it is my pleasure to announce the new release of the haskell-src-exts
package, version 0.4.4:
darcs get http://code.haskell.org/HSP/haskell-src-exts
The new feature in this release is support for pragmas.
haskell-src-exts-0.4.4 supports all pragmas supported by GHC, with the
exception of option-level pragmas (LANGUAGE, OPTIONS_GHC etc) that
appear before the module header. The reason these are not yet
supported is simply time, there's no real difficulty involved in
supporting them too and I will surely get there eventually.
0.4.4 is backwards incompatible with 0.4.3 for two constructors:
* The Module constructor (:: Module) now has an extra argument of type
'Maybe WarningText', used for deprecated modules.
* The ImportDecl constructor (:: ImportDecl) now has an extra argument
of type Bool, stating whether the SOURCE pragma has been used for the
The full list of pragmas supported by 0.4.4 is: SOURCE, RULES,
DEPRECATED, WARNING, INLINE, NOINLINE, SPECIALISE, CORE, SCC,
GENERATED and UNPACK.
Cheers and Happy Haskelling,
