utf8-prelude: Variants of Prelude and System.IO with UTF8 text I/O operations

[ bsd3, deprecated, library, program, system ] [ Propose Tags ]
Deprecated

If you want your Haskell code to have UTF8 text IO then use libraries which have UTF8 text IO. In case of Prelude with this package only three mechanical steps needed:

  • In all modules import Prelude explicitly and replace every occurrence of Prelude with UTF8Prelude.

  • Use the NoImplicitPrelude language extension.

  • In all modules replace every occurrence of System.IO with System.UTF8IO.

utf8-test tests several functions regarding UTF8 text I/O. Note: utf8-test creates a file named writeFile_test.txt (5,3K) in the current working directory.

utf8-prelude is based on utf8-string: http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/utf8-string/index.html

This package will be obsolete *after* GHC 6.10: http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Status/Releases
