5855,Computation Hangs Using PolyKinds,paf31,,"I have tried to distill this down to a minimal example. The following computation hangs in ghci when evaluating ""toInt Zero"":
{{{

}}}
Setting a breakpoint in ghci seems to indicate that the expression (fold (PHom phi psi)) is being evaluated in full, which would obviously cause an unbounded recursion.
However, the following version runs fine and terminates as expected:
{{{

> data Choice = Fst | Snd
> newtype PHom p1 p2 = PHom { runPHom :: forall r. ((p1 Fst -> p2 Fst) -> (p1 Snd -> p2 Snd) -> r) -> r }
> mkPHom f g = PHom (\h -> h f g)
> fstPHom p = runPHom p (\f -> \g -> f)
> sndPHom p = runPHom p (\f -> \g -> g)
> data FNat :: (Choice -> *) -> Choice -> * where
> FZero :: FNat p Fst
> FSucc1 :: p Snd -> FNat p Fst
> FSucc2 :: p Fst -> FNat p Snd
> hmap p = mkPHom hf hg where
> hf FZero = FZero
> hf (FSucc1 x) = FSucc1 (sndPHom p x)
> hg (FSucc2 x) = FSucc2 (fstPHom p x)
> data Nat :: Choice -> * where
> Zero :: Nat Fst
> Succ1 :: Nat Snd -> Nat Fst
> Succ2 :: Nat Fst -> Nat Snd
> out = mkPHom f g where
> f Zero = FZero
> f (Succ1 n) = FSucc1 n
> g (Succ2 n) = FSucc2 n
> compose f g = mkPHom (fstPHom g . fstPHom f) (sndPHom g . sndPHom f)
> fold phi = compose out (compose (hmap (fold phi)) phi)
> data EvenOdd :: Choice -> * where
> Even :: Int -> EvenOdd Fst
> Odd :: Int -> EvenOdd Snd
> toInt :: Nat Fst -> Int

> let (Even n) = fstPHom p x in n where
> phi FZero = Even 0
> phi (FSucc1 (Odd n)) = Even (n + 1)
> psi (FSucc2 (Even n)) = Odd (n + 1)
}}}
The major change is that the data type PHom has been replaced with a newtype wrapper around a product encoded as a function.",bug,closed,normal,,Compiler,7.4.1,invalid,,,Windows,Unknown/Multiple,Runtime crash,,,,,
