Description

The MaybeT monad transformer adds the ability to fail to a monad.

A sequence of actions succeeds, producing a value, only if all the actions in the sequence are successful. If one fails, the rest of the sequence is skipped and the composite action fails.

For a variant allowing a range of error values, see Control.Monad.Trans.Error.

Synopsis

The MaybeT monad transformer

newtype MaybeT m a Source

The parameterizable maybe monad, obtained by composing an arbitrary monad with the Maybe monad.

Computations are actions that may produce a value or fail.

The return function yields a successful computation, while >>= sequences two subcomputations, failing on the first error.

Instances

mapMaybeT :: (m (Maybe a) -> n (Maybe b)) -> MaybeT m a -> MaybeT n bSource

liftListen :: Monad m => (m (Maybe a) -> m (Maybe a, w)) -> MaybeT m a -> MaybeT m (a, w)Source

Lift a listen operation to the new monad.

liftPass :: Monad m => (m (Maybe a, w -> w) -> m (Maybe a)) -> MaybeT m (a, w -> w) -> MaybeT m aSource
