monad wrapper.

2 Usage

2.1 In the Alex source file

In Alex, wrappers are chosen by the %wrapper directive. To use the monadUser wrapper, add the line

    %wrapper "monadUser"

after the initial code block in your Alex source file.

Additionally, two items must be defined in a code block (or imported), the Haskell type
and the variable
which must be of type

2.2 Where to put the wrapper source file

Alex retrieves wrappers from its template directory, typically /usr/lib/alex2.x.x. If you have access to that directory, simply place the file in there.

If not, create a directory named alex in your home directory. Copy all of the files from /usr/lib/alex2.x.x to alex. Then place the downloaded file in that directory.

Then, when running Alex, use the command:

   alex -t ~/alex input.x

which will tell alex to use the new directory for its templates.
