Part of Yhc



To build yhc from source, you will require:

  • GHC
  • any C compiler
  • python
  • scons
  • darcs

Downloading Yhc

The current development version is available online. Please note that yhc is still not finished, so don't expect a full polished compiler yet!

darcs get --partial http://darcs.haskell.org/yhc


There is a mailing list for general discussion, bug reports etc.

There is also a blog, where development style posts are made. This is probably better for getting a feel of the project.

There is also a bug reporting place.


The following ports have been done, and should work straight from the darcs repo, without additional modifications. If your platform is not on this list see the Yhc porting guide, its usually about 10 minutes work!

  • Linux/x86 - Tom Shackell
  • Linux/x86-64 - Tom Shackell + Andrew Wilkinson
  • Windows/x86 - Neil Mitchell
  • Mac OS X/PPC - Tom Davie
  • OpenBSD/x86 - Donald Bruce Stewart
  • Irix/mips64 - Donald Bruce Stewart
  • Solaris - IurieCn / phys_rules
  • Plan 9 - vegai [in progress]
  • PalmOS - stepcut [in progress]
