Main data types representing Types
Types are one of:
 Unboxed
 Iff its representation is other than a pointer Unboxed types are also unlifted.
 Lifted
 Iff it has bottom as an element. Closures always have lifted types: i.e. any letbound identifier in Core must have a lifted type. Operationally, a lifted object is one that can be entered. Only lifted types may be unified with a type variable.
 Algebraic
 Iff it is a type with one or more constructors, whether
declared with
data
ornewtype
. An algebraic type is one that can be deconstructed with a case expression. This is not the same as lifted types, because we also include unboxed tuples in this classification.  Data
 Iff it is a type declared with
data
, or a boxed tuple.  Primitive
 Iff it is a builtin type that can't be expressed in Haskell.
Currently, all primitive types are unlifted, but that's not necessarily
the case: for example, Int
could be primitive.
Some primitive types are unboxed, such as Int#
, whereas some are boxed
but unlifted (such as ByteArray#
). The only primitive types that we
classify as algebraic are the unboxed tuples.
Some examples of type classifications that may make this a bit clearer are:
Type primitive boxed lifted algebraic  Int# Yes No No No ByteArray# Yes Yes No No (# a, b #) Yes No No Yes ( a, b ) No Yes Yes Yes [a] No Yes Yes Yes
A source type is a type that is a separate type as far as the type checker is concerned, but which has a more lowlevel representation as far as CoretoCore passes and the rest of the back end is concerned.
You don't normally have to worry about this, as the utility functions in this module will automatically convert a source into a representation type if they are spotted, to the best of it's abilities. If you don't want this to happen, use the equivalent functions from the TcType module.
data VisibilityFlag Source #
type KindOrType = Type Source #
A type of the form p
of kind Constraint
represents a value whose type is
the Haskell predicate p
, where a predicate is what occurs before
the =>
in a Haskell type.
We use PredType
as documentation to mark those types that we guarantee to have
this kind.
It can be expanded into its representation, but:
 The type checker must treat it as opaque
 The rest of the compiler treats it as transparent
Consider these examples:
f :: (Eq a) => a > Int g :: (?x :: Int > Int) => a > Int h :: (r\l) => {r} => {l::Int  r}
Here the Eq a
and ?x :: Int > Int
and rl
are all called "predicates"
A TyBinder
represents an argument to a function. TyBinders can be dependent
(Named
) or nondependent (Anon
). They may also be visible or not.

Constructing and deconstructing types
mkTyVarTys :: [TyVar] > [Type] Source #
getTyVar :: String > Type > TyVar Source #
Attempts to obtain the type variable underlying a Type
, and panics with the
given message if this is not a type variable type. See also getTyVar_maybe
getTyVar_maybe :: Type > Maybe TyVar Source #
Attempts to obtain the type variable underlying a Type
repGetTyVar_maybe :: Type > Maybe TyVar Source #
Attempts to obtain the type variable underlying a Type
, without
any expansion
getCastedTyVar_maybe :: Type > Maybe (TyVar, Coercion) Source #
If the type is a tyvar, possibly under a cast, returns it, along with the coercion. Thus, the co is :: kind tv ~R kind type
splitAppTy :: Type > (Type, Type) Source #
Attempts to take a type application apart, as in splitAppTy_maybe
,
and panics if this is not possible
splitAppTys :: Type > (Type, [Type]) Source #
Recursively splits a type as far as is possible, leaving a residual type being applied to and the type arguments applied to it. Never fails, even if that means returning an empty list of type applications.
repSplitAppTys :: Type > (Type, [Type]) Source #
Like splitAppTys
, but doesn't look through type synonyms
splitAppTy_maybe :: Type > Maybe (Type, Type) Source #
Attempt to take a type application apart, whether it is a function, type constructor, or plain type application. Note that type family applications are NEVER unsaturated by this!
