Creating the Unix domain socket:

import System.Socket
import System.Socket.Type.Stream
import System.Socket.Family.Unix

s <- socket :: IO (Socket Unix Stream Unix)

Creating the address for binding/connecting

address <- case socketAddressUnixPath "example.sock" of
             Just addr -> pure addr
             Nothing -> putStrLn "invalid pathname for socket"

Binding to a socket with a filename creates a socket in the filesystem, but does not unlink it after close called. You should handle deleting links yourself. ## Portability Linux and OS X are supported.
