## Instructions

**Objective**

Write a Haskell assignment program that allows users to manipulate images.

## Requirements and Specifications

In this part of the exercise, you will build a small graphics library. Pictures will be represented as functions from 'Point's to values: -}

type Picture a = Point -> a

{- where a Point is an (x,y) coordinate: -}

type Point = (Double, Double)

{- 'Picture's are parameterised by the type of data that can appear at each coordinate. For example, to represent pictures where we only care whether a pixel is set or not we might use the type:

Picture Bool

we will use this type as a type of 'masks' for filtering other pictures. We could think of these as pictures that have two colours: True for black and False for white (or the other way round -- until we render them, these pictures are only in our heads). -}

{- For 'real' images, we want every point in the coordinate space to be associated with a colour. We will represent colours as their RGB components, with an Alpha channel for transparency. The type for representing colours with transparency is: -}

data RGBA = MkRGBA { redChannel :: Double

, greenChannel :: Double

, blueChannel :: Double

, alphaChannel :: Double

}

deriving Show

{- where I have named the fields for documentation purposes. Each channel is only meant to take values between 0 and 1, and we'l have to be careful to make sure that it stays that way below.

A colour image is now represented as a value of type:

Picture RGBA

Expanding out the definition of 'Picture', we see that a picture isa function from (x,y) coordinates to RGBA colour values.

Let's give ourselves some colours: black, white, red, green, and

blue. Note that all these colours have the alpha channel set to 1

-- they are fully opaque. -}

{- HIGHER ORDER PROGRAMMING -}
{----------------------------------------------------------------------}
{- This exercise is focused on programming with "Higher order"
functions, as introduced in Week 03.
A higher order function is a function that takes other functions as
input. The name 'higher order' comes from the following
classification of entities that one might find in a programming
language:
- 0th order entities are "data" (basically anything that can be
printed out)
- 1st order entities are functions that take "data" to "data"
- 2nd order entities are functions that take (functions that take
"data" to "data") to "data"
- 3rd order entities are functions that take 2nd order entities to
"data"
- .. and so on
It is rare to see anything above 3rd order, but it can occur.
Programming with higher order functions is sometimes called
programming with "first class" functions. This references the idea
that functions in Haskell are values, just like any other
value. They can be stored in data structures, returned by
functions, and passed as arguments to functions. That is, they are
'first class' elements of the language, instead of being "second
class" elements with a restricted set of operations.
In other languages, functions that take other functions as input
are often said to take a 'callback' function. Examples include
methods that perform work asynchronously and call the given
function when the work is done. Another example is the
'java.util.List.sort' method:
https://docs.oracle.com/javase/9/docs/api/java/util/List.html#sort-java.util.Comparator-
which takes a 'Comparator' argument, which is (in Java terminology)
a 'Functional Interface', which is essentially a function. We'll
see an example of a sorting function that takes a compare as an
argument later on. -}

'sum' and 'len': -}
sumDoubles :: [Double] -> Double
sumDoubles = foldr (\x sum -> x + sum) 0
len :: [a] -> Integer
len = foldr (\_ l -> l + 1) 0
{- Putting these together, we can implement 'avg' to compute the average
(mean) of a list of numbers: -}
avg :: [Double] -> Double
avg xs = sumDoubles xs / fromInteger (len xs)
{- Neat as this function is, it is not as efficient as it could be. It
traverses the input list twice: once to compute the sum, and then
again to compute the length. It would be better if we had a single
pass that computed the sum and length simultaneously and returned a
pair.

