Eddie - a tool for shell scripting with haskell

Eddie 0.2 is now available. The easy install is via cabal, but source
is available from the project page on googlecode

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

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.
