\subsection[TysPrim-state]{The @State#@ type (and @_RealWorld@ types)}
%* *
%************************************************************************
Note [The ~# TyCon)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There is a perfectly ordinary type constructor ~# that represents the type
of coercions (which, remember, are values). For example
Refl Int :: ~# Int Int
Atcually it is not quite "perfectly ordinary" because it is kind-polymorphic:
Refl Maybe :: ~# Maybe Maybe
So the true kind of ~# :: forall k. k -> k -> #. But we don't have
polymorphic kinds (yet). However, (~) really only appears saturated in
which case there is no problem in finding the kind of (ty1 ~# ty2). So
we check that in CoreLint (and, in an assertion, in Kind.typeKind).
Note [The State# TyCon]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
State# is the primitive, unlifted type of states. It has one type parameter,
thus
State# RealWorld
or
State# s
where s is a type variable. The only purpose of the type parameter is to
keep different state threads separate. It is represented by nothing at all.
\begin{code}
mkStatePrimTy :: Type -> Type
mkStatePrimTy ty = mkTyConApp statePrimTyCon [ty]
statePrimTyCon :: TyCon -- See Note [The State# TyCon]
statePrimTyCon = pcPrimTyCon statePrimTyConName 1 VoidRep
eqPrimTyCon :: TyCon -- The representation type for equality predicates
-- See Note [The ~# TyCon]
eqPrimTyCon = pcPrimTyCon eqPrimTyConName 2 VoidRep
\end{code}
RealWorld is deeply magical. It is *primitive*, but it is not
*unlifted* (hence ptrArg). We never manipulate values of type
RealWorld; it's only used in the type system, to parameterise State#.
\begin{code}
realWorldTyCon :: TyCon
realWorldTyCon = mkLiftedPrimTyCon realWorldTyConName liftedTypeKind 0 PtrRep
realWorldTy :: Type
realWorldTy = mkTyConTy realWorldTyCon
realWorldStatePrimTy :: Type
realWorldStatePrimTy = mkStatePrimTy realWorldTy -- State# RealWorld
\end{code}
Note: the ``state-pairing'' types are not truly primitive, so they are
defined in \tr{TysWiredIn.lhs}, not here.

\subsection[TysPrim-thread-ids]{The ``thread id'' type}
%* *
%************************************************************************
A thread id is represented by a pointer to the TSO itself, to ensure
that they are always unique and we can always find the TSO for a given
thread id. However, this has the unfortunate consequence that a
ThreadId# for a given thread is treated as a root by the garbage
collector and can keep TSOs around for too long.
Hence the programmer API for thread manipulation uses a weak pointer
to the thread id internally.
\begin{code}
threadIdPrimTy :: Type
threadIdPrimTy = mkTyConTy threadIdPrimTyCon
threadIdPrimTyCon :: TyCon
threadIdPrimTyCon = pcPrimTyCon0 threadIdPrimTyConName PtrRep
\end{code}
%************************************************************************
%* *
Any
%* *
%************************************************************************
Note [Any types]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The type constructor Any::* has these properties
* It is defined in module GHC.Prim, and exported so that it is
available to users. For this reason it's treated like any other
primitive type:
- has a fixed unique, anyTyConKey,
- lives in the global name cache
- built with TyCon.PrimTyCon
* It is lifted, and hence represented by a pointer
* It is inhabited by at least one value, namely bottom
* You can unsafely coerce any lifted type to Any, and back.
* It does not claim to be a *data* type, and that's important for
the code generator, because the code gen may *enter* a data value
but never enters a function value.
* It is used to instantiate otherwise un-constrained type variables of kind *
For example length Any []
See Note [Strangely-kinded void TyCons]
In addition, we have a potentially-infinite family of types, one for
each kind /other than/ *, needed to instantiate otherwise
un-constrained type variables of kinds other than *. This is a bit
like tuples; there is a potentially-infinite family. They have slightly
different characteristics to Any::*:
* They are built with TyCon.AnyTyCon
* They have non-user-writable names like "Any(*->*)"
* They are not exported by GHC.Prim
* They are uninhabited (of course; not kind *)
* They have a unique derived from their OccName (see Note [Uniques of Any])
* Their Names do not live in the global name cache
Note [Uniques of Any]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Although Any(*->*), say, doesn't have a binding site, it still needs
to have a Unique. Unlike tuples (which are also an infinite family)
there is no convenient way to index them, so we use the Unique from
their OccName instead. That should be unique,
- both wrt each other, because their strings differ
- and wrt any other Name, because Names get uniques with
various 'char' tags, but the OccName of Any will
get a Unique built with mkTcOccUnique, which has a particular 'char'
tag; see Unique.mkTcOccUnique!
Note [Strangely-kinded void TyCons]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
See Trac #959 for more examples
When the type checker finds a type variable with no binding, which
means it can be instantiated with an arbitrary type, it usually
instantiates it to Void. Eg.
length []
===>
length Any (Nil Any)
But in really obscure programs, the type variable might have a kind
other than *, so we need to invent a suitably-kinded type.
This commit uses
Any for kind *
Any(*->*) for kind *->*
etc
\begin{code}
anyTyConName :: Name
anyTyConName = mkPrimTc (fsLit "Any") anyTyConKey anyTyCon
anyTyCon :: TyCon

anyTyConOfKind :: Kind -> TyCon
-- Map all superkinds of liftedTypeKind to liftedTypeKind

| isLiftedTypeKind kind = anyTyCon
| otherwise = tycon
where
-- Derive the name from the kind, thus:
-- Any(*->*), Any(*->*->*)
-- These are names that can't be written by the user,
-- and are not allocated in the global name cache
