Hi, I get the following error while I tried installing the ByteString package. Could you please help me resolve this >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
C:\Users> cabal install bytestring
Resolving dependencies...
Configuring bytestring-
Failed to install bytestring-
Last 10 lines of the build log ( C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\caba
l\logs\bytestring- ):
setup-Cabal- Missing dependency on a
foreign library:
* Missing (or bad) header file: fpstring.h
This problem can usually be solved by installing the system package that
provides this library (you may need the "-dev" version). If the library is
already installed but in a non-standard location then you can use the flags
--extra-include-dirs= and --extra-lib-dirs= to specify where it is.
If the header file does exist, it may contain errors that are caught by the C
compiler at the preprocessing stage. In this case you can re-run configure
with the verbosity flag -v3 to see the error messages.
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
bytestring- failed during the configure step. The exception was:
ExitFailure 1>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Regards,Abhinav
