The gtk2hs-buildtools package

[ Tags: development, gpl, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides a set of helper programs necessary to build the Gtk2Hs suite of libraries. These tools include a modified c2hs binding tool that is used to generate FFI declarations, a tool to build a type hierarchy that mirrors the C type hierarchy of GObjects found in glib, and a generator for signal declarations that are used to call back from C to Haskell. These tools are not needed to actually run Gtk2Hs programs.
