Module documentation for 0.3
This package provides length-indexed (sized) lists, also known as vectors.
data Vec n a where VNil :: Vec 'Nat.Z a (:::) :: a -> Vec n a -> Vec ('Nat.S n) a
The functions are implemented in four flavours:
naive: with explicit recursion. It's simple, constraint-less, yet slow.
Fin n -> arepresentation, which fuses well, but makes some programs hard to write. And
data-family: which allows lazy pattern matching
inline: which exploits how GHC dictionary inlining works, unrolling recursion if the size of
Vecis known statically.
As best approach depends on the application,
vec doesn't do any magic
transformation. Benchmark your code.
This package uses fin, i.e. not
GHC.TypeLits, for indexes.
