hint: Runtime Haskell interpreter (GHC API wrapper)

[ bsd3, compilers-interpreters, language, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This library defines an Interpreter monad. It allows to load Haskell modules, browse them, type-check and evaluate strings with Haskell expressions and even coerce them into values. The library is thread-safe and type-safe (even the coercion of expressions to values). It is, essentially, a huge subset of the GHC API wrapped in a simpler API.

Build Status Hackage

This library defines an Interpreter monad. It allows to load Haskell modules, browse them, type-check and evaluate strings with Haskell expressions and even coerce them into values. The library is thread-safe and type-safe (even the coercion of expressions to values).

It is, essentially, a huge subset of the GHC API wrapped in a simpler API.

Example

Check example.hs to see a simple but comprehensive example (it must be run from the examples directory).
