X-Description: syntactic sugar improving 'assert' and 'error'
This library contains syntactic sugar that improves
the usability of 'assert' and 'error'.
This is actually a bunch of hacks wrapping the original
'assert' function.
This library contains syntactic sugar that makes it easier
to write simple contracts with 'assert' and 'error'
and report the values that violate contracts.
The original 'assert' function is here re-exported for convenience.
Note that for most of these functions to have any effect, assertions
need to be enabled, e.g., by including in .cabal file the following line:
ghc-options: -fno-ignore-asserts
Package: libghc-assert-failure-dev
Architecture: any
