Based on the "Networking" category

Do you think we are missing an alternative of network or a related project?

Add another 'Networking' Package

README

network Build Status Build status

To build this package directly from git, you must run autoreconf -i. And then use cabal configure; cabal build or stack build.

Support Policy

GHC

The network package support 3 major versions of GHC only. This means that the current stable version and two previous stable versions are supported.

Windows

We use MSYS to build this package on Windows. To use the network package on Cygwin, use stack.

Coding

.hs files

If you need C macros created by "configure" or CALLCONV/SAFE_ON_WIN, put

#include "HsNetDef.h"

"HsNet.h" does now work well since Mac's cpp sucks.

.hsc files

If you need #peek, #poke and others, create a .hsc file with

#include "HsNet.h"

HsNet.h includes HsNefDef.h and necessary C structures. Unfortunately, hsc2hs does not convert C macros. So, if you use CALLCONV/SAFE_ON_WIN, the following is also necessary:

##include "HsNetDef.h"
