can you compile AwesomePrelude?
I've got error messages (see below).
By the way, I've looked at some DSLs made in Haskell, if I don't mistake
there are lots of similarities between them.
There similarities could be put in a library to help the implementors of a
DSL, more or less like AwesomePrelude.
Is there already packages on Hackage dealing with that?
AwesomePrelude compilation error:
I'm using GHC 6.12.1.
> cd tomlokhorst-AwesomePrelude-9819315
> cabal install
Warning: Lang.Haskell: Instances of type and data families are not yet
supported. Instances of the following families will be filtered out: H
Then, when trying with a very simple GATD in GHCI, I've got:
<interactive>: HSAwesomePrelude-0.1.0.o: unknown symbol
ghc: unable to load package `AwesomePrelude-0.1.0'
