hinstaller

Installer wrapper for Haskell applications http://www.wellquite.org/hinstaller/

Latest on Hackage:2008.2.16

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.

This module allows you to incorporate arbitrary files into a haskell module during compilation. The files are then available to you through functions which allows you to write installer-type applications which write out the files when run. Thus this can be considered in the same model as Java .jar files or executable zip or other file archives.

The current implementation is now reasonably efficient. However, it does require that you have a C compiler installed which can be invoked through cc.
