Ticket #4825 (closed bug: fixed)
DLLs not documented consistently
|Reported by:||Orphi||Owned by:||igloo|
|Type of failure:||None/Unknown||Difficulty:|
|Test Case:||Blocked By:|
Currently half of the GHC 7.0.1 User Guide claims that dynamic linking works on Windows now, and the other half of the User Guide still claims that it doesn't work.
That's the general problem. Now here is the hard data:
* Section 1.5.4: Correctly status that DLLs work now.
* Section 4.12 (top): Incorrectly claims that you can't build packages as DLLs.
* Section 4.12.4: Describes how dynamic libraries are searched for, but only for Unix and Mac OS. It mentions that Windows is the third alternative, but omits actually describing it.
* Section 11.6 (top): Incorrectly claims that you can't build packages as DLLs. (The rest of this section talks about building DLLs callable from other languages, which is presumably still correct.)
I believe this list is complete, but I may be wrong.
