The cabal-debian package

[Tags: bsd3, library, program]

Tool for creating debianizations of Haskell packages based on the .cabal file. If apt-file is installed it will use it to discover what is the debian package name of a C library. Basic usage is via the cabal-debian executable. A more powerful but still undocumented programmatic interface is also provided. Normal usage for this is to put a script in debian/Debianize.hs (such as the one in this source package) which is run to create the debianization.