repSplitAppTy_maybe :: Type > Maybe (Type, Type) Source #
Does the AppTy split as in splitAppTy_maybe
, but assumes that
any Core view stuff is already done
tcRepSplitAppTy_maybe :: Type > Maybe (Type, Type) Source #
Does the AppTy split as in tcSplitAppTy_maybe
, but assumes that
any coreView stuff is already done. Refuses to look through (c => t)
splitFunTy :: Type > (Type, Type) Source #
Attempts to extract the argument and result types from a type, and
panics if that is not possible. See also splitFunTy_maybe
splitFunTy_maybe :: Type > Maybe (Type, Type) Source #
Attempts to extract the argument and result types from a type
splitFunTysN :: Int > Type > ([Type], Type) Source #
Split off exactly the given number argument types, and panics if that is not possible
funResultTy :: Type > Type Source #
Extract the function result type and panic if that is not possible
funArgTy :: Type > Type Source #
Extract the function argument type and panic if that is not possible
mkTyConApp :: TyCon > [Type] > Type Source #
A key function: builds a TyConApp
or FunTy
as appropriate to
its arguments. Applies its arguments to the constructor from left to right.
mkTyConTy :: TyCon > Type Source #
Create the plain type constructor type which has been applied to no type arguments at all.
tyConAppTyConPicky_maybe :: Type > Maybe TyCon Source #
Retrieve the tycon heading this type, if there is one. Does not look through synonyms.
tyConAppTyCon :: Type > TyCon Source #
tyConAppArgs :: Type > [Type] Source #
splitTyConApp_maybe :: Type > Maybe (TyCon, [Type]) Source #
Attempts to tease a type apart into a type constructor and the application of a number of arguments to that constructor
splitTyConApp :: Type > (TyCon, [Type]) Source #
Attempts to tease a type apart into a type constructor and the application
of a number of arguments to that constructor. Panics if that is not possible.
See also splitTyConApp_maybe
nextRole :: Type > Role Source #
What is the role assigned to the next parameter of this type? Usually,
this will be Nominal
, but if the type is a TyConApp
, we may be able to
do better. The type does *not* have to be wellkinded when applied for this
to work!
splitListTyConApp_maybe :: Type > Maybe Type Source #
Attempts to tease a list type apart and gives the type of the elements if successful (looks through type synonyms)
repSplitTyConApp_maybe :: Type > Maybe (TyCon, [Type]) Source #
Like splitTyConApp_maybe
, but doesn't look through synonyms. This
assumes the synonyms have already been dealt with.
mkForAllTys :: [TyBinder] > Type > Type Source #
Wraps foralls over the type using the provided TyVar
s from left to right
mkInvForAllTys :: [TyVar] > Type > Type Source #
Like mkForAllTys, but assumes all variables are dependent and invisible, a common case
mkSpecForAllTys :: [TyVar] > Type > Type Source #
Like mkForAllTys, but assumes all variables are dependent and specified, a common case
mkVisForAllTys :: [TyVar] > Type > Type Source #
Like mkForAllTys, but assumes all variables are dependent and visible
mkNamedForAllTy :: TyVar > VisibilityFlag > Type > Type Source #
Make a dependent forall.
splitForAllTy_maybe :: Type > Maybe (TyVar, Type) Source #
Attempts to take a forall type apart, but only if it's a proper forall, with a named binder
splitForAllTys :: Type > ([TyVar], Type) Source #
Take a ForAllTy apart, returning the list of tyvars and the result type. This always succeeds, even if it returns only an empty list. Note that the result type returned may have free variables that were bound by a forall.
splitForAllTy :: Type > (TyVar, Type) Source #
Take a forall type apart, or panics if that is not possible.
splitPiTy_maybe :: Type > Maybe (TyBinder, Type) Source #
Attempts to take a forall type apart; works with proper foralls and functions
splitPiTys :: Type > ([TyBinder], Type) Source #
Split off all TyBinders to a type, splitting both proper foralls and functions
splitNamedPiTys :: Type > ([TyBinder], Type) Source #
Like splitPiTys
but split off only named binders.
mkPiType :: Var > Type > Type Source #
Makes a (>)
type or an implicit forall type, depending
on whether it is given a type variable or a term variable.
This is used, for example, when producing the type of a lambda.
