Cofunctor is a structure from category theory dual to
We all know that a
Functor is defined by the operation ‘fmap’:
fmap :: (a -> b) -> (f a -> f b)
This means that its dual must be defined by the following operation:
cofmap :: (b -> a) -> (f b -> f a)
Since beginning his investigations, the author of this package has discovered
that this pattern is at least as commonly used as
Functor. In fact, many
ubiquitous Haskell types (e.g.
((->) a) turn out to have a
