Portable Haskell 98 compiler


nhc98 is a fully-fledged compiler for Haskell 98, the standard lazy
functional programming language. It based on Niklas Roejemo's nhc13, a
compiler for an earlier version of the language. Written in Haskell,
it is small and very portable, and aims to produce small executables
that run in small amounts of memory. Is a pattern becoming obvious
here? :-) It also comes with extensive tool support.
