This module is an internal GHC module. It declares the constants used in the implementation of type-level natural numbers. The programmer interface for working with type-level naturals should be defined in a separate library.

Kinds
Linking type and value level
This class gives the integer associated with a type-level natural. There are instances of the class for every concrete literal: 0, 1, 2, etc.
Since: 4.7.0.0
natSing
class KnownSymbol n Source
This class gives the string associated with a type-level symbol. There are instances of the class for every concrete literal: "hello", etc.
Since: 4.7.0.0
symbolSing
symbolVal :: forall n proxy. KnownSymbol n => proxy n -> String Source
Since: 4.7.0.0
symbolVal' :: forall n. KnownSymbol n => Proxy# n -> String Source
Since: 4.8.0.0
This type represents unknown type-level natural numbers.
data SomeSymbol Source
This type represents unknown type-level symbols.
forall n . KnownSymbol n => SomeSymbol (Proxy n) | Since: 4.7.0.0 |
someNatVal :: Integer -> Maybe SomeNat Source
Convert an integer into an unknown type-level natural.
Since: 4.7.0.0
someSymbolVal :: String -> SomeSymbol Source
Convert a string into an unknown type-level symbol.
Since: 4.7.0.0
sameNat :: (KnownNat a, KnownNat b) => Proxy a -> Proxy b -> Maybe (a :~: b) Source
We either get evidence that this function was instantiated with the
same type-level numbers, or Nothing
.
Since: 4.7.0.0
sameSymbol :: (KnownSymbol a, KnownSymbol b) => Proxy a -> Proxy b -> Maybe (a :~: b) Source
We either get evidence that this function was instantiated with the
same type-level symbols, or Nothing
.
Since: 4.7.0.0
Functions on type literals
type family m <=? n :: Bool infix 4 Source
Comparison of type-level naturals, as a function.
NOTE: The functionality for this function should be subsumed
by CmpNat
, so this might go away in the future.
Please let us know, if you encounter discrepancies between the two.
