    4  1. Optimize your set up for build speed.  Having to wait 10 minutes because you added an export to a critical module is no fun. 
     4 1. [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/building/index.html The Building Guide] is very good, read the appropriate parts. 
     5 1. Optimize your set up for build speed.  Having to wait 10 minutes to compile because you added an export to a critical module is no fun. 
    56   1. Use MSYS, not cygwin.  MSYS is '''much''' faster. 
    67   1. Do not use -O to compile GHC while you are making heavy changes.  Once things compile smoothly and you want to test it, compile with optimization. (on my machine, adding -O triples the compile time for the whole compiler) 
    7  1. If you do a 'make tags' then you can go right to the definition of a function (from any module) using alt-. in emacs 
     8 1. If you do a 'make tags' then you can go right to the definition of a function (from any module) using alt-. in emacs.
