base-feature-macros: Semantic CPP feature macros for base

[ bsd3, development, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This provides a set of feature macros describing features of base in a semantic way.

See base-feature-macros.h for set of currently provided macros.

In order to use the CPP header provided by this package, add this package as a dependency to your .cabal file, i.e.

build-depends: base-feature-macros: >= 0.1 && < 0.2

while making sure that the version specified as lower bound defines the feature-macros your code tests for. This is particularly important as CPP will implicitly treat undefined CPP macros as having the value 0. See also GNU CPP/CC's -Wundef warning to detect such errors.

Then in your code, you can include and use the <base-feature-macros.h> header like so

module M where

#include <base-feature-macros.h>

import Data.Foldable (Foldable (..))
import Prelude       hiding (foldr, foldr1)
import Data.Monoid hiding ((<>))

This package is inspired by the blogpost &quot;Make macros mean something &#8211; readable backwards compatibility with CPP&quot;.


Note: This package has metadata revisions in the cabal description newer than included in the tarball. To unpack the package including the revisions, use 'cabal get'.
