hinstaller: Installer wrapper for Haskell applications

[ library, system ] [ Propose Tags ]

This module allows you to incorporate arbitrary files into a haskell module during compilation. The files are then available to you through functions which allows you to write installer-type applications which write out the files when run. Thus this can be considered in the same model as Java .jar files or executable zip or other file archives.

Note that the current implementation is very inefficient, converting the included files as Strings. On any non-trivial sized file, you'll need to increase GHC's stack with +RTS -K32M -RTS to avoid stack overflows.
