cabalQuery: A simple tool to query cabal files.

[ bsd3, development, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

Command line access to the cabal package description files.

cabalQuery allows you to query one or more .cabal files for fields that may be useful in other contexts, such as a build system, where you may need the version number, lincense, authors, copyright, etc.. in a programatic way, but without access to the Cabal libraries.
