Module documentation for 1.4.3.0

This package contains libraries for dealing with system processes.

The typed-process package is a more recent take on a process API, which uses this package internally. It features better binary support, easier concurrency, and a more composable API. You can read more about it at https://haskell-lang.org/library/typed-process.
