      Permit empty closed type families · 4efa4213
      Adam Gundry authored
      Fixes #9840 and #10306, and includes an alternative resolution to #8028.
      This permits empty closed type families, and documents them in the user
      guide. It updates the Haddock submodule to support the API change.
      
      Test Plan: Added `indexed-types/should_compile/T9840` and updated
      `indexed-types/should_fail/ClosedFam4` and `th/T8028`.

      parser: opt_kind_sig has incorrect SrcSpan · 8aefc9b7
      Alan Zimmerman authored
      The production for opt_kind_sig is
      
        opt_kind_sig :: { Located (Maybe (LHsKind RdrName)) }
                :                             { noLoc Nothing }
                | '::' kind                   {% ajl (sLL $1 $> (Just $2)) AnnDcolon (gl $1) }
      
      The outer Location is used only to get the full span for the enclosing
      declration, and is then stripped. The inner LHsKind then has a SrcSpan that does
      not include the '::'
      
      Extend the SrcSpan on $2 to include $1

      Refactor the handling of quasi-quotes · f46360ed
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      As Trac #10047 points out, a quasi-quotation [n|...blah...|] is supposed
      to behave exactly like $(n "...blah...").  But it doesn't!  This was outright
      wrong: quasiquotes were being run even inside brackets.
      
      Now that TH supports both typed and untyped splices, a quasi-quote is properly
      regarded as a particular syntax for an untyped splice. But apart from that
      they should be treated the same.  So this patch refactors the handling of
      quasiquotes to do just that.
      
      The changes touch quite a lot of files, but mostly in a routine way.
      The biggest changes by far are in RnSplice, and more minor changes in
      TcSplice.  These are the places where there was real work to be done.
      Everything else is routine knock-on changes.
      
      * No more QuasiQuote forms in declarations, expressions, types, etc.
        So we get rid of these data constructors
          * HsBinds.QuasiQuoteD
          * HsExpr.HsSpliceE
          * HsPat.QuasiQuotePat
          * HsType.HsQuasiQuoteTy
      
      * We get rid of the HsQuasiQuote type altogether
      
      * Instead, we augment the HsExpr.HsSplice type to have three
        consructors, for the three types of splice:
          * HsTypedSplice
          * HsUntypedSplice
          * HsQuasiQuote
        There are some related changes in the data types in HsExpr near HsSplice.
        Specifically: PendingRnSplice, PendingTcSplice, UntypedSpliceFlavour.
      
      * In Hooks, we combine rnQuasiQuoteHook and rnRnSpliceHook into one.
        A smaller, clearer interface.
      
      * We have to update the Haddock submodule, to accommodate the hsSyn changes

      API Annotations documentation update, parsing issue, add example test · 851ed721
      Alan Zimmerman authored
      Summary:
      Add a reference note to each AnnKeywordId haddock comment so GHC
      developers will have an idea why they are there.
      
      Add a new test to ghc-api/annotations to serve as a template for other
      GHC developers when they need to update the parser. It provides output
      which checks that each SrcSpan that an annotation is attached to
      actually appears in the `ParsedSource`, and lists the individual
      annotations. The idea is that a developer writes a version of this
      which parses a sample file using whatever syntax is changed in
      Parser.y, and can then check that all the annotations come through.

      Add API Annotations · 803fc5db
      Alan Zimmerman authored
      Summary:
      The final design and discussion is captured at
      https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/GhcAstAnnotations
      
      This is a proof of concept implementation of a completely
      separate annotation structure, populated in the parser,and tied to the
      AST by means of a virtual "node-key" comprising the surrounding
      SrcSpan and a value derived from the specific constructor used for the
      node.
      
      The key parts of the design are the following.
      
      == The Annotations ==
      
      In `hsSyn/ApiAnnotation.hs`
      
      ```lang=haskell
      type ApiAnns = (Map.Map ApiAnnKey SrcSpan, Map.Map SrcSpan [Located Token])
      
      type ApiAnnKey = (SrcSpan,AnnKeywordId)
      
      -- ---------------------------------------------------------------------
      
      -- | Retrieve an annotation based on the @SrcSpan@ of the annotated AST
      -- element, and the known type of the annotation.
      getAnnotation :: ApiAnns -> SrcSpan -> AnnKeywordId -> Maybe SrcSpan
      getAnnotation (anns,_) span ann = Map.lookup (span,ann) anns
      
      -- |Retrieve the comments allocated to the current @SrcSpan@
      getAnnotationComments :: ApiAnns -> SrcSpan -> [Located Token]
      getAnnotationComments (_,anns) span =
        case Map.lookup span anns of
          Just cs -> cs
          Nothing -> []
      
