I'm having a problem running ghci and loading the readline package on
C:\Software\haskell\ghc622\bin>ghci -package readline
ghci -package readline

ghc.exe: unable to load package `readline'
I have seen the follow in the user guide:
"For some reason, Mingw ships with the readline library, but not with the
readline headers. As a result, GHC (like Hugs) does not use readline for
interactive input on Windows. You can get a close simulation by using an
emacs shell buffer!"
but I assume I need readline as util needs it and util is needed by data
which is needed by wxcore.
