Regular, shape-polymorphic, parallel arrays now in AUR

Repa, a new library for multi-dimensional automatically-parallel arrays in Haskell, is now available in Arch Linux via AUR.  Such arrays may be converted to and from bytestrings, and written out in various formats. Example algorithms are available, including fft2d, matmult, and laplace, along with an algorithm library. The library may prove useful for scientific and numerical computing, where high level languages, with good parallel performance, should shine.

More information about Repa is available:

Arch Haskell News: May 3 2009

Another update, since there was a bit of a package backlog.

Hackage now has 1251 (+1) Haskell packages, of which 1095 (+43) (87.5%) have been natively packaged for Arch in AUR.  All these packages are available via AUR, using the “yaourt” tool.

Here’s today’s updates, broken down by category, so you can get a sense for what’s new in your area of interest:

            We’ve reached a milestone: more than 1000 Haskell packages packaged up for Arch Linux.

            Hackage now has 1163 (+41) Haskell packages, of which 1007 (+33) have been natively packaged for Arch in AUR. That’s 33 new packages in two weeks, and lots of updates as well.

            Arch Haskell News: Feb 16 2009

            A regular update of Haskell in Arch Linux

            Arch now has 926 Haskell packages in AUR.

            That’s an increase of 27 new packages in the last 8 days, or 3.38 new Haskell apps a day. Well done everyone!

            Noteworthy updates

            Installing Packages from AUR

            To install AUR packages, we recommend yaourt, as in:

            yaourt --noconfirm  --lightbg --aur -S haskell-haha

            You may want to alias that command line. Here’s an example from this week’s releases:

            The reason to use yaourt over cabal-install is that AUR packages correctly resolve all versions and, more importantly, C library and other system dependencies. Packages will also be pulled from the binary releases in [extra] and [community] where available, saving you build times.
