## Abstract

Lub is an experiment in computing least upper information bounds on (partially defined) functional values.

It provides alub

unamb

lub

Besides this wiki page, here are more ways to find out about lub:

- Read the blog post
*Merging partial values* - Visit the Hackage page for library documentation and to download & install.
- Or install with
`cabal install lub`. - Get the code repository:
`darcs get http://code.haskell.org/lub`.

I got inspired for this package after stimulating discussions with Thomas Davie, Russell O'Connor and others in the #haskell gang.
