Haskell: using ghci with Console2

by Gregor Uhlenheuer on November 7, 2011

One great thing about haskell and and its Glasgow compiler is ghci, the interactive compiler. Using ghci you can quickly test and reevalute code you have just written.

Today I just installed the Haskell platform for Windows. After first trying the ghci I just remembered how crappy cmd.exe is. But rescue is near - go ahead and setup Console2 to use ghci as one tab setting.

How to setup Console2

  1. First install Haskell platform: http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/windows.html
  2. Open Console2 and go to Edit → Settings …
  3. Create a new tab setting
    • Set shell to cmd.exe /K "ghci.exe"
