#2210 closed bug (fixed)

ghci gets into weird state if loading a module with a bad LANGUAGE pragma

Try loading a module like this into ghci:

{-# LANGUAGE BreakMe #-}

This gets ghci into an odd wedged state, with a strange prompt, in which Prelude is not available.

  • Component changed from Compiler to GHCi
  • difficulty set to Unknown
  • Milestone set to 6.10 branch

Thanks for the report. GHCi is actually perfectly happy, it just hasn't got Prelude in scope. If you type :m + Prelude then all will be well.

However, we ought to be consistent with what we do when we fail for other reasons (i.e. Prelude ought to be in scope in this case).
