IOData & IODataMode type

data IOData Source #

Represents either textual or binary data passed via I/O functions which support binary/text mode

Since: Cabal-2.2


IODataText String

How Text gets encoded is usually locale-dependent.

IODataBinary ByteString

Raw binary which gets read/written in binary mode.

hGetIODataContents :: Handle -> IO mode Source #

IOData Wrapper for hGetContents

Note: This operation uses lazy I/O. Use NFData to force all data to be read and consequently the internal file handle to be closed.

toIOData :: mode -> IOData Source #

iodataMode :: IODataMode mode Source #

withIOData :: IOData -> (forall mode. IODataMode mode -> mode -> r) -> r Source #

null :: IOData -> Bool Source #

Test whether IOData is empty

hPutContents :: Handle -> IOData -> IO () Source #

IOData Wrapper for hPutStr and hClose

This is the dual operation ot hGetIODataContents, and consequently the handle is closed with hClose.

Note: this performs lazy-IO.
