status: experimental

dead-code-detection detects dead code in haskell projects.

This project is still in an early stage. Currently only those language constructs have been implemented that I have stumbled across in projects I used it on. If the tool encounters a language construct that it doesn't understand yet, it will crash. (I think this is the best behavior since ignoring unimplemented language constructs would easily result in false positives and false negatives.) If you use dead-code-detection on any project and it doesn't work due to a not implemented language construct, please consider opening an issue on github.
