Documentation
A bifunctor is a type constructor that takes
two type arguments and is a functor in both arguments. That
is, unlike with Functor
, a type constructor such as Either
does not need to be partially applied for a Bifunctor
instance, and the methods in this class permit mapping
functions over the Left
value or the Right
value,
or both at the same time.
Formally, the class Bifunctor
represents a bifunctor
from Hask
-> Hask
.
Intuitively it is a bifunctor where both the first and second arguments are covariant.
You can define a Bifunctor
by either defining bimap
or by
defining both first
and second
.
If you supply bimap
, you should ensure that:
bimap
id
id
≡id
If you supply first
and second
, ensure:
first
id
≡id
second
id
≡id
If you supply both, you should also ensure:
bimap
f g ≡first
f.
second
g
These ensure by parametricity:
bimap
(f.
g) (h.
i) ≡bimap
f h.

g ifirst
(f.
g) ≡first
f.

(f.
g) ≡second

second

Examples
>>>
bimap toUpper (+1) ('j', 3)
('J',4)
>>>
bimap toUpper (+1) (Left 'j')
Left 'J'
>>>
bimap toUpper (+1) (Right 3)
Right 4
