void m computes m and discrards the result.

val sequence : unit t list -> unit t

sequence xs computes a sequence of computations xs in the left to right order.

val forever : 'a t -> 'b t

forever xs creates a computationt that never returns.

module Fn : sig ... end

Various function combinators lifted into the Kleisli category.

module Pair : sig ... end

Lifts collection interface into the monad.

module List : Collection.S with type 'a t := 'a list

The Monad.Collection.S interface for lists

module Seq : Collection.S with type 'a t := 'a Core_kernel.Sequence.t

The Monad.Collection.S interface for sequences

m >>= f is bind m f

val (>>|) : 'a t -> ( 'a -> 'b ) -> 'b t

include Core_kernel.Monad.S with type 'a t := 'a t
val (>>=) : 'a t -> ( 'a -> 'b t ) -> 'b t

t >>= f returns a computation that sequences the computations represented by two monad elements. The resulting computation first does t to yield a value v, and then runs the computation returned by f v.

val (>>|) : 'a t -> ( 'a -> 'b ) -> 'b t

t >>| f is t >>= (fun a -> return (f a)).

module Monad_infix : sig ... end
val bind : 'a t -> f:( 'a -> 'b t ) -> 'b t

bind t ~f = t >>= f

val return : 'a -> 'a t

return v returns the (trivial) computation that returns v.

val map : 'a t -> f:( 'a -> 'b ) -> 'b t

map t ~f is t >>| f.

val join : 'a t t -> 'a t

join t is t >>= (fun t' -> t').

val ignore_m : 'a t -> unit t

ignore_m t is map t ~f:(fun _ -> ()). ignore_m used to be called ignore, but we decided that was a bad name, because it shadowed the widely used Caml.ignore. Some monads still do let ignore = ignore_m for historical reasons.

val all : 'a t list -> 'a list t
val all_unit : unit t list -> unit t

Like all, but ensures that every monadic value in the list produces a unit value, all of which are discarded rather than being collected into a list.

val all_ignore : unit t list -> unit t
module Let_syntax : sig ... end

These are convenient to have in scope when programming with a monad:

val put : Bap.Std.project -> unit t

put s changes the current state to s

val get : unit -> Bap.Std.project t

get s gets the current state

val gets : ( Bap.Std.project -> 'r ) -> 'r t

gets p projects the current state with the function p

val update : ( Bap.Std.project -> Bap.Std.project ) -> unit t

update f updates the current state with the function f

module Local : State with type 'a m := 'a t and type 'a t := 'a state

Local state of the machine.

module Global : State with type 'a m := 'a t and type 'a t := 'a state

Global state shared across all machine clones.

val raise : exn -> 'a t

raise exn raises the machine exception exn, intiating an abonormal control flow

val catch : 'a t -> ( exn -> 'a t ) -> 'a t

catch x f creates a computation that is equal to x if it terminates normally, and to f e if x terminates abnormally with the exception e.

val project : Bap.Std.project t

project is a computation that results with the project data structure. Note, that Machine is a State monad with the env type equal to project, thus project is a shortcut to get ().

This function is always evaluated in the global context, i.e., there is only one project that is shared by all machine forks.

You can use put project to update the project data structure.

program program representation.

The same as gets Project.program.

val arch : Bap.Std.arch t

arch code architecture.

The same as gets Project.arch.

val args : string array t

args program command line arguments.

val envp : string array t

envp program environment variables.
