Main TyCon data types
TyCons represent type constructors. Type constructors are introduced by things such as:
1) Data declarations: data Foo = ...
creates the Foo
type constructor of
kind *
2) Type synonyms: type Foo = ...
creates the Foo
type constructor
3) Newtypes: newtype Foo a = MkFoo ...
creates the Foo
type constructor
of kind * > *
4) Class declarations: class Foo where
creates the Foo
type constructor
of kind *
This data type also encodes a number of primitive, built in type constructors such as those for function and tuple types.

that visibility in this sense does not correspond to visibility in
the context of any particular user program!

Some promoted datacons signify extra info relevant to GHC. For example,
the IntRep
constructor of RuntimeRep
corresponds to the IntRep
constructor of PrimRep
. This data structure allows us to store this
information right in the TyCon

up things like RuntimeRep
's PrimRep

This is the making of an algebraic TyCon
. Notably, you have to
pass in the generic (in the XGenerics sense) information about the
type constructor  you can get hold of it easily (see Generics

Makes a tycon suitable for use during typechecking. The only real need for this is for printing error messages during a recursive type/class typechecking knot. It has a kind because TcErrors sometimes calls typeKind. See also Note [Kind checking recursive type and class declarations] in TcTyClsDecls.
Predicates on TyCons
isAlgTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Returns True
if the supplied TyCon
resulted from either a
data
or newtype
declaration
isVanillaAlgTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Returns True
for vanilla AlgTyCons  that is, those created
with a data
or newtype
declaration.
isFunTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
isPrimTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Does this TyCon
represent something that cannot be defined in Haskell?
isTupleTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Does this TyCon
represent a tuple?
NB: when compiling Data.Tuple
, the tycons won't reply True
to
isTupleTyCon
, because they are built as AlgTyCons
. However they
get spat into the interface file as tuple tycons, so I don't think
it matters.
isTypeSynonymTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Is this a TyCon
representing a regular H98 type synonym (type
)?
mightBeUnsaturatedTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
True iff we can decompose (T a b c) into ((T a b) c) I.e. is it injective and generative w.r.t nominal equality? That is, if (T a b) ~N d e f, is it always the case that (T ~N d), (a ~N e) and (b ~N f)? Specifically NOT true of synonyms (open and otherwise)
It'd be unusual to call mightBeUnsaturatedTyCon on a regular H98 type synonym, because you should probably have expanded it first But regardless, it's not decomposable
isPromotedDataCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Is this a PromotedDataCon?
isPromotedDataCon_maybe :: TyCon > Maybe DataCon Source #
Retrieves the promoted DataCon if this is a PromotedDataCon;
isKindTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Is this tycon really meant for use at the kind level? That is, should it be permitted without XDataKinds?
isLiftedTypeKindTyConName :: Name > Bool Source #
isTauTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
isFamFreeTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
isDataTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Returns True
for data types that are definitely represented by
heapallocated constructors. These are scrutinised by Corelevel
case
expressions, and they get info tables allocated for them.
Generally, the function will be true for all data
types and false
for newtype
s, unboxed tuples, unboxed sums and type family
TyCon
s. But it is not guaranteed to return True
in all cases
that it could.
NB: for a data type family, only the instance TyCon
s
get an info table. The family declaration TyCon
does not
isProductTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
isEnumerationTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Is this an algebraic TyCon
which is just an enumeration of values?
isAbstractTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Test if the TyCon
is algebraic but abstract (invisible data constructors)
isFamilyTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Is this a TyCon
, synonym or otherwise, that defines a family?
isOpenFamilyTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Is this a TyCon
, synonym or otherwise, that defines a family with
instances?
isTypeFamilyTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Is this a synonym TyCon
that can have may have further instances appear?
isDataFamilyTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Is this a synonym TyCon
that can have may have further instances appear?
isOpenTypeFamilyTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Is this an open type family TyCon?
isClosedSynFamilyTyConWithAxiom_maybe :: TyCon > Maybe (CoAxiom Branched) Source #
Is this a nonempty closed type family? Returns Nothing
for
abstract or empty closed families.
tyConInjectivityInfo :: TyCon > Injectivity Source #
returns tyConInjectivityInfo
tc
is Injective
istc
is an
injective tycon (where is
states for which tyConBinders
tc
is
injective), or NotInjective
otherwise.
isUnliftedTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
isGadtSyntaxTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Is this an algebraic TyCon
declared with the GADT syntax?
isInjectiveTyCon :: TyCon > Role > Bool Source #
isInjectiveTyCon
is true of TyCon
s for which this property holds
(where X is the role passed in):
If (T a1 b1 c1) ~X (T a2 b2 c2), then (a1 ~X1 a2), (b1 ~X2 b2), and (c1 ~X3 c2)
(where X1, X2, and X3, are the roles given by tyConRolesX tc X)
See also Note [Decomposing equality] in TcCanonical
isGenerativeTyCon :: TyCon > Role > Bool Source #
isGenerativeTyCon
is true of TyCon
s for which this property holds
(where X is the role passed in):
If (T tys ~X t), then (t's head ~X T).
See also Note [Decomposing equality] in TcCanonical
isGenInjAlgRhs :: AlgTyConRhs > Bool Source #
Is this an AlgTyConRhs
of a TyCon
that is generative and injective
with respect to representational equality?
isTyConAssoc :: TyCon > Bool Source #
isImplicitTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Identifies implicit tycons that, in particular, do not go into interface files (because they are implicitly reconstructed when the interface is read).
Note that:
 Associated families are implicit, as they are reconstructed from the class declaration in which they reside, and
 Family instances are not implicit as they represent the instance body
(similar to a
dfun
does that for a class instance).  Tuples are implicit iff they have a wiredin name (namely: boxed and unboxed tupeles are wiredin and implicit, but constraint tuples are not)
isTyConWithSrcDataCons :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Check if the tycon actually refers to a proper `data` or `newtype` with user defined constructors rather than one from a class or other construction.
isTcTyCon :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Is this a TcTyCon? (That is, one only used during typechecking?)
isTcLevPoly :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Could this TyCon ever be levitypolymorphic when fully applied? True is safe. False means we're sure. Does only a quick check based on the TyCon's category. Precondition: The fullyapplied TyCon has kind (TYPE blah)
Extracting information out of TyCons
tyConSkolem :: TyCon > Bool Source #
Returns whether or not this TyCon
is definite, or a hole
that may be filled in at some later point. See Note [Skolem abstract data]