{- PART 2 : COMPARISON OPERATORS -}
{----------------------------------------------------------------------}
{- The Haskell standard library predefines a type 'Ordering' for
describing ordering relationships between values:
> :info Ordering
data Ordering = LT | EQ | GT
[...]
This type is used by the 'Ord' type class. We used the 'Ord' type
class in Lecture 04 to write sorting functions. If a type is a
member of the Ord type class we can compare values of that
type. This is what allows us to use '<' and '>='. The Ord type
class also defines a function 'compare':
> :info Ord
class Eq a => Ord a where
compare :: a -> a -> Ordering
[...]
So 'compare' returns the appropriate result for its two
arguments. For example:
> compare 1 2
LT
> compare 2 1
GT
> compare 1 1
EQ
Sometimes, the default ordering for a type is not the one we
want. For example, we might want to sort the list into descending
order. Below, we will write sorting functions that take the
ordering to use as an explicit argument.
To do this, we need to isolate the idea of a thing that compares
two values of the same type. We will use first class functions to
do this.
A 'Comparator' in Haskell is a function that takes two values and
returns an 'Ordering' (satisfying some properties). Let's make a
type synonym for Comparators: -}
type Comparator a = a -> a -> Ordering
{- Every type that is a member of the 'Ord' type class has a default
comparator. We just write 'compare' for this, and Haskell's type
inference mechanism will work out which one to use. However, the
default comparator might not be the ordering that we wish to
use. We'll now see how to build new comparators out of old ones.
(To be a proper comparator, we ought to also have some properties
for any comparator 'cmp':
1. cmp x y == invertOrdering (cmp y x)
2. if (cmp x y == LT) and (cmp y z == LT) then (cmp x z == LT)
3. if (cmp x y == EQ) then, for all z, (cmp x z == cmp y z)
We won't get into worrying about these for this exercise though.) -}
{- 2.2.0 Inverting Comparators.
We can invert an 'Ordering': -}
invertOrdering :: Ordering -> Ordering
invertOrdering LT = GT
invertOrdering EQ = EQ
invertOrdering GT = LT
{- Write a function that takes as input a comparator and returns a
comparator that implements the reverse ordering. Use
'invertOrdering'. -}
invert :: Comparator a -> Comparator a
invert cmp x y = cmp y x
{- For example:
> invert compare 1 2
GT
> invert compare 2 1
LT
> invert compare 1 1

-{- {- 2.2.1 Transforming Comparators.
If we have a 'Comparator a' and a way of turning 'b's into 'a's, we
can build a 'Comparator b'. Implement this: -}
on :: Comparator a -> (b -> a) -> Comparator b
on cmp f = (\x y -> cmp (f x) (f y))
{- For example, to compare pairs on their first element, we might write:
compare `on` fst :: Ord a => Comparator (a,b)
Or to compare lists by their length:
compare `on` length :: Comparator [a]
-}
{- 2 MARKS -}
{- 2.2.2 Sorting with a comparator.
Here is a Haskell implementation of merge sort that is similar to
the one we saw in the Week 02 tutorial questions. 'mergeSort'
handles the main recursion described above, 'split' does the
splitting, and 'merge' does the merging.
Try the component functions on a few examples to get a feel for how
they work. Note that 'merge' only works as expected when the inputs
are already sorted. -}
mergeSort :: Ord a => [a] -> [a]
mergeSort [] = []
mergeSort [x] = [x]
mergeSort xs = merge (mergeSort xs1) (mergeSort xs2)

merge [] ys = ys
merge xs [] = xs
merge (x:xs) (y:ys) = if x < y then x : merge xs (y:ys) else y : merge (x:xs) ys
{- 'mergeSort' as written above relies on the implementation of 'Ord'
for the type 'a' to do the comparisons. Rewrite 'mergeSort' so that
it takes as input a 'Comparator a', instead of relying on the
default one from the 'Ord' instance. You will need to also write a
new definition of 'merge', called 'mergeWith'. -}
mergeSortWith :: Comparator a -> [a] -> [a]
mergeSortWith _ [] = []
mergeSortWith _ [x] = [x]
mergeSortWith comp xs = mergeWith comp (mergeSortWith comp xs1) (mergeSortWith comp xs2)

mergeWith _ xs [] = xs
mergeWith comp (x:xs) (y:ys) = if (comp x y) == LT then
x : mergeWith comp xs (y:ys)
else
y : mergeWith comp (x:xs) ys
{- Make sure you don't accidentally call 'mergeSort' in the recursive
calls!
It should be the case that 'mergeSortWith compare' always gives the
same answer as 'mergeSort'. For example:
> mergeSortWith compare [5,2,3,4,1]
[1,2,3,4,5]
> mergeSortWith compare ["c", "aaa", "bb"]
["aaa","bb","c"]
But when we use the functions above, we get different orderings:
> mergeSortWith (invert compare) [5,2,3,4,1]
[5,4,3,2,1]
> mergeSortWith (compare `on` length) ["c", "aaa", "bb"]
["c","bb","aaa"]

