deepseq-126.96.36.199: Deep evaluation of data structures
This package provides methods for fully evaluating data structures ("deep evaluation"). Deep evaluation is often used for adding strictness to a program, e.g. in order to force pending exceptions, remove space leaks, or force lazy I/O to happen. It is also useful in parallel programs, to ensure pending work does not migrate to the wrong thread.
The primary use of this package is via the
deepseq function, a
"deep" version of
seq. It is implemented on top of an
typeclass ("Normal Form Data", data structures with no unevaluated
components) which defines strategies for fully evaluating different
