      Implement -XConstraintKind · 9729fe7c
      batterseapower authored
      Basically as documented in http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/KindFact,
      this patch adds a new kind Constraint such that:
      
        Show :: * -> Constraint
        (?x::Int) :: Constraint
        (Int ~ a) :: Constraint
      
      And you can write *any* type with kind Constraint to the left of (=>):
      even if that type is a type synonym, type variable, indexed type or so on.
      
      The following (somewhat related) changes are also made:
       1. We now box equality evidence. This is required because we want
          to give (Int ~ a) the *lifted* kind Constraint
       2. For similar reasons, implicit parameters can now only be of
          a lifted kind. (?x::Int#) => ty is now ruled out
       3. Implicit parameter constraints are now allowed in superclasses
          and instance contexts (this just falls out as OK with the new
          constraint solver)
      
      Internally the following major changes were made:
       1. There is now no PredTy in the Type data type. Instead
          GHC checks the kind of a type to figure out if it is a predicate
       2. There is now no AClass TyThing: we represent classes as TyThings
          just as a ATyCon (classes had TyCons anyway)
       3. What used to be (~) is now pretty-printed as (~#). The box
          constructor EqBox :: (a ~# b) -> (a ~ b)
       4. The type LCoercion is used internally in the constraint solver
          and type checker to represent coercions with free variables
          of type (a ~ b) rather than (a ~# b)

      This BIG PATCH contains most of the work for the New Coercion Representation · fdf86568
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      See the paper "Practical aspects of evidence based compilation in System FC"
      
      * Coercion becomes a data type, distinct from Type
      
      * Coercions become value-level things, rather than type-level things,
        (although the value is zero bits wide, like the State token)
        A consequence is that a coerion abstraction increases the arity by 1
        (just like a dictionary abstraction)
      
      * There is a new constructor in CoreExpr, namely Coercion, to inject
        coercions into terms

      Refactor part of the renamer to fix Trac #3901 · f1cc3eb9
      simonpj@microsoft.com authored
      This one was bigger than I anticipated!  The problem was that were
      were gathering the binders from a pattern before renaming -- but with
      record wild-cards we don't know what variables are bound by C {..}
      until after the renamer has filled in the "..".
      
      So this patch does the following
      
      * Change all the collect-X-Binders functions in HsUtils so that
        they expect to only be called *after* renaming.  That means they
        don't need to return [Located id] but just [id].  Which turned out
        to be a very worthwhile simplification all by itself.
      
      * Refactor the renamer, and in ptic RnExpr.rnStmt, so that it
        doesn't need to use collectLStmtsBinders on pre-renamed Stmts.
      
      * This in turn required me to understand how GroupStmt and
        TransformStmts were renamed.  Quite fiddly. I rewrote most of it;
        result is much shorter.
      
      * In doing so I flattened HsExpr.GroupByClause into its parent
        GroupStmt, with trivial knock-on effects in other files.
      
      Blargh.

      Several TH/quasiquote changes · 6f8ff0bb
      simonpj@microsoft.com authored
      a) Added quasi-quote forms for
            declarations
            types
         e.g.   f :: [$qq| ... |]
      
      b) Allow Template Haskell pattern quotes (but not splices)
         e.g.  f x = [p| Int -> $x |]
      
      c) Improve pretty-printing for HsPat to remove superfluous
         parens.  (This isn't TH related really, but it affects
         some of the same code.)
      
      
      A consequence of (a) is that when gathering and grouping declarations
      in RnSource.findSplice, we must expand quasiquotes as we do so.
      Otherwise it's all fairly straightforward.  I did a little bit of
      refactoring in TcSplice.
      
      User-manual changes still to come.

      Add quasi-quotation, courtesy of Geoffrey Mainland · f3399c44
      simonpj@microsoft.com authored
      This patch adds quasi-quotation, as described in
        "Nice to be Quoted: Quasiquoting for Haskell"
      	(Geoffrey Mainland, Haskell Workshop 2007)
      Implemented by Geoffrey and polished by Simon.
      
      Overview
      ~~~~~~~~
      The syntax for quasiquotation is very similar to the existing
      Template haskell syntax:
      	[$q| stuff |]
      where 'q' is the "quoter".  This syntax differs from the paper, by using
      a '$' rather than ':', to avoid clashing with parallel array comprehensions.
       
      The "quoter" is a value of type Language.Haskell.TH.Quote.QuasiQuoter, which
      contains two functions for quoting expressions and patterns, respectively.
       
           quote = Language.Haskell.TH.Quote.QuasiQuoter quoteExp quotePat
       
           quoteExp :: String -> Language.Haskell.TH.ExpQ
           quotePat :: String -> Language.Haskell.TH.PatQ
      
      TEXT is passed unmodified to the quoter. The context of the
      quasiquotation statement determines which of the two quoters is
      called: if the quasiquotation occurs in an expression context,
      quoteExp is called, and if it occurs in a pattern context, quotePat
      is called.
      
      The result of running the quoter on its arguments is spliced into
      the program using Template Haskell's existing mechanisms for
      splicing in code. Note that although Template Haskell does not
      support pattern brackets, with this patch binding occurrences of
      variables in patterns are supported. Quoters must also obey the same
      stage restrictions as Template Haskell; in particular, in this
      example quote may not be defined in the module where it is used as a
      quasiquoter, but must be imported from another module.
      
