The preprocessor-tools package

[Tags:bsd3, library]

This library provides a quick-and-dirty (but often effective) method for extending Haskell's syntax using a custom preprocessor. It parses Haskell into a bare-bones AST with just enough knowledge of the syntax to preserve nesting, and then allows transformations on the AST.

See the package ixdopp for an example of how to do this.
