I've just discovered the GMP license problem. (see
From my understanding, the gmp is GPL, GHC statically links it on windows.
As a consequence, any program compiled using GHC must be distributed
under a GPL compatible license.
In the threads I've read, some workarounds are proposed on linux and
OsX, but I didn't see anything on windows.
Is the situation still the same ?
Does anybody know a work-around to make a closed-source programm in
haskell without violating the GPL ?
( Note this could block Haskell in our company. )
