[Haskell-cafe] Hugs on iPhone

Doesn't Apple Store restrict applications (by policy) so they cannot generate or execute arbitrary code? (That's the reason there's no Flash for iPhone.) That restriction seems like it'd block any interpreter or compiler from being sold, no?

I think he means a program running on the iPhone which allows you to open a terminal over an SSH session to other devices. The instance (I think) you're thinking of is where the SSH *server* runs on the iPhone.

Yeah I was talking about a terminal capability that can deal with all the lovely control codes of serial terminals.

I thought this could serve as a front-end for something running with curses bindings, not that you need to open up the whole darned iphone to do this stuff.

1) You'll need a terminal application first, and I'm not sure if there is one in AppStore. In fact, I AM sure there isn't.

There's SSH terminal programs like Putty based stuff that are in the AppStore.  So that sort of thing has been done yes.

You sure it can SSH to iPhone itself? Installing Hugs (or GHC) on a desktop PC and connecting to it via ssh is anything but impressive.
