Module documentation for 8.2.2

This version can be pinned in stack with:[email protected]:6d0fa0753a5f205021ffa64d69a311f0c51ebd95af4c2d98c4b11057d51055ea,1730

This library is shared between GHC, ghc-pkg, and other boot libraries.

A note about GHC.PackageDb: it only deals with the subset of the package database that the compiler cares about: modules paths etc and not package metadata like description, authors etc. It is thus not a library interface to ghc-pkg and is not suitable for modifying GHC package databases.

The package database format and this library are constructed in such a way that while ghc-pkg depends on Cabal, the GHC library and program do not have to depend on Cabal.
