Version 6 (modified by benl, 7 years ago)




  1. A recent version of GHC.

It's been tested with at least 6.10.1, 6.10.4 and 6.12.1
We use a few GHC specific extensions, so it's unlikely to work with other compilers.

  1. A recent version of GCC.

It's been tested with at least 4.0.1 and 4.1.2.

  1. If you want to work on the lexer you will need the Alex lexer generator
  1. The graphical demos depend on libxv but most Linux distros, and Mac OSX already have this.


  1. Build the compiler, runtime system, external libraries and base libraries.
    $ make
  1. As above, but also build source docs and run all the regression tests.
    $ make total

More useful build targets are listed at the top of the Makefile
