Subject: Eddie - a tool for shell scripting with haskell
Date: Sunday 31st July 2011 05:01:10 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Eddie 0.2 is now available. The easy install is via cabal, but source is available from the project page on googlecode (http://eddie.googlecode.com). Eddie is a tool that runs Haskell functions of type String -> String as shell filters. Eddie was developed as an experiment in using functional languages for shell scripting. The reasons and results of that are discussed in my blog entry at http://blog.mired.org/2011/07/eddie-shell-scripting-with-haskell.html. Version 0.2 cleaned up error handling and added a flag to allow proper processing of binary files on Windows. Version 0.1 was released without a formal announcement.
