ANN: eddie 0.5

Eddie 0.5 has been uploaded to hackage and it's googlecode repository (http://eddie.googlecode.com/).

Changes include adding a file processing mode to complement the line processing mode, and a list processing mode that works with both of those. Errors are now processed more in line with Unix conventions, with the messages going to standard error and the return code being set to indicate what went wrong. Finally, testing is now done with shelltestrunner so they can be run on Windows.

Eddie is a tool for applying haskell filters to text files via the unix command line. While this can be done via ghc, eddie provides the framework for dealing with lines and files and in general fitting into the Unix command line environment. It allows the user to think about the filter they are working on, and not the mechanics of dealing file names, etc.
