Hackage Matrix CI

Language C is a haskell library for the analysis and generation of C code. It features a complete, well tested parser and pretty printer for all of C99 and a large set of C11 and clang/GNU extensions.

[Skip to Readme]





Choose the new smaller, split-up base package.


Use ByteString as InputStream datatype


Data.Generics available in separate package.


Turn on all warnings for building (development)


Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info
