Pretty : A Haskell Pretty-printer library
Pretty is a pretty-printing library, a set of API's that provides a way to easily print out text in a consistent format of your choosing. This is useful for compilers and related tools.
It is based on the pretty-printer outlined in the paper 'The Design of a Pretty-printing Library' by John Hughes in Advanced Functional Programming, 1995. It can be found here.
This library is BSD-licensed.
The library uses the Cabal build system, so building is simply a matter of running:
cabal sandbox init cabal install "QuickCheck >= 2.5 && < 3" cabal install --only-dependencies cabal configure --enable-tests cabal build cabal test
We have to install
QuickCheck manually as otherwise Cabal currently
throws an error due to the cyclic dependency between
cabal test freezes, then run
cabal test --show-details=streaming instead. This is due to a
bug in certain
versions of Cabal.
We are happy to receive bug reports, fixes, documentation enhancements, and other improvements.
Please report bugs via the github issue tracker.
