The ghc-heap-view package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

This library provides functions to introspect the Haskell heap, for example to investigate sharing and lazy evaluation.

It has been inspired by (and taken code from) the vacuum package and the GHCi debugger, but also allows to investiage thunks and other closures.

The work on this package has been supported by the Deutsche Telekom Stiftung