      -- | Note: in general the names of these are taken from the
      -- corresponding token, unless otherwise noted
      data AnnKeywordId
               = AnnAs
               | AnnBang
               | AnnClass
               | AnnClose -- ^ } or ] or ) or #) etc
               | AnnComma
               | AnnDarrow
               | AnnData
               | AnnDcolon
               ....
      ```
      
      == Capturing in the lexer/parser ==
      
      The annotations are captured in the lexer / parser by extending PState to include a field
      
      In `parser/Lexer.x`
      
      ```lang=haskell
      data PState = PState {
              ....
              annotations :: [(ApiAnnKey,SrcSpan)]
              -- Annotations giving the locations of 'noise' tokens in the
              -- source, so that users of the GHC API can do source to
              -- source conversions.
           }
      ```
      
      The lexer exposes a helper function to add an annotation
      
      ```lang=haskell
      addAnnotation :: SrcSpan -> Ann -> SrcSpan -> P ()
      addAnnotation l a v = P $ \s -> POk s {
        annotations = ((AK l a), v) : annotations s
        } ()
      
      ```
      
      The parser also has some helper functions of the form
      
      ```lang=haskell
      type MaybeAnn = Maybe (SrcSpan -> P ())
      
      gl = getLoc
      gj x = Just (gl x)
      
      ams :: Located a -> [MaybeAnn] -> P (Located a)
      ams a@(L l _) bs = (mapM_ (\a -> a l) $ catMaybes bs) >> return a
      ```
      
      This allows annotations to be captured in the parser by means of
      
      ```
      ctypedoc :: { LHsType RdrName }
              : 'forall' tv_bndrs '.' ctypedoc {% hintExplicitForall (getLoc $1) >>
                                                  ams (LL $ mkExplicitHsForAllTy $2 (noLoc []) $4)
                                                      [mj AnnForall $1,mj AnnDot $3] }
              | context '=>' ctypedoc         {% ams (LL $ mkQualifiedHsForAllTy   $1 $3)
                                                     [mj AnnDarrow $2] }
              | ipvar '::' type               {% ams (LL (HsIParamTy (unLoc $1) $3))
                                                     [mj AnnDcolon $2] }
              | typedoc                       { $1 }
      ```
      
      == Parse result ==
      
      ```lang-haskell
      data HsParsedModule = HsParsedModule {
          hpm_module    :: Located (HsModule RdrName),
          hpm_src_files :: [FilePath],
             -- ^ extra source files (e.g. from #includes).  The lexer collects
             -- these from '# <file> <line>' pragmas, which the C preprocessor
             -- leaves behind.  These files and their timestamps are stored in
             -- the .hi file, so that we can force recompilation if any of
             -- them change (#3589)
          hpm_annotations :: ApiAnns
        }
      
      -- | The result of successful parsing.
      data ParsedModule =
        ParsedModule { pm_mod_summary   :: ModSummary
                     , pm_parsed_source :: ParsedSource
                     , pm_extra_src_files :: [FilePath]
                     , pm_annotations :: ApiAnns }
      ```

      Export `Traversable()` and `Foldable()` from Prelude · c0fa383d
      Herbert Valerio Riedel authored
      This exposes *only* the type-classes w/o any of their methods.
      This is the very first step for implementing BPP (see #9586), which
      already requires breaking up several import-cycles leading back to `Prelude`.
      
      Ideally, importing `Prelude` should be avoided in most `base` modules,
      as `Prelude` does not define any entities, but rather re-exports
      existing ones.

      Implement OVERLAPPING and OVERLAPPABLE pragmas (see #9242) · 97f499b5
      Iavor S. Diatchki authored
      This also removes the short-lived NO_OVERLAP pragama, and renames
      OVERLAP to OVERLAPS.
      
      An instance may be annotated with one of 4 pragams, to control its
      interaction with other overlapping instances:
      
        * OVERLAPPABLE:
          this instance is ignored if a more specific candidate exists
      
        * OVERLAPPING:
          this instance is preferred over more general candidates
      
        * OVERLAPS:
          both OVERLAPPING and OVERLAPPABLE (i.e., the previous GHC behavior).
          When compiling with -XOverlappingInstances, all instance are OVERLAPS.
      
        * INCOHERENT:
          same as before (see manual for details).
          When compiling with -XIncoherentInstances, all instances are INCOHERENT.

      Entirely re-jig the handling of default type-family instances (fixes Trac #9063) · 9b8ba629
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      In looking at Trac #9063 I decided to re-design the default
      instances for associated type synonyms.  Previously it was all
      jolly complicated, to support generality that no one wanted, and
      was arguably undesirable.
      
      Specifically
      
      * The default instance for an associated type can have only
        type variables on the LHS.  (Not type patterns.)
      
      * There can be at most one default instances declaration for
        each associated type.
      
      To achieve this I had to do a surprisingly large amount of refactoring
      of HsSyn, specifically to parameterise HsDecls.TyFamEqn over the type
      of the LHS patterns.
      
