I would say that you are almost at a working implementation with your remark that append/3 can be used for splitting lists. This is indeed what append/3 in the instantiation (-,-,+) does. The only added requirement that seems to occur in your question is to exclude cases in which either...

Your example is morally on the right track, but there are a few mistakes in it. The most evident is that you can not pattern match on fromList ... since fromList is not a constructor. The actual constructors are not exported by the Data.Map module so we can not pattern...

What you want is really to be able to construct a: std::function<T(FwdIter<T>, FwdIter<T>)> where FwdIter<T> is some type-erased class that satsifes the ForwardIterator concept and is dereferenced to a T. For that, check out the Boost.TypeErasure library, where we can do: #include <boost/type_erasure/any.hpp> #include <boost/type_erasure/operators.hpp> #include <boost/mpl/vector.hpp> using namespace boost::type_erasure;...

Because of the issue in this answer, you can't write a true wrapper functor for max because you can't make any of the types const T&. The best you can do is: template <typename T> struct Max : std::binary_function<T, T, T> { T operator()(T a, T b) const { return...

You can't cause Trampoline represents a computational process. Functor gives you a map function, which can only transform you final value, but to spawn a new computation is a job of a Monads, which in some way abstracts over the computation process, with a flatMap operation (although i definetly prefer...

The type of x is f (g a). For example, x might be a list of trees of integers: [Tree Int] (which can also be written as [] (Tree Int) so that it matches f (g x) more closely). As an example, consider function succ :: Int -> Int which...

Your second Functor instance also doesn't make any sense. The biggest reason why Set can't be a Functor in Haskell is fmap can't have constraints. Inventing different notions of equality as StrongEq doesn't change the fact that you can't write those constraints on fmap in your Set instance. fmap in...

Your definition of Merger with the constraint is perfectly correct, which is why that part compiles without error. As you said, the only part that doesn't compile is module Combiner = Merger (IntInc) (IntDec). This is because, as far as OCaml knows, the constraint IntInt.t = IntDec.t is not met....

Yes, this is possible with scalaz.Functor: scala> import scalaz.Functor import scalaz.Functor scala> import scalaz.std.list._ import scalaz.std.list._ scala> import scalaz.std.option._ import scalaz.std.option._ scala> Functor[List].compose[Option].map(List(some(0), some(1)))(_ + 1) res1: List[Option[Int]] = List(Some(1), Some(2)) However, this is longer than to simply call map with a nested map. If you often map nested structures,...

A lambda is a functor - just defined with a shorter syntax. The problem is that this syntax is limited. It doesn't always allow you to solve a problem in the most efficient and flexible way - or at all. Until C++14, the operator() couldn't even be a template. Furthermore,...

You should use the return type of your operator () for any_type and the argument types for another_type. Then at least it fits. But really, std::function is not meant to be inherited from, and doing so is probably a bad idea....

The "neat alternative presentation" for Applicative is based on the following two equivalencies pure a = fmap (const a) unit unit = pure () ff <*> fa = fmap (\(f,a) -> f a) $ ff ** fa fa ** fb = pure (,) <*> fa <*> fb The trick to...

haskell,functional-programming,functor

Ignore the Functor instance for ((->) r); it is irrelevant. Only two tings matter here: The type of (.), namely (.) :: (b -> c) -> (a -> b) -> a -> c , and the fact that function application is left associative. The latter means that (.) (.) (.)...

find_if returns the iterator pointing to the first value which meets the given condition. It stops there. You can put this in a loop to find all such elements, until it returns the end iterator. The following line does the exact opposite of what you meant: while(myVec.empty()!=false) // while...

This functor takes in a function pointer and then flips the sign on that method's return value. return –comp(str1, str2); If used with sorting like you said, it would invert the order of what was being sorted, given by the original function pointer....

scala,functional-programming,functor,free-monad

Hopefully I can answer your question: Do Free monads compose? No. For the same reasons as "normal" monads don't. To write monadic bind we need to know something about the underlying monad, or about the underlying functor in a free monad case. Hopefully the Haskell syntax doesn't scare you too...

There are multiple overloads of std::string::append : you need to tell the compiler which one you want, use a static_cast for this : #include <iostream> #include <string> #include <functional> int main(int argc, char **argv) { std::string test = "fdsa"; auto fn = std::bind(static_cast<std::string&(std::string::*)(const std::string&)>(&std::string::append), std::ref(test), std::string("test")); fn(); std::cout << test...

Like many equations in Haskell-applied category theory, F ∘ IdB ≡ IdA ∘ F ≡ F should really just be read as equivalences. FComp Id Maybe Int is very much not the same thing as FComp Maybe Id Int to the type checker; however you can easily write idFunctorIso ::...

Try using list comprehensions. That way you won't have to load the list.append function into memory and it can boost your script, for not having to do a lot of appends, so check this article for a comparison. The code using list comprehensions can be written this way: def FindOccurences(data,...

c++,multithreading,interface,functor

std::thread's constructor can take a member function pointer as the first argument, and will automatically dereference and call the member function pointer on the second argument. Therefore, you can write: std::thread *t1 = new std::thread (&Base::operator(), pBase); std::thread *t2 = new std::thread (&OtherBase::operator(), pOBase); This is probably simpler than using...

For that specific line, you have a wrong semi colon. Fix : interface FunctionWithState { state: number; } var inc: FunctionWithState = { state: 0, apply: () => this.state++ // right syntax }; However I suspect you are using ()=> wrong. You want it to refer to inc and not...

It says you need to add the constraint to prop_id_functor_law, so it'd be prop_id_functor_law :: Eq a => Cons a -> Bool. The deriving part just means it derives the instance instance Eq a => Eq (Cons a) where Empty == Empty = True Cons a1 x1 == Cons a2...

The issue is that Haskell's Functor only represents a certain kind of functor: functors from the category of Haskell types and functions (Hask) to itself. Functor maps types to types (the objects of Hask) and functions to functions (the morphisms of Hask). For instance, the Maybe Functor maps any given...

In general, function objects contain additional context information besides the function to be called.

You probably want this: {-# LANGUAGE DeriveFunctor #-} data T1 a = T1 a deriving Functor data T2 a = T2 a deriving Functor As to why there's no default implementation for functor: your proposal only works if f is the identity functor (up to isomorphism). That is, it works...

Yes, you can deduce the return type of the callable type F using function traits.

Your Server functor does multiple arguments via currying. That does not work in plain SML, because it does not have higher-order functors (which SML/NJ supports as a non-standard extension).

The operator module has operator.attrgetter() and operator.itemgetter() that do just that: from operator import attrgetter, itemgetter sorted(some_dict.items(), key=itemgetter(1)) sorted(list_of_dicts, key=itemgetter('name')) map(attrgetter('name'), rows) These functions also take more than one argument, at which point they'll return a tuple containing the value for each argument: # sorting on value first, then on...

An indexed functor is, to use spacesuitburritoesque wording, "a container that also contains a mapping". I.e. a value f j k a will "contain" some sort of morphism(s) j -> k (not necessarily functions, can be more general arrows) and also values of type a. For those values, the container...
