I am building a SDL binding on MacOS X (but the same problem should
appears on Windows). It defines it's own main function in a
But I can't get ghc not to generate a main when linking with -lSDLmain,
which is the option that is indicated to get the main function that
make SDL usable.
when I link write :
ghc -o test Main.hs libSDLmain.a , ghc doesn't generate a main as it
can see there is a main in libSDLmain. And my test programs works.
but when I write
ghc -o test Main.hs -lSDLmain, ghc creates its own main, and it doesn't
The first solution is not convenient as the standard way of getting
parameter is "sdl-config" which gives back the second types of argument.
-no-hs-main don't change anything on this point.
Is there a flag saying ghc not to generate a main?
