Description (last modified by igloo) (diff)
Sometimes you want to develop something using ghci, but a lot of files are just interpreted everytime (which takes a lot time), while they could also had been compiled. (An option is writing a simple script each time (but that's not what users want.) So what I want (and some people on #haskell): an interface to compile everything instead of interpretate it. So inside ghci I want to have an option: :compile which compiles everything (except maybe for the module you are currently working on.) This is how people in #haskell would appreciate it: 21:13 < goron> Is there some command to say in ghci: precompile everything? 21:13 < goron> I had to write some scripts to do it. 21:14 < Lemmih> goron: ghc --make, perhaps. 21:15 < goron> Lemmih: I meant inside ghci. My approach was ghc --make, but I had to include a lot of paths. 21:15 < goron> And it seems something useful. 21:17 < Lemmih> Agreed. 21:18 < Lemmih> But unfortunately I haven't heard of such feature. 21:18 < Somebody else> Yep, would be immensly useful.
