Step 1. Install the Haskell Platform from http://www.haskell.org/platform

Step 2. Use Cabal to upgrade QuickCheck to version 2 http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Cabal-Install


[edit] 2 2008

Step 1. Install ghc 6.8.3 installation executable here http://haskell.org/ghc/dist/6.8.3/ghc-6.8.3-i386-windows.exe

Step 2. Install it to default directory c:\ghc\ghc-6.8.3

Step 3. create directory c:\ghc\ghc-6.8.3\libraries

Step 4. Download GLFW source zip here http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/GLFW/0.3/GLFW-0.3.tar.gz

Step 5. untar into c:\ghc\ghc-6.8.3\libraries. This will create a subdirectory GLFW-0.3

Step 6. Pull up windows command shell. Verify that ghc is in your path by typing ghc at the prompt. If it is not, go to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environment Variables and edit Path to add "c:\ghc\ghc-6.8.3\bin\" to Path.

Step 7. in Command shell (or other shell like cygwin shell) execute the following commands

  • > cd c:\ghc\ghc-6.8.3\libraries\GLFW
  • > runghc Setup.hs configure
  • > runghc Setup.hs build
  • > runghc Setup.hs install

This installs the GLFW package. The OpenGL package comes with the standard installation.

Step 8. install darcs for Windows. see instructions on how to install pre-built binaries here

Step 9. compile and install QuickCheck 2 development version


You should now be able to load the tutorials with ghci via

  • > ghci tutorialN.hs {N = 1,2...}
