  • HuGs = Haskell User´s Gofer System, one of the Haskell implementations.
  • The Hugs home page is
  • Hugs 98 is a functional programming system based on Haskell 98, the de facto standard for non-strict functional programming languages. Hugs 98 provides an almost complete implementation of Haskell 98.
  • Hugs provides most of the common extensions including scoped variables, multiparameter typeclasses, foreign function interface, etc.
  • Hugs is exceptionally portable. If Hugs can't be installed on your machine, report it as a bug!
  • Hugs comes with almost all the same libraries as GHC.
  • Hugs and GHC both work on portability between the two - most code that works on one compiler works on the other without change.

Actually, on Ubuntu Linux hugs is packed with more libraries:
