This package provides functionality for generalising the deriving mechanism in Haskell to arbitrary classes. It was first described in the paper:

  • A generic deriving mechanism for Haskell. Jose Pedro Magalhaes, Atze Dijkstra, Johan Jeuring, and Andres Loeh. Haskell'10.

The current implementation integrates with the new GHC Generics. See http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/GHC.Generics for more information. Template Haskell code is provided for supporting GHC before version 7.2.
