My ghci config file

A former member
Post #: 1
As requested during tonight's meetup: https://gist.github.com/cwvh/6657386­

This config file will allow you to query the hoogle database via :h and :doc from within ghci:

>>> :h a -> b -> a
Searching for: a -> b -> a
Prelude const :: a -> b -> a
Data.Function const :: a -> b -> a
Prelude seq :: a -> b -> b

>>> :h const
Searching for: const
Prelude const :: a -> b -> a
Data.Function const :: a -> b -> a
>>>


>>> :doc const
Prelude const :: a -> b -> a

Constant function.

From package base
const :: a -> b -> a

I looked into ghci customization a bit and found this page.

One of the cool bits is it embeds a call to a utility that automates the argument removal process I discussed last night. So it can do things like:
>>> :pl (\x -> (x + 3))
(3 +)
>>> :pl \x -> ((x, "hello"))
flip (,) "hello"
>>> :pl \f x -> ((x, f x))
ap (,)
Which I think is pretty neat and useful.
