Sorry, I don't know what that notation means. I see from your previous threads that you know what an XY problem is so I imagine you are sure that using type constraints where the type is not actually constrained is not barking up the wrong tree. It is however contrary to the standard use of constraints, hence the solutions you have found acceptable are limited to further abusing the tools you have.

Maybe you wish to conform the provided values to a range of acceptable ones instead? Perhaps you could make use of coercions in conjunction with your constraints in that case.


The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    This part, I can help with on the technical end. Those are logic symbols, often used in mathy-circumstances (as opposed to specific programming language implementations and operators): see List_of_logic_symbols.
