runghc - Man Page

program to run Haskell programs without first having to compile them.


runghc [runghc|flags] [GHC|flags] module [program|flags]...


runghc is considered a non-interactive interpreter and part of The Glasgow Haskell Compiler. runghc is a compiler that automatically runs its results at the end.  


the flags are:

it tells runghc which GHC to use to run the program. If it is not given then runghc will search for GHC in the directories in the system search path. runghc -f /path/to/ghc


runghc will try to work out where the boundaries between [runghc flags] and [GHC flags], and [GHC flags] and module are, but you can use a -- flag if it doesn't get it right. For example, runghc -- -fglasgow-exts Foo  means runghc won't try to use glasgow-exts as the path to GHC, but instead will pass the flag to GHC.


runghc foo

runghc -f /path/to/ghc foo

runghc -- -fglasgow-exts Foo
