Is there some way to get a "negative" whenmod?

whenmod n m f will apply f when the cycle number `mod` n > m. Is there some simple way to do the opposite, i.e., apply f when the cycle number `mod` n <= m?

whenmod n m f is defined (https://github.com/tidalcycles/Tidal/blob/main/src/Sound/Tidal/UI.hs#L555) via the more general when:

when (\ t -> mod t n >= m) f

so one could copy this definition, and change the condition, to when (\ t -> mod t n < m) f.

Also, I think something like this should hold

opposite-whenmod n m f = rotL (n-m) . whenmod n (n-m)  f . rotR (n-m)

but that's perhaps more tricky than useful.

NB: the dot is for function composition, (f . g . h) x means f $ g $ h x

Thanks for the reply.

opposite-whenmod n m f = rotL (n-m) . whenmod n (n-m) f . rotR (n-m) gives me a type error for the 2nd arg of whenmod (it wants Int not Time).

And this is maybe a good opportunity for me to ask my other question. . . My approach to a reverse whenmod was literally to reverse the pattern before and after whenmod. I was thinking along these lines:

whennotmod n m f = outside n rev . whenmod n (n-m) f . outside n rev.

But I end up with a similar type error on the the 2nd arg of whenmod (wants Int not Pattern Time). I haven't been to correctly cast that argument, but I assume this should be possible.

Sorry. I only tested with concrete numbers, not variables, so this works:

 oppwhenmod83 f = rotL (8-3) . whenmod 8 (8-3) f . rotR (8-3)

With variables:

oppwhenmod n m f = rotL (fromIntegral $ n-m) . whenmod n (n-m) f . rotR (fromIntegral $ n-m)

This works

whennotmod n m f = outside (pure $ fromIntegral n) rev . whenmod n (n-m) f . outside (pure $ fromIntegral n) rev

Thanks - I had tried fromIntegral, but it was pure that I was missing

I've using this:
whenmod' n m f = rotL (fromIntegral $ n-m) . whenmod n (n-m) f . rotR (fromIntegral $ n-m)
quite a lot in my code recently.

But when I updated from1.6.1 to 1.7.2, this seems to have broken. I get the following error:

• No instance for (Integral (Ratio Integer))
    arising from a use of ‘fromIntegral’

Could anyone offer a suggestion? Nothing I've tried has worked.
