Piet implementation for Arch

The initial release of piet, an implementation of the Piet programming language is now available as a package in AUR. The piet binary also ships with Language.Piet, an API to the interpreter.

An example session with the interpreter:

$ piet hello.png
Hello world!

Where the input file is the helloworld.piet program:

Here’s some Piet programs:

Piet is implemented in Haskell.

GHC 6.10 for Arch Linux

Vesa Kaihlavirta has moved GHC 6.10 from [testing] into [extra], so Arch now ships with GHC 6.10 out of the box. Also out of the box comes:

So you can immediately get into full haskell development mode.

The AUR package suite has been updated to play well with 6.10, and the most used AUR packages will continue to move into the binary packaging of the [community] repository.

The AUR packages have an advantage over cabal-install of having C libraries resolved to native packages, and they’ve been checked to build on Arch.

Happy hacking!

LHC: Lemmih’s Haskell Compiler

Arch now has another Haskell compiler!

LHC is a new Haskell compiler which aims to produce the most efficient programs possible via whole program analysis and other optimizations.It is a fork of JHC, to support the cabal build system, which lets us automatically package it for distros like Arch.
