  Downloading Hugs

This is the May 2006 release of Hugs, superseding the March 2005 interim release.

Summary of changes

Packaged distributions for specific systems

Microsoft Windows

The Windows installer was prepared by Neil Mitchell, and includes the graphical interface WinHugs. Choose either:

Fedora Core (Linux)

Packages for i386, x86_64 and ppc are included in Fedora Extras, thanks to Gérard Milmeister and Jens Petersen.


A fresh port has been contributed by Volker Stolz.

Mac OS X

A port (maintained by Gregory Wright) is available on Darwinports.

Packages for other systems will be listed here as they become available. In the meantime, you might like to use the previous release.

Source distributions

Choose either:

The command to build is just `make' in the top-level directory. (For options, see the file `docs/building/unix.txt' included in the bundle.) Note also:

  • Some of the library packages are built only if the system you're building on is set up for compilation with certain C libraries. In particular you get the Haskell X11 and HGL packages only if X11 libraries are present, and the OpenGL, GLUT, OpenAL and ALUT packages only if the corresponding C libraries are available.

  • To build the Cabal packages, you'll need cpphs and hsc2hs. For the former, you can use either the cpphs-hugs installed with Hugs or a cpphs compiled with some Haskell compiler. For the latter, only hschs-hugs will do: the version installed by GHC produces GHC-specific output.

  Reporting bugs

Please do not send direct mail to the authors or maintainers of Hugs if one of the above addresses would be more appropriate. We do read these mailing lists --- but so do many other people, who might be able to give you more appropriate or timely advice than us!
