About
-----

[HSlackBuilder] is a simple application, at the present time only
`cabal2slackBuild`, that will generate all needed scripts to build
from the source a [Hackage] package released in the [Cabal] format and
create a [Slackware] package to be install with [Slackware] `pkgtools`.

Download
--------

[HSlackBuilder] can be downloaded from [Hackage]:

        http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/hslackbuilder

Installation
------------

To install simply run:

        tar xvfz hslackbuilder-0.0.1.tar.gz
        cd hslackbuilder-0.0.1
        runhaskell Setup.lhs configure --prefix=/usr/local
        runhaskell Setup.lhs build
        runhaskell Setup.lhs install # possibly to be run as root

Running
-------

Give a [Cabal] packages example-0.1.tar.gz, run with:

        cabal2slackBuild example-0.1.tar.gz

This will generate:

        doinst.sh
        example.SlackBuild
        slack-desc

if `cabal2slackBuild` is run with the `-r` option also a
`slack-required` will be generated. This file will contain *only* the
[Haskell] packages needed for compiling `example`. If one of these
packages is missing, instead of producing the slackBuild scripts,
`cabal2slackBuild` will produce a warning.

This is the output of `cabal2slackBuild -h`

        Usage: cabal2slackBuild [OPTION...] FILE
        The file must be a .tar.gz of a cabal package.
        Options:
          -h, -?           --help                       This help
          -V               --version                    Show version information
          -b build number  --build-number=build number  The build number
          -a architecture  --arch=architecture          The architecture
          -p               --hs-prefix                  Use a 'hs-' prefix in package name to
                                                        avoid conflicts with
                                                        slackware package names
          -r               --required                   Generate a slack-required from the
                                                        dependency field


Known Bugs and Issues
---------------------

1. At the present time no [Haddock] documentation is generated for
executables. See:

        http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/hackage/ticket/250

2. [Haddock]-2.0.0.0 doesn't support the `--hoogle` option anymore.

3. The [Cabal] `haddock --hyperlink-source` option seems to be broken:

         http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/hackage/ticket/248
