More hacking on monad-comp

Lots of refactoring. In particular I have now combined
TansformStmt and GroupStmt into a single constructor TransStmt.
This gives lots of useful code sharing.

module Check ( check , ExhaustivePat ) where
#include "HsVersions.h"
import HsSyn

import DsUtils
import MatchLit
import Id

This module performs checks about if one list of equations are:
\begin{itemize}
\item Overlapped
\item Non exhaustive
\end{itemize}
To discover that we go through the list of equations in a tree-like fashion.
If you like theory, a similar algorithm is described in:
\begin{quotation}
{\em Two Techniques for Compiling Lazy Pattern Matching},
Luc Maranguet,
INRIA Rocquencourt (RR-2385, 1994)
\end{quotation}
The algorithm is based on the first technique, but there are some differences:
\begin{itemize}
\item We don't generate code
\item We have constructors and literals (not only literals as in the
article)
\item We don't use directions, we must select the columns from
left-to-right
\end{itemize}
(By the way the second technique is really similar to the one used in
@Match.lhs@ to generate code)
This function takes the equations of a pattern and returns:
\begin{itemize}
\item The patterns that are not recognized
\item The equations that are not overlapped
\end{itemize}
It simplify the patterns and then call @check'@ (the same semantics), and it
needs to reconstruct the patterns again ....
The problem appear with things like:
\begin{verbatim}
f [x,y] = ....
f (x:xs) = .....
\end{verbatim}
We want to put the two patterns with the same syntax, (prefix form) and
then all the constructors are equal:
\begin{verbatim}
f (: x (: y [])) = ....
f (: x xs) = .....
\end{verbatim}
(more about that in @tidy_eqns@)
We would prefer to have a @WarningPat@ of type @String@, but Strings and the
Pretty Printer are not friends.
We use @InPat@ in @WarningPat@ instead of @OutPat@
because we need to print the
warning messages in the same way they are introduced, i.e. if the user
wrote:
\begin{verbatim}
f [x,y] = ..
\end{verbatim}
He don't want a warning message written:
\begin{verbatim}
f (: x (: y [])) ........
\end{verbatim}
Then we need to use InPats.

