Consistent filesystem interaction across GHC versions (deprecated)

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow to host generated Haddocks.

This is a small wrapper around the directory, unix, and Win32 packages, for use with system-filepath. It provides a consistent API to the various versions of these packages distributed with different versions of GHC.

In particular, this library supports working with POSIX files that have paths which can’t be decoded in the current locale encoding.
