I’m trying to implement a Fisher-Yates shuffle of some data. This algorithm is easy to implement for one-dimensional arrays. However, I need to be able to shuffle data in a two-dimensional matrix.An approach which I think could generalize nicely to higher dimensional arrays is to convert my arbitrarily dimensioned matrix to a single-dimensional array of indices, shuffle those, and then reorganize the matrix by swapping the element at each index of this index array with the element at the index of the element of the index array. In other words, to take a 2×2 matrix such as:1 2 3 4I would convert this into this “array”:[(0, (0,0)), (1, (0,1)), (2, ((1,0)), (3, (1,1))]This I would then scramble per normal int

Consider the code below : {-# LANGUAGE MultiParamTypeClasses,FlexibleInstances,FunctionalDependencies,UndecidableInstances,FlexibleContexts #-} class Foo a c | a -> c instance Foo Int Float f :: (Foo Int a) => Int -> a f = undefinedNow when I see the inferred type of f in ghci > :t f > f :: Int -> FloatNow If I add the following code g :: Int -> Float g = undefined h :: (Foo Int a) => Int -> a h = gI get the error Could
