It's amazing what you find in the manual:
runs a custom preprocessor.
Let the source file be $S.
First, literate Haskell processing is done,
Then <your program> "$S" "$L" "$O" is run,
where $O is where GHC wants your program to
write its output.
GHC then reads $O.
tells GHC to use cmd as the custom preprocessor.
My little hspp was written before I realised this could be done,
so I had to whip up
exec hspp <"$2" >"$3"
and use that.
m% cat main.hs
main = print (take-while (<10) [1..])
m% ghc -F -pgmF hspp.sh main.hs
If there isn't a GHC option to count the dragons in the moon,
there soon will be.
One option that would be nice would be accepting -help as well
