I deduce what stanza definitions are but I was struggling to find an exact definition and explanation why this is used in Haskell/Plutus.

  • What exactly is a stanza?
  • Can you compile code Haskell/Plutus code without using them?

I recommend you this article:


Take into account that stanzas is a cabal thing (not Haskell, not Plutus). However Plutus projects can be created using cabal. Basically, it's the way a cabal file is organized: Libraries, executables, test-suites, etc.
