abcBridge: Haskell bindings for ABC

Directory structure:

src/        Haskell bindings source tree.
cbits/      C source tree for bindings.
include/    Header files used.
tests/      Test scripts.
scripts/    Build system scripts.


We have attempted to make cabal install work out of the box. They have been tested on 64-bit Mac OS X with XCode, 32-bit and 64-bit CentOS Linux 5.x and 6.x, and 32-bit and 64-bit Windows XP with MinGW. On Windows, the 64-bit build is less well tested than the 32-bit build, so try a 32-bit build if you have trouble with the 64-bit build.

ABC Sources

The main task of the build system is to retrieve and build the ABC C sources before building the Haskell bridge. We do this by downloading the latest version of a branch of the ABC project from BitBucket. See [Setup.hs](./Setup.hs) for the logic relating to this step, including the URL from which the sources are fetched. If you run "cabal sdist", ABC sources will be fetched and unpacked, and then repacked into a combined source distribution with the Haskell code. The resulting sdist tarball can be compiled without needing to fetch ABC sources from BitBucket.

The task of building the ABC sources is performed by the "scripts/build-abc.sh". It mostly involves selecting some compiler flags depending on the arch and OS and then invoking the ABC makefile.

Run "scripts/clean-abc.sh" if you want to remove all ABC source artifacts and force a redownload from the BitBucket project.
