  I encountered the same problem of downloading with
ftp. However, even if you succeeded in downloading, I
guess it would not work as we wish:(. The system I use
is HP-UX 11.00 (64-bit) HPPA 2.0. And I downloaded the
version 4.08.2 for hppa1.1-hp-hpux with HTTP. It ran
(without explicit errors) and output sth when input
sth.hs. However, each time when I ran the sth, I got
core dump. I tried to recompile the compiler (or even
Happy), of course, failed with the same symptom (or
unHappy). If I know anyone has successfully run GHC
without incurring core dumps in HP-UX 11.00 (64-bit),
I'll be very happy if Happy works too:). If I have
enough time, I wish I could port it to HP-UX 11.00
(64-bit). I'm very glad to know if there exists
somebody who will aid me or play together with me over
64-bit ghc for 64-bit HPUXes. Should I attack the
problem from HBC or nhc98?

One more bad news, SMLNJ works on HP-UX 10.20, not on
HP-UX 11.00, either:-(. I've tried and failed too.

One more good news, Hugs98-Feb2001 does work in HP-UX
11.00 (64-bit). I swear, where only very few tweaks
are needed. But I guess it's running in 32-bit

The last kisstion: Can I build ghc from Hugs, my god?
