libssh2: FFI bindings to libssh2 SSH2 client library (

[ bsd3, library, network ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides FFI bindings for SSH2 client library named libssh2.

As of version 0.2 all blocking is handled in Haskell code rather than in C code. This means that all calls are now interruptable using Haskell asynchronous exceptions; for instance, it is now possible to use System.Timeout in combination with "libssh2".

Note on usage on Windows: On Windows you MUST compile your executable with -threaded or libssh2 will NOT work. We have tested libssh2 on Windows using, with and compiled from source (be sure to pass the shared option to the configure script for openssl to enable the shared libraries).
