cpuid: Binding for the cpuid machine instruction on x86 compatible processors

[ foreign-binding ] [ Propose Tags ]

This module provides the function cpuid for accessing information about the currently running IA-32 processor. Both a function for calling the cpuid instruction directly, and some convenience functions for common uses are provided. This package is only portable to IA-32 machines.

Readme for cpuid-0.2.3

[back to package description]
* README file for cpuid binding

This small Cabal package provides a Haskell binding to the "cpuid"
machine instruction on modern IA-32 processors.  

** Usage


  runghc Setup.hs configure
  runghc Setup.hs build
  runghc Setup.hs install

for building and installing system-wide, or

  runghc Setup.hs configure --prefix=$HOME/haskell-modules
  runghc Setup.hs build
  runghc Setup.hs install --user

for building and installing in directory $HOME/haskell-modules.

Just import module "System.Cpuid" into your Haskell file and use

  ghc --make FILENAME

to compile your program.

The "tests" directory contains a small test program for the module and
demonstrates its usage. You may compile this program by installing with

  cabal install -fbuildExamples cpuid

There is also a C version for this test program, to test the overheads
of Haskell's FFI.

Happy Haskell hacking,
