The Glasgow Haskell Compiler is a state-of-the-art, open source compiler and interactive environment for the functional language Haskell.

1 Documentation

The documentation below relates to using GHC. For documentation about GHC's internals and building GHC, head over to the GHC Developer Wiki.

These documents relate to the latest released version of GHC. For earlier released versions click the relevant version on the downloads page. For the the current HEAD snapshot look at development snapshots.


The User's Guide
The User's Guide has all you need to know about using GHC: command line options, language extensions, GHCi, etc.

Cabal
An infrastructure for building and distributing Haskell software.

2 Collaborative documentation

GHC is a big system. We try to document the core functionality (above), but you can help by writing documentation yourself. This section collects documentation written in a collaborative way, by users and developers together. Please help by adding new sections, and by clarifying and improving existing ones.

3 Development of GHC

See the GHC Developer Wiki. The latest snapshot of the documentation for the next version can be found here.
