      Udate hsSyn AST to use Trees that Grow · 8e6ec0fa
      Alan Zimmerman authored
      Summary:
      See https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/ImplementingTreesThatGrow
      
      This commit prepares the ground for a full extensible AST, by replacing the type
      parameter for the hsSyn data types with a set of indices into type families,
      
          data GhcPs -- ^ Index for GHC parser output
          data GhcRn -- ^ Index for GHC renamer output
          data GhcTc -- ^ Index for GHC typechecker output
      
      These are now used instead of `RdrName`, `Name` and `Id`/`TcId`/`Var`
      
      Where the original name type is required in a polymorphic context, this is
      accessible via the IdP type family, defined as
      
          type family IdP p
          type instance IdP GhcPs = RdrName
          type instance IdP GhcRn = Name
          type instance IdP GhcTc = Id
      
      These types are declared in the new 'hsSyn/HsExtension.hs' module.
      
      To gain a better understanding of the extension mechanism, it has been applied
      to `HsLit` only, also replacing the `SourceText` fields in them with extension
      types.
      
      To preserve extension generality, a type class is introduced to capture the
      `SourceText` interface, which must be honoured by all of the extension points
      which originally had a `SourceText`.  The class is defined as
      
          class HasSourceText a where
            -- Provide setters to mimic existing constructors
            noSourceText  :: a
            sourceText    :: String -> a
      
            setSourceText :: SourceText -> a
            getSourceText :: a -> SourceText
      
      And the constraint is captured in `SourceTextX`, which is a constraint type
      listing all the extension points that make use of the class.
      
      Updating Haddock submodule to match.

      Some tidying up of type pretty-printing · ad14efd5
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      Triggered by the changes in #13677, I ended up doing a bit of
      refactoring in type pretty-printing.
      
      * We were using TyOpPrec and FunPrec rather inconsitently, so
        I made it consisent.
      
      * That exposed the fact that we were a bit undecided about whether
        to print
           a + b -> c + d   vs   (a+b) -> (c+d)
        and similarly
           a ~ [b] => blah  vs   (a ~ [b]) => blah
      
        I decided to make TyOpPrec and FunPrec compare equal
        (in BasicTypes), so (->) is treated as equal precedence with
        other type operators, so you get the unambiguous forms above,
        even though they have more parens.
      
        We could readily reverse this decision.
        See Note [Type operator precedence] in BasicTypes
      
      * I fixed a bug in pretty-printing of HsType where some
        parens were omitted by mistake.

      Fix #13337. · e0c433c8
      Richard Eisenberg authored
      The big change is the introduction of solveSomeEqualities. This
      is just like solveEqualities, but it doesn't fail if there are unsolved
      equalities when it's all done. Anything unsolved is re-emitted. This
      is appropriate if we are not kind-generalizing, so this new form
      is used when decideKindGeneralizationPlan says not to.
      
      We initially thought that any use of solveEqualities would be tied
      to kind generalization, but this isn't true. For example, we need
      to solveEqualities a bunch in the "tc" pass in TcTyClsDecls (which
      is really desugaring). These equalities are all surely going to be
      soluble (if they weren't the "kc" pass would fail), but we still
      need to solve them again. Perhaps if the "kc" pass produced type-
      checked output that is then desugared, solveEqualities really would
      be tied only to kind generalization.

      Ditch static flags · bbd3c399
      Sylvain Henry authored
      This patch converts the 4 lasting static flags (read from the command
      line and unsafely stored in immutable global variables) into dynamic
      flags. Most use cases have been converted into reading them from a DynFlags.
      
      In cases for which we don't have easy access to a DynFlags, we read from
      'unsafeGlobalDynFlags' that is set at the beginning of each 'runGhc'.
      It's not perfect (not thread-safe) but it is still better as we can
      set/unset these 4 flags before each run when using GHC API.
      
      Updates haddock submodule.

      Add infix flag for class and data declarations · 8f6d241a
      Alan Zimmerman authored
      Summary:
      At the moment, data and type declarations using infix formatting produce the
      same AST as those using prefix.
      
      So
      
          type a ++ b = c
      
      and
      
          type (++) a b = c
      
      cannot be distinguished in the parsed source, without looking at the OccName
      details of the constructor being defined.
      
