Any time someone mentions something that sounds like a Haskell  
package, http://hackage.haskell.org is your friend.

And there I find, in the Development category:

> ghc-core program: Display GHC's core and assembly output in a pager

IIRC it's just a prettyprinter/colorizer to make it easier to follow  
and understand GHC Core.
