Instructions

Given a string representing a matrix of numbers, return the rows and columns of that matrix.

So given a string with embedded newlines like:

9 8 7
5 3 2
6 6 7

representing this matrix:

    1  2  3
  |---------
1 | 9  8  7
2 | 5  3  2
3 | 6  6  7

your code should be able to spit out:

  • A list of the rows, reading each row left-to-right while moving top-to-bottom across the rows,
  • A list of the columns, reading each column top-to-bottom while moving from left-to-right.

The rows for our example matrix:

  • 9, 8, 7
  • 5, 3, 2
  • 6, 6, 7

And its columns:

  • 9, 5, 6
  • 8, 3, 6
  • 7, 2, 7

To complete this exercise, you need to create the data type Matrix, with Eq and Show instances, and implement the following functions:

  • cols
  • column
  • flatten
  • fromList
  • fromString
  • reshape
  • row
  • rows
  • shape
  • transpose

You will find a dummy data declaration and type signatures already in place, but it is up to you to define the functions and create a meaningful data type, newtype or type synonym.

No validation of input is required. Let it fail if the matrix is not rectangular, invalid chars are encountered, etc.

shape is (rows, cols)
