#!/usr/bin/env runhaskell
\begin{code}
import Distribution.Simple
main = defaultMain
\end{code}

#!/usr/bin/env runhaskell

> import Distribution.Simple

#!/usr/bin/env runhaskell
import Distribution.Simple
main = defaultMain

## 1 Directory structure

Shouldn't the advise be to let all the source code be collected under src/ and the testing under test/ extra scripts under scripts/ etc.?

## 2 Thanks!

I was putting off (and meaning to get around to) cabalising my software until I saw how easy it was on this page. BTW, I kinda like the birdtracks as is -- kowey 09:20, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
