## 1 MonadBase

It seems that the liftIO function from MonadIO can be generalized to access whatever the base of a transformer stack happens to be. So there is no need for a liftSTM, liftST, etc.

## 2 MonadLib

This is by Iavor S. Diatchki and can be found at http://www.cse.ogi.edu/~diatchki/monadLib/

It is a new version of the mtl package with transformers: ReaderT WriterT StateT ExceptT SearchT ContT

It also defines BaseM which is like MonadBase above.

## 3 MonadRandom

A simple monad transformer to allow computations in the transformed monad to generate random values.

View NewMonads/MonadRandom.

## 4 MonadSupply

Here is a simple monad/monad transformer for computations which consume values from a (finite or infinite) supply. Note that due to pattern matching, running out of supply in a non-MonadZero monad will cause an error.

## 5 MonadUndo

Here is a modified state monad transformer for keeping track of undo/redo states automatically.

View NewMonads/MonadUndo.

## 6 MonadUnique

This is a simple (trivial) monad transformer for supplying unique integer values to an algorithm.
