Readme for pointfree-1.0.4.5

Pointfree refactoring tool
==========================

Stand-alone command-line version of the point-less plugin for lambdabot. 
Detailed information about the use of this tool is available at 
http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Pointfree.

Integration with GHCi: Make sure that the directory containing the pointfree 
executable is in your PATH environment variable and add the following line to 
your GHCi configuration file:

:def pf \str -> return $ ":! pointfree \"" ++ str ++ "\""

Or modify the line to point directly to the executable. Invoke pointfree with 
commands like

:pf \x y -> x + y

Status
======

Not all of the testsuite passes, but one failure is due to a bug in HSE (see 
http://code.google.com/p/haskell-src-exts/issues/detail?id=24 ) and many of the 
others I'm not sure if they ever succeeded, and are mostly failures to 
optimise, rather than actual correctness bugs.

Future directions
=================

It would be nice to make pointfree a library that operated on ASTs, or at the 
very least on strings.
