Happy is a parser generator for Haskell. Given a grammar specification in BNF, Happy generates Haskell code to parse the grammar. Happy works in a similar way to the yacc tool for C.

[back to package description]


Happy is a parser generator for Haskell 98 (and later).

Build Status

Happy is built using Cabal. First install GHC, then:

  $ cabal configure
  $ cabal build
  $ cabal install

Complete documentation can be found in the directory 'doc', in DocBook XML format. To format the documentation, the DocBook-Tools suite (see http://wiki.docbook.org/DocBookTools) provides all the bits & pieces you need. Alternatively, pre-formatted documentation is available from Happy's homepage (URL above).

The directory 'examples' contains some example parsers that use Happy.
