The `MaybeT`

monad transformer adds the ability to fail to a monad.

A sequence of actions succeeds, producing a value, only if all the actions in the sequence are successful. If one fails, the rest of the sequence is skipped and the composite action fails.

For a variant allowing a range of error values, see Control.Monad.Trans.Error.

# The MaybeT monad transformer

The parameterizable maybe monad, obtained by composing an arbitrary
monad with the `Maybe`

monad.

Computations are actions that may produce a value or fail.

The `return`

function yields a successful computation, while `>>=`

sequences two subcomputations, failing on the first error.
