Readme for xattr

Readme for xattr-0.5

This implements bindings to SGI's libattr, which provides access to extended attributes on Unix systems for filesystems that support them. In particular, this provides access to extended attributes on ext3/4 and xfs on Linux (as well as other filesystems that support this interface). For more information about extended attributes, see the man page for attr(5).

To build this code, you'll need to have the libattr development headers installed. On Fedora/RHEL the package name is libattr-devel. On Debian/Ubuntu the package name is attr-dev.

You can find the latest stable version of this code on HackageDB. The bleeding-edge version of the code is hosted at git://github.com/eklitzke/libattr-hs.git.
