Readme for copilot-c99-0.2.4

[back to package description]


This package is a Copilot back-end that targets Atom Atom is a Haskell DSL that generates real-time C code.

Copilot is a stream (i.e., infinite lists) domain-specific language (DSL) in Haskell that compiles into embedded C. Copilot is similar in spirit to languages like Lustre. Copilot contains an interpreter, multiple back-end compilers, and other verification tools.


Please see the files under the Examples directory in the Copilot for a number of examples showing the syntax, use of libraries, and use of the interpreter and back-ends. The examples is the best way to start.


The Copilot library is cabalized. Assuming you have cabal and the GHC compiler installed (the Haskell Platform is the easiest way to obtain these), it should merely be a matter of running

     cabal install copilot-c99

However, we strongly recommend you install Copilot, which installs copilot-c99 and other packages automatically. Execute

     cabal install copilot


copilot-c99 depends on the Atom to generate hard real-time C code.


copilot-c99 is available on Hackage.

Sources for each package are available on Github as well. Just go to Github and search for the package of interest. Feel free to fork!
