The Glasgow Haskell Compiler -- version 4.08.2
We are pleased to announce a new release of the Glasgow Haskell
Compiler (GHC), version 4.08.2. The source distribution is freely
available via the World-Wide Web and through anon. FTP, under a
BSD-style license. See below for download details. Pre-built
packages for Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris and Win32 are also available.
Haskell is "the" standard lazy functional programming language; the
current language version is Haskell 98, agreed in December 1998.
GHC is a state-of-the-art optimising compiler for Haskell, generating
good code for a variety of platforms. The distribution includes space
and time profiling facilities, a large collection of libraries, and
support for various language extensions, including concurrency,
exceptions, and foreign language interfaces (C, C++, whatever).
A wide variety of Haskell related resources (tutorials, libraries,
specifications, documentation, compilers, interpreters, references,
contact information, links to research groups) are available from the
Haskell home page at