If the given TyCon
has a single data constructor, i.e. it is a data
type with one alternative, a tuple type or a newtype
then that constructor
is returned. If the TyCon
has more than one constructor, or represents a
primitive or function type constructor then Nothing
is returned. In any
other case, the function panics

tyConFamilySize :: TyCon > Int Source #

Primitive representations of Types
A PrimRep
is an abstraction of a type. It contains information that
the code generator needs in order to pass arguments, return results,
and store values of this type.
VoidRep  
LiftedRep  
UnliftedRep  Unlifted pointer 
IntRep  Signed, wordsized value 
WordRep  Unsigned, wordsized value 
Int64Rep  Signed, 64 bit value (with 32bit words only) 
Word64Rep  Unsigned, 64 bit value (with 32bit words only) 
AddrRep  A pointer, but not to a Haskell value (use '(Un)liftedRep') 
FloatRep  
DoubleRep  
VecRep Int PrimElemRep  A vector

Eq PrimElemRep #  
Defined in TyCon (==) :: PrimElemRep > PrimElemRep > Bool # (/=) :: PrimElemRep > PrimElemRep > Bool #  
Show PrimElemRep #  
Outputable PrimElemRep #  
isGcPtrRep :: PrimRep > Bool Source #
primRepSizeB :: DynFlags > PrimRep > Int Source #
The size of a PrimRep
in bytes.
This applies also when used in a constructor, where we allow packing the
fields. For instance, in data Foo = Foo Float
the two fields will
take only 8 bytes, which for 64bit arch will be equal to 1 word.
See also mkVirtHeapOffsetsWithPadding for details of how data fields are
layed out.
primElemRepSizeB :: PrimElemRep > Int Source #
primRepIsFloat :: PrimRep > Maybe Bool Source #
Return if Rep stands for floating type, returns Nothing for vector types.