      That change in HsDecls has a (trivial) knock-on effect in Haddock, so
      this commit does a submodule update too.
      
      The net result is good though.  The code is simpler; the language
      specification is simpler.  Happy days.
      
      Trac #9263 and #9264 are thereby fixed as well.

      Overlapable pragmas for individual instances (#9242) · 6290eead
      Iavor S. Diatchki authored
      Programmers may provide a pragma immediately after the `instance` keyword
      to control the overlap/incoherence behavior for individual instances.
      For example:
      
          instance {-# OVERLAP #-} C a where ...
      
      I chose this notation, rather than the other two outlined in the ticket
      for these reasons:
      
         1. Having the pragma after the type looks odd, I think.
         2. Having the pragma after there `where` does not work for
             stand-alone derived instances
      
      I have implemented 3 pragams:
      
         1. NO_OVERLAP
         2. OVERLAP
         3. INCOHERENT
      
      These correspond directly to the internal modes currently supported by
      GHC.  If a pragma is specified, it will be used no matter what flags are
      turned on.   For example, putting `NO_OVERLAP` on an instance will mark
      it as non-overlapping, even if `OVERLAPPIN_INSTANCES` is turned on for the
      module.

      Another raft of Template Haskell clean-up · 51deeb0d
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      The handling of typed and untyped brackets was extremely convoluted,
      partly because of the evolutionary history.  I've tidied it all up.
      
      See Note [How brackets and nested splices are handled] in TcSplice
      for the full story
      
      Main changes:
      
       * Untyped brackets: after the renamer, HsRnBracketOut carries
         PendingRnSplices for splices in untyped brackets.  In the
         typechecker, these pending splices are typechecked quite
         straigtforwardly, with no ps_var nonsense.
      
       * Typed brackets: after the renamer typed brackest still look
         like HsBracket. The type checker does the ps_var thing.
      
       * In TcRnTypes.ThStage, the Brack constructor, we distinguish
         the renaming from typehecking pending-stuff.  Much more
         perspicuous!
      
       * The "typed" flag is in HsSpliceE, not in HsSplice, because
         only expressions can be typed.  Patterns, types, declarations
         cannot.
      
      There is further improvement to be done to make the handling of
      declaration splices more uniform.

      in the comments to #8185, appears in the "Roles" subsection of the
      manual, and on the [wiki:Roles] wiki page.
      
      This change also removes the ability for a role annotation on type
      synonyms, as noted in #8234.

      Fix Trac #7939, and add kind inference to closed type families. · 8c5e7346
      eir@cis.upenn.edu authored
      Now, all open type families have result kinds that default to
      *. Top-level type families have all arguments default to *,
      and associated type families have all arguments that are not
      mentioned in the class header default to *. Closed type
      families perform kind inference, but generalize only over
      those kind variables that are parametric in their use.
      
      This is all a little fiddly and specific, but it seems to follow
      use cases. This commit also includes a large
      Note [Kind-checking strategies] in TcHsType that helps keep all
      of this straight.

      Revise implementation of overlapping type family instances. · 569b2652
      eir@cis.upenn.edu authored
      This commit changes the syntax and story around overlapping type
      family instances. Before, we had "unbranched" instances and
      "branched" instances. Now, we have closed type families and
      open ones.
      
      The behavior of open families is completely unchanged. In particular,
      coincident overlap of open type family instances still works, despite
      emails to the contrary.
      
      A closed type family is declared like this:
      > type family F a where
      >   F Int = Bool
      >   F a   = Char
      The equations are tried in order, from top to bottom, subject to
      certain constraints, as described in the user manual. It is not
      allowed to declare an instance of a closed family.

      Implement overlapping type family instances. · 8366792e
      eir@cis.upenn.edu authored
      An ordered, overlapping type family instance is introduced by 'type
      instance
      where', followed by equations. See the new section in the user manual
      (7.7.2.2) for details. The canonical example is Boolean equality at the
      type
      level:
      
      type family Equals (a :: k) (b :: k) :: Bool
      type instance where
        Equals a a = True
        Equals a b = False
      
      A branched family instance, such as this one, checks its equations in
      order
      and applies only the first the matches. As explained in the note
      [Instance
      checking within groups] in FamInstEnv.lhs, we must be careful not to
      simplify,
      say, (Equals Int b) to False, because b might later unify with Int.
      
      This commit includes all of the commits on the overlapping-tyfams
      branch. SPJ
      requested that I combine all my commits over the past several months
      into one
      monolithic commit. The following GHC repos are affected: ghc, testsuite,
      utils/haddock, libraries/template-haskell, and libraries/dph.
      
