Explicitly specified flag assignments
|-> (Dependency -> Bool)|
Is a given depenency satisfiable from the set of available packages? If this is unknown then use True.
Compiler + Version
|-> Either [Dependency] (PackageDescription, FlagAssignment)|
Either missing dependencies or the resolved package description along with the flag assignments chosen.
Create a package description with all configurations resolved.
It takes as inputs a not necessarily complete specifications of flags assignments, an optional package index as well as platform parameters. If some flags are not assigned explicitly, this function will try to pick an assignment that causes this function to succeed. The package index is optional since on some platforms we cannot determine which packages have been installed before. When no package index is supplied, every dependency is assumed to be satisfiable, therefore all not explicitly assigned flags will get their default values.
This function will fail if it cannot find a flag assignment that leads to satisfiable dependencies. (It will not try alternative assignments for explicitly specified flags.) In case of failure it will return a minimum number of dependencies that could not be satisfied. On success, it will return the package description and the full flag assignment chosen.
Flatten a generic package description by ignoring all conditions and just join the field descriptors into on package description. Note, however, that this may lead to inconsistent field values, since all values are joined into one field, which may not be possible in the original package description, due to the use of exclusive choices (if ... else ...).
XXX: One particularly tricky case is defaulting. In the original package description, e.g., the source directory might either be the default or a certain, explicitly set path. Since defaults are filled in only after the package has been resolved and when no explicit value has been set, the default path will be missing from the package description returned by this function.
