name: xformat
version: 0.1.1
synopsis:
Extensible, type-safe formatting with scanf- and printf-like functions
homepage: http://github.com/spl/xformat
description:
/Warning:/ This version of the package is very experimental and the interface
may change in later versions. I am seeking comments to improve it.
.
This package is composed of two functions for formatted conversion between
strings and typed values. Each is defined as a type-indexed function using a
type class with multiple parameters and functional dependencies along with
format descriptors.
.
"Text.XFormat.Read" allows one to parse values from a formatted string. Its
functionality is similar to the C @scanf@ function. Unlike @scanf@, however,
the format descriptor is well-typed, ensuring that the output type is
statically known.
.
"Text.XFormat.Show" allows one to print values to a formatted string. Its
functionality is similar to the C @printf@ function. Unlike @printf@, however,
the format descriptor is well-typed, ensuring that the variable number
arguments are statically known.
.
These functions can be easily extended to support new formats and new types.
Extension is simple: define a format descriptor and an instance of the
appropriate class.