Always uses Invisible binders.
mkTyBindersPreferAnon :: [TyVar] > Type > [TyBinder] Source #
Given a list of typelevel vars and a result type, makes TyBinders, preferring anonymous binders if the variable is, in fact, not dependent. All binders are visible.
piResultTy :: Type > Type > Type Source #
Just like piResultTys
but for a single argument
Try not to iterate piResultTy
, because it's inefficient to substitute
one variable at a time; instead use 'piResultTys"
piResultTys :: Type > [Type] > Type Source #
(piResultTys f_ty [ty1, .., tyn]) gives the type of (f ty1 .. tyn)
where f :: f_ty
piResultTys
is interesting because:
1. f_ty
may have more foralls than there are args
2. Less obviously, it may have fewer foralls
For case 2. think of:
piResultTys (forall a.a) [forall b.b, Int]
This really can happen, but only (I think) in situations involving
undefined. For example:
undefined :: forall a. a
Term: undefined (forall b. b>b)
Int
This term should have type (Int > Int), but notice that
there are more type args than foralls in undefined
s type.
dropForAlls :: Type > Type Source #
Drops all nonanonymous ForAllTys
mkNumLitTy :: Integer > Type Source #
isNumLitTy :: Type > Maybe Integer Source #
Is this a numeric literal. We also look through type synonyms.
mkStrLitTy :: FastString > Type Source #
isStrLitTy :: Type > Maybe FastString Source #
Is this a symbol literal. We also look through type synonyms.
mkCastTy :: Type > Coercion > Type Source #
Make a CastTy
. The Coercion must be nominal. This function looks
at the entire structure of the type and coercion in an attempt to
maintain representation invariance (that is, any two types that are eqType
look the same). Be very wary of calling this in a loop.
mkCoercionTy :: Coercion > Type Source #
userTypeError_maybe :: Type > Maybe Type Source #
Is this type a custom user error? If so, give us the kind and the error message.
pprUserTypeErrorTy :: Type > SDoc Source #
Render a type corresponding to a user type error into a SDoc.
coAxNthLHS :: CoAxiom br > Int > Type Source #
Get the type on the LHS of a coercion induced by a type/data family instance.
stripCoercionTy :: Type > Coercion Source #
splitCoercionType_maybe :: Type > Maybe (Type, Type) Source #
Try to split up a coercion type into the types that it coerces
filterOutInvisibleTypes :: TyCon > [Type] > [Type] Source #
Given a tycon and its arguments, filters out any invisible arguments
filterOutInvisibleTyVars :: TyCon > [TyVar] > [TyVar] Source #
Like filterOutInvisibles
, but works on TyVar
s
partitionInvisibles :: TyCon > (a > Type) > [a] > ([a], [a]) Source #
Given a tycon and a list of things (which correspond to arguments), partitions the things into the invisible ones and the visible ones. The callback function is necessary for this scenario:
T :: forall k. k > k partitionInvisibles T [forall m. m > m > m, S, R, Q]
After substituting, we get
T (forall m. m > m > m) :: (forall m. m > m > m) > forall n. n > n > n
Thus, the first argument is invisible, S
is visible, R
is invisible again,
and Q
is visible.
If you're absolutely sure that your tycon's kind doesn't end in a variable, it's OK if the callback function panics, as that's the only time it's consulted.
synTyConResKind :: TyCon > Kind Source #
data TyCoMapper env m Source #
This describes how a "map" operation over a type/coercion should behave
TyCoMapper  

mapType :: (Applicative m, Monad m) => TyCoMapper env m > env > Type > m Type Source #
mapCoercion :: (Applicative m, Monad m) => TyCoMapper env m > env > Coercion > m Coercion Source #
newTyConInstRhs :: TyCon > [Type] > Type Source #
Unwrap one layer
of newtype on a type constructor and its
arguments, using an etareduced version of the newtype
if possible.
