Hugs (Haskell User's Gofer System), also Hugs 98, is a bytecode interpreter for the functional programming language Haskell. Hugs is the successor to Gofer, and was originally derived from Gofer version 2.30b. Hugs and Gofer were originally developed by Mark P. Jones, now a professor at Portland State University.
Hugs comes with a simple graphics library. As a complete Haskell implementation that is portable and simple to install, Hugs is sometimes recommended for new Haskell users.
Hugs deviates from the Haskell 98 specification in several minor ways. For example, Hugs does not support mutually recursive modules. A list of differences exists.
The Hugs prompt (a Haskell REPL) accepts expressions for evaluation, but not module, type or function definitions. Hugs can load Haskell modules at start-up.
"Hugs" is a song written and recorded by American comedy hip hop group The Lonely Island with American R&B and hip hop singer Pharrell Williams for The Lonely Island's third studio album The Wack Album.
The single premiered in North America on Saturday Night Live on May 17, 2014.

The airline finally rerouted them through Baltimore, which made Johnny even more nervous, which had him poking at Kikit, who came crying to me, and all I could do was to leave another message for Dennis and put the children on the plane with lingering hugs and the sworn word of the flight attendant that she would hand-deliver them to Dennis at Logan.
