+ <longdescription>
+ @text-show@ offers a replacement for the @Show@ typeclass intended
+ for use with @Text@ instead of @String@s. This package was created
+ in the spirit of
+ @&lt;http://hackage.haskell.org/package/bytestring-show bytestring-show&gt;@.
+
+ At the moment, @text-show@ provides instances for most data
+ types in the @&lt;http://hackage.haskell.org/package/array array&gt;@,
+ @&lt;http://hackage.haskell.org/package/base base&gt;@,
+ @&lt;http://hackage.haskell.org/package/bytestring bytestring&gt;@, and
+ @&lt;http://hackage.haskell.org/package/text text&gt;@ packages.
+ Therefore, much of the source code for @text-show@ consists of
+ borrowed code from those packages in order to ensure that the
+ behaviors of @Show@ and @TextShow@ coincide.
+
+ For most uses, simply importing "TextShow"
+ will suffice:
+
+ @
+ module Main where
+
+ import TextShow
+
+ main :: IO ()
+ main = printT (Just \"Hello, World!\")
+ @
+
+ If you desire it, there are also monomorphic versions of the @showb@
+ function available in the submodules of "TextShow". See the
+ &lt;https://github.com/RyanGlScott/text-show/wiki/Naming-conventions naming conventions&gt;
+ page for more information.
+
+ Support for automatically deriving @TextShow@ instances can be found
+ in the "TextShow.TH" and "TextShow.Generic" modules. If you don't
+ know which one to use, use "TextShow.TH".