      Points to notice
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      * The whole thing is enabled with the flag -XQuasiQuotes
      
      * There is an accompanying patch to the template-haskell library. This
        involves one interface change:
      	currentModule :: Q String
        is replaced by
      	location :: Q Loc
        where Loc is a data type defined in TH.Syntax thus:
            data Loc
              = Loc { loc_filename :: String
      	      , loc_package  :: String
      	      , loc_module   :: String
      	      , loc_start    :: CharPos
      	      , loc_end      :: CharPos }
      
            type CharPos = (Int, Int)	-- Line and character position
       
        So you get a lot more info from 'location' than from 'currentModule'.
        The location you get is the location of the splice.
        
        This works in Template Haskell too of course, and lets a TH program
        generate much better error messages.
      
      * There's also a new module in the template-haskell package called 
        Language.Haskell.TH.Quote, which contains support code for the
        quasi-quoting feature.
      
      * Quasi-quote splices are run *in the renamer* because they can build 
        *patterns* and hence the renamer needs to see the output of running the
        splice.  This involved a bit of rejigging in the renamer, especially
        concerning the reporting of duplicate or shadowed names.
      
        (In fact I found and removed a few calls to checkDupNames in RnSource 
        that are redundant, becuase top-level duplicate decls are handled in
        RnNames.)

      Make the treatment of equalities more uniform · 3787d987
      simonpj@microsoft.com authored
      This patch (which is part of the fix for Trac #2018) makes coercion variables
      be handled more uniformly.  Generally, they are treated like dictionaries
      in the type checker, not like type variables, but in a couple of places we
      were treating them like type variables.  Also when zonking we should use
      zonkDictBndr not zonkIdBndr.

      View patterns, record wildcards, and record puns · 6a05ec5e
      Dan Licata authored
      This patch implements three new features:
      * view patterns (syntax: expression -> pat in a pattern)
      * working versions of record wildcards and record puns
      See the manual for detailed descriptions.
      
      Other minor observable changes:
      * There is a check prohibiting local fixity declarations
        when the variable being fixed is not defined in the same let
      * The warn-unused-binds option now reports warnings for do and mdo stmts
      
      Implementation notes: 
      
      * The pattern renamer is now in its own module, RnPat, and the
      implementation is now in a CPS style so that the correct context is
      delivered to pattern expressions.
      
      * These features required a fairly major upheaval to the renamer.
      Whereas the old version used to collect up all the bindings from a let
      (or top-level, or recursive do statement, ...) and put them into scope
      before renaming anything, the new version does the collection as it
      renames.  This allows us to do the right thing with record wildcard
      patterns (which need to be expanded to see what names should be
      collected), and it allows us to implement the desired semantics for view
      patterns in lets.  This change had a bunch of domino effects brought on
      by fiddling with the top-level renaming.
      
      * Prior to this patch, there was a tricky bug in mkRecordSelId in HEAD,
      which did not maintain the invariant necessary for loadDecl.  See note
      [Tricky iface loop] for details.

      Add several new record features · 2eb04ca0
      David Himmelstrup authored
      1. Record disambiguation (-fdisambiguate-record-fields)
      
      In record construction and pattern matching (although not
      in record updates) it is clear which field name is intended
      even if there are several in scope.  This extension uses
      the constructor to disambiguate.  Thus
      	C { x=3 }
      uses the 'x' field from constructor C (assuming there is one)
      even if there are many x's in scope.
      
      
      2. Record punning (-frecord-puns)
      
      In a record construction or pattern match or update you can 
      omit the "=" part, thus
      	C { x, y }
      This is just syntactic sugar for
      	C { x=x, y=y }
      
      
      3.  Dot-dot notation for records (-frecord-dot-dot)
      
      In record construction or pattern match (but not update) 
      you can use ".." to mean "all the remaining fields".  So
      
      	C { x=v, .. }
      
      means to fill in the remaining fields to give
      
      	C { x=v, y=y }
      
      (assuming C has fields x and y).  This might reasonably
      considered very dodgy stuff.  For pattern-matching it brings
      into scope a bunch of things that are not explictly mentioned;
      and in record construction it just picks whatver 'y' is in
      scope for the 'y' field.   Still, Lennart Augustsson really
      wants it, and it's a feature that is extremely easy to explain.
      
      
      Implementation
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      I thought of using the "parent" field in the GlobalRdrEnv, but
      that's really used for import/export and just isn't right for this.
      For example, for import/export a field is a subordinate of the *type
      constructor* whereas here we need to know what fields belong to a
      particular *data* constructor.
      
      The main thing is that we need to map a data constructor to its
      fields, and we need to do so in the renamer.   For imported modules
      it's easy: just look in the imported TypeEnv.  For the module being
      compiled, we make a new field tcg_field_env in the TcGblEnv.
      The important functions are
      	RnEnv.lookupRecordBndr
      	RnEnv.lookupConstructorFields
      
      There is still a significant infelicity in the way the renamer
      works on patterns, which I'll tackle next.
      
      
      I also did quite a bit of refactoring in the representation of
      record fields (mainly in HsPat).***END OF DESCRIPTION***

      Fix a bug in MatchCon, and clarify what dataConInstOrigArgTys does · 00b6d256
      David Himmelstrup authored
      There was an outright bug in MatchCon.matchOneCon, in the construction
      of arg_tys.  Easily fixed.  It never showed up becuase the arg_tys are
      only used in WildPats, and they in turn seldom have their types looked
      (except by hsPatType).  So I can't make a test case for htis.
      
      While I was investigating, I added a bit of clarifation and
      invariant-checking to dataConInstOrigArgTys and dataConInstArgTys
