See: \url{http://www.haskell.org/communities/05-2010/html/report.html#sect5.3.3}.

% Mueval is a code evaluator for Haskell; it employs the GHC API as provided by the Hint library (\url{http://haskell.org/communities/11-2008/html/report.html#hint}). It uses a variety of techniques to evaluate arbitrary Haskell expressions safely \& securely. Since it was begun in June 2008, tremendous progress has been made; it is currently used in Lambdabot live in \#haskell). Mueval can also be called from the command-line.

% Mueval features:
% \begin{itemize}
% \item A comprehensive test-suite of expressions which should and should not work
% \item Defeats all known attacks
% \item Optional resource limits and module imports
% \item The ability to load in definitions from a specified file
% \item Parses Haskell expressions with haskell-src-exts and tests against black- and white-lists
% \item A process-level watchdog, to work around past and future GHC issues with thread-level watchdogs
% \item Cabalized
% \end{itemize}

% Since the November 2009 HCAR report, the internals have been cleaned up further, a number of minor bugs squashed, tests added, and mueval updated to avoid bitrot.

% We are currently working on the following:
% \begin{itemize}
% \item Refactoring modules to render Mueval more useful as a library
% \item Removing the POSIX-only requirement
% \item Merging in Chris Done's \href{http://github.com/chrisdone/mueval-interactive}{mueval-interactive} fork, which powers \url{http://tryhaskell.org/}
% \end{itemize}
