DrIFT - a type sensitive preprocessor for Haskell
DrIFT [ options ... ] file ...
It extracts type declarations and directives from modules. The directives cause rules to be fired on the parsed type declarations, generating new code which is then appended to the bottom of the input file. The rules are expressed as Haskell code, and it is intended that the user can add new rules as required. DrIFT automates instance derivation for classes that aren't supported by the standard compilers. In addition, instances can be produced in separate modules to that containing the type declaration. This allows instances to be derived for a type after the original module has been compiled. As a bonus, simple utility functions can also be produced from a type. -v, --verbose chatty output on stderr -V, --version show version number -l, --list list available derivations -L, --noline omit line pragmas from output -o FILE, --output=FILE output FILE -s name:value, --set=name:value set argument to value -r, --results-only output only results, do not include source file -g rule, --global=rule addition rules to apply globally -i, --ignore ignore directives in file, which is useful with -g
The environment variable DERIVEPATH can be used to declare a list of directories which contain the modules and/or interfaces that define the additional classes you wish to derive from. DrIFT is quite fussy about the format of the DERIVEPATH variable. The directory list should have the following format: * each path should be separated by ‘:’ * no space inserted anywhere * no final ‘/’ on the end of a path Examples of DERIVEPATH settings: good - /users/grad/nww/share/hugs/lib:/users/grad/nww/share/hugs/lib/hugs bad - /users/grad/nww/share/hugs/lib/:/users/grad/nww/share/hugs/lib/hugs/