\begin{code}
type WarningPat = InPat Name
type ExhaustivePat = ([WarningPat], [(Name, [HsLit])])
type EqnNo = Int
type EqnSet = UniqSet EqnNo
check :: [EquationInfo] -> ([ExhaustivePat], [EquationInfo])
-- Second result is the shadowed equations
-- if there are view patterns, just give up - don't know what the function is
check qs = (untidy_warns, shadowed_eqns)
where
(warns, used_nos) = check' ([1..] `zip` map tidy_eqn qs)
untidy_warns = map untidy_exhaustive warns
shadowed_eqns = [eqn | (eqn,i) <- qs `zip` [1..],
not (i `elementOfUniqSet` used_nos)]
untidy_exhaustive :: ExhaustivePat -> ExhaustivePat
untidy_exhaustive ([pat], messages) =
([untidy_no_pars pat], map untidy_message messages)
untidy_exhaustive (pats, messages) =
(map untidy_pars pats, map untidy_message messages)
untidy_message :: (Name, [HsLit]) -> (Name, [HsLit])
untidy_message (string, lits) = (string, map untidy_lit lits)
\end{code}
The function @untidy@ does the reverse work of the @tidy_pat@ funcion.
\begin{code}
type NeedPars = Bool
untidy_no_pars :: WarningPat -> WarningPat
untidy_no_pars p = untidy False p
untidy_pars :: WarningPat -> WarningPat
untidy_pars p = untidy True p
untidy :: NeedPars -> WarningPat -> WarningPat
untidy b (L loc p) = L loc (untidy' b p)
where
untidy' _ p@(WildPat _) = p
untidy' _ p@(VarPat _) = p
untidy' _ (LitPat lit) = LitPat (untidy_lit lit)
untidy' _ p@(ConPatIn _ (PrefixCon [])) = p
untidy' b (ConPatIn name ps) = pars b (L loc (ConPatIn name (untidy_con ps)))
untidy' _ (ListPat pats ty) = ListPat (map untidy_no_pars pats) ty
untidy' _ (TuplePat pats box ty) = TuplePat (map untidy_no_pars pats) box ty
untidy' _ (PArrPat _ _) = panic "Check.untidy: Shouldn't get a parallel array here!"
untidy' _ (SigPatIn _ _) = panic "Check.untidy: SigPat"
untidy_con :: HsConPatDetails Name -> HsConPatDetails Name
untidy_con (PrefixCon pats) = PrefixCon (map untidy_pars pats)
untidy_con (InfixCon p1 p2) = InfixCon (untidy_pars p1) (untidy_pars p2)
untidy_con (RecCon (HsRecFields flds dd))
= RecCon (HsRecFields [ fld { hsRecFieldArg = untidy_pars (hsRecFieldArg fld) }
| fld <- flds ] dd)
pars :: NeedPars -> WarningPat -> Pat Name
pars True p = ParPat p
pars _ p = unLoc p
untidy_lit :: HsLit -> HsLit
untidy_lit (HsCharPrim c) = HsChar c
untidy_lit lit = lit
\end{code}
This equation is the same that check, the only difference is that the
boring work is done, that work needs to be done only once, this is
the reason top have two functions, check is the external interface,
@check'@ is called recursively.
There are several cases:
\begin{itemize}
\item There are no equations: Everything is OK.
\item There are only one equation, that can fail, and all the patterns are
variables. Then that equation is used and the same equation is
non-exhaustive.
\item All the patterns are variables, and the match can fail, there are
more equations then the results is the result of the rest of equations
and this equation is used also.
\item The general case, if all the patterns are variables (here the match
can't fail) then the result is that this equation is used and this
equation doesn't generate non-exhaustive cases.
\item In the general case, there can exist literals ,constructors or only
vars in the first column, we actuate in consequence.
\end{itemize}
\begin{code}
check' :: [(EqnNo, EquationInfo)]
-> ([ExhaustivePat], -- Pattern scheme that might not be matched at all
EqnSet) -- Eqns that are used (others are overlapped)
check' [] = ([([],[])],emptyUniqSet)
check' ((n, EqnInfo { eqn_pats = ps, eqn_rhs = MatchResult can_fail _ }) : rs)
| first_eqn_all_vars && case can_fail of { CantFail -> True; CanFail -> False }
= ([], unitUniqSet n) -- One eqn, which can't fail
| first_eqn_all_vars && null rs -- One eqn, but it can fail
= ([(takeList ps (repeat nlWildPat),[])], unitUniqSet n)
| first_eqn_all_vars -- Several eqns, first can fail
= (pats, addOneToUniqSet indexs n)
where
first_eqn_all_vars = all_vars ps
(pats,indexs) = check' rs
check' qs
| some_literals = split_by_literals qs
| some_constructors = split_by_constructor qs
| only_vars = first_column_only_vars qs
| otherwise = pprPanic "Check.check': Not implemented :-(" (ppr first_pats)
-- Shouldn't happen
where
-- Note: RecPats will have been simplified to ConPats
-- at this stage.
first_pats = ASSERT2( okGroup qs, pprGroup qs ) map firstPatN qs
some_constructors = any is_con first_pats
some_literals = any is_lit first_pats
only_vars = all is_var first_pats
\end{code}
Here begins the code to deal with literals, we need to split the matrix
in different matrix beginning by each literal and a last matrix with the
rest of values.
\begin{code}
split_by_literals :: [(EqnNo, EquationInfo)] -> ([ExhaustivePat], EqnSet)
split_by_literals qs = process_literals used_lits qs
where
used_lits = get_used_lits qs
\end{code}
@process_explicit_literals@ is a function that process each literal that appears
in the column of the matrix.
\begin{code}
process_explicit_literals :: [HsLit] -> [(EqnNo, EquationInfo)] -> ([ExhaustivePat],EqnSet)
process_explicit_literals lits qs = (concat pats, unionManyUniqSets indexs)
where
pats_indexs = map (\x -> construct_literal_matrix x qs) lits
(pats,indexs) = unzip pats_indexs
\end{code}
@process_literals@ calls @process_explicit_literals@ to deal with the literals
that appears in the matrix and deal also with the rest of the cases. It
must be one Variable to be complete.
\begin{code}
process_literals :: [HsLit] -> [(EqnNo, EquationInfo)] -> ([ExhaustivePat],EqnSet)
process_literals used_lits qs
| null default_eqns = ASSERT( not (null qs) ) ([make_row_vars used_lits (head qs)] ++ pats,indexs)
| otherwise = (pats_default,indexs_default)
where
(pats,indexs) = process_explicit_literals used_lits qs
default_eqns = ASSERT2( okGroup qs, pprGroup qs )
[remove_var q | q <- qs, is_var (firstPatN q)]
(pats',indexs') = check' default_eqns
pats_default = [(nlWildPat:ps,constraints) | (ps,constraints) <- (pats')] ++ pats
indexs_default = unionUniqSets indexs' indexs
\end{code}
Here we have selected the literal and we will select all the equations that
begins for that literal and create a new matrix.
\begin{code}
construct_literal_matrix :: HsLit -> [(EqnNo, EquationInfo)] -> ([ExhaustivePat],EqnSet)
construct_literal_matrix lit qs =
(map (\ (xs,ys) -> (new_lit:xs,ys)) pats,indexs)
where
(pats,indexs) = (check' (remove_first_column_lit lit qs))
new_lit = nlLitPat lit
remove_first_column_lit :: HsLit
-> [(EqnNo, EquationInfo)]
-> [(EqnNo, EquationInfo)]
remove_first_column_lit lit qs
= ASSERT2( okGroup qs, pprGroup qs )
[(n, shift_pat eqn) | q@(n,eqn) <- qs, is_var_lit lit (firstPatN q)]
where
shift_pat eqn@(EqnInfo { eqn_pats = _:ps}) = eqn { eqn_pats = ps }
shift_pat _ = panic "Check.shift_var: no patterns"
\end{code}
This function splits the equations @qs@ in groups that deal with the
same constructor.
\begin{code}
split_by_constructor :: [(EqnNo, EquationInfo)] -> ([ExhaustivePat], EqnSet)
split_by_constructor qs
| notNull unused_cons = need_default_case used_cons unused_cons qs
| otherwise = no_need_default_case used_cons qs
where
used_cons = get_used_cons qs
unused_cons = get_unused_cons used_cons
\end{code}
The first column of the patterns matrix only have vars, then there is
nothing to do.
\begin{code}
first_column_only_vars :: [(EqnNo, EquationInfo)] -> ([ExhaustivePat],EqnSet)
first_column_only_vars qs = (map (\ (xs,ys) -> (nlWildPat:xs,ys)) pats,indexs)
where
(pats, indexs) = check' (map remove_var qs)
\end{code}
This equation takes a matrix of patterns and split the equations by
constructor, using all the constructors that appears in the first column
of the pattern matching.
We can need a default clause or not ...., it depends if we used all the
constructors or not explicitly. The reasoning is similar to @process_literals@,
the difference is that here the default case is not always needed.
\begin{code}
no_need_default_case :: [Pat Id] -> [(EqnNo, EquationInfo)] -> ([ExhaustivePat],EqnSet)
no_need_default_case cons qs = (concat pats, unionManyUniqSets indexs)
where
pats_indexs = map (\x -> construct_matrix x qs) cons
(pats,indexs) = unzip pats_indexs
need_default_case :: [Pat Id] -> [DataCon] -> [(EqnNo, EquationInfo)] -> ([ExhaustivePat],EqnSet)
need_default_case used_cons unused_cons qs
| null default_eqns = (pats_default_no_eqns,indexs)
| otherwise = (pats_default,indexs_default)
where
(pats,indexs) = no_need_default_case used_cons qs
default_eqns = ASSERT2( okGroup qs, pprGroup qs )
[remove_var q | q <- qs, is_var (firstPatN q)]
(pats',indexs') = check' default_eqns
pats_default = [(make_whole_con c:ps,constraints) |
c <- unused_cons, (ps,constraints) <- pats'] ++ pats
new_wilds = ASSERT( not (null qs) ) make_row_vars_for_constructor (head qs)
pats_default_no_eqns = [(make_whole_con c:new_wilds,[]) | c <- unused_cons] ++ pats
indexs_default = unionUniqSets indexs' indexs
construct_matrix :: Pat Id -> [(EqnNo, EquationInfo)] -> ([ExhaustivePat],EqnSet)
construct_matrix con qs =
(map (make_con con) pats,indexs)
where
(pats,indexs) = (check' (remove_first_column con qs))
\end{code}
Here remove first column is more difficult that with literals due to the fact
that constructors can have arguments.
For instance, the matrix
\begin{verbatim}
(: x xs) y
z y
\end{verbatim}
is transformed in:
\begin{verbatim}
x xs y
_ _ y
\end{verbatim}
\begin{code}
remove_first_column :: Pat Id -- Constructor

