Build Status

Experimenting with building Poor Richard’s Memory Manager in Haskell user space.


import System.Mem.Manager

0.0.3 [2019.05.02]

  • Fix the build on Windows.
  • Remove the doctests test suite, as there were never any doctests to begin with.


  • Add a library dependency on the doctests test suite


  • Revamp Setup.hs to use cabal-doctest. This makes it build with Cabal-2.0, and makes the doctests work with cabal new-build and sandboxes.


  • Initialized repository
