Synopsis

ghc [option|filename]...
ghci [option|filename]...

Description

This manual page documents briefly the ghc and ghci commands. Note that ghci is not yet available on all architectures. Extensive documentation is available in various other formats including DVI, PostScript and HTML; see below.

Each of GHC's command line options is classified as either static or dynamic. A static flag may only be specified on the command line, whereas a dynamic flag may also be given in an Options pragma in a source file or set from the GHCi command-line with :set.

As a rule of thumb, all the language options are dynamic, as are the warning options and the debugging options.

The rest are static, with the notable exceptions of -v, -cpp, -fasm, -fvia-C, -fllvm, and " -#include . The Options sections lists the status of each flag.

Common suffixes of file names for Haskell are:

.hs
Haskell source code; preprocess, compile
.lhs
literate Haskell source; unlit, preprocess, compile
.hi
Interface file; contains information about exported symbols
.hc
intermediate C files
.x_o
way x object files; common ways are: p, u, s
.x_hi
way x interface files
