Module documentation for 2.2.5

Pipes-Safe v2.2.6

pipes-safe builds upon the pipes library to provide exception safety and resource management.

Quick start

The official tutorial is on Hackage.

Features

  • Resource Safety: Guarantee finalization using finally, bracket, and more

  • Exception Safety: Even against asynchronous exceptions!

  • Laziness: Only acquire resources when you need them

  • Promptness: Finalize resources early when you are done with them

  • Native Exception Handling: Catch and resume from exceptions inside pipes

  • No Buy-in: Mix resource-safe pipes with unmanaged pipes using hoist

Outline

Use pipes-safe for production code where you need deterministic and prompt release of resources in the fact of exceptions or premature pipe termination. pipes-safe lets you safely acquire resources and handle exceptions within pipelines.

Development Status

pipes-safe is mostly stable. Research into prompter finalization alternatives will take place in a separate library.