{- 2.2.3 Dictionary ordering
Write a function that takes two comparators, one that compares 'a's
and one hat compares 'b's and makes a comparator for pairs '(a,b)',
such that for any two pairs (a1,b1), (a2, b2):
- if a1 < a2 then (a1,b1) < (a2,b2)
- if a1 > a2 then (a1,b1) > (a2,b2)
- if a1 = a2 then (a1,b1) and (a2,b2) are ordered however b1, b2 are
(this is called "lexicographic ordering", or "dictionary ordering")
For example:
> (pair compare compare) (1,2) (1,3)
LT
> (pair compare compare) (2,2) (1,3)
GT
> (pair (invert compare) compare) (1,2) (1,3)
LT
> (pair (invert compare) compare) (2,2) (1,3)

hand. You will also find the 'length', 'snd', and 'compare'
functions useful. -}

{- PART 3 : PICTURES -}
{----------------------------------------------------------------------}
{- In this part of the exercise, you will build a small graphics
library. Pictures will be represented as functions from 'Point's to
values: -}
type Picture a = Point -> a
{- where a Point is an (x,y) coordinate: -}
type Point = (Double, Double)
{- 'Picture's are parameterised by the type of data that can appear at
each coordinate. For example, to represent pictures where we only
care whether a pixel is set or not we might use the type:
Picture Bool
we will use this type as a type of 'masks' for filtering other
pictures. We could think of these as pictures that have two
colours: True for black and False for white (or the other way round
-- until we render them, these pictures are only in our heads). -}
{- For 'real' images, we want every point in the coordinate space to be
associated with a colour. We will represent colours as their RGB
components, with an Alpha channel for transparency. The type for
representing colours with transparency is: -}
data RGBA = MkRGBA { redChannel :: Double
, greenChannel :: Double
, blueChannel :: Double
, alphaChannel :: Double

channel is only meant to take values between 0 and 1, and we'll
have to be careful to make sure that it stays that way below.
A colour image is now represented as a value of type:

Expanding out the definition of 'Picture', we see that a picture is
a function from (x,y) coordinates to RGBA colour values.
Let's give ourselves some colours: black, white, red, green, and
blue. Note that all these colours have the alpha channel set to 1
-- they are fully opaque. -}
black :: RGBA

white :: RGBA
white = MkRGBA 1 1 1 1
red :: RGBA
red = MkRGBA 1 0 0 1
green :: RGBA
green = MkRGBA 0 1 0 1
blue :: RGBA
blue = MkRGBA 0 0 1 1
{- And the lack of colour (the alphaChannel is set to 0). -}
clear :: RGBA
clear = MkRGBA 0 0 0 0
{- And a way of modifying a colour's opacity: 'opacity f c' makes the
colour 'c' transparent by a factor of 'f' (which should be between
0 and 1). -}
opacity :: Double -> RGBA -> RGBA
opacity factor (MkRGBA r g b a) = MkRGBA r g b (a * factor)
{- So 'opacity 0.5 red' is half transparent red. -}
{- The first picture we'll make is one that 'green' everywhere: -}
greenEverywhere :: Picture RGBA
greenEverywhere (x,y) = green
{- See? 'greenEverywhere' is a function representing a picture that
takes a coordinate (x,y) and always returns the colour 'green', no
matter what the coordinate is. A slightly more complex picture is
one that is blue when the x coordinate is less than 0, and green
when it is greater or equal 0: -}
blueAndGreen :: Picture RGBA
blueAndGreen (x,y) = if x < 0 then blue else green
{- Making pictures like this and thinking about them is all very well,
but it is much easier to see what is going on if we can look at the
pictures we are creating. At the bottom of this file, I have
defined a function 'writeBMP' that takes a filename and a 'Picture
RGBA' and writes it to a file in the BMP format. Most image viewers
will then be able to read this format and display it on screen.
For example (in GHCi):
*Ex2> writeBMP "test.bmp" blueAndGreen
will write a file called "test.bmp" in the same directory as you
started GHCi in. Opening this file in an image viewer will let you
see the image. Values of type 'Picture RGBA' can represent very
large images (up to the limits of the 'Double' type), so 'writeBMP'
only takes the coordinates in the range (-100,99) in the x and y
directions. The origin (0,0) is at the centre of the image. -}
{- Constructing pictures directly by writing a function from coordinates
to colours is possible but difficult. It is much more fun to build
pictures up by combining them together. -}
{- 2.3.0 Everywhere.
Let's start by generalising the 'greenEverywhere' picture from
above. Write a function that takes a value and returns that value
at all coordinates. -}

