hm, which raises the question of exactly what Maurício meant. Maurício,
if you mean you want to do ghc -e "some code which gets its data from
standard input", then Graham's solution is exactly what you want. If you
mean you want to have ghc -e run some code which itself comes from standard
input, then you want xargs (just do a man xargs to see how to use it). In
retrospect I'm guessing that Graham answered your real question...? =)
