Haskell Interests

Compilers: Currently make lots of use of Alex and Happy.

Currently working on a compiler and simulator for a quantum programming language, using Gtk2Hs as the visualization tool.

Haskell mode for XEmacs

I use Haskell mode for emacs on XEmacs. So far, on all the linux systems that i have tried it on (admittedly, only Ubuntu and Debian), there is a system function missing that interferes with automatic indenting.

To fix this, find where the haskell mode package is installed on your system. (Usually /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/haskell-mode). Edit the file haskell-mode.el and add the lines:


  ;; If `line-end-position' isn't available provide one.
  (unless (fboundp 'line-end-position)
    (defun line-end-position (&optional n)
      "Return the `point' of the end of the current line."
        (end-of-line n)

right after the comments at the top. That should fix the issue.
