box-tuples: A hack to use GHC.Prim primitives in GHCi

This is a package candidate release! Here you can preview how this package release will appear once published to the main package index (which can be accomplished via the 'maintain' link below). Please note that once a package has been published to the main package index it cannot be undone! Please consult the package uploading documentation for more information.


As of now, the GHCi interactive runtime is incapable of working on unboxed tuples. In particular, it is unable to fully apply any function returning an unboxed tuple, create a function that takes a non-nullary unboxed tuple as argument, or pass a non-nullary tuple to some other function. The usual solution is to enable object code generation with -fobject-code. This package serves as a workaround for the cases where -fobject-code is undesiable.
