no-buffering-workaround: Workaround for GHC bug #2189.

[ apache, console, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package exists as a workaround for GHC bug #2189, "hSetBuffering stdin NoBuffering doesn't work on Windows". It provides functionality for reading from standard input without buffering, in a way that works under GHC on Windows as well as other configurations. This is useful for key-driven console applications such as roguelikes.
