I think a manual page for ghc would be really nice. I like every binary on my system to have a manual page with its description and ghc doesn't seem to offer one (at least not that I could find). Thank you all for your attention.

I've attached the we use to generate a manpage (@VERSION@ gets substituted in it, then it's used thus:

{ head -1 ghc/docs/users_guide/flags.xml; \

echo "<!DOCTYPE sect1 [<!ENTITY ndash \"-\"> \

<!ENTITY ldquo \"\`\"> \ <!ENTITY rdquo \"'\">]>"; \

tail -n +2 ghc/docs/users_guide/flags.xml; } \

| xsltproc debian/flags.xsl - > debian/ghc6.1


Thanks Ian

I've now wired this into the build system.

Set GhcManpages=YES in mk/ if you want to build the manpage.

Thanks Ian
