IOSpec provides a library containing pure, executable specifications
of a few functions from the IO monad.

Build instructions:

$ runhaskell Setup.lhs configure
$ runhaskell Setup.lhs build
$ runhaskell Setup.lhs install

for more instructions.


Please have a look at the latest documentation available from:

To build the Haddock API execute the following command:
$ runhaskell Setup.lhs haddock

This will require Haddock 2.0

Check out the examples directory for the following examples:

* Echo.hs - illustrates how to test the echo function.
* Queues.hs - an implementation of queues using IORefs.
* Channels.hs - an implementation of channels using MVars.
* Sudoku.hs - a parallel Sudoku solver that uses STM and MVars
based on Graham Hutton's version of Richard Bird's "Solving Sudoku".

Every example contains quite some comments, explaining how to use
the library.
