Haskell Either Monad

two major types of error handling employed: "pure" error handling and exceptions. When we speak of "pure" error handling, haskell error monad we are referring to algorithms that do not require anything from the IO monad. We can often implement error handling for them by simply using Haskell's expressive data type system to haskell either type our advantage. Haskell also has an exception system. Due to the complexities of lazy evaluation, exceptions in Haskell can be thrown anywhere, but only caught within the IO monad. In this chapter, we'll consider both. Error Handling with Data Types Let's begin our discussion of error handling with a very simple function. Let's say that we wish to perform division on a series of

Haskell Eithert

numbers. We have a constant numerator, but wish to vary the denominator. We might come up with a function like this: -- file: ch19/divby1.hs divBy :: Integral a => a -> [a] -> [a] divBy numerator = map (numerator `div`) Very simple, right? We can play around with this a bit in ghci: ghci> divBy 50 [1,2,5,8,10] [50,25,10,6,5] ghci> take 5 (divBy 100 [1..]) [100,50,33,25,20] This behaves as expected: 50 / 1 is 50, 50 / 2 is 25, and so forth. [38] This even worked with the infinite list [1..]. What happens if we sneak a 0 into our list somewhere? ghci> divBy 50 [1,2,0,8,10] [50,25,*** Exception: divide by zero Isn't that interesting? ghci started displaying the output, then stopped with an exception when it got to the zero. That's lazy evaluation at work—it calculated results as needed. As we will see later in this chapter, in the absence of an explicit exception handler, this exception will crash the program. That's obviously not desirable, so let's consider better ways we could indicate an error in this pure function. Use of Maybe One immediately-recognizable easy way to indicat

them; it only takes a minute: Sign up How to catch (and ignore) a call to the error function? up vote 15 down vote favorite 1 I'm surprised I couldn't find an answer to this anywhere. I'm writing a http://book.realworldhaskell.org/read/error-handling.html roguelike and I'm using the ncurses library from hackage, which is a pretty good wrapper around the ncurses library. Now ncurses has this quirk where if you try to write the bottom right character, it does so, then it tries to move the cursor to the next character, then it fails because there's nowhere to move it to. It returns an error value that you can only ignore. My problem is that the haskell ncurses library writer dutifully checks http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4243117/how-to-catch-and-ignore-a-call-to-the-error-function for any errors on all calls, and when there is one, he calls: error "drawText: etc etc.". In other languages, like c or python, to get around this you are forced to ignore the error or catch and ignore the exception, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do it in haskell. Is the error function unrecoverable? I will modify the library locally to not check for errors on that function if I have to, but I hate to do that. I'm also open to any workaround that would allow me to draw that last character without moving the cursor, but I don't think that is possible. exception haskell exception-handling referential-transparency share|improve this question edited May 9 '11 at 1:49 Don Stewart 116k26301429 asked Nov 22 '10 at 7:14 mindreader 1,031622 Hoogle for "catch" [1]. Second link down. [1] haskell.org/hoogle/?hoogle=catch –Thomas M. DuBuisson Nov 22 '10 at 19:13 Unfortunately the error in question is not in the IO monad. Well it starts in IO, then you go runCurses, which is the Curses monad, then updateWindow, which is the Update monad. Therefore I don't think paul's answer will work. But luqui's looks like it has potential and I'll be trying it when I get home. –mindreader Nov 22 '10 at 20:24 looking over ncurses I am getting the feeling it isn't going to work. drawText

Exceptions in Haskellby Juan Pedro VillaFollow @jpvillaisaza *** Exception: Prelude.head: empty list In Error versus Exception, Henning Thielemann makes a clear distinction between errors and exceptions in Haskell. Even though not all Haskellers make such distinction, it's useful to do so in order to talk about the most basic ways https://www.stackbuilders.com/news/errors-and-exceptions-in-haskell to handle computations that can go wrong and to discuss unsafe functions such as head, fromJust, and (!!). On the one hand, an error is a programming mistake such as a division by zero, the head of an empty list, or a negative index. If we identify an error, we remove it. Thus, we don't handle errors, we simply fix them. In Haskell, we have error and undefined to cause such errors and terminate haskell either execution of the program. On the other hand, an exception is something that can go wrong or that simply doesn't follow a rule but can happen. For example, reading a file that does not exist or that is not readable. If we identify a possible exception, we handle it, and not doing so would be an error. In Haskell, we have pure (Maybe and Either, for instance) and impure ways to handle exceptions. A haskell error catch basic example of an error in Haskell is trying to get the head of an empty list using the head function as defined in GHC.List: head :: [a] -> a head [] = error "head: empty list" head (x:_) = x One way to distinguish an error from an exception is to think in terms of contracts and preconditions. In this case, there's a precondition in the documentation of the head function: the list must be nonempty. This means that the first equation of head is supposed to be dead or unreachable code. This way, if we are sure that a list has at least one element, we can extract its head: ghci> head [104,97,115,107,101,108,108] 104 Of course, the type signature of the head function says nothing about such contract, which means that there's nothing stopping us from applying it to an empty list and therefore breaking the rules: ghci> head [] *** Exception: head: empty list As a comment in the definition of the fromJust function in the Data.Maybe module says, "yuck." Even if trying to get the head of an empty list using head is an error, it's unsafe to do so. We can certainly treat it as an exception and handle it with the Maybe data type: data May