      Here are some details for the interested:
      
      - The definition of CoAxiom has been moved from TyCon.lhs to a
        new file CoAxiom.lhs. I made this decision because of the
        number of definitions necessary to support BranchList.
      
      - BranchList is a GADT whose type tracks whether it is a
        singleton list or not-necessarily-a-singleton-list. The reason
        I introduced this type is to increase static checking of places
        where GHC code assumes that a FamInst or CoAxiom is indeed a
        singleton. This assumption takes place roughly 10 times
        throughout the code. I was worried that a future change to GHC
        would invalidate the assumption, and GHC might subtly fail to
        do the right thing. By explicitly labeling CoAxioms and
        FamInsts as being Unbranched (singleton) or
        Branched (not-necessarily-singleton), we make this assumption
        explicit and checkable. Furthermore, to enforce the accuracy of
        this label, the list of branches of a CoAxiom or FamInst is
        stored using a BranchList, whose constructors constrain its
        type index appropriately.
      
      I think that the decision to use BranchList is probably the most
      controversial decision I made from a code design point of view.
      Although I provide conversions to/from ordinary lists, it is more
      efficient to use the brList... functions provided in CoAxiom than
      always to convert. The use of these functions does not wander far
      from the core CoAxiom/FamInst logic.
      
      BranchLists are motivated and explained in the note [Branched axioms] in
      CoAxiom.lhs.
      
      - The CoAxiom type has changed significantly. You can see the new
        type in CoAxiom.lhs. It uses a CoAxBranch type to track
        branches of the CoAxiom. Correspondingly various functions
        producing and consuming CoAxioms had to change, including the
        binary layout of interface files.
      
      - To get branched axioms to work correctly, it is important to have a
        notion
        of type "apartness": two types are apart if they cannot unify, and no
        substitution of variables can ever get them to unify, even after type
      family
        simplification. (This is different than the normal failure to unify
      because
        of the type family bit.) This notion in encoded in tcApartTys, in
      Unify.lhs.
        Because apartness is finer-grained than unification, the tcUnifyTys
      now
        calls tcApartTys.
      
      - CoreLinting axioms has been updated, both to reflect the new
        form of CoAxiom and to enforce the apartness rules of branch
        application. The formalization of the new rules is in
        docs/core-spec/core-spec.pdf.
      
      - The FamInst type (in types/FamInstEnv.lhs) has changed
        significantly, paralleling the changes to CoAxiom. Of course,
        this forced minor changes in many files.
      
      - There are several new Notes in FamInstEnv.lhs, including one
        discussing confluent overlap and why we're not doing it.
      
      - lookupFamInstEnv, lookupFamInstEnvConflicts, and
        lookup_fam_inst_env' (the function that actually does the work)
        have all been more-or-less completely rewritten. There is a
        Note [lookup_fam_inst_env' implementation] describing the
        implementation. One of the changes that affects other files is
        to change the type of matches from a pair of (FamInst, [Type])
        to a new datatype (which now includes the index of the matching
        branch). This seemed a better design.
      
      - The TySynInstD constructor in Template Haskell was updated to
        use the new datatype TySynEqn. I also bumped the TH version
        number, requiring changes to DPH cabal files. (That's why the
        DPH repo has an overlapping-tyfams branch.)
      
      - As SPJ requested, I refactored some of the code in HsDecls:
      
       * splitting up TyDecl into SynDecl and DataDecl, correspondingly
         changing HsTyDefn to HsDataDefn (with only one constructor)
      
       * splitting FamInstD into TyFamInstD and DataFamInstD and
         splitting FamInstDecl into DataFamInstDecl and TyFamInstDecl
      
       * making the ClsInstD take a ClsInstDecl, for parallelism with
         InstDecl's other constructors
      
       * changing constructor TyFamily into FamDecl
      
       * creating a FamilyDecl type that stores the details for a family
         declaration; this is useful because FamilyDecls can appear in classes
      but
         other decls cannot
      
       * restricting the associated types and associated type defaults for a
       * class
         to be the new, more restrictive types
      
       * splitting cid_fam_insts into cid_tyfam_insts and cid_datafam_insts,
         according to the new types
      
       * perhaps one or two more that I'm overlooking
      
      None of these changes has far-reaching implications.
      
      - The user manual, section 7.7.2.2, is updated to describe the new type
        family
        instances.

      Refactor LHsTyVarBndrs to fix Trac #6081 · fc8959ac
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      This is really a small change, but it touches a lot of files quite
      significantly. The real goal is to put the implicitly-bound kind
      variables of a data/class decl in the right place, namely on the
      LHsTyVarBndrs type, which now looks like
      
        data LHsTyVarBndrs name
          = HsQTvs { hsq_kvs :: [Name]
                   , hsq_tvs :: [LHsTyVarBndr name]
            }
      
      This little change made the type checker neater in a number of
      ways, but it was fiddly to push through the changes.