      Having access to the OccName requires an additional constraint which explodes
      out over the entire AST because of its recursive definitions.
      
      In keeping with moving the parsed source to more directly reflect the source
      code as parsed, add a specific flag to the declaration to indicate the fixity,
      as used in a Match now too.
      
      Note: this flag is to capture the fixity used for the lexical definition of the
      type, primarily for use by ppr and ghc-exactprint.

      Add HsSyn prettyprinter tests · 499e4382
      Alan Zimmerman authored
      Summary:
      Add prettyprinter tests, which take a file, parse it, pretty print it,
      re-parse the pretty printed version and then compare the original and
      new ASTs (ignoring locations)
      
      Updates haddock submodule to match the AST changes.
      
      There are three issues outstanding
      
      1. Extra parens around a context are not reproduced. This will require an
         AST change and will be done in a separate patch.
      
      2. Currently if an `HsTickPragma` is found, this is not pretty-printed,
         to prevent noise in the output.
      
         I am not sure what the desired behaviour in this case is, so have left
         it as before. Test Ppr047 is marked as expected fail for this.
      
      3. Apart from in a context, the ParsedSource AST keeps all the parens from
         the original source.  Something is happening in the renamer to remove the
         parens around visible type application, causing T12530 to fail, as the
         dumped splice decl is after the renamer.
      
         This needs to be fixed by keeping the parens, but I do not know where they
         are being removed.  I have amended the test to pass, by removing the parens
         in the expected output.

      Implement unboxed sum primitive type · 714bebff
      Ömer Sinan Ağacan authored
      Summary:
      This patch implements primitive unboxed sum types, as described in
      https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/UnpackedSumTypes.
      
      Main changes are:
      
      - Add new syntax for unboxed sums types, terms and patterns. Hidden
        behind `-XUnboxedSums`.
      
      - Add unlifted unboxed sum type constructors and data constructors,
        extend type and pattern checkers and desugarer.
      
      - Add new RuntimeRep for unboxed sums.
      
      - Extend unarise pass to translate unboxed sums to unboxed tuples right
        before code generation.
      
      - Add `StgRubbishArg` to `StgArg`, and a new type `CmmArg` for better
        code generation when sum values are involved.
      
      - Add user manual section for unboxed sums.
      
      Some other changes:
      
      - Generalize `UbxTupleRep` to `MultiRep` and `UbxTupAlt` to
        `MultiValAlt` to be able to use those with both sums and tuples.
      
      - Don't use `tyConPrimRep` in `isVoidTy`: `tyConPrimRep` is really
        wrong, given an `Any` `TyCon`, there's no way to tell what its kind
        is, but `kindPrimRep` and in turn `tyConPrimRep` returns `PtrRep`.
      
      - Fix some bugs on the way: #12375.
      
      Not included in this patch:
      
      - Update Haddock for new the new unboxed sum syntax.
      
      - `TemplateHaskell` support is left as future work.
      
      For reviewers:
      
      - Front-end code is mostly trivial and adapted from unboxed tuple code
        for type checking, pattern checking, renaming, desugaring etc.
      
      - Main translation routines are in `RepType` and `UnariseStg`.
        Documentation in `UnariseStg` should be enough for understanding
        what's going on.
      
      Credits:
      
      - Johan Tibell wrote the initial front-end and interface file
        extensions.
      
      - Simon Peyton Jones reviewed this patch many times, wrote some code,
        and helped with debugging.

      Improve typechecking of let-bindings · 15b9bf4b
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      This major commit was initially triggered by #11339, but it spiraled
      into a major review of the way in which type signatures for bindings
      are handled, especially partial type signatures.  On the way I fixed a
      number of other bugs, namely
         #12069
         #12033
         #11700
         #11339
         #11670
      
      The main change is that I completely reorganised the way in which type
      signatures in bindings are handled. The new story is in TcSigs
      Note [Overview of type signatures].  Some specific:
      
      * Changes in the data types for signatures in TcRnTypes:
        TcIdSigInfo and new TcIdSigInst
      
      * New module TcSigs deals with typechecking type signatures
        and pragmas. It contains code mostly moved from TcBinds,
        which is already too big
      
      * HsTypes: I swapped the nesting of HsWildCardBndrs
        and HsImplicitBndsrs, so that the wildcards are on the
        oustide not the insidde in a LHsSigWcType.  This is just
        a matter of convenient, nothing deep.
      
