Problem Solution Examples
compiling and linking an executable --make
ghc -- make Main.hs              --> Main
compiling a file, without linking -c
ghc -c Foo.hs                    --> Foo.hi, Foo.o
generating Assembler code -S
ghc -S Foo.hs                    --> Foo.hi, Foo.s
generating C code -C
ghc -C Foo.hs                    --> Foo.hc, Foo.hi
linking files into an executable -o
ghc -o test Foo.o Bar.o Baz.p    --> test


Problem Solution Examples
checking a definition  :i
Prelude> :i Monad
class Monad m where
  (>>=) :: m a -> (a -> m b) -> m b
  (>>) :: m a -> m b -> m b
  return :: a -> m a
  fail :: String -> m a
        -- Defined in GHC.Base
instance Monad Maybe -- Defined in Data.Maybe
instance Monad IO -- Defined in GHC.IOBase
instance Monad ((->) r) -- Defined in Control.Monad.Instances
instance Monad [] -- Defined in GHC.Base
checking a type  :t
Prelude> :t "Hello"
"Hello" :: [Char]

Prelude> :t length
length :: [a] -> Int
loading a file  :l
Prelude> :l Foo.hs
[1 of 1] Compiling Foo              ( Foo.hs, interpreted )
Ok, modules loaded: Foo.
