The network package

[ Tags: bsd3, library, network ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides a low-level networking interface.

In network-2.6 the Network.URI module was split off into its own package, network-uri-2.6. If you're using the Network.URI module you can automatically get it from the right package by adding this to your .cabal file:

flag network-uri
  description: Get Network.URI from the network-uri package
  default: True

  -- ...
  if flag(network-uri)
    build-depends: network-uri >= 2.6, network >= 2.6
    build-depends: network-uri < 2.6, network < 2.6

That is, get the module from either network < 2.6 or from network-uri >= 2.6.