      There are a host of other changes as knock-on effects, and
      it all took FAR longer than I anticipated :-).  But it is
      a significant improvement, I think.
      
      Lots of error messages changed slightly, some just variants but
      some modest improvements.
      
      New tests
      
      * typecheck/should_compile
          * SigTyVars: a scoped-tyvar test
          * ExPat, ExPatFail: existential pattern bindings
          * T12069
          * T11700
          * T11339
      
      * partial-sigs/should_compile
          * T12033
          * T11339a
          * T11670
      
      One thing to check:
      
      * Small change to output from ghc-api/landmines.
        Need to check with Alan Zimmerman

      Allow foralls in instance decls · 2cf3cac6
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      This patch finally makes it possible to have explicit
      foralls in an instance decl
         instance forall (a :: *). Eq a => Eq [a] where ...
      
      This is useful to allow kind signatures or indeed
      explicicit kind for-alls; see Trac #11519
      
      I thought it would be really easy, because an instance
      declaration already contains an actual HsSigType, so all
      the syntactic baggage is there.  But in fact it turned
      out that instance declarations were kind-checked a
      little differently, because the body kind of the forall
      is 'Constraint' rather than '*'.
      
      So I fixed that.  There a slight kludge
      (see Note [Body kind of a HsQualTy], but it's still a
      significant improvement.
      
      I also did the usual other round of refactoring,
      improved a few error messages, tidied up comments etc.
      The only significant aspect of all that was
      
        * Kill mkNakedSpecSigmaTy, mkNakedPhiTy, mkNakedFunTy
          These function names suggest that they do something
          complicated, but acutally they do nothing. So I
          killed them.
      
        * Swap the arg order of mkNamedBinder, just so that it is
          convenient to say 'map (mkNamedBinder Invisible) tvs'
      
        * I had to improve isPredTy, to deal with (illegal)
          types like
             (Eq a => Eq [a]) => blah
          See Note [isPeredTy complications] in Type.hs
      
      Still to come: user manual documentation for the
      instance-decl change.

      Replace calls to `ptext . sLit` with `text` · b8abd852
      Jan Stolarek authored
      Summary:
      In the past the canonical way for constructing an SDoc string literal was the
      composition `ptext . sLit`.  But for some time now we have function `text` that
      does the same.  Plus it has some rules that optimize its runtime behaviour.
      This patch takes all uses of `ptext . sLit` in the compiler and replaces them
      with calls to `text`.  The main benefits of this patch are clener (shorter) code
      and less dependencies between module, because many modules now do not need to
      import `FastString`.  I don't expect any performance benefits - we mostly use
      SDocs to report errors and it seems there is little to be gained here.

      Refactor named wildcards (again) · 575a98e4
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      Michal's work on #10982, #11098, refactored the handling of named
      wildcards by making them more like ordinary type variables.
      
      This patch takes the same idea to its logical conclusion, resulting
      in a much tidier, tighter implementation.
      
      Read Note [The wildcard story for types] in HsTypes.
      
      Changes:
      
       * Named wildcards are ordinary type variables, throughout
      
       * HsType no longer has a data constructor for named wildcards
         (was NamedWildCard in HsWildCardInfo).  Named wildcards are
         simply HsTyVars
      
       * Similarly named wildcards disappear from Template Haskell
      
       * I refactored RnTypes to avoid polluting LocalRdrEnv with something
         as narrow as named wildcards.  Instead the named wildcard set is

      Add kind equalities to GHC. · 67465497
      eir@cis.upenn.edu authored
      This implements the ideas originally put forward in
      "System FC with Explicit Kind Equality" (ICFP'13).
      
      There are several noteworthy changes with this patch:
       * We now have casts in types. These change the kind
         of a type. See new constructor `CastTy`.
      
       * All types and all constructors can be promoted.
         This includes GADT constructors. GADT pattern matches
         take place in type family equations. In Core,
         types can now be applied to coercions via the
         `CoercionTy` constructor.
      
       * Coercions can now be heterogeneous, relating types
         of different kinds. A coercion proving `t1 :: k1 ~ t2 :: k2`
         proves both that `t1` and `t2` are the same and also that
         `k1` and `k2` are the same.
      
