Synopsis

# Documentation

For a module modname of type HscSource, determine the list of extra "imports" of other requirements which should be considered part of the import of the requirement, because it transitively depends on those requirements by imports of modules from other packages. The situation is something like this:

unit p where signature A signature B import A

unit q where dependency p[A=A,B=B] signature A signature B

Although q's B does not directly import A, we still have to make sure we process A first, because the merging process will cause B to indirectly import A. This function finds the TRANSITIVE closure of all such imports we need to make.

findExtraSigImports, but in a convenient form for GhcMake and TcRnDriver.

Given a UnitId, make sure it is well typed. This is because unit IDs come from Cabal, which does not know if things are well-typed or not; a component may have been filled with implementations for the holes that don't actually fulfill the requirements.

INVARIANT: the UnitId is NOT a InstalledUnitId

Top-level driver for signature instantiation (run when compiling an hsig file.)

Top-level driver for signature merging (run after typechecking an hsig file).

Given a local ModIface, merge all inherited requirements from requirementMerges into this signature, producing a final TcGblEnv that matches the local signature and all required signatures.

Top-level driver for signature instantiation (run when compiling an hsig file.)

Given tcg_mod, instantiate a ModIface from the indefinite library to use the actual implementations of the relevant entities, checking that the implementation matches the signature.
