dh_haskell_depends - calculates Haskell dependencies on Cabalized libraries SYNOPSIS
dh_haskell_depends [debhelper options] [-Xpackage] [--exclude=package] [file ...] DESCRIPTION
dh_haskell_depends is a debhelper program that helps with calculating dependencies for building Haskell libraries. It automates building libraries for the different supported Haskell systems in Debian. This script writes the debian/$package.substvars file, including in it the haskell:Depends, haskell:Recommends, haskell:Suggests and haskell:Extra-Depends variable. So, to use this package, include in the Depends: field in debian/control ${haskell:Depends}, and do the same for Recommends, Suggests and Extra-Depends. BUGS
hugs and ghc are the only supported targets at the moment. Cabal does not yet support nhc98. SEE ALSO

dh_python - calculates Python dependencies and adds postinst and prerm Python scripts (deprecated) SYNOPSIS
dh_python [debhelperoptions] [-n] [-V version] [moduledirs...] DESCRIPTION
Note: This program is deprecated. You should use dh_pysupport or dh_pycentral instead. This program will do nothing if debian/pycompat or a Python-Version control file field exists. dh_python is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating the ${python:Depends} substitutions and adding them to substvars files. It will also add a postinst and a prerm script if required. The program will look at Python scripts and modules in your package, and will use this information to generate a dependency on python, with the current major version, or on pythonX.Y if your scripts or modules need a specific python version. The dependency will be substituted into your package's control file wherever you place the token ${python:Depends}. If some modules need to be byte-compiled at install time, appropriate postinst and prerm scripts will be generated. If already byte- compiled modules are found, they are removed. If you use this program, your package should build-depend on python. OPTIONS
module dirs If your package installs Python modules in non-standard directories, you can make dh_python check those directories by passing their names on the command line. By default, it will check /usr/lib/site-python, /usr/lib/$PACKAGE, /usr/share/$PACKAGE, /usr/lib/games/$PACKAGE, /usr/share/games/$PACKAGE and /usr/lib/python?.?/site-packages. Note: only /usr/lib/site-python, /usr/lib/python?.?/site-packages and the extra names on the command line are searched for binary (.so) modules. -V version If the .py files your package ships are meant to be used by a specific pythonX.Y version, you can use this option to specify the desired version, such as 2.3. Do not use if you ship modules in /usr/lib/site-python. -n, --noscripts Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts. CONFORMS TO

Are the brains of the UNIXoid working correctly?

Today I saw the topic. sum-even-numbers-1-100 At that time, it was already closed but not the point. Other thoughts came to mind. All newcomers to Haskell are afraid that when they study it, their brains will turn inside out. I did not notice anything like that. And all because the brains of all... (4 Replies)
