### #Comonad Source

`class (Extend w) <= Comonad w where`

`Comonad`

extends the `Extend`

class with the `extract`

function
which extracts a value, discarding the comonadic context.

`Comonad`

is the dual of `Monad`

, and `extract`

is the dual of `pure`

.

Laws:

- Left Identity:
`extract <<= xs = xs`

- Right Identity:
`extract (f <<= xs) = f xs`

#### Members

`extract :: forall a. w a -> a`

## Re-exports from **Control.**Extend

### #Extend Source

`class (Functor w) <= Extend w where`

The `Extend`

class defines the extension operator `(<<=)`

which extends a local context-dependent computation to
a global computation.

`Extend`

is the dual of `Bind`

, and `(<<=)`

is the dual of
`(>>=)`

.

Laws:

- Associativity:
`extend f <<< extend g = extend (f <<< extend g)`

#### Members

`extend :: forall a b. (w a -> b) -> w a -> w b`

#### Instances

### #(=<=) Source

Operator alias for Control.Extend.composeCoKleisliFlipped *(right-associative / precedence 1)*

## Re-exports from **Data.**Functor

### #Functor Source

`class Functor f where`

A `Functor`

is a type constructor which supports a mapping operation
`map`

.

`map`

can be used to turn functions `a -> b`

into functions
`f a -> f b`

whose argument and return types use the type constructor `f`

to represent some computational context.

Instances must satisfy the following laws:

- Identity:
`map identity = identity`

- Composition:
`map (f <<< g) = map f <<< map g`

#### Members

`map :: forall b a. (a -> b) -> f a -> f b`

#### Instances

### #void Source

`void :: forall a f. Functor f => f a -> f Unit`

The `void`

function is used to ignore the type wrapped by a
`Functor`

, replacing it with `Unit`

and keeping only the type
information provided by the type constructor itself.

`void`

is often useful when using `do`

notation to change the return type
of a monadic computation:

```
main = forE 1 10 \n -> void do
print n
print (n * n)
```
