Hi dear fellow ghc users,

I simply wanted to let people know that I apparently succeeded in
compiling  a patched version of HDirect with GHC 6.8.1 (with typelibs
At least, I could compile some of the examples and had very simple test
programs launch/connect to Word and Excel using automation. I lack time
to really clean up the library (I did not made any Cabal patch and
currently directly link with the « .a » and « .o » of the various
modules), but feel free to contact me if you need some help to use
hdirect with GHC 6.8.1.

Sincerely yours,


Hi Fernand,

Congratulations! I once tried to compile HDirect with GHC 6.6.1 but finally stopped trying after having made a bunch of unsuccessful modifications. It's just too bad this library is no more maintained. Having a clean and maintained COM interface would be really valuable for Haskell.

I would be interested in getting the patches for compiling HDirect with GHC 6.8.1.
