Ticket #101 (closed defect: wontfix)
haddock-2.4.2 shipped with ghc-6.10.2 is extremely slow
|Reported by:||maeder||Owned by:|
Calling haddock for our Hets project http://www.dfki.de/sks/hets takes around 40 minutes after upgrading to ghc-6.10.2. (haddock 2.3.0 with ghc-6.10.1 took below 1 minute.)
Unfortunately, reproducing this behavior requires to install many packages. You need fgl, xml, and time to compile anything at all within Hets.
You need the uni packages and hxtfilter-8.2.0 to cause haddock to become slow. (Look inside Hets/INSTALL)
Within Hets I call:
cabal configure -v -f -gtkglade -f -programatica -f -shellac -f -haxml -f -tabular -f -tar
to avoid dependencies on even further packages.
Compiling 433 files using "time cabal build" takes:
real 4m34.159s user 4m21.308s sys 0m7.456s
Running now haddock using "time cabal haddock --executables" takes about 40 minutes
I'll attach the corresponding log files. (The sources contain one template haskell file Hets/SoftFOL/MathServCommunication.hs)
