Latest on Hackage:

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

Reflect exceptions using phantom types. This library provides core API and others may build on top of it.

Usage Example

Example of reflecting reised exception in type:

{-# LANGUAGE DeriveDataTypeable #-}

import Control.Exception (Exception)

import Control.Monad.TaggedException (Throws)
import qualified Control.Monad.TaggedException as E (liftT, throw)
import Data.Typeable (Typeable)

data NotReady = NotReady String
    deriving (Show, Typeable)
        -- Both required by Exception class

instance Exception NotReady

myFunction :: Input -> Throws NotReady IO Output
myFunction input = do

    -- ... some stuff ...

    -- isReady :: Input -> IO Bool
    ready <- E.liftT $ isReady input
    unless ready
        . E.throw $ NotReady "Resource of myFunction is not ready."

    -- ... some other stuff ...

ChangeLog / ReleaseNotes


  • Deprecating module Control.Monad.TaggedException.Utilities, definitions from it were moved in to Control.Monad.TaggedException.Core. (change)
  • Type Throws has now instance for Generic1, but only on GHC >=7.10, due to PolyKinds. (new)
  • HiddenException instances for AllocationLimitExceeded and Void, both defined in base >=4.8. (new)
  • HiddenException instance for TypeError, defined in base >=4.9. (new)
  • Bumped upper bound of [transformers][] package to include 0.5.* branch. (change)


  • Relaxing upper bound on exceptions package to include versions up to 0.8.*. (new)
  • Not uploaded on to [Hackage][], instead opted to modify package metadata of release.


  • Builds on GHC from 7.4 to 7.10, later with base 4.8. (change)
  • Bumping [transformers][] bounds to include 0.4.* versions. (change)
  • Dropped last threads of support for base <= 4.5; it hadn't worked anyway since exceptions ==0.6 depend on base >=4.5 && <5. (breaking change)
  • Instances for [mtl][] >=2.1 package. Package exceptions already depends on [mtl][], so it doesn't make sense to shy away from them. (new)
  • Introduced unsafe functions (new):

    ```Haskell liftCCLike :: (((a -> m b) -> m' c) -> m'' d) -> ((a -> Throws e m b) -> Throws e m' c) -> Throws e m'' d

    liftEmbedLike :: (forall a. m a -> Throws e n a) -> Throws e' m b -> Throws e n b

    liftHoistLike :: (forall a. m a -> n a) -> Throws e m b -> Throws e' n b ```

  • Documentation updates. (new)
  • Uploaded to [Hackage][]: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/tagged-exception-core-
