This package introduces the ifCxt function, which lets your write if statements that depend on a polymorphic variable's class instances. For example, we can make a version of show that can be called on any type:

cxtShow :: forall a. IfCxt (Show a) => a -> String
cxtShow a = ifCxt (Proxy::Proxy (Show a))
    (show a)
    "<<unshowable>>"

Running this function in ghci, we get:

cxtShow (1 :: Int)
"1"
cxtShow (id :: a -> a)
"<<unshowable>>"
