After months of intense frustration I have something approaching a
reasonable OSX installer for the Haskell Platform. I'd appreciate it if
some OSX hackers could try it out.
The installer can be downloaded from:
Please do me a favour and don't link there from the haskell platform
* it presupposes GHC-6.10.3 is installed from the binary distro. The
final release will bundle the two together in a .dmg file.
* it installs the platform libraries and executables to
/Library/Framework/HaskellPlatform.framework, registers the
libraries with GHC, and symlinks the binaries to /usr/local/bin
* I had to build the distro package by hand using Apple's GUI tool
because I can't figure out how to do it otherwise -- and not for
lack of trying, either, I reckon I've put 20-30 man-hours into
trying to figure it out -- thanks Apple! Similarly, for the life of
me I cannot figure out how to bundle GHC and the platform libs
together into one installer.
* There's some haddock documentation in there but I'm not sure how
nicely it's cross-linked.
* The code is a mess, I need to clean it up (and systematize the
process) before it's fit for inclusion into the project.
* I've done some (very) limited testing but given how difficult the
whole project has been, I fully expect problems.
Sorry about how long it's taken -- I'm getting married on Saturday (!)
so finding time to work on this has been difficult indeed.
