Suppose you want a constructor like::

M(T: Tuple Cat): MCat(T) == add {...}

for some given category Cat (For simplicity, lets say::

define Cat: Category == with {=:(%,%)->Boolean}

The question now is how do I define MCat and the corresponding add
{...} in such a way that I am able to generate an element of M in a
simple form.

Basically, I want to say::

import from Integer, String, Boolean;
import from M(Integer, String);
import from M(String, String, Boolean);
a := m(4,"a");
b := m("x", "y", true);

Do you have an idea how to define the function m generically?

Also I would probably like to have::

s: String := b.2;
i: Integer := a.1;
q: Boolean := b.3;

Try to define this apply function.

Important, I want to have as much type safety as possible, i.e. If I
would have written::

c := m(1, "x", false);

the compiler should already shout that the type of the first argument
doesn't fit.

Good luck.

Here is a first attempt. It sort of works, but there are problems.

\begin{aldor}[mm]
#pile
#include "axiom.as"
--
M(T: Tuple Type): with
m: T -> %
get: % -> T
m(x:T):% == (x) pretend %
get(x:%):T == x pretend T
\end{aldor}

\begin{axiom}
)show M
\end{axiom}

Unfortunately the Axiom interpreter does not understand 'Tuple Type'
\begin{axiom}
a := m(4,"a")$M(Integer,String) \end{axiom} But this can be written in Aldor \begin{aldor} #pile #include "axiom.as" #library mm "mm.ao" import from mm inline from mm -- main():Record(i:String,j:String,k:Boolean) == import from Integer, String, Boolean import from M(Integer, String) import from M(String, String, Boolean) a := m(4,"a"); b := m("x", "y", true) -- -- type error: -- c := m(1, "x", false) -- (i,j,k):=get(b) [i,j,k] \end{aldor} \begin{axiom} main() \end{axiom} Note: values of j and k are wrong!  **On Date: Jun 26, 2007 8:19 AM Ralf Hemmecke wrote:(( Suppose you want a constructor like:  M(T: Tuple Cat): MCat(T) == add {...}  for some given category Cat (For simplicity, lets say:  define Cat: Category == with {=:(%,%)->Boolean}  The question now is how do I define MCat? and the corresponding add {...} in such a way that I am able to generate an element of M in a simple form.

Perhaps you should use "@" to indicate the required return type,
or "$" to specify which version of the function you need.
