IPC[1] is a simple package for inter-process communication in Haskell. This package uses named BSD sockets (not file backed) to provide basic communications between two processes. Any data structure that is an instance of Binary can use this interface with ease.

Future Work

  • IPC will currently truncate data that serializes to greater than 4k. A system that will encapsulate the messages and fragement them as necessary (transparent to the user of this API) should be made.
  • Haddock currently fails, must fix this!