The difference beteewn @make_con@ and @make_whole_con@ is that
@make_wole_con@ creates a new constructor with all their arguments, and
@make_con@ takes a list of argumntes, creates the contructor getting their
arguments from the list. See where \fbox{\ ???\ } are used for details.
We need to reconstruct the patterns (make the constructors infix and
similar) at the same time that we create the constructors.
You can tell tuple constructors using
\begin{verbatim}
Id.isTupleCon
\end{verbatim}
You can see if one constructor is infix with this clearer code :-))))))))))
\begin{verbatim}
Lex.isLexConSym (Name.occNameString (Name.getOccName con))
\end{verbatim}
Rather clumsy but it works. (Simon Peyton Jones)
We don't mind the @nilDataCon@ because it doesn't change the way to
print the messsage, we are searching only for things like: @[1,2,3]@,
not @x:xs@ ....
In @reconstruct_pat@ we want to ``undo'' the work
that we have done in @tidy_pat@.
In particular:
\begin{tabular}{lll}
@((,) x y)@ & returns to be & @(x, y)@
\\ @((:) x xs)@ & returns to be & @(x:xs)@
\\ @(x:(...:[])@ & returns to be & @[x,...]@
\end{tabular}
%
The difficult case is the third one becouse we need to follow all the
contructors until the @[]@ to know that we need to use the second case,
not the second. \fbox{\ ???\ }

