1 PkgEnv

1.1 Session Example

We start creating a new package environment:

hypermac:trash paolo$ pkgenv binary.env
Using GHC 6.10.1 (full path: /opt/local/bin/ghc-6.10.1)
Using cabal-install 0.6.2 (full path: /Users/paolo/.cabal/bin/cabal)
Installing package environment in /Users/paolo/trash/binary.env.
Done!

Usage:

  bash> source /Users/paolo/trash/binary.env/bin/activate
  (binary.env)bash> deactivate
  bash>
hypermac:trash paolo$  

We activate the new environment (the bash prompt is changed accordingly):

hypermac:trash paolo$ source binary.env/bin/activate 
(binary.env)hypermac:trash paolo$

All tools run now by default on the system package DB and the newly created/empty user package DB:

(binary.env)hypermac:trash paolo$ ghc-pkg list

Let's install a package inside the new environment:

(binary.env)hypermac:trash paolo$ cabal install --verbose=0 binary
Reading package info from "dist/installed-pkg-config" ... done.
Writing new package config file... done.
(binary.env)hypermac:trash paolo$ ghc-pkg list

We can now use the new package:

(binary.env)hypermac:trash paolo$ ghci
GHCi, version 6.10.1: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/  :? for help
Loading package ghc-prim ... linking ... done.
Loading package integer ... linking ... done.
Loading package base ... linking ... done.
Prelude> import Data.Binary
Prelude Data.Binary>

and leave the environment:

(binary.env)hypermac:trash paolo$ deactivate 
hypermac:trash paolo$ 

and when you're done with the environment, simply remove it:

hypermac:trash paolo$ rm -rf binary.env
