The cloud-haskell package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

Cloud Haskell is a set of libraries that bring Erlang-style concurrency and distribution to Haskell programs. This project is an implementation of that distributed computing interface, where processes communicate with one another through explicit message passing rather than shared memory.

This package is just a convenient wrapper around the distributed-process-platform, distributed-process and network-transport packages, so they can be installed with a single cabal install cloud-haskell command.

The package also comes with flags to enable different Network.Transport and Cloud Haskell (network topology) backends.
