      Print explicit foralls in type family eqns when appropriate · f932b1aa
      Ryan Scott authored
      Summary:
      When `-fprint-explicit-foralls` is enabled, type family
      equations are either printed without an explict `forall` entirely,
      or with a bizarre square bracket syntax (in the case of closed type
      families). I find neither satisfying, so in this patch, I introduce
      support for printing explicit `forall`s in open type-family, closed
      type-family, and data-family equations when appropriate. (By "when
      appropriate", I refer to the conditions laid out in
      `Note [When to print foralls]` in `IfaceType`.)
      
      One tricky point in the implementation is that I had to pick a
      visibility for each type variable in a `CoAxiom`/`FamInst` in order
      to be able to pass it to `pprUserIfaceForAll` //et al.// Because
      the type variables in a type family instance equation can't be
      instantiated by the programmer anyway, the choice only really matters
      for pretty-printing purposes, so I simply went with good ol'
      trustworthy `Specified`. (This design choice is documented in
      `Note [Printing foralls in type family instances]` in `IfaceType`.)

      Overhaul -fprint-explicit-kinds to use VKA · f5d20838
      Ryan Scott authored
      This patch changes the behavior of `-fprint-explicit-kinds`
      so that it displays kind argument using visible kind application.
      In other words, the flag now:
      
      1. Prints instantiations of specified variables with `@(...)`.
      2. Prints instantiations of inferred variables with `@{...}`.
      
      In addition, this patch removes the `Use -fprint-explicit-kinds to
      see the kind arguments` error message that often arises when a type
      mismatch occurs due to different kinds. Instead, whenever there is a
      kind mismatch, we now enable the `-fprint-explicit-kinds` flag
      locally to help cue to the programmer where the error lies.
      (See `Note [Kind arguments in error messages]` in `TcErrors`.)
      As a result, these funny `@{...}` things can now appear to the user
      even without turning on the `-fprint-explicit-kinds` flag explicitly,
      so I took the liberty of documenting them in the users' guide.

      Fix embarrassing, egregious bug in roles of (->) · 255d2e32
      Richard Eisenberg authored
      Previously, I had inexplicably decided that (->)'s roles
      were all Representational. But, of course, its first two
      parameters are *dependent* RuntimeReps. All dependent parameters
      have a Nominal role, because all roles in kinds are Nominal.
      
      Fix is easy, but I have no idea how the world hasn't come
      crashing down before now.
      
      This was found while investigating #15801, which requires
      visible type application in types to observe. Hence, the test
      case will come with the main patch for #12045.

      Coercion Quantification · ea5ade34
      Ningning Xie authored
      This patch corresponds to #15497.
      
      According to https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/DependentHaskell/Phase2,
       we would like to have coercion quantifications back. This will
      allow us to migrate (~#) to be homogeneous, instead of its current
      heterogeneous definition. This patch is (lots of) plumbing only. There
      should be no user-visible effects.
      
      An overview of changes:
      
      - Both `ForAllTy` and `ForAllCo` can quantify over coercion variables,
      but only in *Core*. All relevant functions are updated accordingly.
      - Small changes that should be irrelevant to the main task:
          1. removed dead code `mkTransAppCo` in Coercion
          2. removed out-dated Note Computing a coercion kind and
             roles in Coercion
          3. Added `Eq4` in Note Respecting definitional equality in
             TyCoRep, and updated `mkCastTy` accordingly.
          4. Various updates and corrections of notes and typos.
      - Haddock submodule needs to be changed too.

      Use IfaceAppArgs to store an IfaceAppTy's arguments · 1c353623
      Ryan Scott authored
      Summary:
      Currently, an `IfaceAppTy` has no way to tell whether its
      argument is visible or not, so it simply treats all arguments as
      visible, leading to #15330. We already have a solution for this
      problem in the form of the `IfaceTcArgs` data structure, used by
      `IfaceTyConApp` to represent the arguments to a type constructor.
      Therefore, it makes sense to reuse this machinery for `IfaceAppTy`,
      so this patch does just that.
      
