The libconfig package

[Tags:bsd3, library, test]

Low-level FFI bindings to the libconfig configuration file library.

This library only binds to version 1.4.9 of the libconfig library, which is known as libconfig9 in Debian-like distributions, including Ubuntu. It will not work with older versions of libconfig, including the libconfig8 distributed in Ubuntu 12.04.

See below for several flags you can use to reduce dependencies if this is a problem for you. If you disable everything, this package will only depend on transformers, text, hashable and deepseq.


Dependencies base (>=4.6 && <4.9), binary (>=0.5 && <0.8), cereal (==0.4.*), cereal-text (>=0.1), deepseq (>=1.3), hashable (==1.2.*), profunctors (==4.*), text (>=1.1 && <1.3), text-binary (>=0.1), transformers (>=0.3), transformers-compat (>=0.3) [details]

prismsBuild prisms along with lenses (adds a dependency on the 'profunctors' package). If tests are enabled, this flag also adds a dependency on 'lens' for the test suite. If this flag is disabled, no tests for Language.Libconfig.Optics will be run at all.EnabledAutomatic
binaryProvide instances for Data.Binary.Binary from the 'binary' package. This is done by Generics and will not work on GHCs older than 7.8, because they ship with binary version 0.5 or older.EnabledAutomatic
cerealProvide instances for Data.Serialize.Serialize from the 'cereal' package.EnabledAutomatic

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