# hat: The Haskell tracer, generating and viewing Haskell execution traces

hat-trans transforms Module.hs into Hat/Module.hs such that when the program is
executed, a trace file Programname.hat is generated.
Various tools (hat-trail, hat-observe, hat-explore ...) then allow viewing the
trace file in different ways, to locate a bug or understand how a program works.
This is the first release of Hat under Cabal.
It is the least possible update to make Hat work with Cabal.
Hat 2.07 works only with ghc for Haskell 98 (plus a few extensions) and
the standard Haskell 98 libraries plus some Haskell 2010 libraries.
Although it should build on any operating system,
most viewing tools use ASCII console escape sequences and they open xterms;
hence they will only work well under Unix and X11.
Installation:
> cabal -v install
Flag -v allows you to see what is going on. Building takes a long time
(one module has 25.000 lines of code). Don't worry about numerous warning messages.
Use:
> hat-make MyProgram.hs
transforms and compiles all modules of your program and produces the tracing
version Hat/MyProgram.
Run your program
> Hat/MyProgram
which will produce trace files MyProgram.hat*
Use the viewing tools to explore the trace:
> hat-trail * hat-observe * hat-explore /... MyProgram
There is documentation in the "docs" folder, but much of it is outdated.
There are a few small programs for exploring tracing in the "examples" folder.
