Description (last modified by igloo) (diff)
This came up in comp.lang.haskell recently: http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.haskell/msg/ae69f720377e7a3f
I like the idea.
- if ghci reads the source file, it can read haddock annotations
- if ghci reads the interface file only (for library modules), it needs to find the installed documentation
On the other hand the requested feature is a typical IDE functionality (cf. Eclipse/show source/show javadoc) and it's perhaps a bit much to require that from ghci.
