update to match reality; try to be a bit more helpful
parent 9df21db4
This is the root directory for functional-programming tools
distributed by the Computing Science Department at Glasgow University.
Simon Peyton Jones <simonpj@microsoft.com> is the ringleader of this
effort. The tools are:
ghc the Glasgow Haskell compilation system
hslibs collection of Haskell libraries
haggis the Haggis GUI toolkit
happy the Happy Haskell parser generator
hdirect Haskell interop tool
green-card a foreign function interface pre-processor for Haskell.
nofib the NoFib Haskell benchmarking suite
literate the Glasgow "literate programming" system
glafp-utils shared utility programs
mk GNU make setup used by all of fptools
docs documentation on the installing and using
the fptools suite.
Components which are always part of a distribution (never stand-alone)
are "glafp-utils" and "mk" (a configuration system).
fptools build system
====================
This is the top-level directory of the fptools build system. Several
packages are part of this build system; if you got this as part of a
source distribution (eg. for GHC), then you will have one or more of
the following directories:
ghc The Glasgow Haskell Compiler
hslibs A Collection of Haskell libraries
haggis The Haggis GUI toolkit
happy The Happy Haskell parser generator
hdirect Haskell interop tool
green-card A foreign function interface pre-processor for Haskell.
nofib The NoFib Haskell benchmarking suite
Additional documentation for each project can be found in its
respective directory.
In addition, the following directories contain project-independent bits:
mk GNU make setup used by all of fptools
glafp-utils Shared utility programs
docs Documentation on the installing and using
the fptools build system.
distrib Tools and additional bits for building distributions

There is usually an ANNOUNCE* file with any distribution. Please
consult that, or the <piece>/README file, to find out how to proceed.