       * The `Coercion` type has been significantly enhanced.
         The documentation in `docs/core-spec/core-spec.pdf` reflects
         the new reality.
      
       * The type of `*` is now `*`. No more `BOX`.
      
       * Users can write explicit kind variables in their code,
         anywhere they can write type variables. For backward compatibility,
         automatic inference of kind-variable binding is still permitted.
      
       * The new extension `TypeInType` turns on the new user-facing
         features.
      
       * Type families and synonyms are now promoted to kinds. This causes
         trouble with parsing `*`, leading to the somewhat awkward new
         `HsAppsTy` constructor for `HsType`. This is dispatched with in
         the renamer, where the kind `*` can be told apart from a
         type-level multiplication operator. Without `-XTypeInType` the
         old behavior persists. With `-XTypeInType`, you need to import
         `Data.Kind` to get `*`, also known as `Type`.
      
       * The kind-checking algorithms in TcHsType have been significantly
         rewritten to allow for enhanced kinds.
      
       * The new features are still quite experimental and may be in flux.
      
       * TODO: Several open tickets: #11195, #11196, #11197, #11198, #11203.
      
       * TODO: Update user manual.
      
      Tickets addressed: #9017, #9173, #7961, #10524, #8566, #11142.
      Updates Haddock submodule.

      Fix infix record field fixity (#11167 and #11173). · 6e56ac58
      Adam Gundry authored
      This extends D1585 with proper support for infix duplicate record
      fields.  In particular, it is now possible to declare record fields as
      infix in a module for which `DuplicateRecordFields` is enabled, fixity
      is looked up correctly and a readable (although unpleasant) error
      message is generated if multiple fields with different fixities are in
      scope.
      
      As a bonus, `DEPRECATED` and `WARNING` pragmas now work for
      duplicate record fields. The pragma applies to all fields with the
      given label.
      
      In addition, a couple of minor `DuplicateRecordFields` bugs, which were
      pinpointed by the `T11167_ambig` test case, are fixed by this patch:
      
        - Ambiguous infix fields can now be disambiguated by putting a type
          signature on the first argument
      
        - Polymorphic type constructor signatures (such as `ContT () IO a` in
          `T11167_ambig`) now work for disambiguation
      
      Parts of this patch are from D1585 authored by @KaneTW.

      Refactor ConDecl · 51a5e68d
      Alan Zimmerman authored
      The ConDecl type in HsDecls is an uneasy compromise. For the most part,
      HsSyn directly reflects the syntax written by the programmer; and that
      gives just the right "pegs" on which to hang Alan's API annotations. But
      ConDecl doesn't properly reflect the syntax of Haskell-98 and GADT-style
      data type declarations.
      
      To be concrete, here's a draft new data type
      
      ```lang=hs
      data ConDecl name
        | ConDeclGADT
            { con_names   :: [Located name]
            , con_type    :: LHsSigType name  -- The type after the ‘::’
            , con_doc     :: Maybe LHsDocString }
      
        | ConDeclH98
            { con_name    :: Located name
      
            , con_qvars     :: Maybe (LHsQTyVars name)
              -- User-written forall (if any), and its implicit
              -- kind variables
              -- Non-Nothing needs -XExistentialQuantification
      
            , con_cxt       :: Maybe (LHsContext name)
              -- ^ User-written context (if any)
      
            , con_details   :: HsConDeclDetails name
                -- ^ Arguments
      
            , con_doc       :: Maybe LHsDocString
                -- ^ A possible Haddock comment.
            } deriving (Typeable)
      ```
      
      Note that
      
          For GADTs, just keep a type. That's what the user writes.
          NB:HsType can represent records on the LHS of an arrow:
      
            { x:Int,y:Bool} -> T
      
          con_qvars and con_cxt are both Maybe because they are both
          optional (the forall and the context of an existential data type
      
          For ConDeclGADT the type variables of the data type do not scope
          over the con_type; whereas for ConDeclH98 they do scope over con_cxt
          and con_details.
      
      Updates haddock submodule.

