when i save

data EinPunkt = Punkt Float Float

instance (Eq,Show) EinPunkt where
   Punkt x y == Punkt x' y' = x == x' && y == y'
   show Punkt x y = "x: " ++ show x ++ ", y: " ++ show y

as point.hs and load it using WinGHCi 1.0.6 afterwards, i get

  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is already fixed in GHC 7.6, bug #5951. (You compile your code by writing "instance Eq EinPunkt" and "instance Show EinPunkt" separately.)
