### Description

I want to write the following record pattern synonym

pattern MkOp :: Op -> Exp -> Exp -> Exp pattern MkOp {(·), a, b} <- (splitOp -> Just ((·), a, b)) where MkOp (·) a b = a · b

given this code

data Exp = Val Int | Add Exp Exp | Mul Exp Exp deriving Show type Op = Exp -> Exp -> Exp splitOp :: Exp -> Maybe (Op, Exp, Exp) splitOp (Add a b) = Just (Add, a, b) splitOp (Mul a b) = Just (Mul, a, b) splitOp _ = Nothing

It works fine if `(·)`

is replaced by `operator`

. Fields of regular data types works just fine:

data F a = F { (·) :: a -> a -> a, x :: a, y :: a } f F{(·), x, y} = x·y g F{..} = x·y
