Description

Stream utilities for working with concurrent channels.

Synopsis

# Channel conversions

inputToChan :: InputStream a -> Chan (Maybe a) -> IO () Source #

Writes the contents of an input stream to a channel until the input stream yields end-of-stream.

chanToInput :: Chan (Maybe a) -> IO (InputStream a) Source #

Turns a Chan into an input stream.

chanToOutput :: Chan (Maybe a) -> IO (OutputStream a) Source #

Turns a Chan into an output stream.

concurrentMerge :: [InputStream a] -> IO (InputStream a) Source #

Concurrently merges a list of InputStreams, combining values in the order they become available.

Note: does not forward individual end-of-stream notifications, the produced stream does not yield end-of-stream until all of the input streams have finished.

This traps exceptions in each concurrent thread and re-raises them in the current thread.

Create a new pair of streams using an underlying Chan. Everything written to the OutputStream will appear as-is on the InputStream.

Since reading from the InputStream and writing to the OutputStream are blocking calls, be sure to do so in different threads.
