ML-style %\index{module systems}%module systems%~\cite{modules}% and Haskell %\index{type classes}%type classes%~\cite{typeclasses}% are more flexible cases. These language features are often not as powerful as we would like. For instance, while Haskell includes a type class classifying those types whose values can be pretty-printed, per-type pretty-printing is usually either implemented manually or implemented via a %\index{deriving clauses}%[deriving] clause%~\cite{deriving}%, which triggers ad-hoc code generation. Some clever encoding tricks have been used to achieve better within Haskell and other languages, but we can do%\index{datatype-generic programming}% _datatype-generic programming_ much more cleanly with dependent types. Thanks to the expressive power of CIC, we need no special language support. Generic programming can often be very useful in Coq developments, so we devote this chapter to studying it. In a proof assistant, there is the new possibility of generic proofs about generic programs, which we also devote some space to. *) (** * Reifying Datatype Definitions *) (** The key to generic programming with dependent types is%\index{universe types}% _universe types_. This concept should not be confused with the idea of _universes_ from the metatheory of CIC and related languages. Rather, the idea of universe types is to define inductive types that provide _syntactic representations_ of Coq types. We cannot directly write CIC programs that do case analysis on types, but we _can_ case analyze on reified syntactic versions of those types. Thus, to begin, we must define a syntactic representation of some class of datatypes. In this chapter, our running example will have to do with basic algebraic datatypes, of the kind found in ML and Haskell, but without additional bells and whistles like type parameters and mutually recursive definitions. The first step is to define a representation for constructors of our datatypes. We use the [Record] command as a shorthand for defining an inductive type with a single constructor, plus projection functions for pulling out any of the named arguments to that constructor. *) (* EX: Define a reified representation of simple algebraic datatypes. *) (* begin thide *) Record constructor : Type := Con { nonrecursive : Type; recursive : nat }. (** The idea is that a constructor represented as [Con T n] has [n] arguments of the type that we are defining. Additionally, all of the other, non-recursive arguments can be encoded in the type [T]. When there are no non-recursive arguments, [T] can be [unit]. When there are two non-recursive arguments, of types [A] and [B], [T] can be [A * B]. We can generalize to any number of arguments via tupling. With this definition, it is easy to define a datatype representation in terms of lists of constructors. The intended meaning is that the datatype came from an inductive definition including exactly the constructors in the list. *) Definition datatype := list constructor. (** Here are a few example encodings for some common types from the Coq standard library. While our syntax type does not support type parameters directly, we can implement them at the meta level, via functions from types to [datatype]s. *) Definition Empty_set_dt : datatype := nil. Definition unit_dt : datatype := Con unit 0 :: nil. Definition bool_dt : datatype := Con unit 0 :: Con unit 0 :: nil. Definition nat_dt : datatype := Con unit 0 :: Con unit 1 :: nil. Definition list_dt (A : Type) : datatype := Con unit 0 :: Con A 1 :: nil. (** The type [Empty_set] has no constructors, so its representation is the empty list. The type [unit] has one constructor with no arguments, so its one reified constructor indicates no non-recursive data and [0] recursive arguments. The representation for [bool] just duplicates this single argumentless constructor. We get from [bool] to [nat] by changing one of the constructors to indicate 1 recursive argument. We get from [nat] to [list] by adding a non-recursive argument of a parameter type [A]. As a further example, we can do the same encoding for a generic binary tree type. *) (* end thide *) Section tree. Variable A : Type. Inductive tree : Type := | Leaf : A -> tree | Node : tree -> tree -> tree. End tree. (* begin thide *) Definition tree_dt (A : Type) : datatype := Con A 0 :: Con unit 2 :: nil. (** Each datatype representation stands for a family of inductive types. For a specific real datatype and a reputed representation for it, it is useful to define a type of _evidence_ that the datatype is compatible with the encoding. *) Section denote. Variable T : Type. (** This variable stands for the concrete datatype that we are interested in. *) Definition constructorDenote (c : constructor) := nonrecursive c -> ilist T (recursive c) -> T. (** We write that a constructor is represented as a function returning a [T]. Such a function takes two arguments, which pack together the non-recursive and recursive arguments of the constructor. We represent a tuple of all recursive arguments using the length-indexed list type %\index{Gallina terms!ilist}%[ilist] that we met in Chapter 8. *) Definition datatypeDenote := hlist constructorDenote. (** Finally, the evidence for type [T] is a %\index{Gallina terms!hlist}%heterogeneous list, including a constructor denotation for every constructor encoding in a datatype encoding. Recall that, since we are inside a section binding [T] as a variable, [constructorDenote] is automatically parameterized by [T]. *) End denote. (* end thide *) (** Some example pieces of evidence should help clarify the convention. First, we define some helpful notations, providing different ways of writing constructor denotations. There is really just one notation, but we need several versions of it to cover different choices of which variables will be used in the body of a definition. %The ASCII \texttt{\textasciitilde{}>} from the notation will be rendered later as $\leadsto$.% *) Notation "[ ! , ! ~> x ]" := ((fun _ _ => x) : constructorDenote _ (Con _ _)). Notation "[ v , ! ~> x ]" := ((fun v _ => x) : constructorDenote _ (Con _ _)). Notation "[ ! , r ~> x ]" := ((fun _ r => x) : constructorDenote _ (Con _ _)). Notation "[ v , r ~> x ]" := ((fun v r => x) : constructorDenote _ (Con _ _)). (* begin thide *) Definition Empty_set_den : datatypeDenote Empty_set Empty_set_dt := HNil.

