Is this a precompiled binary?

Contributor

aisk commented Mar 27, 2013

@adamv yes, and the source code is also available on their homepage.

Contributor

adamv commented Mar 27, 2013

We prefer to compile from source.

Bnfc is writen in Haskell, so it depends on ghc, it's a large package. But people who used bnfc may be not need ghc, it generate can c/c++/java/c#/f#/hs codes as you need.
And the binary is from their website. Should we compile it from source? If do, I will modify this formula.

ghc is bottled. Build from source I think.

This should be changed to build from source; we can provide a bottled version for installation without ghc.

Otherwise, people who need it can keep this formula in an external tap, or download the binary provided directly.
