ex-pool: Another fork of resource-pool, with a MonadIO and MonadCatch constraint

[ bsd3, data, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

A fork of 'resource-pool' using MonadIO and exceptions.

The library also contains a number of fixes and enhancements which are not yet included in a Hackage release of the original library. Apart from that, this library is a drop-in replacement for 'resource-pool', useful in cases where a more general monadic type is desirable.

Readme for ex-pool-0.2.1

[back to package description]


A fork of resource-pool providing a high-performance striped resource pooling implementation for Haskell.

The package is intended to be a drop-in replacement for the original version, for when the following properties seem useful:

  • Unlike the original implementation, this library enables actions to be run in MonadIO (instead of plain IO), and uses exceptions for exception handling.

  • Also, a number of yet-to-be-released enhancements and fixes to the original library are included (namely #11, #15, #16).

That is, if you don't need any of the above, use the original package :)
