io-streams: Simple, composable, and easy-to-use stream I/O

[ bsd3, data, io-streams, library, network ] [ Propose Tags ]

Overview

The io-streams library contains simple and easy-to-use primitives for I/O using streams. Most users will want to import the top-level convenience module System.IO.Streams, which re-exports most of the library:

import           System.IO.Streams (InputStream, OutputStream)
import qualified System.IO.Streams as Streams

For first-time users, io-streams comes with an included tutorial, which can be found in the System.IO.Streams.Tutorial module.

Features

The io-streams user API has two basic types: InputStream a and OutputStream a, and three fundamental I/O primitives:

-- read an item from an input stream
Streams.read :: InputStream a -> IO (Maybe a)

-- push an item back to an input stream
Streams.unRead :: a -> InputStream a -> IO ()

-- write to an output stream
Streams.write :: Maybe a -> OutputStream a -> IO ()

Streams can be transformed by composition and hooked together with provided combinators:

ghci> Streams.fromList [1,2,3::Int] >>= Streams.map (*10) >>= Streams.toList
[10,20,30]

Stream composition leaves the original stream accessible:

ghci> input <- Streams.fromByteString "long string"
ghci> wrapped <- Streams.takeBytes 4 input
ghci> Streams.read wrapped
Just "long"
ghci> Streams.read wrapped
Nothing
ghci> Streams.read input
Just " string"

Simple types and operations in the IO monad mean straightforward and simple exception handling and resource cleanup using Haskell standard library facilities like Control.Exception.bracket.

Readme for io-streams-1.5.0.0

[back to package description]

The io-streams library contains simple and easy to use primitives for I/O using streams. Based on simple types with one type parameter (InputStream a and OutputStream a), io-streams provides a basic interface to side-effecting input and output in IO monad with the following features:

  • three fundamental I/O primitives that anyone can understand: read :: InputStream a -> IO (Maybe a), unRead :: a -> InputStream a -> IO (), and write :: Maybe a -> OutputStream a -> IO ().

  • simple types and side-effecting IO operations mean straightforward and simple exception handling and resource cleanup using standard Haskell facilities like bracket.

  • code to transform files, handles, and sockets to streams

  • a variety of combinators for wrapping and transforming streams, including compression and decompression using zlib, controlling precisely how many bytes are read to or written from a socket, buffering output using blaze-builder, etc.

  • support for parsing from streams using attoparsec.
