GHC

PPA description

Convenient packages for GHC releases from http://www.haskell.org/ghc/ (plus cabal-install packages) which can be installed side by side for working/testing with multiple/older GHCs and/or with http://travis-ci.org

GHC is split into 4 packages,

 ghc-$VER (core package, contains ghc and executables such as haddock)
 ghc-$VER-dyn (contains dynamic libraries for version prior to GHC 7.8)
 ghc-$VER-prof (contains profiling libs)
 ghc-$VER-htmldocs (contains generated HTML Haddock output)

The GHC packages install into `/opt/ghc/$VER/` so in order to use them, one way is to bring a particular GHC version into scope by placing the respective `/opt/ghc/$VER/bin` folder early in the PATH environment variable.

There's also a `/opt/ghc/bin` (& `/opt/cabal/bin`) folder which contains version-suffixed symlinks to installed GHC versions for convenient use with cabal (e.g. "cabal new-build -w ghc-7.8.4"), as well as symlinks managed by update-alternatives(1) which can be configured via

  sudo update-alternatives --config opt-ghc
  sudo update-alternatives --config opt-cabal

Note that `/opt/ghc/bin` also contains a default symlink for `cabal`, so it's enough to include `/opt/ghc/bin` in your PATH to get access to both `cabal` and `ghc`.

*NEW* You can find packages built specifically for Debian 8 (Jessie) at
http://downloads.haskell.org/debian/
