[edit] 2.7 Shell

[edit] 2.7.1 Haskell shell examples

HsShellScript
A library for using Haskell for tasks which are usually done by shell scripts, e.g. command line parsing, analysing paths, etc. It can be used also for tasks usually done GetOpt (a module for GNU-/POSIX-like option handling of commandline arguments). But also for many other things.
Jim Mattson's Hsh Haskell shell
on the software page by Ralf Hinze. Hsh seems to be written in Haskell 1.3.
HaSh
a nascent project page on a shell scripting system
Monadic i/o and UNIX shell programming
UNIX pipes as IO monads.
shell-haskell
start an external shell command asynchronously, write data to its standard input and read results from its standard output. There is a Darcs repository with a cabalized version.
hashell
shell with some scripting capabilities to use Haskell as a scripting language.
Haskell Shell (HSH)
HSH, the Haskell shell. Things are still very preliminary in many ways, but this version already lets you:
  • Run commands
  • Pipe things between commands
  • Pipe command input/output into and out of pure Haskell functions
  • Pure Haskell functions are as much a first-class citizen as is grep or cat
shelly
a convenient library for shell scripting using modern (Text) and safe (sytem-filepath) techniques and featuring good error messages.
