The splice package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

A library that implements most efficient socket to socket data transfer loops for proxy servers on all operating systems.

On GNU/Linux, it exports the zero-copy system call c_splice() ( in System.IO.Splice.Linux.

On other operating systems, it only exports a portable Haskell implementation.

A unified sockets API for all operating systems is available in Network.Socket.Splice.
