Proposal: add some missing tuple functions

Don Stewart dons at galois.com
Tue Mar 11 14:13:15 EDT 2008


Basic texts often define

    swap, fst3, snd3 and thd3

So let's add them to the rather bare Data.Tuple.

The fst3.. series were approved to be added a couple of years ago, but I
never got around to it.

The patch is attached.

 GHC.Base SOURCE-imports GHC.Err, and re-exports 'error'.  So

 This doesn't change the fact that these other modules are all compiled
 before GHC.Err, so they are all part of the module loop that starts with
 GHC.Base and finishes with GHC.Err.  But it does reduce the occurrence
 of those SOURCE imports.

[Move file locking into the RTS, fixing #629, #1109
Simon Marlow <simonmar at microsoft.com>**20071120121053
 File locking (of the Haskell 98 variety) was previously done using a
 static table with linear search, which had two problems: the array had
 a fixed size and was sometimes too small (#1109), and performance of
 lockFile/unlockFile was suboptimal due to the linear search.
 Also the algorithm failed to count readers as required by Haskell 98
 (#629).
 
 Now it's done using a hash table (provided by the RTS).  Furthermore I
 avoided the extra fstat() for every open file by passing the dev_t and
 ino_t into lockFile.  This and the improvements to the locking
 algorithm result in a healthy 20% or so performance increase for
 opening/closing files (see openFile008 test).

 Yikes!  While investigating the increase in code size with GHC 6.8

 libraries we lost -funbox-strict-fields, which is more or less
 depended on by the IO library for performance.  I'm astonished that we
 didn't notice this earlier!

 -funbox-strict-fields in the OPTIONS_GHC pragma of the modules that
 need it.  {-# UNPACK #-} pragmas would be better, though.

Simon Marlow <simonmar at microsoft.com>**20070507123537
 
 Now, we only set O_NONBLOCK on file descriptors that we create
 ourselves.  File descriptors that we inherit (stdin, stdout, stderr)
 are kept in blocking mode.  The way we deal with this differs between
 the threaded and non-threaded runtimes:
 
  - with -threaded, we just make a safe foreign call to read(), which
    may block, but this is ok.
 
  - without -threaded, we test the descriptor with select() before
    attempting any I/O.  This isn't completely safe - someone else
    might read the data between the select() and the read() - but it's
    a reasonable compromise and doesn't seem to measurably affect
    performance.

 they are not duplicating any computation.

 unsafeDupablePerformIO    :: IO a -> a
 unsafeDupableInterleaveIO :: IO a -> IO a
 
 which are equivalent to the old unsafePerformIO and unsafeInterleaveIO
 respectively.  The new versions of these functions are defined as:
 
 unsafePerformIO    m = unsafeDupablePerformIO (noDuplicate >> m)
 unsafeInterleaveIO m = unsafeDupableInterleaveIO (noDuplicate >> m)

[Change the API of MArray to allow resizable arrays
Simon Marlow <simonmar at microsoft.com>**20060809100548
 See #704
 
 The MArray class doesn't currently allow a mutable array to change its
 size, because of the pure function 
 
   bounds :: (HasBounds a, Ix i) => a i e -> (i,i)
 
 This patch removes the HasBounds class, and adds
 
   getBounds :: (MArray a e m, Ix i) => a i e -> m (i,i)
 
 to the MArray class, and
 
   bounds :: (IArray a e, Ix i) => a i e -> (i,i)
 
 to the IArray class.
 
 The reason that bounds had to be incorporated into the IArray class is
 because I couldn't make DiffArray work without doing this.  DiffArray
 acts as a layer converting an MArray into an IArray, and there was no
 way (that I could find) to define an instance of HasBounds for
 DiffArray.

 unpack/build on bytestrings seems to trigger a bug when interacting with
 head/build fusion in GHC.List. The bytestring001 testcase catches it.
 
 I'll investigate further, but best to disable this for now (its not
 often used anyway).
 
 Note that with -frules-off or ghc 6.4.2 things are fine. It seems to
 have emerged with the recent rules changes.

[Import Data.ByteString.Lazy, improve ByteString Fusion, and resync with FPS head
Don Stewart <dons at cse.unsw.edu.au>**20060701084345
 
 This patch imports the Data.ByteString.Lazy module, and its helpers,
 providing a ByteString implemented as a lazy list of strict cache-sized
 chunks. This type allows the usual lazy operations to be written on
 bytestrings, including lazy IO, with much improved space and time over
 the [Char] equivalents.

       * Generalise the type of unfoldrN
       
       The type of unfoldrN was overly constrained:
       unfoldrN :: Int -> (Word8 -> Maybe (Word8, Word8)) -> Word8 -> ByteString
       
       if we compare that to unfoldr:
       unfoldr :: (b -> Maybe (a, b)) -> b -> [a]
       
       So we can generalise unfoldrN to this type:
       unfoldrN :: Int -> (a -> Maybe (Word8, a)) -> a -> ByteString
       
       and something similar for the .Char8 version. If people really do want to
       use it a lot with Word8/Char then perhaps we should add a specialise pragma.

[Make unsafePerformIO lazy
simonpj at microsoft**20060508142507
 
 The stricteness analyser used to have a HACK which ensured that NOINLNE things
 were not strictness-analysed.  The reason was unsafePerformIO. Left to itself,
 the strictness analyser would discover this strictness for unsafePerformIO:
 	unsafePerformIO:  C(U(AV))
 But then consider this sub-expression
 	unsafePerformIO (\s -> let r = f x in 
 			       case writeIORef v r s of (# s1, _ #) ->
 			       (# s1, r #)
 The strictness analyser will now find that r is sure to be eval'd,
 and may then hoist it out.  This makes tests/lib/should_run/memo002
 deadlock.
 
 Solving this by making all NOINLINE things have no strictness info is overkill.
 In particular, it's overkill for runST, which is perfectly respectable.
 Consider
 	f x = runST (return x)
 This should be strict in x.
 
 So the new plan is to define unsafePerformIO using the 'lazy' combinator:
 
 	unsafePerformIO (IO m) = lazy (case m realWorld# of (# _, r #) -> r)
 
 Remember, 'lazy' is a wired-in identity-function Id, of type a->a, which is 
 magically NON-STRICT, and is inlined after strictness analysis.  So
 unsafePerformIO will look non-strict, and that's what we want.

 the client wants to know about the unrecognised options up to the
 first non-option, and will be using a different option parser for the
 rest of the command line.

[Simplify Eq, Ord, and Show instances for UArray
Simon Marlow <simonmar at microsoft.com>**20060313142701
 The Eq, Ord, and Show instances of UArray were written out longhand
 with one instance per element type.  It is possible to condense these
 into a single instance for each class, at the expense of using more
 extensions (non-std context on instance declaration).

[Give -foverlapping-instances to Data.Typeable
simonpj at microsoft**20060206133439
 
 For some time, GHC has made -fallow-overlapping-instances "sticky": 
 any instance in a module compiled with -fallow-overlapping-instances
 can overlap when imported, regardless of whether the importing module
 allows overlap.  (If there is an overlap, both instances must come from
 modules thus compiled.)
 
 Instances in Data.Typeable might well want to be overlapped, so this
 commit adds the flag to Data.Typeable (with an explanatory comment)

[add foldr/build optimisation for take and replicate
Simon Marlow <simonmar at microsoft.com>**20060126164603
 This allows take to be deforested, and improves performance of
 replicate and replicateM/replicateM_.  We have a separate problem that
 means expressions involving [n..m] aren't being completely optimised
 because eftIntFB isn't being inlined but otherwise the results look
 good.  
 
 Sadly this has invalidated a number of the nofib benchmarks which were
 erroneously using take to duplicate work in a misguided attempt to
 lengthen their runtimes (ToDo).
