I am pleased to announce the hackage release of iteratee-0.1.0. This
library implements enumerators and iteratees as proposed by Oleg
Kiselyov (http://okmij.org/ftp/Haskell/Iteratee/). Significant
differences from his original code include:
- Seeking is allowed within any monad; the specific RBIO monad is
neither required nor provided.
- Data buffers may be of arbitrary types as specified by the
StreamChunk type class. This allows for user-provided buffer types
(e.g. arrays, vectors, etc.). Instances are provided for lists and
ByteStrings. This, in conjunction with seeking, allows for efficient
processing of binary data in addition to text.
- Cross-platform support. Currently this is slightly less efficient
than the Posix operations, but should run on any system targeted by a
Although basic I/O specific enumerators are provided, this library
should allow seamless interoperation with user-provided iteratees and
enumerators. I hope that this flexibility will encourage a much wider
adoption of enumerator-based IO in the Haskell community.
This library is experimental, and the API is subject to change if it
will seem advantageous. Patches are welcome: the darcs repo is at
http://inmachina.net/~jwlato/haskell/iteratee . Discussion and
comments are also always welcome.
I would like to acknowledge several individuals for their
contributions and suggestions:
