Notes on building the report
Haskell Report README
Tools needed:
* flex
* TeX (install "tetex" on a Linux distribution to get everything
you need).
These are the sources to the Haskell report, including all the source
files you will need to generate either the PDF or the HTML version of
the report.
Tools you will need
PDF version: a decent LaTeX installation with pdflatex. We use the
following additional packages:
- times
- makeidx
- graphicx
- url
- color
- hyperref
Also you need the following tools
- makeindex
all of which are usually available with a good TeX distribution
(e.g. TeX Live).
The following are also required for building the tools:
- flex
The HTML version additionall requires
- tex4ht (e.g. install 'tex4ht' on a Debian or Ubuntu system, or
'tetex-tex4ht' on a Fedora system)

When you check in a patch to the darcs repo, darcs will automatically
try to re-build the tools and report. If it fails for any reason, then
your patch will be rejected. (This is controlled by the top-level
Makefile target 'default', and the darcs preferences.) If you think
your patch is fine, but the build system is broken, then you might need
to login to and do some fixing by hand.
There are various other Makefile rules; for example 'make release' at
the top level was supposed to build a complete release of the "Revised
Haskell 98 Report", although it doesn't work out of the box. For
Haskell', we'll want to modify these Makefiles to do what we want in
due course.

Haskell Report Sources
This is the Haskell 2010 report, source distribution.
.verb files
This has all files needed to generate either the postscript or the
html version of the Haskell report. Some of these files are generated
from others - these are marked with a (*) and are included in case the
tool used to generate the file is unavailable.
.verb files are converted to .tex by the preprocessor "verbatim" in
../tools. When generating HTML via tex4ht, we use a slightly
different version of the preprocesor, in ../tools/verb-tex4ht.
To generate the postscript report you need lex, perl, latex,
makeindex, and dvips.
To generate the html report you need Hugs 1.4 (probably any Haskell
1.4 compiler will do).
make targets
To change the date on the report, you must change:
* haskell.verb (line 429-ish)
* index.html (line 8-ish)
* html.config (~foot item)
all make both HTML and PDF versions
html make the HTML version
pdf make the PDF version

To build the .dvi you need to patch the makefile to call the proper
version of perl. You will have some `non-grokked' instances in the
perl. Remember that you have to run latex twice. If anyone converts
the perl program to perl5 please send it to us!

Building HTML files
Build the html by creating a `html' subdirectory, copy the .html and
.gif files to it, and run tex.hs twice (like tex - to get forward refs
right). Run index.hs to generate the function index. You're done.
The 'make html' does most of this.
There are three files you need to work on:
Edit the title in the headers and footers.
You can hack in whatever html you want for page headers and
footers . You can also hack on the output directory setting (htmldir)
to direct the output wherever you want. You'll have to fiddle
"index.hs" if you do this, though. You can also add the line
style = microsoftsymbols,article
This exploits the symbol font that microsoft uses in its browser.
Much nicer for some of the equations. Probably a good idea since most
browsers handle the symbol font OK nowadays.
You will need to edit this a little bit; probably just a few renamings
and deleting stuff that lives in the libraries now. Add a few more
examples if you're feeling energetic.
As to the building process:
To build the html report: (using the .aux file and all the .verb files)
cd <report directory>
runhugs tex.hs
runhugs tex.hs
runhugs index.hs
Like latex, you have to run tex.hs twice. Unless you make massive
changes, though, you can probably just do it once. I'm sure ghc will
compile tex.hs if you want to speed things up.
Report any problems to the most recent editor, or failing that, one of
the past editors of the report.
