[Haskell-cafe] Annotating GHC assembler output?

Hi Justin.

try:  ghc -c <file> -ddump-to-file -ddump-asm

You should get a .dump.asm file in the same place as <file> which still 
has symbols named after the source functions. Keep in mind though that 
the continuation passing style (CPS) conversion done in the back end of 
GHC causes the code not to look like something you might get out of, say
