Readme for clr-win-linker-

[back to package description]

This package provides small utility to backport GHC bug fix #12186 for GHC versions < 8.2

It works by being specified as the linker, where it will simply do a find and replace on the supplied linker args before passing the result on to the real linker.

To build & install, run the following:

stack install clr-win-linker

Which will copy the resulting executable to the path, usually 'C:\Users<name>\AppData\Roaming\local\bin'

Then specify as the linker when building other packages like so:

stack build --ghc-options="-pgml clr-win-linker"

And the resulting executables should then get past ghc issue #12186:

stack exec clr-test-app
