Readme for headergen-

[back to package description]


An application written in Haskell for generating headers for Haskell source files.


Usage: headergen {help [all|COMMAND]|init|create LANGUAGE TEMPLATE MODULE}

* creates a new module in current working directory.
headergen init
* initializes a new .headergen.def.
headergen help
* shows this help information
headergen help COMMAND
* shows detailed help information

Supported Languages

As for now only Haskell is supported. It is planned to implement support for more languages in future releases.


  • Extract help message interface from command module level to avoid mutual recursion over module level.
  • Implement reading of cabal files instead of using own setting files.
  • Implement a parser for updating existing source files.
  • Implement reading of file associations from file.
  • Implement support for more languages.