(* end thide *) (** Recall that the [hd] and [tl] calls above operate on richly typed lists, where type indices tell us the lengths of lists, guaranteeing the safety of operations like [hd]. The type annotation attached to each definition provides enough information for Coq to infer list lengths at appropriate points. *) (** * Recursive Definitions *) (* EX: Define a generic [size] function. *) (** We built these encodings of datatypes to help us write datatype-generic recursive functions. To do so, we will want a reified representation of a%\index{recursion schemes}% _recursion scheme_ for each type, similar to the [T_rect] principle generated automatically for an inductive definition of [T]. A clever reuse of [datatypeDenote] yields a short definition. *) (* begin thide *) Definition fixDenote (T : Type) (dt : datatype) := forall (R : Type), datatypeDenote R dt -> (T -> R). (** The idea of a recursion scheme is parameterized by a type and a reputed encoding of it. The principle itself is polymorphic in a type [R], which is the return type of the recursive function that we mean to write. The next argument is a heterogeneous list of one case of the recursive function definition for each datatype constructor. The [datatypeDenote] function turns out to have just the right definition to express the type we need; a set of function cases is just like an alternate set of constructors where we replace the original type [T] with the function result type [R]. Given such a reified definition, a [fixDenote] invocation returns a function from [T] to [R], which is just what we wanted. We are ready to write some example functions now. It will be useful to use one new function from the [DepList] library included in the book source. *) Check hmake. (** %\vspace{-.15in}% [[ hmake : forall (A : Type) (B : A -> Type), (forall x : A, B x) -> forall ls : list A, hlist B ls ]] The function [hmake] is a kind of [map] alternative that goes from a regular [list] to an [hlist]. We can use it to define a generic size function that counts the number of constructors used to build a value in a datatype. *) Definition size T dt (fx : fixDenote T dt) : T -> nat := fx nat (hmake (B := constructorDenote nat) (fun _ _ r => foldr plus 1 r) dt). (** Our definition is parameterized over a recursion scheme [fx]. We instantiate [fx] by passing it the function result type and a set of function cases, where we build the latter with [hmake]. The function argument to [hmake] takes three arguments: the representation of a constructor, its non-recursive arguments, and the results of recursive calls on all of its recursive arguments. We only need the recursive call results here, so we call them [r] and bind the other two inputs with wildcards. The actual case body is simple: we add together the recursive call results and increment the result by one (to account for the current constructor). This [foldr] function is an [hlist]-specific version defined in the [DepList] module. It is instructive to build [fixDenote] values for our example types and see what specialized [size] functions result from them. *) Definition Empty_set_fix : fixDenote Empty_set Empty_set_dt := fun R _ emp => match emp with end. Eval compute in size Empty_set_fix. (** %\vspace{-.15in}% [[ = fun emp : Empty_set => match emp return nat with end : Empty_set -> nat ]] Despite all the fanciness of the generic [size] function, CIC's standard computation rules suffice to normalize the generic function specialization to exactly what we would have written manually. *) Definition unit_fix : fixDenote unit unit_dt := fun R cases _ => (hhd cases) tt INil. Eval compute in size unit_fix. (** %\vspace{-.15in}% [[ = fun _ : unit => 1 : unit -> nat ]] Again normalization gives us the natural function definition. We see this pattern repeated for our other example types. *) Definition bool_fix : fixDenote bool bool_dt := fun R cases b => if b then (hhd cases) tt INil else (hhd (htl cases)) tt INil. Eval compute in size bool_fix. (** %\vspace{-.15in}% [[ = fun b : bool => if b then 1 else 1 : bool -> nat ]] *) Definition nat_fix : fixDenote nat nat_dt := fun R cases => fix F (n : nat) : R := match n with | O => (hhd cases) tt INil | S n' => (hhd (htl cases)) tt (ICons (F n') INil) end. (** To peek at the [size] function for [nat], it is useful to avoid full computation, so that the recursive definition of addition is not expanded inline. We can accomplish this with proper flags for the [cbv] reduction strategy. *) Eval cbv beta iota delta -[plus] in size nat_fix.

To do so, we will need a bit of metadata for each constructor. Specifically, we need the name to print for the constructor and the function to use to render its non-recursive arguments. Everything else can be done generically. *) Record print_constructor (c : constructor) : Type := PI { printName : string; printNonrec : nonrecursive c -> string }. (** It is useful to define a shorthand for applying the constructor [PI]. By applying it explicitly to an unknown application of the constructor [Con], we help type inference work. *) Notation "^" := (PI (Con _ _)).

Variable fx : fixDenote T dt. (** First, we characterize when a piece of evidence about a datatype is acceptable. The basic idea is that the type [T] should really be an inductive type with the definition given by [dd]. Semantically, inductive types are characterized by the ability to do induction on them.

(** This definition can take a while to digest. The quantifier over [m : member c dt] is considering each constructor in turn; like in normal induction principles, each constructor has an associated proof case. The expression [hget dd m] then names the constructor we have selected. After binding [m], we quantify over all possible arguments (encoded with [x] and [r]) to the constructor that [m] selects. Within each specific case, we quantify further over [i : fin (recursive c)] to consider all of our induction hypotheses, one for each recursive argument of the current constructor. We have completed half the burden of defining side conditions. The other half comes in characterizing when a recursion scheme [fx] is valid. The natural condition is that [fx] behaves appropriately when applied to any constructor application. *) Definition fixDenoteOk := forall (R : Type) (cases : datatypeDenote R dt) c (m : member c dt) (x : nonrecursive c) (r : ilist T (recursive c)), fx cases ((hget dd m) x r) = (hget cases m) x (imap (fx cases) r).
