A* requires keeping a priority queue of places to visit. This can be done with a simple sorted list, but I decided to make a PriorityQueue data type for use in the algorithm instead. The implementation uses lazy pairing heaps from Chris Okasaki's **Purely Functional Data Structures**.

module PriorityQueue ( PriorityQueue, empty, singleton, fromList, null, deleteFindMin, deleteMin, findMin, insert, union ) where import Prelude hiding (null) import Data.List (foldl') data Ord k => PriorityQueue k a = Nil | Branch k a (PriorityQueue k a) (PriorityQueue k a) empty :: Ord k => PriorityQueue k a empty = Nil singleton :: Ord k => k -> a -> PriorityQueue k a singleton k a = Branch k a Nil Nil fromList :: Ord k => [(k,a)] -> PriorityQueue k a fromList = foldl' (\q (k,a) -> singleton k a `union` q) empty null :: Ord k => PriorityQueue k a -> Bool null Nil = True null _ = False deleteFindMin :: Ord k => PriorityQueue k a -> ((k,a), PriorityQueue k a) deleteFindMin Nil = error "Empty heap." deleteFindMin (Branch k a l r) = ((k,a), union l r) deleteMin :: Ord k => PriorityQueue k a -> PriorityQueue k a deleteMin h = snd (deleteFindMin h) findMin :: Ord k => PriorityQueue k a -> (k, a) findMin h = fst (deleteFindMin h) insert :: Ord k => k -> a -> PriorityQueue k a -> PriorityQueue k a insert k a h = union (singleton k a) h union :: Ord k => PriorityQueue k a -> PriorityQueue k a -> PriorityQueue k a union l Nil = l union Nil r = r union l@(Branch kl _ _ _) r@(Branch kr _ _ _) | kl <= kr = link l r | otherwise = link r l link (Branch k a Nil m) r = Branch k a r m link (Branch k a ll lr) r = Branch k a Nil (union (union r ll) lr)

Not all the functions from data structures in the standard library (Data.Map, Data.Set, etc.) are provided; I only wrote those that are needed for the algorithm. However, this could be extended easily.

The rest is just a general A* function, which takes a starting place, and functions for successors, testing for completion, cost of a place, and heuristic estimation from a place to the end, returning the path taken (a list from end to start). The rest of the code deals with the specifics of the ASCII map:
