Readme for pgsql-simple

Readme for pgsql-simple-0.1.2

pgsql-simple: mid-level bindings to PostgreSQL servers

This library is a mid-level Haskell binding to PostgreSQL servers. It is aimed at speed and ease of use.


This library is BSD-licensed.


This library is written and maintained by Chris Done,

This library is also directly forked from mysql-simple, written and maintained by Bryan O'Sullivan,, with the MySQL parts changed to PostgreSQL, in order to have a consistent API.
