The strict `WriterT`

monad transformer, which adds collection of
outputs (such as a count or string output) to a given monad.

This monad transformer provides only limited access to the output during the computation. For more general access, use Control.Monad.Trans.State instead.

This version builds its output strictly and uses continuation-passing-style to achieve constant space usage. This transformer can be used as a drop-in replacement for Control.Monad.Trans.Writer.Strict.

# The Writer monad

writer :: (Monoid w, Monad m) => (a, w) -> WriterT w m a Source #

Construct a writer computation from a (result, output) pair.
(The inverse of `runWriter`

.)

runWriter :: Monoid w => Writer w a -> (a, w) Source #

Unwrap a writer computation as a (result, output) pair.
(The inverse of `writer`

.)

execWriter :: Monoid w => Writer w a -> w Source #

Extract the output from a writer computation.

# The WriterT monad transformer

A writer monad parameterized by:

`w`

- the output to accumulate.`m`

- The inner monad.

The `return`

function produces the output `mempty`

, while `>>=`

combines the outputs of the subcomputations using `mappend`

.
