[Computation type:] Computations which may fail or throw exceptions.

[Binding strategy:] Failure records information about the cause\/location
of the failure. Failure values bypass the bound function,
other values are used as inputs to the bound function.

[Useful for:] Building computations from sequences of functions that may fail
or using exception handling to structure error handling.

[Zero and plus:] Zero is represented by an empty error and the plus operation
executes its second argument if the first fails.

[Example type:] @'Data.Either' String a@

The Error monad (also called the Exception monad).

The error monad transformer. It can be used to add error handling to other

The @ErrorT@ Monad structure is parameterized over two things:

 * e - The error type.

 * m - The inner monad.

Here are some examples of use:

> -- wraps IO action that can throw an error e
> type ErrorWithIO e a = ErrorT e IO a
> ==> ErrorT (IO (Either e a))
> -- IO monad wrapped in StateT inside of ErrorT
> type ErrorAndStateWithIO e s a = ErrorT e (StateT s IO) a
> ==> ErrorT (StateT s IO (Either e a))
> ==> ErrorT (StateT (s -> IO (Either e a,s)))

{- $customErrorExample
Here is an example that demonstrates the use of a custom 'Error' data type with
the 'throwError' and 'catchError' exception mechanism from 'MonadError'.
The example throws an exception if the user enters an empty string
or a string longer than 5 characters. Otherwise it prints length of the string.

>-- This is the type to represent length calculation error.
>data LengthError = EmptyString  -- Entered string was empty.
>          | StringTooLong Int   -- A string is longer than 5 characters.
>                                -- Records a length of the string.
>          | OtherError String   -- Other error, stores the problem description.
>-- We make LengthError an instance of the Error class
>-- to be able to throw it as an exception.
>instance Error LengthError where
>  noMsg    = OtherError "A String Error!"
>  strMsg s = OtherError s
>-- Converts LengthError to a readable message.
>instance Show LengthError where
>  show EmptyString = "The string was empty!"
>  show (StringTooLong len) =
>      "The length of the string (" ++ (show len) ++ ") is bigger than 5!"
>  show (OtherError msg) = msg
>-- For our monad type constructor, we use Either LengthError
>-- which represents failure using Left LengthError
>-- or a successful result of type a using Right a.
>type LengthMonad = Either LengthError
>main = do
>  putStrLn "Please enter a string:"
>  s <- getLine
>  reportResult (calculateLength s)
>-- Wraps length calculation to catch the errors.
>-- Returns either length of the string or an error.
>calculateLength :: String -> LengthMonad Int
>calculateLength s = (calculateLengthOrFail s) `catchError` Left
>-- Attempts to calculate length and throws an error if the provided string is
>-- empty or longer than 5 characters.
>-- The processing is done in Either monad.
>calculateLengthOrFail :: String -> LengthMonad Int
>calculateLengthOrFail [] = throwError EmptyString
>calculateLengthOrFail s | len > 5 = throwError (StringTooLong len)
>                        | otherwise = return len
>  where len = length s
>-- Prints result of the string length calculation.
>reportResult :: LengthMonad Int -> IO ()
>reportResult (Right len) = putStrLn ("The length of the string is " ++ (show len))
>reportResult (Left e) = putStrLn ("Length calculation failed with error: " ++ (show e))

{- $ErrorTExample
@'ErrorT'@ monad transformer can be used to add error handling to another monad.
Here is an example how to combine it with an @IO@ monad:

>import Control.Monad.Error
>-- An IO monad which can return String failure.
>-- It is convenient to define the monad type of the combined monad,
>-- especially if we combine more monad transformers.
>type LengthMonad = ErrorT String IO
>main = do
>  -- runErrorT removes the ErrorT wrapper
>  r <- runErrorT calculateLength
>  reportResult r
>-- Asks user for a non-empty string and returns its length.
>-- Throws an error if user enters an empty string.
>calculateLength :: LengthMonad Int
>calculateLength = do
>  -- all the IO operations have to be lifted to the IO monad in the monad stack
>  liftIO $ putStrLn "Please enter a non-empty string: "
>  s <- liftIO getLine
>  if null s
>    then throwError "The string was empty!"
>    else return $ length s
>-- Prints result of the string length calculation.
>reportResult :: Either String Int -> IO ()
>reportResult (Right len) = putStrLn ("The length of the string is " ++ (show len))
>reportResult (Left e) = putStrLn ("Length calculation failed with error: " ++ (show e))
