List conversions and utilities.


List conversions

fromList :: [c] -> IO (InputStream c) Source

Transforms a list into an InputStream that produces no side effects.

ghci> is <- Streams.fromList [1, 2]
ghci> replicateM 3 ( is)
[Just 1, Just 2, Nothing]

toList :: InputStream a -> IO [a] Source

Drains an InputStream, converting it to a list. N.B. that this function reads the entire InputStream strictly into memory and as such is not recommended for streaming applications or where the size of the input is not bounded or known.

ghci> is <- Streams.fromList [1, 2]
ghci> Streams.toList is
[1, 2]

outputToList :: (OutputStream a -> IO b) -> IO [a] Source

Given an IO action that requires an OutputStream, creates one and captures all the output the action sends to it as a list.


ghci> import Control.Applicative
ghci> (connect $ fromList ["a", "b", "c"]) >>= outputToList

writeList :: [a] -> OutputStream a -> IO () Source

Feeds a list to an OutputStream. Does not write an end-of-stream to the stream.

ghci> os <- Streams.unlines Streams.stdout >>= Streams.contramap (S.pack . show) :: IO (OutputStream Int)
ghci> Streams.writeList [1, 2] os
ghci> Streams.writeList [3, 4] os


chunkList Source


:: Int

chunk size

-> InputStream a

stream to process

-> IO (InputStream [a]) 

Splits an input stream into chunks of at most size n.


ghci> fromList [1..14::Int] >>= chunkList 4 >>= toList

concatLists :: InputStream [a] -> IO (InputStream a) Source

Given an input stream containing lists, produces a new input stream that will yield the concatenation of these lists. See concat.


ghci> Streams.fromList [[1,2,3::Int], [4,5,6]] >>=
      Streams.concatLists >>=

listOutputStream :: IO (OutputStream c, IO [c]) Source

listOutputStream returns an OutputStream which stores values fed into it and an action which flushes all stored values to a list.

The flush action resets the store.

Note that this function will buffer any input sent to it on the heap. Please don't use this unless you're sure that the amount of input provided is bounded and will fit in memory without issues.

ghci> (os, flush) <- Streams.listOutputStream :: IO (OutputStream Int, IO [Int])
ghci> Streams.writeList [1, 2] os
ghci> flush
[1, 2]
ghci> Streams.writeList [3, 4] os
ghci> flush
[3, 4]
