(Sorry if you received this twice. There was some problem with my mailer.)
I'm trying to build pugs ( http://www.pugscode.org/ ) on Cygwin.
I have GHC 6.6.1 (installed from MSI).
Pugs build routine tries to look for the readline package and fails:
$ ghc-pkg describe readline
ghc-pkg.exe: cannot find package readline
I have GNU readline installed as a Cygwin package, but it looks like
the readline package, which appears to be standard on other
GHC-supported platforms, is not installed with GHC on Windows.
This problem is mentioned in the GHC FAQ ( http://tinyurl.com/2lyjno )
but there is no solution; maybe there was supposed to be a link, but
it is not there now.
Is it possible to install the readline package manually?
Thanks in advance.
(Please excuse my cluelessness - i'm a GHC newbie.)
