collect, fromList,
Stream.map, Stream.mapM, Stream.mapAccumL
) where
import Control.Monad
import Control.Applicative

-- @Stream m a b@ is a computation in some Monad @m@ that delivers a sequence
-- of elements of type @a@ followed by a result of type @b@.
--
-- More concretely, a value of type @Stream m a b@ can be run using @runStream@
-- in the Monad @m@, and it delivers either
--
-- * the final result: @Left b@, or
-- * @Right (a,str)@, where @a@ is the next element in the stream, and @str@
-- is a computation to get the rest of the stream.
--
-- Stream is itself a Monad, and provides an operation 'yield' that
-- produces a new element of the stream. This makes it convenient to turn
-- existing monadic computations into streams.
--
-- The idea is that Stream is useful for making a monadic computation
-- that produces values from time to time. This can be used for
-- knitting together two complex monadic operations, so that the
-- producer does not have to produce all its values before the
-- consumer starts consuming them. We make the producer into a
-- Stream, and the consumer pulls on the stream each time it wants a
-- new value.
