How about just C:\Program Files\Haskell\$datasubdir

Since you don't care, how about:
C:\Program Files\Haskell\doc\foo-1.0\

It will at least be relative to prefix unlike the datadir which is fixed
for libs.

As for UI, that's the job of a windows installer for a package imho and
something like GUIHaskell can use ghc-pkg to find where the docs were
installed (if at all). Sadly there's nothing similar for hugs.

I've attached a patch with my suggestion. Someone who cares about
Windows should test and apply it, or make a better patch.

Actually, said Windows dev would also need to update the user guide to
say what the default paths are and then close this bug:

-------------- next part --------------

New patches:

[Change installation layout on Windows slightly
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070824163141
 Make Haskell part of the default $prefix and make docs relative
 to $prefix rather than $datadir which is fixed for libs.
 Make the default fixed lib $datadir be Program Files\Haskell rather
 than Common Files.

[Add install-includes .h files to the sdist tarball

[Only create includes and bin dirs if necessary
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070824152749
 For includes, don't list the include dir in the package registration
 info unless we're actually going to install some include files.
 So we should create fewer pointless empty directories. See bug #97.
[Look for install-includes in . first, then in include-dirs
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070824152632
 Since .h files listed in install-includes need not be in the include-dirs
 search path at all.
[Document lots of flags and the new build-tools: field
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070824134316
 Document the following options:
 --enable-library-for-ghci / --disable-library-for-ghc
 --enable-library-vanilla / --disable-library-vanilla
 --enable-split-objs / --disable-split-objs
 --with-PROG= --PROG-args=
[Remove unused --enable-haddock-use-packages flags
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070824133045
 The feature they controled had been removed but
 the --enable/disable flag had not been removed.
[Add a "build-tools:" field to the cabal file format
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070823212946
 It's the same format as the build-depends, eg:
 build-tools: cpphs, c2hs >= 0.15
 During the configure step we try to configure the listed programs and
 if a version range is specified then we check that it is satisfied.
[Hack to supress a warning when building Cabal
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070823212645
 Normally we'd warn if using a new format cabal file and a cabal-version >= 1.2
 field is not specified in the cabal file. However we cannot do this for cabal
 itself or we'd not be able to bootstrap. So we just supress the warning for
 the package "Cabal".
[Wrap the configure help text program list and rename the prog arg templates
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070823193245
 Use "--with-PROG=" rather than "--with-<program>" since the other subsitution
 bits like ARGS, PATH etc are upper case contractions. So it's more consistent.
[Make the GetOpt help text fit in 80 cols by wrapping the description
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070823193015
 And reduce the padding slightly.
 The configure help text look slightly less terrible now, though we've still
 got too many long flags and short flags with long arg names so there's not
 really enough width for the description so it wraps in too many cases.
[Don't include the massive list of --with-prog --prog-args flags in help text
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070823155910
 Instead have just two generic ones in the help text and at the bottom,
 list the programs that the flags apply to.
 This still needs to be properly word wrapped to fit in 80 cols (as does the
 rest of the help text).
[Swap haddock inplace/install dirs that were accidentally the wrong way round

 It's still useless on Windows.

[We don't need a short option configure flag for selecting nhc
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070817043021
 I don't think we need one for ghc either, but perhaps we shouldn't remove
 that immediately as people might be using it. It's safe to remove -n now
 becuase nobody is relying on it as nhc support is still incomplete.
[Trivial reformatting

[Make configure much less verbose by default and give useful output with -v
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070817042414
 This actually brings it into line with the other commands which do not produce
 much output by default. It is very very quiet by default now though.
 To make the -v output nice we have to lower the verbosity one notch in places.
[Add a sanity check that the ghc and ghc-pkg versions should be equal
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070817034519
 This was easy to do now that Programs know how to find their version numbers.
[Rewrite the Program abstraction and the ProgramConfiguration database
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070817033841
 Also make the follow on changes to everything that uses Program.
 The notion of a program is now split into the abstract notion of a program
 that we know about and might be able to configure, and a configured program
 that we can actually run. The ProgramConfiguration database is similarly
 split. We still keep user-supplied loation and arguments and use them when
 we configure programs. The abstract Program now has functions to search for
 the program on the system and for finding the version number. This allows
 for more generic configuration of programs.

Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070814092320
 New types for the collection of installation directory templates and a
 separate type for the collection of actual real install FilePaths.
 The templates are represented with a PathTemplate adt.
 Dir templates can now be relative to each other, eg $htmldir to $docdir
 Default install dir templates are now specified compactly in one place.
 Adding new dirs should be considerably simpler than previously.
 This patch should not actualy change where anything is installed.

[Add compilerExtensions field to Compiler and make each compiler fill it in
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070807170653
 It's just a list of supported extensions and the corresponding compiler flags.
 For most compilers this is currently just a static list. For ghc 6.7 and above
 we query ghc to find the list of language extensions it supports.
 In each case the code has moved out into the compiler-specific modules and the
 core code treats it generically.
 The extensionsToFlags function has been split into two:
 extensionsToFlags which now returns the flags for the supported extensions and
 unsupportedExtensions which does what it says it does. This is because the two
 roles of the previous function were always used separately, never together.

 We do this during the configure step and then later we don't have to run

 This also eliminates some annoying module interdependencies.
 Eventually the Program abstraction ought to include the ability for programs
 to discover their own version numbers so it can be done more modularly.

 The idea is that we should carry the version number along with the program
 if we know it, so we can later decide version-dependent args without having

[Store resolved package description in local build info.  
Thomas Schilling <nominolo at gmail.com>**20070728221102
 The clean and sdist commands need to use a flattened representation of

 flattenPackageDescription for some problems with this approach.

[Bugfix by Ian Lynagh:  Cabal can't have a Cabal-Version header; it breaks bootstrapping

[Partial bugfix to allow traditional .cabal files without a library but
Thomas Schilling <nominolo at gmail.com>**20070628112301
 global build dependencies.  The correct solution is to add global
 dependencies to each executable and implement dependency resolution
 for executables.
 The current workaround is to add the dependencies to the library, but
 disable building of the library.

 Used to be if __GLASGOW_HASKELL__ >= 604, but the 6.4 branch had a bug

[Rename --hscolour to --hyperlink-source and add haddock --css flag
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070723190026
 So now --hyperlink-source controles wether or not we run hscolour and
 get haddock to link to the sources. The new flag --hscolour-css can
 be used to override the css file that hscolour uses.
 Also, the new flag --css can override the css file that haddock uses.
[Merges from hscolour patch and make it work with haddock-0.8
Duncan Coutts <duncan at haskell.org>**20070723180602
 Some minor changes due to changes since the hscolour patch was written.
 Make it work with haddock-0.8 by using %{MODULE} rather than %{FILE}
 and generate output file names to match (ie not using the original file
 extension, just using the module name for the output file).
