Cross-platform File handling for Unix/Mac/Windows

This is a Haskell package of cross-platform file handling for Unix/Mac/Windows. The current Haskell modules have following shortcomings: - getModificationTime exists in System.Directory. But getAccessTime, getStatusChangeTime, getCreationTime do not exist. - getModificationTime returns obsoleted type, ClockTime. It should return modern type, UTCTime, I believe. - Some file functions are missing. A function to tell the link counter, for instance. - Path separator is not unified. Even though Windows accepts '/' as a file separator, getCurrentDirectory in System.Directory returns '\\' as a file separator. So, we need to specify regular expression like this: "[/\\]foo[/\\]bar[/\\]baz". - getHomeDirectory returns HOMEDRIVE/HOMEPATH instead of the HOME environment variable on Windows. This package aims to resolve these problems.
