• Types What is a type ? Nicolas Rolland Functional prototyping August 3, 2014 4 / 34
• Types What is a type ? Type A type is a set of values. Nicolas Rolland Functional prototyping August 3, 2014 4 / 34
• Types What is a type ? Type A type is a set of values. why do we need to think of it in typed functional programming ? a value is a value e.g. 1 Nicolas Rolland Functional prototyping August 3, 2014 4 / 34
• Types What is a type ? Type A type is a set of values. why do we need to think of it in typed functional programming ? a value is a value e.g. 1 a function is a value too ! let plus = (+) //fun x y -> x + y let plusone = plus 1 //fun x -> x + 1 let three = plusone 2 //3 Nicolas Rolland Functional prototyping August 3, 2014 4 / 34
• Types What is a type ? Type A type is a set of values. why do we need to think of it in typed functional programming ? a value is a value e.g. 1 a function is a value too ! let plus = (+) //fun x y -> x + y let plusone = plus 1 //fun x -> x + 1 let three = plusone 2 //3 hence everything is a value, everything has a type !

• Using types Nicolas Rolland Functional prototyping August 3, 2014 5 / 34
• Using types by restriction we get correctness - The computer tells us the errors Nicolas Rolland Functional prototyping August 3, 2014 5 / 34
• Using types by restriction we get correctness - The computer tells us the errors restriction tells readers a specication - We can communicate to other people Nicolas Rolland Functional prototyping August 3, 2014 5 / 34
• Using types by restriction we get correctness - The computer tells us the errors restriction tells readers a specication - We can communicate to other people Types should be helping you, not get in your way. No need to write the types in F#. Less work AND more security ! You can write the types for the purpose of communication with others Nicolas Rolland Functional prototyping August 3, 2014 5 / 34

• Existentials Interfaces allows to abstract in object oriented programming Like universals types, it hides something, but what is the relation ? Nicolas Rolland Functional prototyping August 3, 2014 19 / 34
• Existentials Interfaces allows to abstract in object oriented programming Like universals types, it hides something, but what is the relation ? Functional is Mathematics !

• parser return type - rst try type ParseReturn = | Success of ret | Failure of string type Parser = List -> ParseReturn * List reading the parser type a parser takes a list of token in it returns a ParserReturn , and the tokens not yet processed Nicolas Rolland Functional prototyping August 3, 2014 31 / 34
• parser return type - rst try type ParseReturn = | Success of ret | Failure of string type Parser = List -> ParseReturn * List reading the parser type a parser takes a list of token in it returns a ParserReturn , and the tokens not yet processed a ParserReturn is the value represented by the token consumed Ok, but........ 9.12 : 9 is a number.. but if we recognize 9 as 9 only, what do we do for .12 ? = the result of a parser depends also on the rest of the string If it matters, it should be part of the returned type of a parser ! Nicolas Rolland Functional prototyping August 3, 2014 31 / 34
• parser return type type ParseReturn = | Success of ret *(token list) | Failure of string type Parser = token list -> ParseReturn e.g. 9.12 reading the parser type Each success contains a recognized value along with the rest Because the notion of what is the rest is dependent on the Val produced ParseReturn now contains a coherent and actionable unit of information Nicolas Rolland Functional prototyping August 3, 2014 32 / 34