      Refactor treatment of wildcards · 1e041b73
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      This patch began as a modest refactoring of HsType and friends, to
      clarify and tidy up exactly where quantification takes place in types.
      Although initially driven by making the implementation of wildcards more
      tidy (and fixing a number of bugs), I gradually got drawn into a pretty
      big process, which I've been doing on and off for quite a long time.
      
      There is one compiler performance regression as a result of all
      this, in perf/compiler/T3064.  I still need to look into that.
      
      * The principal driving change is described in Note [HsType binders]
        in HsType.  Well worth reading!
      
      * Those data type changes drive almost everything else.  In particular
        we now statically know where
      
             (a) implicit quantification only (LHsSigType),
                 e.g. in instance declaratios and SPECIALISE signatures
      
             (b) implicit quantification and wildcards (LHsSigWcType)
                 can appear, e.g. in function type signatures
      
      * As part of this change, HsForAllTy is (a) simplified (no wildcards)
        and (b) split into HsForAllTy and HsQualTy.  The two contructors
        appear when and only when the correponding user-level construct
        appears.  Again see Note [HsType binders].
      
        HsExplicitFlag disappears altogether.
      
      * Other simplifications
      
           - ExprWithTySig no longer needs an ExprWithTySigOut variant
      
           - TypeSig no longer needs a PostRn name [name] field
             for wildcards
      
           - PatSynSig records a LHsSigType rather than the decomposed
             pieces
      
           - The mysterious 'GenericSig' is now 'ClassOpSig'
      
      * Renamed LHsTyVarBndrs to LHsQTyVars
      
      * There are some uninteresting knock-on changes in Haddock,
        because of the HsSyn changes
      
      I also did a bunch of loosely-related changes:
      
      * We already had type synonyms CoercionN/CoercionR for nominal and
        representational coercions.  I've added similar treatment for
      
            TcCoercionN/TcCoercionR
      
            mkWpCastN/mkWpCastN
      
        All just type synonyms but jolly useful.
      
      * I record-ised ForeignImport and ForeignExport
      
      * I improved the (poor) fix to Trac #10896, by making
        TcTyClsDecls.checkValidTyCl recover from errors, but adding a
        harmless, abstract TyCon to the envt if so.
      
      * I did some significant refactoring in RnEnv.lookupSubBndrOcc,
        for reasons that I have (embarrassingly) now totally forgotten.
        It had to do with something to do with import and export
      
      Updates haddock submodule.

      Implement warnings for Semigroups as parent of Monoid · 290def72

      This patch is similar to the AMP patch (#8004), which offered two
      functions:
      
        1. Warn when an instance of a class has been given, but the type does
           not have a certain superclass instance
        2. Warn when top-level definitions conflict with future Prelude names
      
      These warnings are issued as part of the new `-Wcompat` warning group.

      ApiAnnotations: Make all RdrName occurences Located · 3df9563e
      Alan Zimmerman authored
      At the moment the API Annotations can only be used on the ParsedSource,
      as there are changes made to the RenamedSource that prevent it from
      being used to round trip source code.
      
      It is possible to build a map from every Located Name in the
      RenamedSource from its location to the Name, which can then be used when
      resolved names are required when changing the ParsedSource.
      
      However, there are instances where the identifier is not located,
      specifically
      
        (GHC.VarPat name)

      Implement DuplicateRecordFields · b1884b0e
      Adam Gundry authored
      This implements DuplicateRecordFields, the first part of the
      OverloadedRecordFields extension, as described at
      https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Records/OverloadedRecordFields/DuplicateRecordFields
      
      This includes fairly wide-ranging changes in order to allow multiple
      records within the same module to use the same field names.  Note that
      it does *not* allow record selector functions to be used if they are
      ambiguous, and it does not have any form of type-based disambiguation
      for selectors (but it does for updates). Subsequent parts will make
      overloading selectors possible using orthogonal extensions, as
      described on the wiki pages.  This part touches quite a lot of the
      codebase, and requires changes to several GHC API datatypes in order
      to distinguish between field labels (which may be overloaded) and
      selector function names (which are always unique).
      
      The Haddock submodule has been adapted to compile with the GHC API
      changes, but it will need further work to properly support modules
      that use the DuplicateRecordFields extension.
      
      Test Plan: New tests added in testsuite/tests/overloadedrecflds; these
      will be extended once the other parts are implemented.
