I’d like to try Haskell at my work and if the result is good I want to push this language in the company.
But I’ve got an issue because of our proxy configuration. The developers work on Windows 8 and our proxy is configured with a PAC file.
The issue is we can’t use cabal to fetch package. When we run the cabal update command, nothing happen. We understand the problem comes
from the proxy is not used inside a command prompt. 
I tried to use the Eclipse plugin but unfortunately, it uses the cabal command too.

Somebody knows how we can have a well configured cabal ? 



Ps1. I try the netssh winhttp command. But I don’t succeed to define the PAC file. It seems, we can only define a proxy address. But it’s not enough.
Ps2. The internet settings on Windows is like that: http://proxyserve:3810/fpac_file