This requires tys to have at least newTyConInstArity tycon
elements.
mkFamilyTyConApp :: TyCon > [Type] > Type Source #
Given a family instance TyCon and its arg types, return the corresponding family type. E.g:
data family T a data instance T (Maybe b) = MkT b
Where the instance tycon is :RTL, so:
mkFamilyTyConApp :RTL Int = T (Maybe Int)
isDictLikeTy :: Type > Bool Source #
mkPrimEqPred :: Type > Type > Type Source #
Creates a primitive type equality predicate. Invariant: the types are not Coercions
mkPrimEqPredRole :: Role > Type > Type > PredType Source #
Makes a lifted equality predicate at the given role
equalityTyCon :: Role > TyCon Source #
mkHeteroPrimEqPred :: Kind > Kind > Type > Type > Type Source #
Creates a primite type equality predicate with explicit kinds
mkHeteroReprPrimEqPred :: Kind > Kind > Type > Type > Type Source #
Creates a primitive representational type equality predicate with explicit kinds
isClassPred :: PredType > Bool Source #
isNomEqPred :: PredType > Bool Source #
isIPPred_maybe :: Type > Maybe (FastString, Type) Source #
isCTupleClass :: Class > Bool Source #
classifyPredType :: PredType > PredTree Source #
getEqPredRole :: PredType > Role Source #
predTypeEqRel :: PredType > EqRel Source #
Get the equality relation relevant for a pred type.
Binders
sameVis :: VisibilityFlag > VisibilityFlag > Bool Source #
mkNamedBinder :: VisibilityFlag > Var > TyBinder Source #
Make a named binder
mkNamedBinders :: VisibilityFlag > [TyVar] > [TyBinder] Source #
Make many named binders
mkAnonBinder :: Type > TyBinder Source #
Make an anonymous binder

Common type constructors
Predicates on types
allDistinctTyVars :: [KindOrType] > Bool Source #

isForAllTy :: Type > Bool Source #
Checks whether this is a proper forall (with a named binder)
isUnboxedTupleType :: Type > Bool Source #
isAlgType :: Type > Bool Source #
See Type for what an algebraic type is. Should only be applied to types, as opposed to e.g. partially saturated type constructors
isClosedAlgType :: Type > Bool Source #
See Type for what an algebraic type is. Should only be applied to types, as opposed to e.g. partially saturated type constructors. Closed type constructors are those with a fixed right hand side, as opposed to e.g. associated types
isPrimitiveType :: Type > Bool Source #
Returns true of types that are opaque to Haskell.
isStrictType :: Type > Bool Source #
Computes whether an argument (or let right hand side) should
be computed strictly or lazily, based only on its type.
Currently, it's just isUnliftedType
.
isRuntimeRepTy :: Type > Bool Source #
Is this the type RuntimeRep
?
isRuntimeRepVar :: TyVar > Bool Source #
Is a tyvar of type RuntimeRep
?
isRuntimeRepKindedTy :: Type > Bool Source #
Is this a type of kind RuntimeRep? (e.g. PtrRep)
dropRuntimeRepArgs :: [Type] > [Type] Source #
Extract the RuntimeRep classifier of a type. Panics if this is not possible.
getRuntimeRepFromKind Source #

Main data types representing Kinds
Finding the kind of a type
Common Kind
Type free variables
tyCoVarsOfType :: Type > TyCoVarSet Source #
Returns free variables of a type, including kind variables as a nondeterministic set. For type synonyms it does not expand the synonym.
tyCoVarsOfTypes :: [Type] > TyCoVarSet Source #
Returns free variables of types, including kind variables as a nondeterministic set. For type synonyms it does not expand the synonym.
tyCoVarsOfTypeAcc :: Type > FV Source #
The worker for tyVarsOfType
and tyVarsOfTypeList
.
The previous implementation used unionVarSet
which is O(n+m) and can
make the function quadratic.
It's exported, so that it can be composed with
other functions that compute free variables.
See Note [FV naming conventions] in FV.
Etaexpanded because that makes it run faster (apparently)
tyCoVarsOfTypeDSet :: Type > DTyCoVarSet Source #
tyVarsOfType
that returns free variables of a type in a deterministic
set. For explanation of why using VarSet
is not deterministic see
Note [Deterministic FV] in FV.
coVarsOfType :: Type > CoVarSet Source #
coVarsOfTypes :: [Type] > TyCoVarSet Source #
closeOverKinds :: TyVarSet > TyVarSet Source #
Add the kind variables free in the kinds of the tyvars in the given set. Returns a nondeterministic set.
