withLock :: String -> IO a -> IO aSource

withLockCanFail :: String -> IO a -> IO (Either () a)Source

Tries to perform some task if it can obtain the lock, Otherwise, just gives up without doing the task

withTemp :: (String -> IO a) -> IO aSource

withTemp safely creates an empty file (not open for writing) and returns its name.

The temp file operations are rather similar to the locking operations, in that they both should always try to clean up, so exitWith causes trouble.

withOpenTemp :: ((Handle, String) -> IO a) -> IO aSource

withOpenTemp creates a temporary file, and opens it. Both of them run their argument and then delete the file. Also, both of them (to my knowledge) are not susceptible to race conditions on the temporary file (as long as you never delete the temporary file; that would reintroduce a race condition).

withTempDir :: String -> (AbsolutePath -> IO a) -> IO aSource

withTempDir creates an empty directory and then removes it when it is no longer needed. withTempDir creates a temporary directory. The location of that directory is determined by the contents of _darcsprefstmpdir, if it exists, otherwise by $DARCS_TMPDIR, and if that doesn't exist then whatever your operating system considers to be a a temporary directory (e.g. $TMPDIR under Unix, $TEMP under Windows).

If none of those exist it creates the temporary directory in the current directory, unless the current directory is under a _darcs directory, in which case the temporary directory in the parent of the highest _darcs directory to avoid accidentally corrupting darcs's internals. This should not fail, but if it does indeed fail, we go ahead and use the current directory anyway. If $DARCS_KEEP_TMPDIR variable is set temporary directory is not removed, this can be useful for debugging.

withPermDir :: String -> (AbsolutePath -> IO a) -> IO aSource

withPermDir is like withTempDir, except that it doesn't delete the directory afterwards.

writeLocaleFile :: FilePathLike p => p -> String -> IO ()Source

Writes a file. Differs from writeBinFile in that it writes the string encoded with the current locale instead of what GHC thinks is right.

readLocaleFile :: FilePathLike p => p -> IO StringSource

Reads a file. Differs from readBinFile in that it interprets the file in the current locale instead of as ISO-8859-1.
