[commit: ghc] master: Add OverloadedLists, allowing list syntax to be overloaded (3234a4a)

Johan Tibell-2
Did we end up supporting a length hint so we can efficiently create e.g.
vectors that need upfront allocation of the space before writing the
elements? Or is the plan to do like we for String and have literals desugar
to e.g.

fromIntList# :: Int# -> Ptr Int# -> [Int]

intList# :: Ptr Int#
intList# = [1,2,3,4]#

myliteral = fromList (fromIntList# 4 intList#)

[commit: ghc] master: Add OverloadedLists, allowing list syntax to be overloaded (3234a4a)

Simon Peyton Jones
I think so.. it's described on the wiki.  Achim may be able to help too

    Add OverloadedLists, allowing list syntax to be overloaded

    This work was all done by
       Achim Krause <achim.t.krause at gmail.com<mailto:achim.t.krause at gmail.com>>
       George Giorgidze <giorgidze at gmail.com<mailto:giorgidze at gmail.com>>
       Weijers Jeroen <jeroen.weijers at uni-tuebingen.de<mailto:jeroen.weijers at uni-tuebingen.de>>

    It allows list syntax, such as [a,b], [a..b] and so on, to be
    overloaded so that it works for a variety of types.

    The design is described here:
        http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/OverloadedLists

    Eg. you can use it for maps, so that
            [(1,"foo"), (4,"bar")] :: Map Int String

    The main changes
     * The ExplicitList constructor of HsExpr gets witness field
     * Ditto ArithSeq constructor
     * Ditto the ListPat constructor of HsPat

    Everything else flows from this.
