A Unix domain socket API for the socket library.
Creating the Unix domain socket:
import System.Socket import System.Socket.Type.Stream import System.Socket.Family.Unix s <- socket :: IO (Socket Unix Stream Unix)
Creating the address for binding/connecting
address <- case socketAddressUnixPath "example.sock" of Just addr -> pure addr Nothing -> putStrLn "invalid pathname for socket"
Binding to a socket with a filename creates a socket in the filesystem, but does not unlink it after
close called. You should handle deleting links yourself.
Linux and OS X are supported.
