The haskell-docs package
Given a module name and a name, it will find and display the documentation of that name.
$ haskell-docs Data.List.Split split Split a list according to the given splitting strategy. This is how to "run" a Splitter that has been built using the other combinators.
You should ensure that you have
in your .cabal/config so that the necessary .haddock files are generated.
Haddock is very sensitive to the GHC version, and so too will this program be, to GHC, and to Haddock. I suggest installing like this:
cabal install haskell-docs --constraint haddock==2.10.0
But replace the 2.10.0 with the version that haddock --version gives you.
I could perhaps instead have a flag for each GHC release back a few versions.
USING WITH GHCI
> :def doc \input -> return (":!haskell-docs " ++ input) > :doc System.IO getContents base The getContents operation returns all user input as a single string, which is read lazily as it is needed (same as hGetContents stdin).
Add the above :def to your user .ghci to have it on start-up.
