ghc-dump-core: An AST and compiler plugin for dumping GHC's Core representation.

[ bsd3, development, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

ghc-dump is a library, GHC plugin, and set of tools for recording and analysing GHC's Core representation. The plugin is compatible with GHC 7.10 through 8.3, exporting a consistent (albeit somewhat lossy) representation across these versions. The AST is encoded as CBOR, which is small and easy to deserialise.

This package provides the AST and compiler plugin. See the ghc-dump-util package for a useful command-line tool for working with dumps produced by this plugin.


GhcDump.Plugin provides a Core-to-Core plugin which dumps a representation of the Core AST to a file after every Core-to-Core pass. To use it, simply install this package and add -fplugin GhcDump.Plugin to your GHC command-line. See the README for further analysis tips.
