Package: ghc-turtle @ 1.5.15


Shell programming, Haskell-style


Turtle is a reimplementation of the Unix command line environment in Haskell so that you can use Haskell as both a shell and a scripting language. Features include:

  • Batteries included: Command an extended suite of predefined utilities.

  • Interoperability: You can still run external shell commands.

  • Portability: Works on Windows, OS X, and Linux.

  • Exception safety: Safely acquire and release resources.

  • Streaming: Transform or fold command output in constant space.

  • Patterns: Use typed regular expressions that can parse structured values.

  • Formatting: Type-safe printf-style text formatting.

  • Modern: Supports text and system-filepath.

Read "Turtle.Tutorial" for a detailed tutorial or "Turtle.Prelude" for a quick-start guide. Turtle is designed to be beginner-friendly, but as a result lacks certain features, like tracing commands. If you feel comfortable using turtle then you should also check out the Shelly library which provides similar functionality.