Tidying equations
------------------------------------------------------------------------
tidy_eqn does more or less the same thing as @tidy@ in @Match.lhs@;
that is, it removes syntactic sugar, reducing the number of cases that
must be handled by the main checking algorithm. One difference is
that here we can do *all* the tidying at once (recursively), rather
than doing it incrementally.
\begin{code}
tidy_eqn :: EquationInfo -> EquationInfo
tidy_eqn eqn = eqn { eqn_pats = map tidy_pat (eqn_pats eqn),
eqn_rhs = tidy_rhs (eqn_rhs eqn) }
where
-- Horrible hack. The tidy_pat stuff converts "might-fail" patterns to
-- WildPats which of course loses the info that they can fail to match.
-- So we stick in a CanFail as if it were a guard.
tidy_rhs (MatchResult can_fail body)
| any might_fail_pat (eqn_pats eqn) = MatchResult CanFail body
| otherwise = MatchResult can_fail body
--------------
might_fail_pat :: Pat Id -> Bool
-- Returns True of patterns that might fail (i.e. fall through) in a way
-- that is not covered by the checking algorithm. Specifically:
-- NPlusKPat
-- ViewPat (if refutable)
-- First the two special cases
might_fail_pat (NPlusKPat {}) = True
might_fail_pat (ViewPat _ p _) = not (isIrrefutableHsPat p)
-- Now the recursive stuff
might_fail_pat (ParPat p) = might_fail_lpat p
might_fail_pat (AsPat _ p) = might_fail_lpat p
might_fail_pat (SigPatOut p _ ) = might_fail_lpat p

might_fail_pat (BangPat p) = might_fail_lpat p
might_fail_pat (ConPatOut { pat_args = ps }) = any might_fail_lpat (hsConPatArgs ps)
-- Finally the ones that are sure to succeed, or which are covered by the checking algorithm
