THIS README COPIED FROM THE diagrams PACKAGE Graphics.Rendering.Plot provides an embedded domain-specific language (EDSL) for creating plots rendered with Cairo For some examples of use, see http://code.haskell.org/plot/examples . ------------------------------------------------------------------------ To install the Plots library: 1. Get the dependencies The plots library uses Haskell bindings to the Cairo vector graphics library. In order to build the plots library, you will first need the following: * The Cairo library itself. This is probably available through your system's package manager and may even already be installed. On Ubuntu, for example, it is available from the 'libcairo' package. * The Haskell cairo bindings, which are packaged as part of gtk2hs. cabal install gtk2hs-buildtools cabal install gtk * The colour library, which is available from Hackage. If you use the cabal-install build option described below, the colour library will be downloaded and installed for you automatically. 2. Build * Option 1: use cabal-install If you have cabal-install, *after* installing gtk2hs, you can install plots and the remaining dependencies with cabal-install: cabal install plot Optionally, you can also pass options such as --user --prefix=$HOME to install locally. * Option 2: manual build Once all the dependencies are built and installed, you can build and install plots as follows: runhaskell Setup.lhs configure --prefix=$HOME --user runhaskell Setup.lhs build runhaskell Setup.lhs install (Optionally, you can omit the --prefix and --user arguments to the configure step, and run the install step with 'sudo' in order to install the library systemwide.) 3. Building Haddock documentation (recommended) runhaskell Setup.lhs haddock Once the documentation has been built, you can access it by pointing your browser to dist/doc/html/plot/index.html.
