Module documentation for 0.3.0.0

This version can be pinned in stack with:exceptional-0.3.0.0@sha256:8d310cde1b8562f7a31c42951c42b5de154fe433a5dbfc6e14b0e7eae7094b82,3066

exceptional

This is a Haskell library that exists to house a type:

data Exceptional x
  = Failure String
  | Success x

It’s much like Maybe, except instead of Nothing, we have Failure String.

A comparison could also be made to Either String. I made this library because I was dissatisfied with the Monad instance for Either. In this type, fail = Failure. It’s rather simple.

Installing

cabal install exceptional

Or, add exceptional to the build-depends field in your .cabal file.
