Streams is an I/O library designed to eventually replace the current I/O facilities based on using Handles. The main advantage is its strong modular design using typeclasses. It consists of small independent modules, each implementing one type of stream (file, memory buffer, pipe, etc.) or one part of common stream functionality (buffering, char encoding, locking, etc.). 3rd-party librarie can easily add new stream types and new common functionality. Other benefits of the new library include support for streams functioning in any monad, Hugs and GHC compatibility, high speed, and an easy migration path from the existing I/O library. It is heavily based on the HVIO module written by John Goerzen.
