Guide to GHC Extensions

As of March 2020, School of Haskell has been switched to read-only mode.

A guide to the wide variety of Haskell extensions available in GHC, aimed at people who know most of the Standard Haskell core.

The extensions which are currently covered are:

The following extensions will probably never be covered (usually because they were deprecated and/or removed from GHC sufficiently long ago):

  • AlternativeLayoutRule
  • AlternativeLayoutRuleTransitional
  • Generics
  • JavascriptFFI
  • MonoPatBinds
  • NewQualifiedOperators
  • RelaxedLayout
  • SafeImports

Most of the information these tutorials present is derived from the relevant chapter of the GHC User’s Guide, as well as selected parts of the GHC source code.
