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 stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

High-level file download based on URLs

Download web content as strict or lazy bytestringrs, strings, HTML tags, XML, RSS or Atom feeds or JSON, using the curl network library.

Importing the library:

import Network.Curl.Download

Loading a webpage as a ByteString:

doc  <- openURI "http://haskell.org"

Loading from a file:

doc  <- openURI "file:///tmp/A.hs"

Loading a HTML page as a list of tags:

tags <- openAsTags "http://haskell.org"

Loading a HTML page as XML:

tags <- openAsXML "http://haskell.org"

Loading an RSS or Atom feed:

feed <- openAsFeed "http://haskell.org"

These data types can the be processed further with the XML, Feed and TagSoup libraries.
