[Haskell-cafe] Haskell & Perl architecture question

Not quite sure what you're looking for? Do you mean that you're looking at
the possibility of setting such a system up, or that you're looking at a
system that is already set up and trying to grok how it works? If the
latter, you might want to get a sense of how ghc manages its packages and
dependencies at
http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/users_guide/packages.html, which
also includes links to the information on the cabal infrastructure. If
that's not your question, then that material might either be too basic for
you or too offbase. The GHC manual is generally very well documented in
terms of describing package infrastructure, the linking process and the
runtime environment, etc.
If, rather, you're looking at issues more directly related to Haskell/web
stuff, you might want to specify what exactly you're looking to do, as there
are a number of solutions in use rather than a single, e.g., mod_haskell. If
it's an established system, then either it will be using a haskell webserver
(WASH, HAppS, etc) or it will be written using the CGI/FastCGI libraries. If
you're looking to set up a system, then of course it depends what you want
to do with it... for lightweight solutions, a combination of FastCGI and
HDBC seems to be pretty popular at the moment. In all these cases, note that
generally you'll be working with Haskell binaries, rather than scripts, and
that such binaries should either be built on the system in question
directly, or on one with the same architecture.
Hope that helps,
