GHC has the ability to embed an interpreter.  You do not want to use it.
 If you want Perl/Python/Ruby, please use those; they are interpreters and
have built-in embedded interpreters for use by programs.

(Note that C and C++ are not generally interpreted and also don't have
embedded interpreters either.)
