Bug#583169: ITP: haskell-sendfile -- Haskell portable sendfile library

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org
Owner: mascellani@poisson.phc.unipi.it

   Package name: haskell-sendfile
        Version: 0.6.1
Upstream Author: Matthew Elder <matt@mattelder.org>
            URL: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/sendfile

    Description: Haskell portable sendfile library

This Haskell library exposes zero-copy sendfile functionality in a
portable way. sendfile is a non standard system call that copies data
between one file descriptor and another. This library uses the native
implementations where possible (for example, under Linux or FreeBSD) and
provides an Haskell replacement in other cases, thus providing a
portable interface.

Rationale: it is a dependency of happstack (bug #569501).

Regards, Giovanni.
