Cabal- A framework for packaging Haskell softwareSource codeContentsIndex
MaintainerIsaac Jones <>

Uses the parsed command-line from Distribution.Setup in order to build Haskell tools using a backend build system based on make. Obviously we assume that there is a configure script, and that after the ConfigCmd has been run, there is a Makefile. Further assumptions:

We assume the configure script accepts --with-hc, --with-hc-pkg, --prefix, --bindir, --libdir, --libexecdir, --datadir.
We assume that the default Makefile target will build everything.
We assume there is an install target. Note that we assume that this does *not* register the package!
We assume there is a copy target, and a variable $(destdir). The copy target should probably just invoke make install recursively (e.g. $(MAKE) install prefix=$(destdir)/$(prefix) bindir=$(destdir)/$(bindir). The reason we can't invoke make install directly here is that we don't know the value of $(prefix).
We assume there is a dist target.
We assume there is a register target and a variable $(user).
We assume there is an unregister target.
We assume there is a docs or doc target.

data License Source
This datatype indicates the license under which your package is released. It is also wise to add your license to each source file using the license-file field. The AllRightsReserved constructor is not actually a license, but states that you are not giving anyone else a license to use or distribute your work. The comments below are general guidelines. Please read the licenses themselves and consult a lawyer if you are unsure of your rights to release the software.
GPLGNU Public License. Source code must accompany alterations.
LGPLLesser GPL, Less restrictive than GPL, useful for libraries.
BSD33-clause BSD license, newer, no advertising clause. Very free license.
BSD44-clause BSD license, older, with advertising clause.
PublicDomainHolder makes no claim to ownership, least restrictive license.
AllRightsReservedNo rights are granted to others. Undistributable. Most restrictive.
OtherLicenseSome other license.
UnknownLicense StringNot a recognised license. Allows us to deal with future extensions more gracefully.
