I'm a bit lost on this exception and curious about what's going on. Is
there a valid reason for this exception that I am missing? Note the
hard-coded [0..100] could be any Word8 list you want (generated via
arbitrary, , or other) and it gives the same result.
Load the module and perform:
*** Exception: Prelude.head: empty list
> import qualified Data.ByteString as L
> import Test.QuickCheck
> instance Arbitrary L.ByteString where
> arbitrary = do
> return $ L.pack [0..100]
> prop_LPS :: L.ByteString -> Bool
> prop_LPS ps = ps `seq` True
P.S. Same result with GHCi 6.8.2 and 6.8.3.
