Description (last modified by simonmar) (diff)
We want to specify all of GHC's flags in one place, and from there
- Generate the flag reference section of the documentation
- Generate the code to parse the command-line
- Allow flags to be deprecated, generating a warning
- Have an option to list all the flags that GHC supports (see #1226) for use in command-line completion
- Generate the man page
- Completion in GHCi
This ticket replaces part of #1226.
