Readme for zeromq-haskell-0.7.1

This library provides Haskell bindings to zeromq (http://zeromq.org).

Current status

This software currently has beta status, i.e. it had seen limited testing.

Version 0.7.1 - Removes unix dependency

Verison 0.7.0 - Changes semantics of poll to return a list of the same length as it's parameter to allow identification of Sockets by index. PollEvent gets another constructor None to denote the absence of polling events.

Version 0.6.0 - This version renames "with" to "withContext" and introduces a new "withSocket" resource wrapper. The API is otherwise identical to 0.5.0

This software requires zeromq version 2.1.x.

Installation

As usual for Haskell packages this software is installed best via Cabal (http://www.haskell.org/cabal). In addition to GHC it depends on 0MQ of course.

Notes

zeromq-haskell mostly follows 0MQ's API. One difference though is that sockets are parameterized types, i.e. there is not one socket type but when creating a socket the desired socket type has to be specified, e.g. Pair and the resulting socket is of type Socket Pair. This additional type information is used to ensure that only options applicable to the socket type can be set, hence ZMQ_SUBSCRIBE and ZMQ_UNSUBSCRIBE which only apply to ZMQ_SUB sockets have their own functions (subscribe and unsubscribe) which can only be used with sockets of type Socket Sub.

Other differences are mostly for convenience. Also one does not deal directly with 0MQ messages, instead these are created internally as needed.

Examples

The test folder contains some simple tests mostly mimicking the ones that come with 0MQ.

Bugs

If you find any bugs or other shortcomings I would greatly appreciate a bug report, preferably via http://github.com/twittner/zeromq-haskell/issues or e-mail to toralf.wittner@gmail.com
