first, thanks a lot for the nightly builds and mails, both STABLE
and HEAD. it is great to know when the last successfull build
was, and even better that nightly snapshots are now available
for windows as well.
on to feedback (win98se, ghc-18.104.22.16850507):
- ghci's ":!" now works.
- System.system now works, but always delivers ExitSuccess,
unless the command is not found, which gives an exception?
- System.Cmd.rawSystem "bash" ["-c","false"] works (under
bash), and gives the correct ExitStatus.
- ctrl-c when running ghcii.sh under bash has difficulties to
stop runaway recursion (f n = f (n+1)), but finally succeeds
and returns to ghci prompt. great, but could ghcii.sh and
ghci.exe perhaps be merged (running ":!env" in ghcii.sh
shows some remnants of having come via cygwin, so it
might be sufficient to distinguish between the calling envs,
not between executable and shell script)?
- glut32.dll missing? (same for 6.5 snapshots). under bash, we
pick up cygwin's copy, but mingw's version hasn't been
copied from mingw/bin/ to ghc-6.4.1/bin/, so non-bash
uses of ghc/ghci fail with "-package GLUT".
- Tess.hs from the opengl redbook examples now runs without
quite a positive balance so far. was there anything else on the
win98 list? I can't test wxHaskell yet, need to rebuild.. but I
understand from the check-ins that the wxHaskell crashes
should go away as well?-)
