So I check my code, all the foldr and foldl and such, to make sure nowhere I create an infinite sequence. Nothing. So I took a deep breath and started the ghci debugger. I'm used to graphical debugger (like Java in Eclipse) but hey I managed to pretty quickly locate the offending function. Only a typo that couldn't be caught by the compiler. Since it's not the first time this has happened to me, here it is:
I tend to not be too comfortable with big one liner functions, so I revert often to several lines after a let instruction to cleanly separate each step of the computation. So when I repeatedly change some structure I tend to get:
fn a =
in fn3 a2
and the typo there was a line like:
a2 = fn2 a2
So I had typed in a2 instead of a1, and the compiler was perfectly happy, I wanted to create an infinite list, right? Er... That wasn't exactly my intention.
So I fixed the typo. Then ran my test. Which passed. Of course.