      This patch:
      
      1. Renames `IfaceTcArgs` to `IfaceAppArgs` to reflect its more
         general purpose.
      2. Changes the second field of `IfaceAppTy` from `IfaceType` to
         `IfaceAppArgs`, and propagates the necessary changes through. In
         particular, pretty-printing an `IfaceAppTy` now goes through the
         `IfaceAppArgs` pretty-printer, which correctly displays arguments
         as visible or not for free, fixing #15330.
      3. Changes `toIfaceTypeX` and related functions so that when
         converting an `AppTy` to an `IfaceAppTy`, it flattens as many
         argument `AppTy`s as possible, and then converts those arguments
         into an `IfaceAppArgs` list, using the kind of the function
         `Type` as a guide. (Doing so minimizes the number of times we need
         to call `typeKind`, which is more expensive that finding the kind
         of a `TyCon`.)

      Refactor coercion rule · 55a3f855
      Ningning Xie authored
      Summary:
      The patch is an attempt on #15192.
      
      It defines a new coercion rule
      
      ```
       | GRefl Role Type MCoercion
      ```
      
      which correspondes to the typing rule
      
      ```
           t1 : k1
        ------------------------------------
        GRefl r t1 MRefl: t1 ~r t1
      
           t1 : k1       co :: k1 ~ k2
        ------------------------------------
        GRefl r t1 (MCo co) : t1 ~r t1 |> co
      ```
      
      MCoercion wraps a coercion, which might be reflexive (MRefl)
      or not (MCo co). To know more about MCoercion see #14975.
      
      We keep Refl ty as a special case for nominal reflexive coercions,
      naemly, Refl ty :: ty ~n ty.
      
      This commit is meant to be a general performance improvement,
      but there are a few regressions. See #15192, comment:13 for
      more information.

      Fix #14875 by introducing PprPrec, and using it · 21e1a00c
      Ryan Scott authored
      Trying to determine when to insert parentheses during TH
      conversion is a bit of a mess. There is an assortment of functions
      that try to detect this, such as:
      
      * `hsExprNeedsParens`
      * `isCompoundHsType`
      * `hsPatNeedsParens`
      * `isCompoundPat`
      * etc.
      
      To make things worse, each of them have slightly different semantics.
      Plus, they don't work well in the presence of explicit type
      signatures, as #14875 demonstrates.
      
      All of these problems can be alleviated with the use of an explicit
      precedence argument (much like what `showsPrec` currently does). To
      accomplish this, I introduce a new `PprPrec` data type, and define
      standard predences for things like function application, infix
      operators, function arrows, and explicit type signatures (that last
      one is new). I then added `PprPrec` arguments to the various
      `-NeedsParens` functions, and use them to make smarter decisions
      about when things need to be parenthesized.
      
      A nice side effect is that functions like `isCompoundHsType` are
      now completely unneeded, since they're simply aliases for
      `hsTypeNeedsParens appPrec`. As a result, I did a bit of refactoring
      to remove these sorts of functions. I also did a pass over various
      utility functions in GHC for constructing AST forms and used more
      appropriate precedences where convenient.
      
      Along the way, I also ripped out the existing `TyPrec`
      data type (which was tailor-made for pretty-printing `Type`s) and
      replaced it with `PprPrec` for consistency.

      Refactor coercion holes · a492af06
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      In fixing Trac #14584 I found that it would be /much/ more
      convenient if a "hole" in a coercion (much like a unification
      variable in a type) acutally had a CoVar associated with it
      rather than just a Unique.  Then I can ask what the free variables
      of a coercion is, and get a set of CoVars including those
      as-yet-un-filled in holes.
      
      Once that is done, it makes no sense to stuff coercion holes
      inside UnivCo.  They were there before so we could know the
      kind and role of a "hole" coercion, but once there is a CoVar
      we can get that info from the CoVar.  So I removed HoleProv
      from UnivCoProvenance and added HoleCo to Coercion.
      
