records: A flexible record system

[ bsd3, data, library, records ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides a flexible record system which has some novel features:

  • Using record type families, the type system can be used to describe relationships between field types.

  • Record scheme induction permits the implementation of polymorphic record combinators that work on whole records instead of only a fixed set of fields.

  • Subkind polymorphism for sorts makes it possible to impose varying restrictions on the structure of field types.

For detailed information, please refer to the paper Generic Record Combinators with Static Type Checking.


Note: This package has metadata revisions in the cabal description newer than included in the tarball. To unpack the package including the revisions, use 'cabal get'.