a completely red image, for instance. -}
{- 1 MARK -}
{- 2.3.1 Shapes.
To draw shapes, we won't do them using colours directly. Instead,
we will create 'masks' that we will use to 'cut' shapes out of
other pictures. As mentioned above, a mask is a 'Picture Bool'. We
will describe some basic shapes using masks. For example, here is a
function that generates a circular mask of a given radius: -}
circle :: Double -> Picture Bool
circle r = \(x, y) -> x*x + y*y <= r*r
{- So 'circle r' assigns 'True' to all points within distance 'r' of the
origin, and 'False' otherwise. -}
{- Define a function rectangle that takes a width 'w' and a height 'h'
and returns a picture assigning 'True' to all coordinates within
the rectangle of width 'w' and height 'h' centred on the origin,
and 'False' outside the rectangle. Note that the maximum distance
along the x-axis from the origin is *half* the width, and similar
for the height. -}
rectangle :: Double -> Double -> Picture Bool
rectangle w h = \(x, y) -> (x >= -w/2 && x < w/2) && (y >= -h/2 && y < h/2)

the rectangle twice as large as it ought to be. -}

{- 2.3.2 Boolean operations on Pictures.
Define the function 'pictureAND' that generates a new picture of
'Bool's, where the boolean for a point is the "and" (&&) of the
booleans at the same point in the two input pictures. Similarly,
define 'pictureOR' and 'pictureNOT'. -}
pictureAND :: Picture Bool -> Picture Bool -> Picture Bool
pictureAND p q = \(x, y) -> p (x, y) && q (x, y)

{- 2.3.4 Colouring in.
The shape functions don't return 'Picture's with RGBA colours, so
we can't use 'writeBMP' to look at them directly. We have to
translate 'Bool's to actual colours.
Write a function that takes a 'Bitmap Bool' and two colours and
produces a 'Bitmap RGBA' that uses the first colour when the mask
is 'True' and the second when it is 'False': -}

colourIn p c1 c2 = \(x, y) -> if p (x, y) then c1 else c2
{- For example,
*Ex2> writeBMP "test.bmp" (colourIn (circle 100) green black)

'colourIn' is an example of a function that transforms a picture in
a fixed way at every point. This is a pattern that happens over and
over, so it is worth making a higher order function that captures
the essence of this pattern.

a Picture of 'a's and produces a Picture of 'b's by applying the
function 'f' at every point. -}

two argument function to two pictures simultaneously. Define a
function 'mapPicture2' that for each point 'pt' uses the given
function to combine the values of the two given pictures at 'pt': -}

We could now go on and define mapPicture3, mapPicture4 and so on
for combining more and more pictures.
Instead of doing that, we can define a single function that can be
used repeatedly. If we allow the function being used to transform
the image to vary, as well as the argument, then we have a much
more flexible arrangement. Define a function that takes a picture
of /functions/ and a picture of /arguments/ and applies the
functions to the arguments at each point. -}

