A type f
is a Functor if it provides a function fmap
which, given any types a
and b
,
lets you apply any function of type (a -> b)
to turn an f a
into an f b
, preserving the
structure of f
.
Examples
>>>
fmap show (Just 1) -- (a -> b) -> f a -> f b
Just "1" -- (Int -> String) -> Maybe Int -> Maybe String
>>>
fmap show Nothing -- (a -> b) -> f a -> f b
Nothing -- (Int -> String) -> Maybe Int -> Maybe String
>>>
fmap show [1,2,3] -- (a -> b) -> f a -> f b
["1", "2", "3"] -- (Int -> String) -> [Int] -> [String]
>>>
fmap show [] -- (a -> b) -> f a -> f b
[] -- (Int -> String) -> [Int] -> [String]
The fmap
function is also available as the infix operator <$>
:
>>>
fmap show (Just 1) -- (Int -> String) -> Maybe Int -> Maybe String
Just "1">>>
show <$> (Just 1) -- (Int -> String) -> Maybe Int -> Maybe String
Just "1"

class Functor f where Source #
A type f
is a Functor if it provides a function fmap
which, given any types a
and b
lets you apply any function from (a -> b)
to turn an f a
into an f b
, preserving the
structure of f
. Furthermore f
needs to adhere to the following:
Note, that the second law follows from the free theorem of the type fmap
and
the first law, so you need only check that the former condition holds.

(<$>) :: Functor f => (a -> b) -> f a -> f b infixl 4 Source #
An infix synonym for fmap
.
The name of this operator is an allusion to $
.
Note the similarities between their types:
($) :: (a -> b) -> a -> b (<$>) :: Functor f => (a -> b) -> f a -> f b
Whereas $
is function application, <$>
is function
application lifted over a Functor
.
Examples

[2,4,6]
Apply even
to the second element of a pair:
>>>
even <$> (2,2)

void :: Functor f => f a -> f () Source #
discards or ignores the result of evaluation, such
as the return value of an void

action.
