[Haskell-cafe] Quickcheck: Help on non trivial test

I am using quicheck for some kind of non trivial tests.
The general form of these tesst is summarized by the following code.
-- Function to be tested. Given a list of splitting functions, split the
process :: [a] -> [[a] -> [a]] -> [a]
process l splitFuns =
List.foldl proc l splitFuns
proc l splitFun = splitFun l
-- a split function generator
splitFunGen :: Gen ([a] -> [a])
splitFunGen = return $ proc
proc l = let splitPos = List.length l `div` 2 --
Problem I would like splitPos = some random value between [0 and length of
in fst $ List.splitAt splitPos l
splitFunsGen :: Gen [[a] -> [a]]
splitFunsGen = vectorOf 20 splitFunGen
instance Show a => Show ([a] -> [a]) where
show _ = " a split fun "
r = quickCheck $ forAll splitFunsGen prop
prop splitFuns = let l = process [1..100] splitFuns
in List.length l >= 0 -- dummy test here for the
sake of example
The process to be tested takes a list that is randomly perturbated
(spitFuns). The result of each perturbation is fed into the next
Ideally I would like the perturbating function to depend on the previous
perturbated list (see computation of splitPos in splitFunGen).
I am not sure how I could use quickcheck in this case.
Has anyone a better idea?
