The network package

[ Tags: bsd3, library, network ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides a low-level networking interface.

In network-2.6 the Network.URI module was split off into its own package, network-uri-2.6. If you're using the Network.URI module you can automatically get it from the right package by adding this to your .cabal file:

flag network-uri
  description: Get Network.URI from the network-uri package
  default: True

  -- ...
  if flag(network-uri)
    build-depends: network-uri >= 2.6
    build-depends: network < 2.6

If you want to use other modules from the network package while using the Network.URI modules from the network-uri package, add a network > 2.6 clause to the first build-depends line.

network Build Status

To build this package using Cabal directly from git, you must run autoreconf before the usual Cabal build steps (configure/build/install). autoreconf is included in the GNU Autoconf tools. There is no need to run the configure script: the setup configure step will do this for you.
