The IOTest.scala Scala example source code

package scalaz
package effect

import syntax.foldable._

object IOTest extends SpecLite {
  "IO" should {
    // as reported in <>
    // fix in bb4ebd650
    "not stack overflow" in {
      var counter: Long = 0L
      val action: IO[Unit] = Stream.from(1).take(40000).traverse_(i => IO { counter += i })
      counter must_== 800020000L

  "Catchable[IO]" should {

    val C = Catchable[IO]
    val err = new Error("oh noes")
    val bad =[Int](err)

    "throw exceptions captured via fail()" in {
      try {
        fail("should have thrown")
      } catch {
        case t: Throwable => t must_== err

    "catch exceptions captured via fail()" in {
      C.attempt(bad).unsafePerformIO must_== -\/(err)

    "catch ambient exceptions" in {
      C.attempt(IO(throw err)).unsafePerformIO must_== -\/(err)

    "properly handle success" in {
      C.attempt(IO(3)).unsafePerformIO must_== \/-(3)