      In summary:
      
      * Add HoleCo to Coercion and remove HoleProv from UnivCoProvanance
      
      * Similarly in IfaceCoercion
      
      * Make CoercionHole have a CoVar in it, not a Unique
      
      * Make tyCoVarsOfCo return the free coercion-hole variables
        as well as the ordinary free CoVars.  Similarly, remember
        to zonk the CoVar in a CoercionHole
      
      We could go further, and remove CoercionHole as a distinct type
      altogther, just collapsing it into HoleCo.  But I have not done
      that yet.

      Track the order of user-written tyvars in DataCon · ef26182e
      Ryan Scott authored
      After typechecking a data constructor's type signature, its type
      variables are partitioned into two distinct groups: the universally
      quantified type variables and the existentially quantified type
      variables. Then, when prompted for the type of the data constructor,
      GHC gives this:
      
      ```lang=haskell
      MkT :: forall <univs> <exis>. (...)
      ```
      
      For H98-style datatypes, this is a fine thing to do. But for GADTs,
      this can sometimes produce undesired results with respect to
      `TypeApplications`. For instance, consider this datatype:
      
      ```lang=haskell
      data T a where
        MkT :: forall b a. b -> T a
      ```
      
      Here, the user clearly intended to have `b` be available for visible
      type application before `a`. That is, the user would expect
      `MkT @Int @Char` to be of type `Int -> T Char`, //not//
      `Char -> T Int`. But alas, up until now that was not how GHC
      operated—regardless of the order in which the user actually wrote
      the tyvars, GHC would give `MkT` the type:
      
      ```lang=haskell
      MkT :: forall a b. b -> T a
      ```
      
      Since `a` is universal and `b` is existential. This makes predicting
      what order to use for `TypeApplications` quite annoying, as
      demonstrated in #11721 and #13848.
      
      This patch cures the problem by tracking more carefully the order in
      which a user writes type variables in data constructor type
      signatures, either explicitly (with a `forall`) or implicitly
      (without a `forall`, in which case the order is inferred). This is
      accomplished by adding a new field `dcUserTyVars` to `DataCon`, which
      is a subset of `dcUnivTyVars` and `dcExTyVars` that is permuted to
      the order in which the user wrote them. For more details, refer to
      `Note [DataCon user type variables]` in `DataCon.hs`.
      
      An interesting consequence of this design is that more data
      constructors require wrappers. This is because the workers always
      expect the first arguments to be the universal tyvars followed by the
      existential tyvars, so when the user writes the tyvars in a different
      order, a wrapper type is needed to swizzle the tyvars around to match
      the order that the worker expects. For more details, refer to
      `Note [Data con wrappers and GADT syntax]` in `MkId.hs`.

      Fix #14167 by using isGadtSyntaxTyCon in more places · 8e4229ab
      Ryan Scott authored
      Summary:
      Two places in GHC effectively attempt to //guess// whether a data type
      was declared using GADT syntax:
      
      1. When reifying a data type in Template Haskell
      2. When pretty-printing a data type (e.g., via `:info` in GHCi)
      
      But there's no need for heuristics here, since we have a 100% accurate way to
      determine whether a data type was declared using GADT syntax: the
      `isGadtSyntaxTyCon` function! By simply using that as the metric, we obtain
      far more accurate TH reification and pretty-printing results.
      
      This is technically a breaking change, since Template Haskell reification will
      now reify some data type constructors as `(Rec)GadtC` that it didn't before,
      and some data type constructors that were previously reified as `(Rec)GadtC`
      will no longer be reified as such. But it's a very understandable breaking
      change, since the previous behavior was simply incorrect.

      Add debugPprType · 805b29bb
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      We pretty-print a type by converting it to an IfaceType and
      pretty-printing that.  But
       (a) that's a bit indirect, and
       (b) delibrately loses information about (e.g.) the kind
            on the /occurrences/ of a type variable
      
      So this patch implements debugPprType, which pretty prints
      the type directly, with no fancy formatting.  It's just used
      for debugging.
      
