Current Limitations

  • Does not process CPP properly [should be sorted soon]
  • Does not process Lhs files properly
  • Does not properly process multi-line strings in WARNING and DEPRECATED pragmas [ see https://phabricator.haskell.org/D907 which missed the cut for 7.10.2 due to AST change ]
  • Does not preserve the unicode * character, reducing it to a standard one.


*Note that all licence references and agreements mentioned in the ghc-exactprint README section above are relevant to that project's source code only.
