[Haskell-cafe] Troubles with FFI

Yup I'm aware of it, and I'd love to use it.  The only problem is that it's
highly linux/unix specific as far as I can tell.  Even the graphics
libraries it uses only runs on 'nix right now.  I just tried to load
graphics.hgl and hello world program crashed GHCi and doesn't compile under
the regular ghc due to some missing object files.  I'm running windows xp
64, though most of the software I use runs under the 32 bit emulation mode.

I'd consider linux, but I don't have linux licenses for Matlab or Maple and
I have to interface to the corporate MS world.  Thus my 'solution'  will be
to make a very light weight matrix class that only pulls in a few BLAS and
Lapack routines coupled with a few file based routines with gnuplot as the
output, or perhaps pathon _ gnuplot as the output.  With any luck I'll be
able to open source that, if it does anybody any good.

After that I need to automate document creation from the output of math
simulations.  I'll use Latex as the engine for that.  It's something I've
done before to great effect.
