This looks like:
- the source of the FreeArc archiver;
- ghc, a Haskell compiler;
- gtk2hs, probably how to use GTK from Haskell;
- a minimum install of MinGW, a C compiler suite for Windows.
Wherever you got it from, probably that's where the answer is how to use it.

[...] I think you can compile a special version of FreeArc that protects all archives created with it with a password. I found this: https://translate.google.com/transla.../fa_protect.5/ .

It's literally just an exe file, run the exe file, add a password and then the programcompiles your custom freearc.

Now you have a custom version of FreeArc (the executables and DLL's other than compile.exe) that always encrypts archives with that "secret word".

I get the with the default Arc.exe (at a different address). (I selected compression methods 101, 201, 301, 401, 501; entered "1111" for a password; selected the FA_Protect_v2 directory as input.) That's a general protection fault (dereference of a NULL/dangling pointer).

This custom FreeArc is not compatible with the cls-*.dll libraries in the Knight Compressor 1.0 package, in particular with cls-precompmt.dll. (If you remove this DLL, you get no error message.) Probably a version mismatch. Don't use them together.
