Hello, Please, find below the first call for papers for IFL 2015. Please forward these to anyone you think may be interested. Apologies for any duplicates you may receive. best regards, Jurriaan Hage Publicity Chair of IFL --- IFL 2015 - Call for papers 27th SYMPOSIUM ON IMPLEMENTATION AND APPLICATION OF FUNCTIONAL LANGUAGES - IFL 2015 University of Koblenz-Landau, Koblenz, Germany In cooperation with ACM SIGPLAN September 14-16, 2015 Scope The goal of the IFL symposia is to bring together researchers actively engaged in the implementation and application of functional and function-based programming languages. IFL 2015 will be a venue for researchers to present and discuss new ideas and concepts, work in progress, and publication-ripe results related to the implementation and application of functional languages and function-based programming. Peer-review Following the IFL tradition, IFL 2015 will use a post-symposium review process to produce the formal proceedings. A

RFC: "Native -XCPP" Proposal

glasgow-user - Wed, 05/06/2015 - 12:08pm
Hello *, As you may be aware, GHC's `{-# LANGUAGE CPP #-}` language extension currently relies on the system's C-compiler bundled `cpp` program to provide a "traditional mode" c-preprocessor. This has caused several problems in the past, since parsing Haskell code with a preprocessor mode designed for use with C's tokenizer has caused already quite some problems[1] in the past. I'd like to see GHC 7.12 adopt an implemntation of `-XCPP` that does not rely on the shaky system-`cpp` foundation. To this end I've created a wiki page to describe the actual problems in more detail, and a couple of possible ways forward. Ideally, we'd simply integrate `cpphs` into GHC (i.e. "plan 2"). However, due to `cpp`s non-BSD3 license this should be discussed and debated since affects the overall-license of the GHC code-base, which may or may not be a problem to GHC's user-base (and that's what I hope this discussion will help to find out). So please go ahead and

Looking for retainers of PINNED objects

glasgow-user - Wed, 04/29/2015 - 5:37am
Hi all, I'm profiling a fairly large program which seems to have a space leak. The heap profiling (-hc) shows that PINNED objects are accumulated over time. In order to check the retainers of the objects, I ran the retainer profiling. Unfortunately it didn't output anything with -hr -hcPINNED. Also, this is just a guess though, the retainer profiling without any filters (I mean just -hr) doesn't seem to include PINNED objects at all. Is there a way to check what retains the PINNED objects? Thanks, Mitsutoshi _______________________________________________ Glasgow-haskell-users mailing list Glasgow-haskell-users< at >

New gtk2hs 0.12.4 release

gtk2hs - Wed, 11/21/2012 - 12:56pm

Thanks to John Lato and Duncan Coutts for the latest bugfix release! The latest packages should be buildable on GHC 7.6, and the cairo package should behave a bit nicer in ghci on Windows. Thanks to all!
