Hi. I have a few newbie questions about JHC.
* When trying to 'make' JHC I get the following error:
/usr/bin/ghc -fbang-patterns -O -ignore-package lang -W
-fno-warn-unused-matches -fwarn-type-defaults -i -i./drift_processed
-i./. -i -odir -hidir -package mtl -package unix -package QuickCheck
-ignore-package lang -fallow-undecidable-instances -fglasgow-exts
-fallow-overlapping-instances --make Main.hs
StringTable/StringTable_cbits.o cbits/md5sum.o -o jhc
ghc-6.8.2: error: directory portion of "-hidir" does not exist (used
with "-odir" option.)
make: *** [jhc] Error 1
Is this a bug or is there something I should do differently? (sorry, I
have a long history of avoiding learning make to any significant level)
* I saw mention by John that he'd gotten a successful binary to compile
for the ARM architecture. Is this a cross-compilation? How would I go
about getting it working?
* How close is JHC to being a production-ready compiler these days? What
remains to get it working?