      I took the opportunity to refactor the debug-pretty-printing
      machinery a little.  In particular, define these functions
      and use them:
      
        ifPprDeubug :: SDoc -> SDOc -> SDoc
          -- Says what to do with and without -dppr-debug
        whenPprDebug :: SDoc -> SDoc
          -- Says what to do with  -dppr-debug; without is empty
        getPprDebug :: (Bool -> SDoc) -> SDoc
      
      getPprDebug used to be called sdocPprDebugWith
      whenPprDebug used to be called ifPprDebug
      
      So a lot of files get touched in a very mechanical way

      Properly represent abstract classes in Class and IfaceDecl · fb5cd9d6
      Edward Z. Yang authored
      
      
      Summary:
      Previously, abstract classes looked very much like normal
      classes, except that they happened to have no methods,
      superclasses or ATs, and they came from boot files.  This
      patch gives abstract classes a proper representation in
      Class and IfaceDecl, by moving the things which are never
      defined for abstract classes into ClassBody/IfaceClassBody.
      
      Because Class is abstract, this change had ~no disruption
      to any of the code in GHC; if you ask about the methods of
      an abstract class, we'll just give you an empty list.
      
      This also fixes a bug where abstract type classes were incorrectly
      treated as representationally injective (they're not!)
      
      Fixes #13347, and a TODO in the code.

      Improve pretty-printing of types · 871b63e4
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      When doing debug-printing it's really important that the free vars
      of a type are printed with their uniques.  The IfaceTcTyVar thing
      was a stab in that direction, but it only worked for TcTyVars, not
      TyVars.
      
      This patch does it properly, by keeping track of the free vars of the
      type when translating Type -> IfaceType, and passing that down through
      toIfaceTypeX.  Then when we find a variable, look in that set, and
      translate it to IfaceFreeTyVar if so.  (I renamed IfaceTcTyVar to
      IfaceFreeTyVar.)
      
      Fiddly but not difficult.

      Record full FieldLabel in ifConFields. · 9d17028f
      Edward Z. Yang authored
      
      
      Summary:
      The previous implementation tried to be "efficient" by
      storing field names once in IfaceConDecls, and only just
      enough information for us to reconstruct the FieldLabel.
      But this came at a bit of code complexity cost.
      
      This patch undos the optimization, instead storing a full
      FieldLabel at each data constructor.  Consequently, this fixes
      bugs #12699 and #13250.

      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.

      COMPLETE pragmas for enhanced pattern exhaustiveness checking · 1a3f1eeb
      Matthew Pickering authored
      This patch adds a new pragma so that users can specify `COMPLETE` sets of
      `ConLike`s in order to sate the pattern match checker.
      
      A function which matches on all the patterns in a complete grouping
      will not cause the exhaustiveness checker to emit warnings.
      
      ```
      pattern P :: ()
      pattern P = ()
      
      {-# COMPLETE P #-}
      
      foo P = ()
      ```
      
      This example would previously have caused the checker to warn that
      all cases were not matched even though matching on `P` is sufficient to
      make `foo` covering. With the addition of the pragma, the compiler
      will recognise that matching on `P` alone is enough and not emit
      any warnings.

      Show explicit quantifiers in conflicting definitions error · 33140f41
      Phil de Joux authored
      This fixes #12441, where definitions in a Haskell module and its boot
      file which differed only in their quantifiers produced a confusing error
      message. Here we teach GHC to always show quantifiers for these errors.

      Update levity polymorphism · e7985ed2
      Richard Eisenberg authored
      This commit implements the proposal in
      https://github.com/ghc-proposals/ghc-proposals/pull/29 and
      https://github.com/ghc-proposals/ghc-proposals/pull/35.
      
      Here are some of the pieces of that proposal:
      
      * Some of RuntimeRep's constructors have been shortened.
      
      * TupleRep and SumRep are now parameterized over a list of RuntimeReps.
      * This
      means that two types with the same kind surely have the same
      representation.
      Previously, all unboxed tuples had the same kind, and thus the fact
      above was
      false.
      
      * RepType.typePrimRep and friends now return a *list* of PrimReps. These
      functions can now work successfully on unboxed tuples. This change is
      necessary because we allow abstraction over unboxed tuple types and so
      cannot
      always handle unboxed tuples specially as we did before.
      
