... PolyP extends a functional language (a subset of Haskell) with a construct for defining polytypic functions by induction on the structure of user-defined datatypes. Programs in the extended language are translated to Haskell. PolyLib contains powerful structured recursion operators like catamorphisms, maps and traversals, as well as polytypic versions of a number of standard functions from functional programming: sum, length, zip, (==), (6), etc. Both the specification of the library and a PolyP implementation are presented.
