Description

Lazy writer monads.

Inspired by the paper Functional Programming with Overloading and Higher-Order Polymorphism, Mark P Jones (http://web.cecs.pdx.edu/~mpj/pubs/springschool.html) Advanced School of Functional Programming, 1995.

Synopsis

MonadWriter class

class (Monoid w, Monad m) => MonadWriter w m | m -> w whereSource

Methods

writer :: (a, w) -> m aSource

writer (a,w) embeds a simple writer action.

tell :: w -> m ()Source

tell w is an action that produces the output w.

listen :: m a -> m (a, w)Source

listen m is an action that executes the action m and adds its output to the value of the computation.

pass :: m (a, w -> w) -> m aSource

pass m is an action that executes the action m, which returns a value and a function, and returns the value, applying the function to the output.

Instances

MonadWriter w m => MonadWriter w (MaybeT m) 
MonadWriter w m => MonadWriter w (IdentityT m) 
MonadWriter w m => MonadWriter w (StateT s m) 
MonadWriter w m => MonadWriter w (StateT s m) 
MonadWriter w m => MonadWriter w (ReaderT r m) 
(Error e, MonadWriter w m) => MonadWriter w (ErrorT e m) 
(Monoid w, Monad m) => MonadWriter w (WriterT w m) 
(Monoid w, Monad m) => MonadWriter w (WriterT w m) 
(Monoid w, Monad m) => MonadWriter w (RWST r w s m) 
(Monoid w, Monad m) => MonadWriter w (RWST r w s m) 

listens :: MonadWriter w m => (w -> b) -> m a -> m (a, b)Source

listens f m is an action that executes the action m and adds the result of applying f to the output to the value of the computation.

censor :: MonadWriter w m => (w -> w) -> m a -> m aSource

censor f m is an action that executes the action m and applies the function f to its output, leaving the return value unchanged.

The Writer monad

type Writer w = WriterT w Identity

A writer monad parameterized by the type w of output to accumulate.

The return function produces the output mempty, while >>= combines the outputs of the subcomputations using mappend.

runWriter :: Writer w a -> (a, w)

Unwrap a writer computation as a (result, output) pair. (The inverse of writer.)

execWriter :: Writer w a -> w

Extract the output from a writer computation.

mapWriter :: ((a, w) -> (b, w')) -> Writer w a -> Writer w' b

Map both the return value and output of a computation using the given function.

The WriterT monad transformer

newtype WriterT w m a

A writer monad parameterized by:

  • w - the output to accumulate.
  • m - The inner monad.

The return function produces the output mempty, while >>= combines the outputs of the subcomputations using mappend.