      * We sometimes have to create an Id from a PrimRep. I thus split PtrRep
      * into
      LiftedRep and UnliftedRep, so that the created Ids have the right
      strictness.
      
      * The RepType.RepType type was removed, as it didn't seem to help with
      * much.
      
      * The RepType.repType function is also removed, in favor of typePrimRep.
      
      * I have waffled a good deal on whether or not to keep VoidRep in
      TyCon.PrimRep. In the end, I decided to keep it there. PrimRep is *not*
      represented in RuntimeRep, and typePrimRep will never return a list
      including
      VoidRep. But it's handy to have in, e.g., ByteCodeGen and friends. I can
      imagine another design choice where we have a PrimRepV type that is
      PrimRep
      with an extra constructor. That seemed to be a heavier design, though,
      and I'm
      not sure what the benefit would be.
      
      * The last, unused vestiges of # (unliftedTypeKind) have been removed.
      
      * There were several pretty-printing bugs that this change exposed;
      * these are fixed.
      
      * We previously checked for levity polymorphism in the types of binders.
      * But we
      also must exclude levity polymorphism in function arguments. This is
      hard to check
      for, requiring a good deal of care in the desugarer. See Note [Levity
      polymorphism
      checking] in DsMonad.
      
      * In order to efficiently check for levity polymorphism in functions, it
      * was necessary
      to add a new bit of IdInfo. See Note [Levity info] in IdInfo.
      
      * It is now safe for unlifted types to be unsaturated in Core. Core Lint
      * is updated
      accordingly.
      
      * We can only know strictness after zonking, so several checks around
      * strictness
      in the type-checker (checkStrictBinds, the check for unlifted variables
      under a ~
      pattern) have been moved to the desugarer.
      
      * Along the way, I improved the treatment of unlifted vs. banged
      * bindings. See
      Note [Strict binds checks] in DsBinds and #13075.
      
      * Now that we print type-checked source, we must be careful to print
      * ConLikes correctly.
      This is facilitated by a new HsConLikeOut constructor to HsExpr.
      Particularly troublesome
      are unlifted pattern synonyms that get an extra void# argument.
      
      * Includes a submodule update for haddock, getting rid of #.
      
      * New testcases:
        typecheck/should_fail/StrictBinds
        typecheck/should_fail/T12973
        typecheck/should_run/StrictPats
        typecheck/should_run/T12809
        typecheck/should_fail/T13105
        patsyn/should_fail/UnliftedPSBind
        typecheck/should_fail/LevPolyBounded
        typecheck/should_compile/T12987
        typecheck/should_compile/T11736
      
      * Fixed tickets:
        #12809
        #12973
        #11736
        #13075
        #12987
      
      * This also adds a test case for #13105. This test case is
      * "compile_fail" and
      succeeds, because I want the testsuite to monitor the error message.
      When #13105 is fixed, the test case will compile cleanly.

          Kill Type pretty-printer
      
      we switched to pretty-printing a type by converting it to an
      IfaceType and pretty printing that.  Very good.
      
      This patch fixes two things
      
      * The new story is terrible for debug-printing with -ddump-tc-trace,
        because all the extra info in an open type was discarded ty the
        conversion to IfaceType.
      
        This patch adds IfaceTcTyVar to IfaceType, to carry a TcTyVar in
        debug situations.  Quite an easy change, happily.  These things
        never show up in interface files.
      
      * Now that we are going via IfaceType, it's essential to tidy before
        converting; otherwise
           forall k_23 k_34. blah
        is printed as
           forall k k. blah
        which is very unhelpful.  Again this only shows up in debug
        printing.

      Kill Type pretty-printer · 6c0f10fa
      Ben Gamari authored
      Here we consolidate the pretty-printing logic for types in IfaceType. We
      need IfaceType regardless and the printer for Type can be implemented in
      terms of that for IfaceType. See #11660.
      
      Note that this is very much a work-in-progress. Namely I still have yet
      to ponder how to ease the hs-boot file situation, still need to rip out
      more dead code, need to move some of the special cases for, e.g., `*` to
      the IfaceType printer, and need to get it to validate. That being said,
      it comes close to validating as-is.
