Scope

base-orphans defines orphan instances that mimic instances available in later versions of base to a wider (older) range of compilers. base-orphans does not export anything except the orphan instances themselves and complements base-compat.

Note that base-orphans doesn’t cover every possible instance. See the What is not covered section for exceptions.

Usage

To use base-orphans, simply import Data.Orphans ().

What is covered

  • Alternative, MonadPlus, and MonadZip instances for Proxy

We also make an attempt to keep base-orphans building with GHC HEAD, but due to its volatility, it may not work at any given point in time. If it doesn’t, please report it!

Patches are welcome; add tests for new code!
