Algebraic Effects and Effect Handlers for Idioms and Arrows

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Plotkin and Power's algebraic effects combined with Plotkin and Pretnar's effect handlers provide a foundation for modular programming with effects. We present a generalisation of algebraic effects and effect handlers to support other kinds of effectful computations corresponding to McBride and Paterson's idioms and Hughes' arrows.
