Network.Stream

Description

An library for creating abstract streams. Originally part of Gray's\/Bringert's HTTP module.

  • Changes by Robin Bate Boerop robin@bateboerop.name: - Removed unnecessary import statements. - Moved Debug code to StreamDebugger.hs - Moved Socket-related code to StreamSocket.hs.
  • Changes by Simon Foster: - Split Network.HTTPmodule up into to separate Network.[Stream,TCP,HTTP] modules

Synopsis

Documentation

class Stream x whereSource

Streams should make layering of TLS protocol easier in future, they allow reading/writing to files etc for debugging, they allow use of protocols other than TCP/IP and they allow customisation.

Instances of this class should not trim the input in any way, e.g. leave LF on line endings etc. Unless that is exactly the behaviour you want from your twisted instances ;)

Methods

readLine :: x -> IO (Result String)Source

readBlock :: x -> Int -> IO (Result String)Source

writeBlock :: x -> String -> IO (Result ())Source

close :: x -> IO ()Source

closeOnEndSource

Arguments

:: x 
-> Bool 
-> IO ()

True => shutdown the connection when response has been read / end-of-stream has been reached.

type Result a = Either ConnError aSource

This is the type returned by many exported network functions.

bindE :: Result a -> (a -> Result b) -> Result bSource

fmapE :: (a -> Result b) -> IO (Result a) -> IO (Result b)Source
