enumerate-function-0.0.0: TODO

Safe HaskellNone




  1. given:
data Edit = Edit Action Slice Region
 deriving (Show,Read,Eq,Ord,Generic,Enumerable)

data Action
 = Transpose
 | Copy
 | Delete
 deriving (Show,Read,Eq,Ord,Enum,Bounded,Generic,Enumerable)

data Slice
 = Whole
 | Backwards
 | Forwards
 deriving (Show,Read,Eq,Ord,Enum,Bounded,Generic,Enumerable)

data Region
 = Character
 | Token
 | Line
 deriving (Show,Read,Eq,Ord,Enum,Bounded,Generic,Enumerable)

we can enumerate every possible editing action:

> enumerated :: [Edit]
  1. given a mapping to keyboard shortcuts within emacs:
type KeyBinding = [String]
emacsEdit :: Edit -> KeyBinding

the `enumerate-function` package can:

  • verify that emacsEdit doesn't map different editing actions to the same keybindings, which would mean that one would shadow the other i.e. it has no collisions; i.e. it's is injective.
  • TODO verify that emacsEdit maps every editing action to some keybinding, which asserts that the relevant application supports Editing in its entirety. (e.g. Emacs can, Chrome can't); i.e. it's is surjective.
  • detect whether emacsEdit is actually total; i.e. free of bottoms. Haskell's exhaustivity checker (enable `-Wall`) can verify the totality of emacsEdit, assuming no partial functions.
  • serialize emacsEdit into a mapping, from which elisp source can be extracted.
