.hs File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: Haskell Script
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .hs. Files with the file extension .hs can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .hs files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .hs file?

The HS file extension is identified with Haskell Script, which is known as a program’s source code. Haskell is a general functional programming language with strong static typing and non-strict semantics. Function is the main focus of its programming language which is based on Haskell Curry’s (American Logician and Mathematician) observation. Haskell Curry is well known for his Combinatory Logic Concept. Haskell’s concept that a proof is a program and that the formula proven is the programs’ type. LHS (Literate Haskell Source) file is similar to Haskell Script. The first edition of Haskell was released in 1980 and the release of Haskell 98 in 1997 was the climax in a series of language definitions. Haskell 98 is focused on specifying a portable, minimal and stable form of the language and a library as benchmark for teaching and as the basis for any future extensions. Haskell 98 was widely accepted via incorporating experimental features.

how to open a .hs file?

Launch a .hs file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .hs file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .hs files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .hs file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .hs file will open the correct application.

Haskell Platform

Haskell Platform

The Haskell Platform is the programming application for open-source and commercial Haskell development that highlights the stability and interoperability of your code. The latest version includes GHC 7.4.1 [an optimizing Haskell native code compiler], GHCi 7.4.1 [interactive REPL environment and bytecode interpreter for Haskell] and The GHC runtime [a multi-core language virtual machine that provides parallel futures and sparks, fast lightweight threads, software transactional memory, parallel garbage collector, core affinity control, etc.]. The Platform provides useful developing tools such as Cabal and Cabal-install that build and distribute Haskell programs and libraries, haddock that documents for Haskell, GHCi debugger that debugs for Haskell, Happy parser generator that builds efficient parsers, Alex lexer generator, hsc2hs foreign language binding tool that binds Haskell to C libraries for work automation, GHC profiler and Haskell code coverage that generates information of code coverage and statistics for Haskell. Code coverage will determine how well your test suite functions, and which code part executes at a given time. The Haskell Platform only uses widely-used and stable libraries and tools from the pool of Haskell packages or HackageDB or simply, Hackage. Each package is formatted in Cabal. The current software release is version 2012.2.0.0. The next release will be version 2012.4.0.0.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .hs files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .hs. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
