Haskell bindings for Microsoft's Z3 (unofficial)
These are Haskell bindings for the Z3 theorem prover. We don't provide any high-level interface (e.g. in the form of a Haskell eDSL) here, these bindings are targeted to those who want to build verification tools on top of Z3 in Haskell.

Supported versions and version policy
Z3 releases come out often and sometimes introduce backwards incompatible changes. In order to avoid #ifdef-ery, we only try to support a reasonably recent version of Z3, ideally the latest one. We use semantic versioning to reflect which version(s) are supported:
<z3-version> indicates which version of Z3 is supported, it is computed as
x*100+y for Z3 x.y. For example, versions 408.y.z of these bindings are
meant to support versions 4.8.* of Z3.
This version policy is in line with Haskell's PVP.
Preferably use the z3 package.
- Install a Z3 4.x release. (Support for Z3 3.x is provided by the 0.3.2 version of these bindings.)
Just type cabal install z3 if you used the standard locations for dynamic libraries (/usr/lib) and header files (/usr/include).
- Otherwise use the --extra-lib-dirs and --extra-include-dirs Cabal flags when installing.

Here is an example script that solves the 4-queen puzzle:
