What's in this library?

A pair of fold-like datatypes that consume Producers from pipes and can be constructed in a variety of ways, in particular from the more versatile folds in Gabriel Gonzalez's foldl package.

The Fold1 consumes a single Producer, while the Fold2 datatype consumes two Producers concurrently.

Why was this library created?

I wanted a fold-like datatype for Producers that allowed "bracketing" operations like "withFile".

I also wanted to be able to fold two Producers concurrently (for example, merge the piped stdout & stderr streams of an external process into one unified stream).

Finally, I wanted the fold-like datatype to have a "failure option" baked in.

If you don't need any of that, you are better off using pipes and/or foldl by themselves.

Where can I find working examples for this library?

There are none yet.


- depend on microlens
- compatibility with foldl 1.2.

- removed lens-family dependency.
- solved bom problem.

- Made it compile in GHC 7.8.4.

- Added "eachLine" function.

- Solved bug in "combined", added a test.

- Dropped unneeded deps.

- More efficient Applicative for Fold2

- Added folds of two Producers.
- Name changes.
