== GHC 6.12 in Lucid ==
Because of the GHC 6.12 transition, some Haskell packages may be uninstallable or out of date in the current (pre-release) lucid archive. IainLane (laney) is managing the transition; please contact him if you would like to help.
Haskell is an advanced purely functional programming language. An open source product of more than twenty years of cutting edge research, it allows rapid development of robust, concise, correct software. With strong support for integration with other languages, built-in concurrency and parallelism, debuggers, profilers, rich libraries and an active community, Haskell makes it easier to produce flexible, maintainable high-quality software.
