The Haskell Users Gofer System is a Haskell interpreter, it was originally commonly known as just "Gofer" but when Gopher arrived on the scene the author started to use HUGS instead and re-booted the version number sequence but dropped the "hugsc" Haskell to C compiler that was shipped with gofer. HUGS 1.3 and later conform to the Haskell 98 standard, earlier Gofer versions have extensions that are unique to it and have never been supported by any other Haskell tools.
