This page is designed to show some simple examples of using monads.

I personally found that I reached monad-enlightenment once I contrived this simple example while playing around to see the "guts" of a monadic expression:

Just 5 >>= (\ x -> if (x == 0) then fail "zero" else Just (x + 1) )

Which results in:

`Just 6`

Some simple exercises:

What would the following snippets resolve to?

Just 0 >>= (\ x -> if (x == 0) then fail "zero" else Just (x + 1) ) Nothing >>= (\ x -> if (x == 0) then fail "zero" else Just (x + 1) )
