High-level IO operations on files/directories, utilizing type-safe Paths. This uses hpath-directory under the hood.

This package is part of the HPath suite, also check out:


The motivation came during development of hsfm in order to have a proper high-level API of file related operations, while utilizing type-safe Paths.


  • high-level API to file operations like recursive directory copy
  • still allowing sufficient control to interact with the underlying low-level calls
  • unit-testing exceptions (because yes, people may rely on them)

Note: this library was written for posix systems and it will probably not support other systems.