{- Blending. Since we are representing colours with alpha channels for
transparency, we can overlay one picture on top of another, letting
the background picture show through the transparent bits of the
foreground picture. We represent this as the ability to blend RGBA
colours together. RGBA colours with alpha blending form a monoid
(Week 05): we have the completely clear colour 'RGBA 0 0 0 0' and
the monoid operation is alpha blending. The exact details of alpha
blending are not important here. See the following blog post for a
derivation of the definition from first principles:
https://lukepalmer.wordpress.com/2010/02/05/associative-alpha-blending/
Since we have an associative operation on RGBA colours, we are
justified in declaring RGBA an instance of the Semigroup typeclass
(Week 05), allowing us to combine colours: -}
instance Semigroup RGBA where
(MkRGBA r1 g1 b1 0) <> (MkRGBA r2 g2 b2 0) = mempty
(MkRGBA r1 g1 b1 a1) <> (MkRGBA r2 g2 b2 a2) = MkRGBA r g b a
where
a = a1 + a2 - a1*a2
r = (a1*r1 + (1-a1)*a2*r2) / a
g = (a1*g1 + (1-a1)*a2*g2) / a
b = (a1*b1 + (1-a1)*a2*b2) / a
{- We can now write 'colour1 <> colour2' to blend colour1 and
colour2. For example, blending 'red' and 'green' gives us just red:
*Ex2> red <> green
MkRGBA {redChannel = 1.0, greenChannel = 0.0, blueChannel = 0.0, alphaChannel = 1.0}
because the "top" colour red is fully opaque. If we lower its
opacity, then we get a mixture of red and green:
*Ex2> opacity 0.5 red <> green
MkRGBA {redChannel = 0.5, greenChannel = 0.5, blueChannel = 0.0, alphaChannel = 1.0}
A Monoid is a Semigroup with a "zero" element. The "zero" for
colours is the completely transparent colour: -}

{- By default, mappend = (<>) -}
{- 2.3.9 Blending pictures.
Use the '<>' function on any Semigroup and 'mapPicture2' to write a

{- PART 4 : PROCESSES -}
{----------------------------------------------------------------------}
{- This part of the exercise generalises the communicating processes
from Exercise 1 to allow processes that send and recieve data of
any type, not just booleans. These processes are also a kind of
tree, except that now the choices after an input are represented by
a function, instead of a branch for 'True' and a branch for
'False'. These processes can also return a final value.
I'll set things up, then it'll be your turn.
'Process x a' is the type of processes that send and recieve values
of type 'x' and terminate with a value of type 'a'.
For example, we could think of simplified Unix processes that can
only talk to Standard Input and Standard Output as values of type
'Process Word8 Int'. They send and recieve 8-bit bytes
(i.e. 'char's) and terminate with an int-value exit status. -}

is. Using functions instead of explicitly enumerating the cases
leads to significantly smaller descriptions of processes in most
cases. -}

{- 3.4.8 Testing Equality of Processes.
Let's say that we want to write a function that tests two processes
for equality -- that is they do the same input and output
operations, and end with the same values, for all possible
inputs. We want to write a function of type:
eqProcess :: Process x () -> Process x () -> Bool
Such a function would be very helpful for debugging processes. For
example, we could discover that there is more than one way of
writing the same process:
eqProcess echo (input `sequ` output) == True
Unfortunately, it is not possible in general to write such a
function that compares for equality. Roughly speaking, this is
because if the type of inputs 'x' has infinitely many possible
values, there is no way to test that both processes handle all
infinitely many values in the same way.
However, if we restrict the possible values that are input and
output by the process to be a type with only finitely many values,
for example 'Bool' only has the values 'True' and 'False', then we
can decide equivalence between two processes.
Complete the missing cases (the bits that are 'undefined') in the
following function definition to write a function that decides
equality of two processes. -}
eqProcess :: Process Bool () -> Process Bool () -> Bool
eqProcess (End ()) (End ()) =
True -- are these processes equal?
eqProcess (Output b1 k1) (Output b2 k2) =
(b1 == b2) && (eqProcess k1 k2)
-- do they output the same thing, and do they
-- do the same thing after that?
eqProcess (Input k1) (Input k2) =
(eqProcess (k1 True) (k2 True)) && (eqProcess (k1 False) (k2 False))
-- what are the possible input values of type Bool?
eqProcess _ _ =
False
-- if they don't agree on 'End'ing, 'Input'ing or
-- 'Output'ing, then they aren't equal
{- Try it on the 'echo' process. The following example is one that
should return 'False': eqProcess echo (input `sequ` (\_ -> End ())) == False

The file format is relatively simple: there is a header describing
the image (size, resolution, colour layout), followed by the pixel
data. We are not using any compression. Most of the header is '0'
because we are just relying on the defaults for colour space
correction and gamma.
The 'LE' suffixes on all the word16/32 calls signify that BMP is a
'little endian' format, as would be expected from its origins on
Intel x86 systems.
The sampling and quantization of the bitmap are quite naive. Taking
the average of surrounding pixels would probably produce "more
