#10582 new bug

Tiny bug in lexer around lexing banana brackets

Priority: low Milestone:
Component: Compiler Version: 7.10.1
Keywords: Arrows Cc:

If I say

{-# LANGUAGE Arrows #-}

(|:) :: Int -> Int -> Int
(|:) = (+)

I get

/Users/rae/temp/Bug.hs:3:3: parse error on input ‘:’

Trying this with other operators, like (|+), works fine.

The problem is that notFollowedBySymbol in Lexer.x is slightly wrong.

I will fix in ongoing (mostly unrelated) work.

This won't be fixed in 7.10.3.

This bug won't be fixed in 8.0.1; bumping to 8.2.

Given that 8.2.1-rc1 is imminent, I'm bumping these off to the 8.4

Milestone: 8.4.1

These tasks won't happen for 8.4 and have been sitting at low priority for quite some time. Consequently I am un-milestoning them. Don't let this stop you, the interested reader, from picking one up, however.
