The utf8-prelude package
utf8-prelude provides variants of Prelude and System.IO using UTF8 text I/O operations, making UTF8 text I/O even simpler.
Three simple steps to switch to UTF8 with your Haskell code:
In all modules import Prelude explicitly and replace every occurrence of Prelude with UTF8Prelude.
Use the NoImplicitPrelude language extension.
In all modules replace every occurrence of System.IO with System.UTF8IO.
utf8-prelude also provides a basic testing tool: utf8-test tests several functions regarding UTF8 text I/O. Note: utf8-test creates a file named writeFile_test.txt in the current working directory.
utf8-prelude is based on utf8-string: http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/utf8-string/index.html
This package will be obsolate with GHC if GHC will have porper unicode support for text I/O. It is planned beyond GHC 6.10: http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Status/Releases
