This library provides a function to generate a special f-algebra combinator from any data type (GADTs are not currently supported).
This was inspired by the recursion-schemes library where they have a function to automagically generate a base functor. Although, this new base functor data type has custom constructors and to define the *-morphism algebras turns into boring pattern matching.
So, this library provides a function called `makeCombinator`

that produces a
nice combinator to deal with data types as they were defined in terms of Pairs
( (,) ) and Sums (`Either`

). With this nice combinator we are able to view a
data type as its equivalent categorical isomorphism and manipulate it with an
interface similar as the `either`

function provided from `base`

.
