1 GHC Documentation

The documentation below relates to using GHC. If you are interested in developing GHC, head over to the GHC Developer Wiki.

These documents relate to the latest version of GHC. For earlier versions click the relevant version on the downloads page.


1.1 Online documentation

The User's Guide
The User's Guide has all you need to know about using GHC: command line options, language extensions, GHCi, etc.
Hierarchical Libraries
Documentation for the hierarchical libraries that come with GHC.
(Old) Haskell Libraries
Previous versions of GHC (before version 5.04) came with a suite of libraries known as hslibs, aka the Hugs-GHC libraries. As we are in the process of moving towards using hierarchical libraries for everything, many of these libraries have moved over to the new packages in the hierarchical libraries above. We still provide the old hslibs libraries for backwards compatibility and also for those libraries which have yet to move into the hierarchy. For libraries which have moved, the documentation contains a pointer to the location in the new libraries. NOTE: These libraries are scheduled for removal in GHC 6.6. See also: Edison (part of hslibs/data).
FAQ
Cabal
An infrastructure for building and distributing Haskell software.
GHC Building Guide
Information on how to build GHC from sources, access the CVS repository, and port GHC to a new platform.