splitDepVarsOfType :: Type > Pair TyCoVarSet Source #
Retrieve the free variables in this type, splitting them based on whether the variable was used in a dependent context. (This isn't the most precise analysis, because it's used in the typechecking knot. It might list some dependent variables as also nondependent.)
splitDepVarsOfTypes :: [Type] > Pair TyCoVarSet Source #
Like splitDepVarsOfType
, but over a list of types
splitVisVarsOfType :: Type > Pair TyCoVarSet Source #
Retrieve the free variables in this type, splitting them based on whether they are used visibly or invisibly. Invisible ones come first.
splitVisVarsOfTypes :: [Type] > Pair TyCoVarSet Source #
expandTypeSynonyms :: Type > Type Source #
Expand out all type synonyms. Actually, it'd suffice to expand out just the ones that discard type variables (e.g. type Funny a = Int) But we don't know which those are currently, so we just expand all.
expandTypeSynonyms
only expands out type synonyms mentioned in the type,
not in the kinds of any TyCon or TyVar mentioned in the type.
Wellscoped lists of variables
varSetElemsWellScoped :: VarSet > [Var] Source #
Extract a wellscoped list of variables from a set of variables.
toposortTyVars :: [TyVar] > [TyVar] Source #
Do a topological sort on a list of tyvars. This is a deterministic sorting operation (that is, doesn't depend on Uniques).
tyCoVarsOfTypeWellScoped :: Type > [TyVar] Source #
Get the free vars of a type in scoped order
tyCoVarsOfTypesWellScoped :: [Type] > [TyVar] Source #
Get the free vars of types in scoped order
Type comparison
eqType :: Type > Type > Bool Source #
Type equality on source types. Does not look through newtypes
or
PredType
s, but it does look through type synonyms.
This first checks that the kinds of the types are equal and then
checks whether the types are equal, ignoring casts and coercions.
(The kind check is a recursive call, but since all kinds have type
Type
, there is no need to check the types of kinds.)
See also Note [Nontrivial definitional equality] in TyCoRep.
eqTypeX :: RnEnv2 > Type > Type > Bool Source #
Compare types with respect to a (presumably) nonempty RnEnv2
.
eqTypes :: [Type] > [Type] > Bool Source #
Type equality on lists of types, looking through type synonyms but not newtypes.
cmpTc :: TyCon > TyCon > Ordering Source #
Compare two TyCon
s. NB: This should never see the "star synonyms",
as recognized by Kind.isStarKindSynonymTyCon. See Note
[Kind Constraint and kind *] in Kind.
Forcing evaluation of types
Other views onto Types
coreView :: Type > Maybe Type Source #
This function Strips off the top layer only of a type synonym application (if any) its underlying representation type. Returns Nothing if there is nothing to look through.
By being nonrecursive and inlined, this case analysis gets efficiently joined onto the case analysis that the caller is already doing
coreViewOneStarKind :: Type > Maybe Type Source #
Like coreView
, but it also "expands" Constraint
to become
TYPE PtrRepLifted
.
flattenRepType :: RepType > [UnaryType] Source #
repType :: Type > RepType Source #
Looks through:
 Foralls
 Synonyms
 Predicates
 All newtypes, including recursive ones, but not newtype families
 Casts
It's useful in the back end of the compiler.
tyConsOfType :: Type > NameEnv TyCon Source #
All type constructors occurring in the type; looking through type synonyms, but not newtypes. When it finds a Class, it returns the class TyCon.
Type representation for the code generator
typePrimRep :: UnaryType > PrimRep Source #
Discovers the primitive representation of a more abstract UnaryType
kindPrimRep :: Kind > PrimRep Source #
Take a kind (of shape TYPE rr
) and produce the PrimRep
of values
of types of this kind.
tyConPrimRep :: TyCon > PrimRep Source #
Find the primitive representation of a TyCon
. Defined here to
avoid module loops. Call this only on unlifted tycons.
Main type substitution data types
Type & coercion substitution
The following invariants must hold of a TCvSubst
:
 The inscope set is needed only to guide the generation of fresh uniques
 In particular, the kind of the type variables in the inscope set is not relevant
 The substitution is only applied ONCE! This is because in general such application will not reach a fixed point.
