3. The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015)
Happy

    A dyslexic acronym for "A Yacc-like Haskell Parser
   generator".

   An LALR1 grammar parser generator for Haskell.  Happy is
   written in Haskell, uses a parser generated by itself, and can
   be compiled using ghc, hbc or gofer.  Happy uses an
   implementation of monadic IO built on top of stream IO, but
   this should change when the Haskell 1.3 standard has been
   implemented.
