Haskell on Mac OS X release?

Hi Howard,

As you've probably experienced, compiling Hugs under MacOS X is 
failry straightforward, and the current CVS version of Hugs 
actually compiles right out of the box.  To download a copy, go 
to cvs.haskell.org and follow the instructions.  The next 
official Hugs release (which is slightly delayed but still due 
this summer) will of course support MacOS X as well.

However, only the standard text-based interface is supported, 
and no graphics libraries have yet been ported to MacOS X as far 
as I know.  A more advanced GUI similar to the WinHugs interface 
would of course be neat, but in my mind a port of Alastair 
Reid's Graphics Library library would be much more valuable.  So 
if you'd like to have a go with such an effort, it would be much 
appreciated.  Please contact me or Alastair Reid 
<[email protected]> if you'd like to discuss this in more detail.

Thanks for your interest!

All the best,
Johan
