Hello café: I'd very much like to get text-icu working on Windows, as then I could ship pandoc binaries that do proper unicode collation in bibliographies. But I'm having a devil of a time. This may be due to my very limited Windows knowledge. Any help would be appreciated, especially from someone who actually has text-icu working on Windows.
I was able to cabal install text-icu without errors. I used --extra-lib-dirs and --extra-include-dirs to point to the lib and include directories in the 32-bit binary distribution of icu4c. I'm using the latest Haskell Platform, 2012.4.0.0 with ghc 7.4.2. I was also able to build the following simple program that uses text-icu, by doing ghc --make icu.hs: ~~~ -- icu.hs import Data.Text.ICU main = print $ Locale "tr-TR" ~~~ No errors or warnings in either of these steps. But when I try to run the compiled program, icu.exe, I get no output at all. I expected to get a line with 'Locale "tr-TR"', but instead I get nothing -- not even an error or warning. This remains the case if I try ~~~ main = do print "Start" print $ Locale "tr-TR" print "Done" ~~~ 'echo $?' yields False. Any ideas?
