This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

hgrep

Search Haskell source code from the command line.

Powered by ghc-exactprint.

Usage

$> hgrep
Usage: hgrep [-e|--regex] EXPRESSION [FILE]

hgrep requires an expression and a set of files to search across.

An expression can be one of

  • The name of a type, e.g. FooBar
  • The name of an expression, e.g. foo
  • A regular expression (via the -e flag), e.g. -e Foo$

Each file will be parsed and searched. Results will be printed to the console, with syntax highlighting where possible.

Searching for top-level expressions

$> hgrep main main/hgrep.hs
main/hgrep.hs:16:1-13

-- | Run the program.
main :: IO ()
main/hgrep.hs:(17,1)-(18:27)

main = do
  putStrLn "Hello, world!"

Searching for type declarations

$> hgrep PrintOpts src/**/*.hs
src/Language/Haskell/HGrep/Internal/Data.hs:(40,1)-(42,28)

data PrintOpts = PrintOpts {
    poColourOpts :: ColourOpts
  } deriving (Eq, Ord, Show)

Searching with a regular expression

$> hgrep -e 'Opts$' src/**/*.hs
src/Language/Haskell/HGrep/Internal/Data.hs:(57,1)-(59,28)

data PrintOpts = PrintOpts {
    poColourOpts :: ColourOpts
  } deriving (Eq, Ord, Show)
src/Language/Haskell/HGrep/Internal/Data.hs:(61,1)-(64,26)

defaultPrintOpts :: PrintOpts
src/Language/Haskell/HGrep/Internal/Data.hs:(67,1)-(70,5)

defaultPrintOpts =
  PrintOpts {
      poColourOpts = DefaultColours
    }
