|This manages everything to do with where files get installed (though does
not get involved with actually doing any installation). It provides an
InstallDirs type which is a set of directories for where to install
things. It also handles the fact that we use templates in these install
dirs. For example most install dirs are relative to some $prefix and by
changing the prefix all other dirs still end up changed appropriately. So it
provides a PathTemplate type and functions for substituting for these
The directories where we will install files for packages.
We have several different directories for different types of files since
many systems have conventions whereby different types of files in a package
are installed in different direcotries. This is particularly the case on
unix style systems.
|prefix :: dir|
|bindir :: dir|
|libdir :: dir|
|libsubdir :: dir|
|dynlibdir :: dir|
|libexecdir :: dir|
|progdir :: dir|
|includedir :: dir|
|datadir :: dir|
|datasubdir :: dir|
|docdir :: dir|
|mandir :: dir|
|htmldir :: dir|
|haddockdir :: dir|
The installation directories in terms of PathTemplates that contain
The defaults for most of the directories are relative to each other, in
particular they are all relative to a single prefix. This makes it
convenient for the user to override the default installation directory
by only having to specify --prefix=... rather than overriding each
individually. This is done by allowing $-style variables in the dirs.
These are expanded by textual substituion (see substPathTemplate).
A few of these installation directories are split into two components, the
dir and subdir. The full installation path is formed by combining the two
together with /. The reason for this is compatibility with other unix
build systems which also support --libdir and --datadir. We would like
users to be able to configure --libdir=/usr/lib64 for example but
because by default we want to support installing multiple versions of
packages and building the same package for multiple compilers we append the
libsubdir to get: /usr/lib64/$pkgid/$compiler.
An additional complication is the need to support relocatable packages on
systems which support such things, like Windows.
